The Cowboys look to bounce back at home over the surprisingly hot Buccaneers. NFL betting markets corners this game with the host but, perhaps, the value bet is with the Bucs.

   Tampa Bay Buccaneers vs Dallas Cowboys  

 

Point Spread Value

The Dallas Cowboys’ incredible winning streak ended abruptly last Sunday Night, a 10-7 loss to the NY Giants in primetime football betting at MetLife. It marked a sweep by the Giants over their lofty divisional rivals. In any event, the Cowboys have assured a spot in the playoffs behind a solid 11-2-0 SU mark that includes a 9-4-0 ATS record with a 7.8 winning margin and +5.9 differential versus the spread. It’s no surprise the Cowboys enter week 15 NFL betting markets as the firm home chalk but laying almost a touchdown does seem a bit rich given the way the Bucs have turned around their season of late. Tampa is riding the momentum of a five-game winning streak and improve to 8-5-0 ATS with a -0.2 losing margin and +2.6 differential versus the spread. Don’t know about you, but the Bucs could make it a lot harder than the market seems to think.

The Survivor

Finally, the Cowboys juggernaut came to a screeching halt. It was bound to happen and the Giants were always likely to do the job seeing as they were the only team to beat the Cowboys in the 2016-2017 campaign. With the monkey off their backs now, a playoff spot a certainty, there is less pressure on the Cowboys to win this game than on the Bucs. That said the Cowboys will still try to cement top seed in the NFC one would think and a win over the Bucs would go a long way towards that end. This is a tough game to predict and either team could potentially win. For our money, we’re shading the Cowboys for week 15 NFL picks. Having said that it wouldn’t surprise us if the Bucs continued winning.

The Dallas Cowboys are 5-8-1 in O/U betting while the Tampa Bay Buccaneers are 6-6-1 in O/U betting. Both teams are relatively balanced on both sides of the ball, playing within their means. That’s one aspect to their successful campaigns thus far.  Pivotally, the Bucs have cashed on the UNDER in their last four games.
