NFL Odds Week 2: Can The Cowboys Cover The Spread In San Francisco?

Coming off a collapse in Week 1, the Dallas Cowboys line is seeing all kinds of betting action. But should buyers beware? Here's a look at all of the lines and odds for Week 2 of the NFL season. All content courtesy of SB Nation's odds partners at OddsShark.com.

Lost in all the hubbub over Tony Romo’s little meltdown against the Jets last Sunday was the fact the Cowboys controlled a tough New York for three quarters. And lost in all the hubbub of San Francisco’s ‘big’ 33-17 win against Seattle and those two touchdown returns by Ted Ginn was the fact that the score was 19-17 late in the game.

So when Week 2 rolled around and Dallas opened as just 3-point underdogs, many scrambled to get their action down. [ And many will scramble to get their picks down in the new OddsShark football contest which starts off this weekend - $4,000 in prizes, free to play, pick winners, build the biggest bankroll. ]

“I’m in a survivor pool and have Dallas this week and I might have made a tiny wager of them as well at -3,” says Mike Pickett, NFL analyst at SB Nation’s odds partner OddsShark.com. “All the momentum and recent form points to a Dallas rout here.”

True the Cowboys will be hungry to rebound from a troubling loss and hungry to win in their second straight road game. True the Seahawks may be complacent after their division win and maybe not quite as hungry against a non-division foe in their second straight home game.

But there are plenty of historical trends pointing to a Cowboy cover and an OVER play.
- The Cowboys are 7-1 ATS past 8 September road games
- Past 5 meetings since 2000 all played OVER total
- The Cowboys 5-0 ATS past 5 games as underdog
- The Cowboys 7-1 to the OVER past 8 a favorite
- The 49ers are 4-16 SU past 20 games as underdog

There are plenty of one-sided trends in Week 2 (Eagles 10-1-1 ATS past 12 vs Atlanta, Miami has never beaten Houston, the Jaguars are 6-0 ATS past 7 vs Jets and the Panthers are 0-10 SU, 1-9 ATS past 10 games as an underdog) but this game has the attention of bettors and voters at OddsShark.com, where 71% were on the Cowboys earlier Friday.
