Cowboys vs Falcons Game Betting Preview

The Dallas Cowboys will really will be without Ezekiel Elliott. A court denied the star running back’s request for an injunction Thursday, thus forcing him to begin serving his six-game suspension when the Cowboys face the host Atlanta Falcons on Sunday. Will he be back later? I don’t know but he is out this week and that is all that matters.

Dallas Cowboys (5-3)

Dallas will lean heavily on quarterback Dak Prescott who is having a great year with 16 touchdown passes and just four interceptions. Running back Alfred Morris likely will get a chance to be the main ball carrier for the league’s No. 2 rushing offense but I am not looking for him to be a real force in the game. Dak will be a good bet to get several rushing attempts in designed roll outs to help keep moving the chains. On defense the Cowboys showed last week that the defense is completely different with Sean Lee playing linebacker.

Atlanta Falcons (4-4)

The Atlanta offense is nothing like last seasons offense so the best thing to do is just forget last year ever took place. Matt Ryan has thrown 11 touchdown passes and seven interceptions so far this season. Running backs Devonta Freeman and Tevin Coleman have not been a factor and totaled just 53 rushing yards in last week’s 20-17 loss at Carolina. Julio Jones has been hurt but that does not explain his fall from last year. The Falcons in some ways mirror the Raiders in that they had a year were everything went right on offense. On defense the Falcons can be run on and the play action is available to teams once the running game gets rolling. If the Falcons defense is on the field a lot in the first three quarters there will be plenty of play action passes available in the fourth quarter.

Cowboys vs Falcons Betting Prediction

If this was last year it would be a top game to watch with back and fourth scoring. This season? The Falcons offense is nothing like last years team and they will be held in check by the Cowboys defense. On the Dallas side they know that their defense will be able to control the Atlanta offense and will not need to press for a high scoring game to win. The Cowboys will control the clock with a short passing game and some clutch runs by Dak. The loss of Elliot will really show the most in the red zone as a couple of drives will end in field goals instead of touchdowns.

Cowboys vs Falcons Betting Pick: Under 49.5
Score Prediction:
Cowboys 24 – Falcons 20
