Dallas Cowboys bettors are looking for any shred of proof, hope or betting trend that would justify them backing their team at home Sunday against the Denver Broncos.
Frankly, we think they may never find any.
The Denver Broncos are 15-0 SU and 12-3 ATS in their last 15 regular season games, and will look to keep the ball rolling on the road against the Cowboys. Denver opened as an 8.5-point road favorite at most sportsbooks monitored by OddsShark.com.
Head-to-head? Sorry, Denver is 6-2 SU and 6-1-1 ATS against Dallas since 1980.
What about as a road favorite, does Denver struggle? Sorry, they are 6-2 SU and 7-1 ATS lately in this role.
Maybe the Broncos are hexed against NFC East teams? Hardly, they are 8-1 ATS in nine games against this division.
It is getting to the point where the Broncos are starting to look like a video game offense, in much the same way as the New England Patriots did back in their undefeated regular season back in 2007. The offense is averaging a staggering 44.75 points per game, with Peyton Manning racking up 16 passing touchdowns with no interceptions.
Dating back to last year, the Broncos have won each of their last eight regular season games by at least 13 points.
Right when it looked like the Dallas Cowboys could take a stranglehold on the NFC East, the Cowboys fell to San Diego 30-21 last Sunday to fall to 2-2 SU and 3-1 ATS on the year.
The Cowboys have struggled against good passing teams this season, allowing 428 passing yards against New York and 394 passing yards against San Diego. The last area of weakness you want is one on passing defense with Peyton Manning coming to town.
The OVER is 6-0-1 in Denver's last seven games and is set sky-high once again at 56 points this Sunday. Denver has fared well against the Dallas Cowboys historically with a 6-2 SU and 6-1-1 ATS record against Dallas in eight meetings since 1980.
Eventually the Broncos are going to have an off game; every team does. But trying to guess when that game is going to come would take a crystal ball. Denver has been printing money for its backers since Week 5 of 2011, and until we start seeing the 20-point spreads we saw back in 2007 against New England, there is no reason not to keep rolling with the Broncos for as long as they keep rolling over the NFL.
