A pair of NFC contenders will be squaring off in a Thursday night game with the NFL betting lines favoring the host Dallas Cowboys against the Seattle Seahawks.
This is the first meeting between these NFL teams since 2020 and the first regular-season matchup in Arlington since 2017.
The line has moved from 7½ to 9½ in the last 24 hours and our sportsbook could push the line to double digits by the time of the opening kickoff.
Dallas has won three games in a row and, when looking at the NFC standings, the Cowboys are two games behind Philadelphia in the NFC East Division race. Seattle has lost two games in a row and is trailing San Francisco by two games in the NFC West.
Offensive lineman Abraham Lucas, running back Kenneth Walker and receiver Dareke Young are all questionable for Seattle.
Tight end Peyton Hendershot and safety Jayron Kearse are questionable for Dallas.
Dallas came in the season with the third-best odds to represent the NFC in the Super Bowl. Seattle comes in tied for fifth in the NFC championship odds.
Road Woes Plague Seahawks
Seattle has dropped its last three road games and has just two touchdowns over those contests and that could factor into the Seahawks vs Cowboys NFL odds.
The Seahawks are 21st in the NFL in total offense, 17th in passing offense and 26th in rushing this season.
The recent injury to Kenneth Walker hasn’t helped with the running game and injuries to the offensive line have made things more difficult. Walker, who has missed the last two games, has 613 rushing yards and is averaging just 4.1 yards per carry this NFL season after rushing for 1,050 yards in 15 games as a rookie. He did not practice on Monday.
Seattle ranks near the bottom of the league in rushing attempts. After a breakthrough season by quarterback Geno Smith, he hasn’t been doing enough to carry the offense.
Seattle is 6-13-1 against the NFL betting lines in its last 20 games.
Cowboys Great Bet at Home
Dallas is one of three teams in the NFL still undefeated at home. The Cowboys have outscored their opponents 205-60 at home. Keep that in mind when looking at the NFL picks this week.
Quarterback Dak Prescott has completed 78% of his passes as he has thrown for 1,555 yards with 15 touchdown passes and two interceptions.

Leading receiver CeeDee Lamb has 44 catches for 541 yards and five touchdowns in the home wins against the New York Jets, New England Patriots, the Los Angeles Rams, the New York Giants and Washington Commanders.
Dallas has covered against the Las Vegas odds in five of its last six games.
Seahawks vs Cowboys Head-to-Head
DK Metcalf had 110 yards and a touchdown in a 38-31 home victory in 2020. A Dak Prescott touchdown pass and a field goal helped Dallas erase a 15-point deficit.
A 29-yard TD catch by Metcalf with 1:47 gave Seattle the lead. The Seahawks covered as 5½ -point favorites by the NFL point spreads as a Prescott pass was intercepted in the end zone with 14 seconds left to play.
The game went over the 57-point total on a touchdown pass from Prescott to Michael Gallup.
