Lions vs Cowboys Week 7 Game Info

2022 NFL Regular Season — Week 7
Detroit Lions (1-4, 0-2 Away) vs. Dallas Cowboys (4-2, 2-1 Home)
Date: Sunday, October 23, 2022
Time: 1:00 p.m. ET
Venue: AT&T Stadium — Arlington, TX
Coverage: CBS

The Detroit Lions will look to come out their bye week firing when they travel to take on the Dallas Cowboys in Week 7 NFL action. Head coach Dan Campbell's team was shut out by the New England Patriots by a score of 29-0 in its most recent game. Red zone struggles killed any chance Detroit had.

Meanwhile, the Cowboys came close to mounting a massive comeback, but fell short in a 26-17 final score against the Philadelphia Eagles in Week 6. Quarterback Cooper Rush threw 3 interceptions. His first bad game leaves fans wondering if Dak Prescott will be able to return from a thumb injury soon.

Moneyline: DET: (+245) | DAL: (-300)

Total: 49.5 — Over: (-110) | Under: (-110)

Updated (Sunday, Oct. 23, 12:00 p.m. EST): Some money has come in on the Lions, who see their moneyline odds improve from +265 to +245. The spread holds steady at 7 points, and the over/under is up to 49.5 points.

The Cowboys enter this contest as a clear home favorite on the moneyline and the spread. This 1:00 p.m. ET clash also features one of the higher totals on the Week 7 slate at 48.5 points.

Lions vs Cowboys Prediction & Pick

The Cowboys will be looking to bounce back in front of their home crowd on Sunday, but it's vital to not underestimate the Lions in this spot. Campbell has had two weeks to prepare for this game and could easily have some tricks up his sleeve. Detroit has nothing to lose with its 1-4 record right now.

The Lions average 6.2 yards per play (T-No. 2 in NFL) and 411.8 yards per game (No. 2 in NFL) this season. If they can take a page out of Philadelphia's playbook on how to stop Micah Parsons, they have a shot to pull off an upset here. I believe they fall just short thanks to a Brett Maher field goal.

Final Score Prediction: Lions: 24 | Cowboys: 27

Lions vs Cowboys Betting Trends

- Detroit is 0-6 straight up in its last six away games.

Lions vs Cowboys Best Bet

All NFL betting lines, odds and prop bets are available on FanDuel Sportsbook.

Reports suggest Prescott is doing everything he can to suit up on Sunday, which should excite fans about Dallas' offense. The Cowboys finished the 2021 season as the NFL's highest-scoring team (30.4 points per game) and should find success against a Lions' defense that has yet to stop anyone.

The over has hit in six of Detroit's last seven games as well as in eight of Detroit's last nine matchups against Dallas. The chance of running back D'Andre Swift being back for this game means that both offenses could be working at full health. AT&T stadium is going to be full of offensive fireworks.

Bet: Over 48.5 Points (-105)
