Bet on the NFLThe battle of Texas will continue this at AT&T Stadium in Arlington as the Dallas Cowboys host the Houston Texans. This is only the third time that the two teams have ever met one another. The Cowboys have won two of those games including the last one back in 2010.
The Cowboys have won their last three straight games. They have won them both straight up and against the spread. The last game for the Cowboys was a 38-17 victory against New Orleans. The Cowboys were at +3 for that game. The Cowboys have also won each of their last four ATS matches in the month of October.
Defensive tackle Terrell McClain is question for the game. He did not play for the Cowboys last week due to a concussion.
The Houston Texans have already surpassed their win total from last year. Their third win of the season came last week in a 23-17 win over the Buffalo Bills. The Texans were favored at -3 in that game. The Texans have covered the spread in each of the three games that they have won this year. However, the Texans have lost their last eight games ATS on artificial turf surfaces like what the Cowboys use in Arlington.
The only significant injury for the Texans comes from linebacker Jadeveon Clowney. He is still out with a knee injury and is not expected to return until later this month at the earliest. There are no other significant injuries that have come around for the Texans in recent time.
The Dallas Cowboys are -6 favorites in this game. The Cowboys have a -110 line to win against the spread. The over/under is currently posted at 46.5. Also, the Texans are listed at +220 for a straight up win. The Cowboys have a -260 line for a straight up victory. While the in-state rivalry is not all that big, this is expected to be a very close game based on the spread at this moment.
