DOG COWBOYS SHOULD RIDE COLTS ON SATURDAY

The Dallas Cowboys have reeled off 5 consecutive wins and have a Saturday showdown in Indianapolis, facing a Colts team fresh off a nice 24 - 21 win in Houston versus the previously unbeaten in 9 consecutive games Texans. The home town Colts are currently point spread (-3) and money line (-162) favorites.

Why do I like the Cowboys?

  • The Colts have been averaging approximately 58k in attendance, and if there is an increase for this game it will be due to the die hard travelling Cowboys fan base showing up. Dallas has played in front of road crowd attendance of 70+ thousand on average, and after losing the first 4 road games, have won the most recent two in Philadelphia and in Atlanta. Dallas will have their backers in the audience for this game, and should give them an extra confidence boost, in contrast to the menial crowds showing up to see the Colts. If Dak is able to bark out the play calls with lesser crowd noise level interference, then this should bode will for the Cowboy offense.
  • Since 2016, the Cowboys boast a 19 - 9 record straight up after a win, while the Colts are 5 - 11 over the same period (bear in mind Andrew Luck was not there), but I am not going to go against what may be considered a Dallas strength with a team that has not changed as dramatically (less WR Bryant), but some excellent additions via the draft + Amari Cooper, as the Colts.
  • The only time the Colts hosted the Cowboys, and were favored, in December, was December 5, 2010, and Dallas was effective enough to pull off the upset 38 - 35. Furthermore, the Cowboys have won the most recent 3 consecutive meetings in 2006, 2010, and 2014.
  • Dallas has a more balanced offensive attack IMO, better ground game, lesser air power, but more effective since aquiring Amari Cooper to keep opponents defenses off kilter. Taking that into consideration, and including a Dallas defense that is now coming into its own, if able to stuff the run, make Luck one dimensional, may be able to cause more problems for the Colts, than the Indianapolis defense is able to cause the Cowboys


PREDICTION: Take the Dallas Cowboys ML (+142)

FINAL SCORE PREDICTION: Dallas Cowboys 30, Indianapolis Colts 24

Good luck everyone!

Post hidden due to low quality. Show it.

Dallas may find it difficult to get motivated for this game. They got sky high to play the Saints on national TV when the Saints were considered unbeatable at the time, then they got emotionally high again to play the Eagles in a game that decided the division winner. It's awfully hard to get that emotion 3 weeks in a row, especially in a non-conference game that's nearly meaningless.

In the last 7 weeks, Indy has been the best defense in the league. Dallas is missing an offensive linman, Zach Martin, so running the ball won't be easy. And pass blocking schemes may get confused without him.

Andrew Luck has been on fire lately. Seems to be back to what he was before his injury. The emotional let-down for Dallas will likely show itself on defense, which could allow Luck to have a big day.

Best of luck to everyone.

The enjoyment researching is what I get out of it. I am thinking the Chargers at its current -4 (-107) spread is a decent play. Have you looked into this game yet? I am thinking about completing a write up for this game. Great to have members like yourself that have a genuine interest, and love for sports wagering / handicapping :)

Tim,


I have and am nervous. I know how much that game means to the Ravens too. Looking for other games.


I really like a couple other ones but since selling picks via PM I don't post them openly.


I will try to watch that game and read your write up too if you do one.

Timothy, you're right about the Chargers over the Ravens. Lamar Jackson is trash, another running QB that the media falls in love with. See Vince Young, Robert Griffen III, Johnny Manzel, Tim Tebow, etc. It's a long list of QB's that can't throw. All make a splash against bad teams using their legs, but all end up failing because they can't throw.

Baltimore's last 4 games: 1) Tampa Bay, the 30th worst defense giving up 28 ppg. Jackson was 14/23 for 131 yards. 2) Kansas City, the 31st worst defense giving up 409 ypg. Jackson was 13/24 for 147. 3) Atlanta, the 29th worst defense giving up 27 ppg. Jackson was 12/21 for 125. 4) Oakland, the 32nd and worst defense in the NFL giving up 30 ppg. Jackson was 14/25 for 178.

So Baltimore has beaten the 4 worst defenses in the NFL. And Jackson couldn't pass for 200 yards against any of them. Now they play the Chargers, a top 10 defense in yards and points. It's going to be extremely difficult for Baltimore to move the ball. With the offense struggling to stay on the field, the Ravens defense will log a lot of minutes and snaps. Their defense is very good, but all that time on the field against Rivers and the Chargers will cause fatigue. And all the Chargers need is 17+ points to cover because it's doubtful the Ravens can score more than 13.

Best of luck.

If Google ever goes down, at least we'll have your plays, right? Isn't that what you said?

@BHS2020 My intent wasn't to offend you, it was just a humorous way of illustrating your post didn't convey any new information. It was just date, time, location, and records. All factual info known to virtually everyone.

I'd suggest stating your position (side you are betting) and give some analysis supporting your position. Not everyone will agree with your position, but still might learn something in your analysis. Maybe a player who isn't as good as he's perceived, or a defense that's over rated. Maybe something situational like a good team in a bad scheduling spot. These are things that could benefit anyone considering a bet on the game, regardless of which side they bet.

Best of luck to you.
