Nov. 29th NFL!!!! Cowboys +275
So Thursday night football is here and what a game tonight. The New Orleans Saints head into Arlington boasting a 10-1 record and looking like they might be punching a one way ticket to Minneapolis. Drew Brees and company are lighting up the scoreboard week in and week out and lead the NFL in points averaging 37.2 points per game and scoring at least 30 pts or more in 5 straight games. But hold it right there... Dallas has something to say about that. The Cowboys D is only allowing 19.4 points per game and have not allowed more than 28 in any game this season. So let me break it down for you... Byron Jones is a top 3 corner this season and will be all over Michael Thomas. Can you even name a second reciever on this Saints team?? Alvin Kamara is a legit threat out of the backfield, but Jaylen Smith and LVE will make it awfully tough for Kamara to light it up like he usually does. Add in the mix Tank Lawrence chasing down Brees every down and you can see where this Saints offense might not have such a walk in the park as everyone thinks. Dallas is also sporting the leading rusher in the NFL in Zeke Elliott who has had at least 120 yds on the ground in the last 3 games all which the Cowboys have won. And if the Saints wish to stack the box and try to stop the run then Amari Cooper might just bust one 90 yards to the house. I actually feel that New Orleans secondary will try and check Amari Cooper but that will leave Dak Prescott to attack Eli Apple and probably result in Cole Beasley and Michael Gallup having good games. Let's face it, the Saints are legit and a formidable team, but after 10 wins in a row you have to figure they are due a loss and no better place than in the "House that Jerry built" against a hungry Dallas team on a 3 game win streak and in charge of the NFC East. I am not just being a homer when I tell you I believe the Cowboys will not only cover the 7.5 pts but win this game outright. This defense is the real deal and Dak and the offense are playing the best they have played all year. Take a chance and sit back and watch the money pile up tonight. Good luck Kiddos and How Bout them Cowboys?!!!!!!
