Head-To-Head Betting TrendsThe Cowboys defense is ranked 21st in total and defense and 21st against the pass; yet, they haven’t faced a good quarterback all season long. They have lost to the 49ers Colin Kaepernick and beating the Titans Jake Locker and the Rams Austin Davis. Coming up this weekend is QB Drew Brees who has the fifth-most passing yards over three weeks.

They have been saved this year thanks to their rushing attack that is averaging 140.3 yards per game. If things weren’t bad enough for Dallas, QB Drew Brees has dominated the Cowboys over his career posting a 4-2 record in six meetings with 16 TDs and 4 INT and a 106.7 passer rating in those games. His counterpart, QB Tony Romo is 1-3 against the Saints with 7 TDs and 2 INTs in those four matchups, with a 93.7 passer rating which is surprising since he has a 12-4 against other NFC South teams leaving the Saints as the only NFC South team against which he as a losing record. With Romo slow to start this season, the Cowboys have depended on thier run game which currently ranks 3rd in the NFL with 156.7 yards per game average this year. DeMarco Murray became the first running back to run for consecutive 100 yards and a touchdown for the Cowboys in the first three games of the year since 2000 during the Troy Aikman and Emmitt Smith era. The Saints D is ranked 10th against the run.
Against The Spread Betting TrendsWhen New Orleans teams with winning records, they are a very good bet with 23-11 ATS vs. a team with a winning record, and 0-4 ATS in their last 14 games as a road favorite of 0.5-3.0 points, but they are also 2-8 ATS in their last 10 road games overall and 2-6 ATS in their last 8 games following a SU win.
