10* NFL Thursday Game of the Year
Dallas vs. Minnesota,
12/01/2016 20:25 EDT,
Score: 17 - 15
Point Spread: -3/-115 Dallas
The Dallas Cowboys, coming off a solid Thanksgiving Day win over the Washington Redskins, and now go on the road to take on the Minnesota Vikings who are coming off a loss to the Detroit Lions after a late INT by Sam Bradford.
The Vikings are sitting at 6-5 on the season right now and have to be a little concerned about recent trends as they have dropped five of their last six overall. Sam Bradford seems to not be panning out in Minnesota just like he hasn’t at every stop in his career and is coming off an absolute stinker of a game against the Lions. Offensively, there is very little to like with the Vikes. Bradford can connect on short passes well, but thats about it.
The Dallas Cowboys are looking like one of the best teams in the league and with two rookies leading the way for the offense you have to look a little deeper to find out why this team is playing at such an elite level. The Cowboys defense has been excellent this season and very much under the radar as the offense really gets all the credit. They play great defense in the redzone and I expect them to blitz the hell out of Bradford.
The Dallas offense is excellent as their running game is churning out a league leading 157.3 and the passing game has continued to improve as Prescott gets more experience connecting with Witten, Beasley, and Dez.
Take the Cowboys to get the win and cover in this one as they are the better overall team and with the Vikings offense basically looking nonexistent this should be an easy win for Dallas here on Thursday night. The Cowboys are 9-1-1 ATS this year and I like them to get their 10th spread victory here on Thursday and get us the cash.
