Dallas 20, Buffalo 16
The Cowboys (-304) are a prohibitive favorite despite their recent struggles. Buffalo (+240) is getting a nice return on investment, so, if you are to bet this at all a small bet on Buffalo and looking for an upset in what looks to be a tight, defense-dominated game would be the call, even though we'll avoid it because we think Dallas will win and 1:3 return is just too low.
Against the Spread (?)
For a team who hasn't beaten a team with a winning record, Dallas is still the betting favorite laying 6½ points (-121), while Buffalo is even money getting 6½. The Cowboys have the weapons to blow the game out, but Josh Allen can make enough plays to get Buffalo in scoring position often enough to keep the game close. Take Buffalo plus the 6½ points.
The total is 44½ points (-110 on both the over and under) and Dallas has a history of hitting the over at home this year. While Buffalo hasn't faced a very tough schedule, it does have a history of playing the good teams tight. 44½ is about right for the kind of game we're expecting, so the under in a Zeke Elliott dominated game plan is the bet to make as both teams struggle to find the end zone with regularity.
