2017 NFL Win/Loss Prediction & Free Picks For Dallas Cowboys
The Dallas Cowboys may have stunned the NFL a year ago by posting a glistening 13-3 record, thanks mostly to the contributions of rookie quarterback Dak Prescott and rookie running back Ezekiel Elliott, but they certainly won’t sneak up on anyone in 2017.
With one of the toughest schedules in all of football this coming season, the questions begs to be asked. Can the Boys duplicate their success from a year ago?
If you’re looking to find out whether Dallas will top their season-long win total odds in 2017, then consider your ticket punched because I’ve got some expert analysis and predictions on each and every game on the Cowboys’ upcoming schedule. Let’s get to it.
Analyzing The 2017 NFL Win/Loss Prediction & Free Picks For Dallas Cowboys
Dallas Cowboys Win Total Odds 9.5
Giants at Cowboys (-5)
The Dallas Cowboys will be looking for revenge against the G-Men after getting swept by New York last season and I believe they’ll get it as part of a regular season split with the Giants.
Cowboys at Broncos (PK)
The Broncos needs to improve their offense, but they still have an elite defense that I expect to harass Dak Prescott just enough to make a home win stand up.
Cowboys (-2) at Cardinals
Dallas loses its second straight game by falling to Carson Palmer and the Cardinals in the desert, although it should be a bunch of fun watching Ezekiel Elliott and Arizona’s David Johnson display their special gifts at the running back position.
Rams at Cowboys (-12.5)
If the Rams aren’t kicking themselves for drafting Jared Goff over Dak Prescott, they will be after this Week 4 affair.
Packers at Cowboys (-3)
The Cowboys will be playing at home in this Week 5 showdown, but the Green Bay Packers are the only team with a future Hall of Fame quarterback under center. Aaron Rodgers leads Green Bay to the road upset at Jerry’s World.
Cowboys (-8.5) at 49ers
Dallas could literally bench Prescott and Elliott and they’d still win this Week 7 mismatch against the rebuilding Niners.
Cowboys (-2.5) at Redskins
Dallas will be better than Washington in 2017, but they’re still going down on the road in this Week 8 matchup against their longtime NFC East divisional rivals.
Chiefs at Cowboys (-6.5)
The Cowboys will suffer another home loss in this week 9 showdown against Andy Reid’s Kansas City Chiefs, mostly because K.C. has an elite defense with four near Pro Bowlers.
Cowboys at Falcons (-1)
Dallas will put up a fantastic effort against the defending conference champs, but Atlanta will get the win at home in a high-scoring shootout.
Eagles at Cowboys (-7)
Dallas has pretty much owned Philadelphia in recent season and that trend will continue as the Cowboys win at home in this Week 11 NFC East clash.
Chargers at Cowboys (-10)
After suffering three straight losses, Dallas Cowboys will be completely and utterly desperate for a victory in Week 12 against the Chargers. No worries however, they’ll beat a Bolts team that is in the midst of another rebuilding plan and playing for a first-time head coach.
Redskins at Cowboys (-7)
Revenge will be the name of this game as Dallas extracts some to make up for their Week 8 loss in the nation’s capitol.
Cowboys (-1) at Giants
This is another ‘revenge’ matchup, but unfortunately, Dallas will be on the wrong end of this one.
Cowboys at Raiders (PK)
I believe this Week 15 Inter-conference clash will be one of the best games on the entire 2017 docket. Unfortunately for the Cowboys, I like Derek Carr and company to get the home win in a flat-out thriller.
Seahawks at Cowboys (-3)
The Cowboys’ woes won’t stop as they fall at home to a more mature and experienced Seattle Seahawks team whose defense will be the difference in this Week 16 showdown.
Cowboys at Eagles
The Cowboys will likely be desperate to get the win in their regular season finale, but I like Carson Wentz and the Eagles to extract a small measure of revenge for their Week 11 loss in Dallas.
While I’ve got the Cowboys winning six games here in 2017, I’ll admit that the more likely scenario is that they win eight games, with nine being more of a longshot because of their insanely difficult schedule. Either way, I say play the Under for the Boys against their 9.5-game win total odds.
