The Week 11 matchup between the Dallas Cowboys (6-3) and Minnesota Vikings (8-1) takes place at U.S. Bank Stadium in Minneapolis.
Four points favored Dallas against Green Bay on Sunday, but the Packers defeated the Cowboys 31-28 after a come-from-behind victory.
The Vikings had arguably their biggest win of the season, taking down the Buffalo Bills 33-30 in overtime. Minnesota was +6.5 point underdogs and moved to 8-1 with an impressive road victory.
This could potentially be a preview of an NFC playoff matchup. Both teams have played incredibly well up to this point and want to continue that success. Who will win this one? Let’s take a look at the best NFL Odds for the Cowboys vs. Vikings matchup.
Odds, Moneyline, And over/under
Spread: Dallas (-2)
Moneyline: Cowboys (-130); Vikings (+110)
Dallas is a 1.5-point road favorite against Minnesota and is at -120 on the money line. The over/under is also at 47.5. This will be a very close game, and Dallas is the slight favorite because oddsmakers think that the Vikings will be on a comedown after what happened against the Bills. If the Cowboys didn’t lose to the Packers, then the spread here would probably be bigger too. The over/under makes sense but might be a little high because both of these teams have great defenses too. This spread could also move a bit because it’s such a close spread right now too.
The Cowboys are 4-0 ATS in their last four games after allowing more than 30 points in their previous game.
The Vikings are 3-0-1 ATS in their last four games following a straight-up win.
Dallas Cowboys Injuries: RB Ezekiel Elliott (Knee) Q, LB Anthony Barr (Hamstring) Q
Minnesota Vikings Injuries: OLB Za’Darius Smith (Knee) Q, TE Irv Smith Jr. (Ankle) O
Dak Prescott Vs. The Vikings Secondary
Dak Prescott has been okay this year. He has 856 passing yards, six passing touchdowns, and four interceptions, and a 64% completion percentage on the year. Dak needs to be better than he has been, especially against a team as good as the Vikings. Minnesota is not that good against the pass and gives up 282 passing yards a game, so Prescott could have a bounce-back game here. Dallas can run the ball against anyone, but to take that next step, Dak needs to take advantage in this matchup.
Dalvin Cook Vs. The Cowboy’s Front Seven
Dalvin Cook is the focal point of this Vikings offense. He has 145 carries, 727 rushing yards, and six rushing touchdowns on the year. His best game was last week when he ran for 119 yards and one touchdown on 14 carries. The Cowboys were just gashed against the Packers on the ground and are now giving up 143 rushing yards a game, which is a good matchup for Cook. If Cook can get going against the Cowboys, then the Vikings will be in a great spot in this game.
