The Cowboys are not quite as predictable as they used to be. While they still are a team that relies on the run game and playing tough defence, they have been able to develop a pretty decent passing game in the second half of the season.

Ezekiel Elliot is one of the best in the business. Dak Prescott has appeared much more comfortable throwing the ball—and has the results to prove it. As for the defence—while far from perfect, they are capable of excellence.

If they can shut down the Saints, it is not hard to imagine them being competitive against the Rams.

The Rams will need to figure out a way to stop Elliot from gashing them with inside runs. If Prescott can connect with Amari Cooper and Michael Gallup early on, the Rams could be in trouble. Their best defence against the Cowboys could be a good offence—which the Rams have.

Recommended Odds

Spread: Rams by 7

With how they bulldozed through most of the competition during the regular season, the Rams are a good choice to win this game. But the Cowboys could exploit their weakness against the run and minimize Gurley’s contribution.

The Rams will not cover the spread.

Over/Under: 49

Dallas rarely scores a lot, and their defence should keep the Rams from scoring a lot. Take the under.

Money line: Cowboys +270; Rams -360

It will take a massive defensive effort by the Cowboys to control the Rams offensive juggernaut. But if they can play like they did against the Saints back in Week 13 and the Seahawks last week, they can pull off the upset.
