Seahawks vs Cowboys Prediction, Odds & Betting Trends for NFL Preseason Game on FanDuel Sportsbook (Aug 26)
Seahawks vs Cowboys Preseason Game Info
Week 3 of the NFL preseason includes a showdown between the Seattle Seahawks and Dallas Cowboys. The Seahawks haven't had much luck this preseason, dropping back-to-back exhibition games. Their most recent loss was devoid of offense as they fell to the Chicago Bears, 27-11, last Thursday.
Meanwhile, the Cowboys did something quite rare last week: win a preseason game. Dallas has been dreadful in the preseason over recent years, which is why fans are pumped following the Cowboys' 32-18 win over the Los Angeles Chargers in Week 2.

Moneyline: SEA: (-155) | DAL: (+130)
Spread: SEA: -3 (-110) | DAL: +3 (-110)
Total: 40 — Over: (-105) | Under: (-115)
The Seahawks enter this contest as the favorite on the moneyline and the spread. This 8 p.m. ET clash also features a total of 40, which is higher than most of this week's NFL projected totals.
Seahawks vs Cowboys Prediction & Pick
If this was a regular-season meeting, the Cowboys would be the easy pick here. Having said that, there's nothing for most of Mike McCarthy's players to prove this week and it wouldn't be surprising if the Dallas coach went with more second- and third-string players against the Seahawks.
Meanwhile, the Seahawks still have to decide if Geno Smith or Drew Lock will be their starting quarterback going forward. Both men will have a great opportunity to prove their worth against a weaker-than-usual Cowboys defense, so time will tell who makes the most of their chances.
At the end of the day, more Seahawks are fighting for their jobs than Cowboys and the competitive nature of those battles should yield a win for Seattle.
Final Score Prediction: Seahawks: 21 | Cowboys: 14

Seahawks vs Cowboys Best Bet
All NFL preseason betting lines, odds and prop bets are available on FanDuel Sportsbook.
Hitting the under has been a consistent trend as far as the Seahawks and Cowboys are concerned — especially when they play against each other. With Dallas likely giving its top playmakers some time off and Seattle's offense being far from the best in the NFL on a good day, I like the odds of the total finishing below 40 points.
Bet: Under 40 Points (-110)
