Cowboys vs Seahawks NFL Week 3 Odds & Analysis

Written by on September 21, 2018

The addition of a salary cap in football made it tough for teams to say at the top for an extended period of time, with the New England Patriots perhaps being the exception in the modern game. Every team goes through a down period at some point as they try to rebuild from the ground up. The Dallas Cowboys looked as though they were about to break out after a great season in 2016, but a poor year last season meant that they came into the current season with some real pressure on their shoulders. It has been an up and down start to the season through the opening two weeks, but they are in better shape than their rivals this weekend, the Seattle Seahawks. The Seahawks have been one of the best in the NFC over the past few years, but it looks as though they are about to take a step back this year after a very slow start. The Seahawks are in as a 1-point home favorite, with the point total set at 42.

Why bet on the Dallas Cowboys?

It was the addition of Dak Prescott and Ezekiel Elliott a couple of years ago that gave the Cowboys reason for hope, but the offense has been misfiring since that solid 2016 season. This year, Dallas has opened the season with a 1-1 record, but they are generating just 265 yards per game in offense, which is not going to get the job done. The end result of that poor output is that Dallas has only managed to score 28 points in the first two weeks of the season. Things could have been a whole lot worse were they not able to pick up a win against a New York Giants offense that is totally awful. The good news for the Cowboys is that they have won 6 of their last 8 road games. They have also gone 7-3 ATS in their last 10 visits to Seattle, so they may not be a bad bet here.

Why bet on the Seattle Seahawks?

The Seahawks are in desperate need of a win after starting the season 0-2. They will certainly feel as though they have a shot here, as they will be back home after playing both of their opening games on the road. While perhaps not the fortress that it once was, CenturyLink Field is still a happy hunting ground for the Seahawks, as they have won 15 of their last 21 games at home. Cowboys vs Seahawks is scheduled for Sunday afternoon. They have won 4 of their last 6 meetings with Dallas when playing in Seattle, although they are just 1-4 ATS in their last 5 games against the Cowboys. The UNDER looks like a potentially good bet here given that both teams have struggled to find the end zone in the early going. 4 of the last 6 meetings between these two in Seattle have gone UNDER.
