The Baltimore Ravens travel to Dallas, where they look to break the Cowboys’ stranglehold on the NFL that has now reached 8-0 SU ATS. Join expert capper as he breaks down this game for a valuable NFL pick.

Baltimore Ravens vs Dallas Cowboys

All Baltimore can do is counter with a pair of wins (following 4 consecutive losses) that has left them at 5-4 SU for the season. But with the recent demise of the Steelers, helped along by this Dallas team last week and a sub-standard 1st half by 3-5-1 SU Cinci, the Baltimore 5-4 SU record is good enough for the division lead. Very sad! I will follow the momentum of the Cowboys' streak, despite the fact they will be getting a lot of public love and that Baltimore has 3 extra days to prepare following a rather easy game.

That easy Ravens' game to which I referred was against Cleveland. In the first meeting against the Browns on September 18th, Baltimore fell behind 20-0, before rebounding for a 25-20 win. Along with the 28-7 home victory vs. the Browns, last Thursday means Baltimore has outscored Cleveland 53-7 in the last 6 quarters. So what! Baltimore is living off their defense this season, allowing just 18/282. Most impressive is the rush defense, allowing 71/3.3. That's the best run defense in the NFL! Today, that unit will be tested by the Cowboys' No. 1 running game that totes the rock 34 times a game for 161/4.8. On the other side of the ball, they feature the league's 2nd best rush defense, who allows opponents to average only 20 carries per game (lowest in the league) and to gain just 82 YPG. Baltimore's own running game is a bit faulty at just 85/3.5, Giving the Cowboys a huge overland advantage. Anyone who has watched Baltimore QB Flacco knows he is not the same since his knee surgery. In short, this is a team that cannot matchup vs. the Cowboys. But, who can? Striking the nail in the coffin of the Ravens this week is the fact they are 0-9 ATS vs. a foe who is off consecutive wins and covers!

The Cowboys remain red hot on that 8-0 SU ATS run. They have won those games by an average of 11 PPG. In their 35-30 win vs. the Steelers, last week was their 7th consecutive offensive game of 400 or more yards. RB Elliott proved he was the real deal with 209 all-purpose yards. QB Prescott, again, proved to be heady under pressure and now has a 14/2 ratio. Huge positive intangible for the Cowboys this week was the concession speech of Tony Romo on Tuesday, in which he admitted that “Dak's time is now” and that he would do anything he could in the role of backup QB to support the Dallas' winning streak and team effort. That was a huge boost to the psyche of the Cowboys. Lone negative on the selection is the poor history that teams have in the role of favorite after facing the Mike Tomlin coached Pittsburgh Steelers.
