Cowboys at Seahawks betting odds, preview, prediction

Dallas Cowboys take four-game winning streak into tough road matchup at Seattle.

Since the start of the 2012 season, the Seattle Seahawks are 19-1 SU and 15-5 ATS at home. Seattle puts its incredible home success streak on the line this week, hosting the Dallas Cowboys.

Seattle is an 8-point favorite at home at sportsbooks monitored by OddsShark.com. The Seahawks are just too dominant at home to go against, even against a quality opponent like Dallas.

The Seahawks picked up where they left off last season with a 3-1 SU and ATS start. With the exception of a 30-21 road loss to San Diego, the Seahawks have looked extremely sharp on both sides of the ball, keeping opponents in check on defense while scoring 27.5 points per game. Russell Wilson continues to prove that he is the perfect quarterback to run this offense, throwing for eight touchdowns and just one interception through Seattle's first four games.

OddsShark Computer Prediction: Seattle 34.5, Dallas 25.5

Dallas visits Seattle at CenturyLink Field on Sunday at 4:25pm ET.

The Dallas Cowboys have been one of the biggest surprises of the 2014 season. Projected to finish at or near the bottom of the NFC East before the season started, Dallas fit the bill in an ugly home loss to San Francisco in its season opener. But since then, the Cowboys are 4-0 SU and 3-1 ATS, averaging 29.5 points per game over that stretch thanks to the strong play of Tony Romo and a breakout season from DeMarco Murray. The Cowboys are 5-2 ATS in their last seven games as a road underdog.

Sunday's total is set at 47 at sportsbooks monitored by OddsShark.com. The UNDER is 5-1 in the last six games between these two teams and 6-1 in Seattle's last seven games at home.

Dallas deserves props for its season so far, but the Cowboys have only defeated one team with a winning record this season, and that was last week in overtime against Houston. Can the Cowboys really hang with a team that is as strong on both sides of the ball as Seattle? Perhaps at a neutral location, but CenturyLink Field is where offenses go to die; look for Seattle to pick up the win and cover.
