Cowboys vs Vikings Prediction & Pick

Dallas enters this game deflated after losing a game in which it held a 14-point lead in the fourth quarter for the first time in franchise history. On the other side, Minnesota returns home elated after mounting a second-half comeback. However, the oddsmakers have this game listed as a toss up.

That goes to show that the Cowboys should not be underestimated here. This is a team that has posted the second-best total DVOA rating in the NFL and has logged a league-high 35.0 sacks. Keep in mind quarterback Kirk Cousins also owns a 2-8 record against Dallas during his 11-year career.

Final Score Prediction: Cowboys: 27 | Vikings: 23

Cowboys vs Vikings Best Bet

The Vikings' success on offense has been overshadowing their struggles on defense. Minnesota is allowing a whopping 5.9 yards per play (T-No. 28 in NFL) and a red zone scoring percentage of 72.0% (No. 31 in NFL). This lines up as the perfect opportunity for the Dallas offense to get back on track.

The Cowboys are 4-1 straight up in their last five games against Minnesota and 6-2 against the spread (ATS) in their last eight games overall. The Vikings are only 1-4-1 ATS in their last six games against an NFC East opponent, though. An exciting win streak finally comes to an end in Week 11.
