State bragging rights will be on the line this Sunday night with the Dallas Cowboys heading into NRG Stadium to square off against the Houston Texans. Game time on NBC is set for 8:20 p.m.
The Cowboys walked away with a last-second 26-24 victory at home against Detroit last Sunday as 2.5-point favorites on BetAnySports’ closing line. They moved to an even 2-2 straight-up with 1-3 record against the spread. They have already lost two previous road games to Carolina and Seattle (SU and ATS) with the total staying UNDER in each setback. It has stayed UNDER the closing line in three of Dallas’s first four games overall.
Behind Dak Prescott’s 255 yards passing and two touchdown passes, the Cowboys played their best game of the year on offense against Detroit. Ezekiel Elliott was a big part of that success as well with 152 yards rushing on 25 carries and 88 yards and one touchdown on four receptions. Dallas also stepped up its game on defense by holding the Lions to less than 300 yards of total offense.
Houston needed some late-game heroics toward the end of overtime to get past Indianapolis 37-34 in Week 4 as a one-point road favorite. This was the Texans’ first victory of the season both SU and ATS. The total went OVER BetAnySports’ closing 48.5-point line after also going OVER a 44.5-point line in a 27-22 loss to the New York Giants as six-point favorites in Houston’s only other home game.
The Texans are another team that has struggled with consistency on the offensive side of the ball through their first four games. However, Deshaun Watson is also coming is best effort of the year against Indianapolis with 375 yards passing and two scoring strikes while completing 29 of his 42 attempts. DeAndre Hopkins caught 10 of the 12 balls thrown his way for 169 yards and a score. The Texans added another 119 yards running the ball on 35 rushing attempts.
This is a very important game for each team coming off a big win. I see each of these offenses continuing to play well in a game that goes OVER BetAnySports’ 45-point total line.
