Cowboys vs Patriots Week 6 Prop Bets Today

1. Tony Pollard Rushing Yards - Over 43.5 (-110)

Tony Pollard is thriving despite being the RB2 behind Ezekiel Elliott. Pollard has rushed for at least 60 yards in each of the past four games, averaging an insane 6.48 yards per attempt. The league leader in rushing yards per attempt is a big play waiting to happen whenever he touches the ball, and he could get plenty of work in a game where the Cowboys are expected to lead as 3.5-point favorites. New England also ranks just outside the bottom 10 in Football Outsiders' run defense DVOA metric, meaning Pollard and Elliott both have the chance to feast.

2. Mac Jones - Interception: Yes (-138)

The rookie in Mac Jones has shown itself over the past three weeks. Jones has thrown 5 interceptions in the last three games, even being forced into a mistake against the lackluster Houston Texans' secondary. Now he draws a matchup against a Cowboys defense that leads the league in INTs with 10. Rising star Trevon Diggs has 6 picks by himself this year, and he'll look to make Jones' day a nightmare. The Pats' underwhelming receiving options could have trouble getting open in this one, which increases the rook's chances of making a mistake.

3. Dalton Schultz - Receptions: Over 4.5 (+126)

Dalton Schultz's role within the Cowboys' offense has grown in recent weeks. He enters the contest coming off of three straight games with at least 6 receptions, averaging 7.7 targets in that span. The tight end has cultivated a clear connection with Dak Prescott, stepping up as the team's No. 3 target after wideout Michael Gallup went down in Week 1. New England boasts a strong secondary that will try to stop Dallas' star receivers in CeeDee Lamb and Amari Cooper, which could mean a busy day for Schultz as Prescott's safety valve.
