|Cowboys||+1 (-105)||55½ (-110)||+105|
Betting Arizona Cardinals
The Cards are the road faves according to the best online sportsbooks. The Cardinals looked impressive in a Week 1 upset of the 49ers. They have been hit and miss since then. They destroyed the New York Jets and Washington Redskins, but that’s low hanging fruit. They’ve also lost to a pair of mediocre squads in the Carolina Panthers and the Detroit Lions.
The Cardinals enter this the game at 3-2. Arizona has lost to the Lions and Panthers but picked up wins over the 49ers, Washington and Jets. The Cardinals have shown glimpses of potential this season. Arizona’s biggest loss was by 10 points to the Panthers. They were within three of the Lions, so the Cards have stayed competitive in every game. A 30-10 win over the Jets last weekend should boost their confidence.
In the win over New York, Kyler Murray had 380 yards with a TD and one interception. Kenyan Drake 60 rushing yards and a TD. DeAndre Hopkins had 131 yards and a TD on six receptions.
Betting Dallas Cowboys
The Boys are the home dogs per the best sportsbooks. Dallas leads the NFL with 488 yards per game and is third with 32.6 points per game. They might not be quite as productive without Prescott under center. But they should be able to get the job done at home.
Former Bengal Andy Dalton will man the rudder for the Cowboys offense. He isn’t as dynamic as Prescott, but remains a capable passer. Dalton went 71-60-2 as a starter for Cinci and he has a much better arsenal at his disposal in Dallas.
The Cowboys are struggling with a bunch of injuries on their offensive line. But pressure is nothing new for Dalton. The season-ending injury to Arizona’s best pass rusher Chandler Jones will make the Red Rifle’s job easier.
The Cowboys are 2-3. Dallas lost games to the Rams, Seahawks and Browns but have recorded wins over the Falcons and Giants. They’ve looked pretty inconsistent this year, even though just one of their losses was by more than seven points.
Making matters worse is the season-ending injury to quarterback Dak Prescott. He was hurt in the 37-34 win over the Giants. In that win Prescott had 166 yards and one interception. CeeDee Lamb had 124 yards on eight grabs. Ezekiel Elliott had 19 carries for 91 yards and two TDs.
Arizona Cardinals vs. Dallas Cowboys NFL Pick
According to the best sportsbooks, the Cardinals are 3-0-1 ATS in their last four games in Week 6. 8-2-2 ATS in their last 12 on the road. is 6-2 ATS playing a team with a losing record. And 5-2-1 ATS in their last eight games overall.
Meanwhile, the Cowboys are 6-1 ATS in their last seven games in Week 6. 4-1 ATS in their last five Monday games. 0-5 ATS in their last five overall. And 0-4 ATS in the last four following an ATS loss.
Losing Prescott is a huge hit, but the Cowboys should still have enough in the way of offense to keep up with Arizona.
The Cowboys have a seemingly bad defense. Part of the reason they allow so many points is that of their offense scores very quickly. That fast-striking offense will lead to many possession changes. That in turn should result in enough points for the total to go over.
