We are in store for an exciting Week 6 matchup when the Arizona Cardinals take on the Dallas Cowboys. Arizona is currently 3-2 on the year and have been very inconsistent week to week. However, they’ll get a struggling 2-3 Cowboys team that just lost their franchise quarterback Dak Prescott for the season. This is an old school NFC East matchup (when the Cardinals were in the division) that will be rekindled this week.

NFL Point Spread and Betting Analysis

The under has been very hot for the Cardinals lately as it is 5-0 in their last five games overall and 4-0 in their past four games when coming in as the favorite. To make it even more enticing, it is also 7-0 in their last seven Monday night games. Arizona is 3-0-1 ATS in their past four games in Week 6 and 8-2-2 ATS in their last 12 games on the road.

On the other hand, the over is 4-0 in the Cowboys last four games overall and 5-0 in their past five home games. Dallas is just 8-20 ATS when playing a team with a winning record but are 6-1 ATS in their last seven Week 6 games.

Arizona Cardinals

The Cardinals were able to get back on track with a 30-10 win over the New York Jets last week. The Cardinals continue to fluctuate up and down, and have been one of the most unpredictable teams in the NFL so far this season. They were able to get a great game out of Kyler Murray this past week though as he passed for 380 yards to go with one touchdown and one interception. Their rushing attack didn’t prove to be that effective, however, as Kenyan Drake continues his struggles this season, going for 60 yards on 18 carries. Chase Edmonds had a 29-yard touchdown run but if you strip that out, the Cardinals ran for 3.06 yards per carry on their other 29 attempts.

Their defense did a great job at stopping the struggling Jets offense but will be facing a tougher task this week against the Cowboys and Ezekiel Elliott. The Cardinals took a big hit defensively, losing All-Pro linebacker Chandler Jones for the year with a bicep injury. His presence will definitely be missed. The good news is they’ll catch the Cowboys at a bad time as they have a laundry list of injuries – including Prescott and the offensive line.

Dallas Cowboys

The Cowboys were able to scrape out a victory over the New York Giants last week, edging them 37-34 on a late field goal. Their win came at the cost of the franchise quarterback. Prescott suffered a gruesome ankle injury and will now miss the rest of the season. The offense definitely slowed down a small bit when Andy Dalton replaced him at quarterback but overall, Dalton had a nice showing. He passed for 111 yards with no touchdowns or interceptions, and was able to orchestrate a drive that set up the game winning field goal at the end of the game. Elliott was able to rush for 91 yards and two touchdowns on 19 attempts, and he will have to continue to carry the load for the Dallas offense. The issue is the offensive line, which was without both starting tackles last week. It’s been tough sledding with the front five banged up.

The Cardinals might show the better record here but their wins have come against San Francisco, Washington and the Jets. Those three teams are a combined 3-12. The Cowboys will have a shot here.
