Where: Ford Field, Detroit
When: Sunday, November 17, 2019, 1:00 PM ET
TV Broadcast: NBC
Betting on the Dallas Cowboys (5-4)
The Cowboys bowed down to the Minnesota Vikings at home last Sunday, 28-24. Dak Prescott passed for 397 yards and three touchdowns with an interception on 28-of-46 completions, but did not get much support from Ezekiel Elliott and the rest of the backfield, as the Cowboys only had 50 rushing yards on 22 carries. However, Dallas should fare better on the ground next time around, as the Lions have one of the leakiest run defenses in the NFL this season. The Lions are only 26th in the league against the run with 129.7 rushing yards allowed per game, while the Cowboys are fifth with 138.2 rushing yards per game. Amari Cooper can also continue making a killing downfield after torching Minnesota’s secondary for 147 receiving yards and a touchdown on 11 carries. The Lions are just 28th against the pass with 272.4 passing yards allowed per game.
The Cowboys are 2-1 against the spread (ATS) in their last three games overall. The under is 2-0 in those games, too.
Betting on the Detroit Lions (3-5-1)
The Lions suffered their second loss in a row, falling prey to the Chicago Bears on the road last Sunday, 20-13. The Lions were obviously the underdog in that game, with Matthew Stafford out due to a back injury. In lieu of Stafford, the Lions relied on Jeff Driskel, who, as expected, didn’t look good after getting thrown into the pit of lions AKA Chicago’s defense. Driskel went 27 for 46 for 269 passing yards and a touchdown with an interception. Stafford is likely out again for the Dallas game, as he’s reportedly a week-to-week case. With Driskel a shaky play under center, the Lions will have to give him the best protection they can to help the former sixth-round pick see and utilize a still-talented receiving corps that features Kenny Golladay and Marvin Jones Jr.
The Lions are 5-5 ATS in their last 10 games. The over is 3-1 in their last four games overall.
The Cowboys win, 29-20.
