Against the Spread (Devlin Duckett)
Who would have thought that the Dallas Cowboys would be 2-7 heading into Week 11? The Cowboys have been decimated by injuries, and their defense is the absolute worst in the league. Dallas allows 32.2 PPG, and their rushing D gives up an average of 157 yards per contest. It’s no surprise that the Cowboys are 1-8 ATS in 2020, playing without QB Dak Prescott while fielding that putrid defense. The Minnesota Vikings (4-5) have won three consecutive games, and are favored by seven points here. Minnesota RB Dalvin Cook leads the NFL in rushing, and the Vikings have averaged 182.3 YPG on the ground over the last three weeks. Cook must be salivating at the prospect of this juicy matchup. Minnesota is very much alive in the playoff hunt, and is 6-1 ATS over its previous seven contests. The Vikings win and cover. Vikings 45, Cowboys 17
Over/Under (Zack Robinson)
The Dallas Cowboys come from their much-needed bye week, and Andy Dalton should be back under center, but that’s no guarantee. Ezekiel Elliott needs to become the leader the Cowboys expect from him and the defense needs to be better (allows 32.2 points per game).
The Cowboys average 22.7 points per game and the total has gone under in four of their last five games.
Kirk Cousins and the Minnesota Vikings returned to the playoffs conversation after beating the Chicago Bears in Week 10. Minnesota won the last three games in a row with a great Dalvin Cook. Also, Adam Thielen and Justin Jefferson have become a very dangerous duo and the defense has been playing better.
The Vikings average 26.2 points per game and the total has gone over in their last five games at home. Go over as the Vikings will try to keep the good momentum going.
