PUBLIC BETTING: As of this writing, 59% of the betting tickets are on the Cowboys to cover the spread and 51% of the money is also on Dallas for Sunday.

INJURY REPORT: The Seahawks remain injury-riddled, especially on defense. Kam Chancellor (neck), Richard Sherman (Achilles) and Cliff Avril (neck) are all out for the year. That said, there is some good news. K.J. Wright is probable after missing last week's loss to the Rams with a concussion and Bobby Wagner (hamstring) isn't even listed on this week's injury report.

For the Cowboys, Tyron Smith is still questionable, as are Demarcus Lawrence (back) and La'el Collins (back). But running back Ezekiel Elliott is set to return from his six-game suspension this week.

OUR PREDICTION: The Seahawks allowed over 40 points last week in an ugly loss to the Rams and they remain beat-up defensively. That said, I don't expect Russell Wilson and Co. to be held to only 7 points like they were a week ago. With Dallas now at near-full strength, the Cowboys should put up plenty of points as well. I love the over in what should be a fun game.

The over is 5-2 in the Seahawks' last seven games played in the month of December, is 5-1 in their last six road games versus an opponent with a winning home record, and is 15-7 in their last 22 games when facing a team with a winning record. On the other side, the over is 5-2 in the Cowboys' last seven games against an opponent with a winning record.
