The Minnesota Vikings at Dallas Cowboys
Taking the OVER Vikings at Cowboys: Over/Under 47
It seemed like it was just a matter of time until the Dallas Cowboys’ offense got rolling like it did in the fourth quarter against the New York Giants on Monday Night Football. Dallas is forth in the league in rushing and is first in total yards per game at 447. They also are averaging an astounding 32 points per game at home and have 1200 yards on the ground, while averaging five yards a clip.
Meanwhile, the Minnesota Vikings are ninth in total offense and third in the league in rushing the ball. The Vikings are getting great production out of quarterback Kirk Cousins and running back Dalvin Cook, but seem to be a little off when they take their show on the road. At home their numbers are dominant, but they are only 2-3 on the road and have given up 56 points in their last two road games. Three weeks ago, Matt Stafford and the Detroit Lions lit them up for 371 yards and three passing touchdowns. Last week, Kansas City Chiefs running back Damien Williams got the Minnesota defense for a buck twenty five on the ground and one score.
Again, the Vikings are very talented on offense and will get points, but Dallas will probably fair a bit better with Michael Gallup back from injury and their running game with “Zeke” is really beginning to take off. I see the Vikings getting around 27 points, but with the Cowboys having scored more than 30 points in three of their four home games, I think something similar is going to happen in this one, making that game go OVER the Vikings/Cowboys Over/Under of 47.
