The Dallas Cowboys (6-6) travel to Ohio to take on the Cincinnati Bengals (7-5) Sunday at 1:00ET. NFL odds are located at Bovada sportsbook.
The Cowboys have lost three in a row against the spread, but have won three of their last four straight up, to bring their season totals to 6-6 SU and 4-8 ATS. Last week’s ATS loss to the Eagles was a bit misleading, since it took a punt return with basically no time left to give the Birds the back door cover. Dallas is trying to keep pace in an NFC East that keeps getting tighter.
The Bengals have won four in a row straight up and against the number. For the season, they are 7-5 SU and 6-5-1 ATS, and drawn even with the Steelers for one of the two AFC wild card spots. While the Bengals have been on a hot streak, their only quality win was that against the Giants a month ago. Before that, they had lost four in a row, against the Broncos, Steelers, Browns, and Dolphins.
The Bengals are a 3 ½ point favorite. This game figures to be tight, so take the Cowboys and the points at best sports books.
