Team Outlook and Scouting Report

SEASON FORECASTS AND FUTURES PICKS

They face 3 of the Final 4 teams from last season, two on the road (@NO, @NE, LAR). This makes their schedule mcuh tougher. There are 3 teams who have 18/1, 5.3% odds to win the Super Bowl. Our projection recommends not betting on them to win it all. Their 1.8% chance is #13 in the league. In simulations, they win the NFC 4.7% of the time and are not a good value at 8/1, 11.1%. The Cowboys are averaging 8.4 wins per sim so we recommend betting them to come under 9 wins. At +105 the Cowboys are not a good value to make the playoffs with a 41.1% chance. Their odds of winning their division are 8/5, 38.5%. They win the division in 26.1% of simulations. Their average wins per simulation puts them at #8 in the NFC.

REGULAR SEASON RECAP AND UPCOMING GAMES

Their 10-6 record last season was way ahead of what was expected of them. Their game-by-game odds gave them a projected record of 7.6-8.4. They were very good against the spread going 9-6-1 for (+240 profit). More of their games came in under (9) than went over (7). They are heavy favorites in their upcoming game vs the New York Giants. The table below shows their upcoming games, their simulation based win percentage and their recent head to head record (WL, ATS, OU).

TEAM OFFENSIVE AND DEFENSIVE STATS WITH LEAGUE RANKINGS

They are a below average scoring team based on points per game and a below average offensive TD per play rate. They are an elite scoring defense, which make sense given their strong yards per play allowed rank.
