Bucs vs. Cowboys Prediction
Are the Cowboys a good bet to cover as a touchdown-sized favorite against the Bucs tonight at 8:30PM ET for Sunday Night Football?
According to oddsmakers from online sports book BetDSI, the Cowboys are 7-point home favorites versus the Bucs while the over/under currentlys its at 46.5 points. Dallas had opened as a 7.5-point favorite before the line was bet down, while the total hit the board at 46 before being bet up to 46.5.
TAMPA BAY KEY TRENDS: The Bucs have covered the spread in five straight games and are 4-0 against the number in their last four road games as well. They're 4-0 at the betting window in their last four games after allowing less than 15 points in their previous game and are 7-3 against the spread in their last four games after allowing less than 15 points in their previous game as well.
DALLAS KEY TRENDS: The Cowboys are 4-1 against the number in their last five home games, are 9-3 against the spread in their last 12 games overall, but are just 3-8-1 against the number in their last 12 games when taking on a team with a winning record. They're also just 1-4 at the betting window in their last five home games when playing an opponent with a winning road record.
OUR PREDICTION: The Buccaneers are one of the hottest teams in the league right now, thanks in large part to their defensive play. Dak Prescott, meanwhile, hasn't thrown for 200 yards in any of his last three games as defenses continue to figure him out. This point spread is set way too high for a game that should be close in the fourth quarter. With how well the Bucs are playing both on the field and at the betting window right now, I love taking the points with the road dog tonight.
