It is closing in on a quarter of a century. By reason of Dallas not winning the Super Bowl since the 1995 season has frustration mounted. Public betting has remained strong on the Cowboys despite the drought. After all, there is a reason why Dallas is labeled as “America’s Team.” This year is no exception. Dallas is a solid betting on NFL choice to win the Super Bowl. Dallas had a decent run last year. Consider their 24-22 wild card win over Seattle. But that was followed with a 30-22 loss at the Los Angeles Rams in the divisional playoffs.
2019 Dallas Cowboys Futures Betting and Preview
Dallas Cowboys 2018 Season Review
Last season the Cowboys finished with betting on NFL record of 10-6 straight up and 9-7 against the spread. Dallas ranked a disappointing 22nd overall for total offense and scoring. Defense proved to be the strength of the Cowboys. As an example, Dallas ranked seventh in the NFL for overall defense and sixth for points allowed. The Cowboys did win a relatively weak NFC East. Cause by the playoff flop at Los Angeles did the season not totally fulfill.
The Common Denominator
Above all, there has been one constant with Dallas since their last Super Bowl title. That would be the owner and general manager, Jerry Jones. At the onset of his ownership, Jones partnered exceptionally well with then-head coach Jimmy Johnson. Indeed, Dallas were Super Bowl champions in 1992 and 1993. But the egos of owner and coach grew out of control. Despite all of their online betting success, Johnson walked out on a shot for an unprecedented third straight Super Bowl title shot. Barry Switzer coached Dallas to one more title with Johnson’s players. Dallas has since never seriously threatened.
Namely, Jason Garrett has been Cowboys head coach since 2010. He is the seventh head coach since Johnson’s departure. In the beginning, he was celebrated as an offensive mastermind. Like all of Jones’ coaches, Garrett has been suffocated by the shadow of the omnipresent owner. Playoff berths in three of the last five years have improved Garrett’s betting on NFL reputation. But like the rest of his predecessors, there is only so much he can do.
Prescott and Company
On the whole quarterback, Dak Prescott has been an asset for the Cowboys. Last season Prescott (3885 YP, 67.7 COMP%, 22 TD, 8 INT, 96.9 RTG) carried an otherwise lethargic offense. WR Amari Cooper (75 REC, 1005 YDS, 7 TD, 13.4 YPC) remains a top target. Another asset is WR Michael Gallup (33 rec, 507 yds, 2 TD). Further help comes from RB Ezekiel Elliott (1434 YDS, 4.7 YPC, 6 TD, 77 REC, 567 YDS, 3 TD).
Dallas Cowboys against the Spread
The Cowboys are:
- 6-9-1 against the spread as a home favorite
- 4-6 vs. the line as a road dog
- 5-1-1 against the spread laying points on the road
Dallas Cowboys Betting on NFL Picks
In this situation, the Cowboys are atop NFC East contender. Defense remains an asset. More offense must be generated. In turn, Dallas is a decent team but not at all a Super Bowl contender.
