Cowboys Have Been An Abysmal Bet

Dallas Cowboys NFL

This season has been a trainwreck for the Dallas Cowboys. “America’s Team” is a lowly 4-10 SU and have been just as bad for bettors with a 4-9-1 ATS record. The Cowboys will visit the Buffalo Bills this Sunday, a team that has only been a marginally better play this season.

Shark Bites
  • The UNDER is 10-5 in Buffalo’s past 15 home games.
  • The Cowboys are 2-3-1 ATS in their last eight games against the Bills.
  • Tyrod Taylor has 12 passing touchdowns and one interception in his past eight games.

Apparently it’s Kellen Moore’s show in Dallas now. The fourth-year quarterback has not seen a single snap before last week when he went 15-for-29 with one touchdown and three interceptions. Dallas fans should not hold their breath for any sort of miracles; let’s just say that. The Cowboys have had one of the worst offenses in the NFL this season with the team averaging just 17.6 points per game and have not scored more than 20 points since Week 11.

The Bills defense has not been good lately, but last week they were downright hard to watch. The Bills secondary, without starter Stephon Gilmore for the rest of the season, was torched all day long and allowed Kirk Cousins to post the third-highest passer rating in team history.

Opening Odds & Computer Pick

The Buffalo Bills were -5.5-point favorites at odds maker shops such as Bovada, while the NFL total was set at 43 for over under totals betting.
