The Dallas Cowboys are early road favorite against the Seattle Seahawks in this Week 2 NFL matchup. In six of its last seven games, Dallas has failed to go over the points spread.

After a strong road performance in Week 1 against the defending Super Bowl Champions, the Dallas Cowboys are a slight road favorite against the Seattle Seahawks in Week 2.

According to the latest odds from OddsShark.com, Dallas is a 3-point favorite over Seattle with an over/under of 41.5.

The Seahawks' offense struggled in a 20-16 loss to the Arizona Cardinals in Week 1, as rookie quarterback Russell Wilson completed 18 of 34 passes for 153 yards, 1 touchdown and 1 interception.

It won't get any easier against a Cowboys defense that had Eli Manning under duress all night in their 24-17 victory over the New York Giants, with All-Pro linebacker DeMarcus Ware, who had 19.5 sacks in 2011, picking up two more last Wednesday.

Working in Seattle's favor is the home crowd at Qwest Field, one of the toughest stadiums in the NFL to visit. It's also the site of one of Tony Romo's greatest failures: his bobbled snap on a field goal in the final moments of a playoff loss in 2007.
