Dallas Hasn’t Won at home in Over a Year, But…

When the Cowboys have stayed home lately, they’ve been a complete stay-away for bettors as they’re an atrocious 2-10-2 ATS in their last 14 games at home and their last straight-up win at Jerry’s World was September 13 of last season. However, Dallas should have a great shot at putting an end to that losing streak when the 0-2, Jay Cutler-less Bears come to town for the Sunday nighter.

Shark Bites
  • The visiting team is 4-1 SU and ATS in its last 5 games in this matchup.
  • The total has gone UNDER in 4 of the Cowboys' last 5 games against teams with a losing record.
  • Dallas is 1-3-2 ATS in its last 6 games.

The Bears are on a decent run of covering the spread on the road, going 6-2 ATS in their last eight games outside of Chicago and will have a bit more room to work with with Jay Cutler on the sidelines nursing a sprained thumb. The game originally opened with a 4.0-point spread in favor of Dallas, but that number was readjusted to 7.0 following Cutler’s injury in the Bears’ home loss to the Eagles on Monday. Brian Hoyer will fill in for Cutler and will make his first-ever start vs Dallas.

Totals bettors will want to take a close look at the UNDER in this one. The Bears have only managed to score 28 points this season and that was with Cutler taking the majority of the snaps. With the total hovering around the 44.5 point mark, it should be noted that the teams have combined to go over that total just once this season.
