Ross Benjamin’s NFL Week 2 Perfect Mark
If you followed Ross Benjamin’s NFL week 2 articles, then congratulations. The veteran professional NFL prognosticator went a spotless 4-0 SU&ATS, and it included 3 outright underdog winners. Ross cashed in with Atlanta +5.5, Tennessee +7.0, Dallas +3.0, and Houston -2.0.


Sunday Night NFL Prediction: Bears vs. Cowboys
Dallas will host Chicago on Sunday with the opening kickoff at AT&T Stadium slated for 8:30 PM ET. These teams last played each other in 2014, and Dallas came away with a 41-28 home win.

Current NFL betting odds at Bookmaker indicates that Dallas is a 7.0-point favorite, and there’s a posted total of 48.0. Bookmaker is now offering 50% cash bonuses on any deposit up to $300.


Bears Offensive Struggles
Chicago is off to a 0-2 start, and their unproductive offensive performances in each of those defeats have been a major reason. The Bears are averaging a mere 14.0 points scored and 271.0 total yards per game. Things won’t get any easier on that side of the ball. Jay Cutler sustained a thumb injury during the Bears 29-14 home loss to Philadelphia this past Monday night. Cutler is out indefinitely, and there’s been no specific timetable set for his return. Backup quarterback Brian Hoyer will take over behind center. Hoyer was an integral part of Houston winning the AFC South crown a season ago. However, his atrocious postseason performance during a 30-0 loss to Kansas City sealed his fate in Houston.


Nice Rebound for Cowboys
Dallas began their 2016-2017 regular season campaign with a gut-wrenching 20-19 home loss the New York Giants. Nevertheless, Dallas came back with a huge 27-23 road win last Sunday as a 3.0-point underdog at Washington. Rookie starting quarterback Dak Prescott turned in another solid performance in that win over the defending NFC East champions. Prescott was 22-30 in the air for 278 yards, scored a rushing touchdown, and went a second straight game with no turnovers.


NFL Week 4 Point Spread Betting Angle
Any home favorite (Dallas) coming off an away underdog straight up win over a divisional opponent, and covered by 9.5-points or less, versus an opponent (Chicago) coming off a home favorite straight up loss in which they failed to cover by 4.5 points or more, resulted in the home favorites going 15-2 ATS (88.2%) since 1980.


Time of Possession Factor and Pick
Through its first 2 contests, Dallas holds a sizable time of possession edge of 9:34 per game over its opponents. Contrarily, Chicago’s average time of possession per game is 23:48 compared to 36:12 by the opposition.

With all things being considered, Chicago’s defense has played rather well during its first 2 games. Nonetheless, they’ve been on the field way too much, and it resulted in them wearing down as their games reached its late stages. I look for Dallas to have a huge advantage on Sunday night in time of possession, and that will be a telling factor regarding the outcome of this contest. I’m leaning toward the home favorite for one of my NFL Week 4 predictions.
