Public Betting Trends

According to oddsmakers from online sports book BetNow.eu, the Colts are 3-point favorites to beat the Cowboys. The total, meanwhile, sits at 47 points. As of this writing, 55% of the public betting tickets are on the Cowboys to cover the point spread.

Dallas Cowboys

Dak Prescott completed 42-of-54 passes for a career-high 455 yards, three touchdowns, and two picks in the Cowboys' Week 14 overtime win over the Eagles. It was an abysmal first half for Prescott and the offense as a whole as Dak committed three turnovers (one fumble, two picks) on his own. The end result was a third-place spot on the Cowboys' all-time list with 455 yards passing. His 42 completions in victory were also good for a new franchise record. All three scores expectedly went to Amari Cooper (10/217/3), who exploded for touchdowns of 28, 75, and 15 yards. Outside of the weekly missed deep-ball to Michael Gallup (4/24), Dallas' target tree has essentially been whittled down to Cooper and Ezekiel Elliott (12/79 receiving) in recent weeks. Now facing a division-clenching situation in Week 15, Prescott will remain a low-end QB1 against the Colts.

Indianapolis Colts

Andrew Luck completed 27-of-41 passes for 399 yards with two touchdowns and one interception while adding 16 yards on six carries Sunday in the Colts’ Week 14 win over the Texans. Luck took two sacks for a loss of 13 yards. Coming off a dismal game in Jacksonville, Luck was much better against Houston, particularly in the first half when he blew up for 237 yards on 17-of-28 passing. Playing on the road against a swarming Texans pass rush, Luck showed impressive pocket presence, consistently extending plays with his feet. His lone interception came on a deflected pass that probably should have been caught by Zach Pascal. Luck was most successful throwing to T.Y. Hilton, who exploded for 199 yards despite playing through foot and shoulder injuries. Sunday marked Luck's sixth 300-yard passing game of the season. The surging Colts return home to host Dallas in Week 15.

NFL Betting Trends

Dallas

The over is 6-0 in the Cowboys’ last six games after accumulating more than 350 total yards in their previous contest.

Indianapolis

The under is 4-0 in the Colts’ last four games after accumulating more than 250 yards passing in their previous game.

Prediction

The under is 11-2 in the Cowboys’ last 13 games played in the month of Dallas, is 21-6 in their last 27 road games and 15-7 in their last 22 games overall. The Colts are averaging 32.1 points per game in their last nine games if you discount their shutout loss to the Jaguars but they could struggle against that vaunted Dallas defense. It also wouldn’t be surprising to see the Cowboys struggle offensively despite coming alive in the fourth quarter against a banged-up Eagles defense a week ago.
