BIG AL's NFL 5-GAME CARD (3 SIDES, 2 TOTALS)!
Dallas Cowboys (2-6) vs Pittsburgh Steelers (7-0)
Sunday, November 08, 2020 at 4:25 pm
At 4:25 pm, our selection is on the Dallas Cowboys + the points over Pittsburgh. It's absolutely true that these two teams are going in an opposite direction. Dallas is 2-6 straight-up, and a horrid 0-8 ATS. Meanwhile, Pittsburgh has covered five straight games, and is the NFL's lone undefeated team, at 8-0. The Steelers have been installed as a double-digit road favorite. And, as I've often written, one of the last things an NFL bettor should do is take a double-digit road favorite. Certainly, if an NFL team is installed as a double-digit home underdog, then it's bad. Really bad. That being said, these horrible teams have been one of the most reliable bets over the last 41 years. They're 103-78-2 ATS their last 183, including a perfect 3-0 ATS already this season. The most recent double-digit home dog was the New York Giants, when it caught 13 points from Tampa Bay on a Monday Night game. The Giants took Tampa down to the wire, and lost by just two, 25-23. Previous to that was Philadelphia, which almost upset Baltimore as a 10.5-point home dog. And the other one was Washington, which covered as a 14.5-point home dog vs. the Ravens. The Steelers are 29-52 ATS as a non-division road favorite, including 0-8 ATS when laying more than 9. Take Dallas + the points.
