The Line: New York Jets +8.5 -- Over/Under: 44.5
The Dallas Cowboys and the New York Jets will meet up on the NFL circuit Sunday.
Dallas comes into this game at 3-2 so far. After opening up with wins 35-17 over the Giants, 31-21 over the Redskins and 31-6 over the Dolphins, the Cowboys have lost their last two to the Saints 12-10 and Packers 34-24.
In the Green Bay game, Dallas QB Dak Prescott posted 463 yards with one TD and three picks, while Ezekiel Elliott had 62 yards and a TD rushing. Amari Cooper went off for 226 yards and a TD on 11 catches.
Over on the Jets’ side, they’ve started out at 0-4 this season. New York has opened with losses 17-16 to the Bills, 23-3 to the Browns, 30-14 to the Patriots and 31-6 to the Eagles.
In the Philly loss, New York QB Luke Falk posted 120 yards with two INTs, and Le’Veon Bell rushed for 43 yards. Demaryius Thomas led the receivers on 47 yards from four catches.
The Cowboys are 6-0 ATS in their last six in Week 6 and 7-1 ATS in their last eight road games versus a team with a losing home record. Dallas is 4-1 ATS versus a team with a losing record and the over is 7-2 in their last nine in October.
Meanwhile, the Jets are 8-3-1 ATS in their last 12 in October and 2-6 ATS in their last eight after an ATS loss. New York is 1-5-1 ATS versus a team with a winning record and 0-6-1 ATS in their last seven home games.
Dallas was outscored by Green Bay 17-0 in the first half, and though they got things going a bit in the second, they couldn’t climb out of the hole they’d dug themselves. The good news here is that they’ll be facing the Jets, who are unquestionably the worst team in the NFL at this point.
New York may get a lift with the return of QB Sam Darnold this week (keep an eye on what they do with him in practice as well), but considering the Jets have only scored two offensive TDs all year I doubt things will get much better (and their O-line is a sieve). At anything less than two touchdowns or so here I’m taking the Cowboys.
