Dallas has won four games in a row, including a 20-17 overtime victory over the Houston Texans as five-point home favorites last week, while going UNDER the betting total for the third time in five opportunities this year. The Cowboys will certainly try to run the ball with running back DeMarco Murray, which is important to consider when making your pro football picks, as he leads the league with 670 yards and has scored five times. He’ll be facing a stop unit that paces the NFL in giving up just 62.3 rushing yards per game. Dallas is 5-5 SU and 6-4 ATS in weeks 5 through 9 the last two-plus seasons.
The Cowboys have enough offensive weapons to challenge the Seahawks, especially if signal-caller Tony Romo can continue his strong play, as he’s produced a 98.5 passer rating through five contests. He has completed 69.2 percent of his passes for 1,260 yards and nine touchdowns with five interceptions, while connecting with star wide receiver Dez Bryant 32 times for 376 yards and four scores through the air.
Seattle returns home after an impressive 27-17 victory over the Washington Redskins as seven-point road favorites on ESPN’s Monday NIght Football, while going UNDER the betting total for a second consecutive affair. The Seahawks have won 19 of 20 games at CenturyLink Field with third-year quarterback Russell Wilson being in charge, as he leads the NFC in completing 70.3 percent of his passes, with Romo sitting right behind him in that all-important statistical category. Seattle is 11-5 SU and 12-4 ATS when playing teams with a winning record since 2012.
The Seahawks will maintain balance offensively in this matchup by getting the ball to running back Marshawn Lynch, who has 306 rushing yards on the season. Seattle knows the importance of this game due to being tied for first in the NFC West division with the Arizona Cardinals, while knowing the San Francisco 49ers are lurking just a game back.
Sports bettors will likely play the total, as the OVER is 5-0 in the Seahawks’ last five Sunday games following a Monday Night affair.
