Cowboys Picked to Beat Bills

Buffalo's fast start has faded to a slow griind and they have another tough road test in Dallas, where they are road underdogs on the Week 10 NFL odds list.

While the Cowboys opened as 5.5-point favorites, many Bills-Cowboys bettors are watching the over under number, which started life around 48 at most online sportsbooks. That's because many reds indicate this could be an OVER bet.

The OVER is 8-2 in the past 10 Buffalo road games and it's also 10-3 in the past 13 Dallas home games. Buffalo has also played 5 straight overs as an NFL dog.
