The Cardinals are 7-1 against the spread (ATS) on the road this season, while the Cowboys have been a covering machine at 12-3 ATS.
While this spread may look inflated compared to the lookahead number, I beg to differ. Using full-season priors, it is, but it’s clear that the full season isn’t indicative of what this Cardinals team is at this present moment.
As the Cardinals limp into the postseason, we could looking back on this team the same way we did last season’s Steelers, who started 11-0 before losing four out of their last five games and subsequently getting eliminated in the first round of the playoffs.
Given the struggles of the Arizona defense and its inability to stop the run, I don’t see this team keeping up with Dak Prescott and the Cowboys offense. Lay the points with the Cowboys.
Pick: Cowboys -5.5 | Bet to: -6
