Road Teams Cruising Between DAL-MIA

Tony Romo Cowboys

It’s been a lost season for the Dallas Cowboys, as injuries have taken their toll and then some en route to a 2-7 SU record. Bettors backing the ‘Boys this year are also hurting, as the Cowboys are just 2-7 ATS on the year. Next up on the docket is a date with the Miami Dolphins in the Sunshine State on Sunday.

Shark Bites
  • The Cowboys are 8-0 SU in their last eight games in Week 11.
  • The Dolphins are 1-6 SU in their last seven games after a win.
  • The Cowboys are 1-4 ATS in their last five games in November.

Home field advantage hasn’t meant much in this series. Visiting teams are 6-2 SU in the previous eight meetings between the clubs. The ‘Fins hung on to beat Philadelphia 20-19 in Week 9 while covering as 5.5-point pups, but have looked underwhelming for the majority of 2015 as many thought they’d be a contender this season.

Cowboys’ bettors can take some solace in knowing they have won outright in four out of their last five meetings with the Dolphins. 

Tony Romo is expected to return from a fractured collarbone injury. In two career starts vs Miami, Romo has four touchdown passes and two interceptions.
