It’s a tale of two Quarterbacks; Dak Prescott is completing his throws at a career-high 68.3- percent rate, and his 18 touchdown passes are five shy of his career best for a season. For the Lions, they are crossing their fingers that their starter can play.

NFL Point Spread and Betting Analysis

The Cowboys and Lions have played three games since the 2015 season with Dallas winning all three games. All three games were played in Big D. The last time these played a game in the Motor City was back in October 2013, where the Lions won 31-30.

Head-to-head the road team in this series is 4-1 against the spread in the last five games, while the over have hit in seven of the last eight games.

The Lions are 0-4 ATS in their last four games overall. The Cowboys are 5-1 ATS in their last six games played in the month of November.

Dallas Cowboys

The Cowboys are first in total offence averaging 437.4 yards per game and also first in 3 rd down percentage at 51.4 percent.

The Dak Prescott led offence is third in team passing yards with 299.2 per game, and Prescott is ranked second in individual passing yards with 2777 and third (tied) in passing touchdowns with 18.

His top target is Amari Cooper, who is only 152 yards away from hitting the 1000 yards plateau for the third time in his career, and for the first time since the 2016 season, when he was a member of the Oakland Raiders. He’ll face a Lions pass defence that is currently ranked 28 th in the NFL, averaging 272.4 yards against per game.

Add Ezekiel Elliott and his 788 rushing yards to the mix and it’s hard to figure out how this team continues to spin its wheels at 5-4 (5-4 ATS) on the season.

Detroit Lions

The Lions strength is its offence and it looks a lot different when Matthew Stafford isn’t under center. Last week Stafford was a late scratch and Jeff Driskel got his first start of the year. He could only muster a single touchdown and a pair of field goals in a 20-13 loss to the Bears. As of Thursday, Stafford did not practice, and his status for Sunday’s game is still unknown. Ty Johnson is still working his way through concussion protocol after exiting Sunday’s loss to the Bears. If he is unable to start on Sunday, look for J.D. McKissic or Paul Perkins to get the call.

The Lions are still looking for answers on the defensive side of the ball. They are ranked 30 th in total yards allowed, averaging over 400 per game (402.1) and also 26th in points allowed averaging 26.3 per game. Five of their last seven games have gone to the over.
