Each of the following statements is true regarding the 2020 Dallas Cowboys:

  • The team will be without starting quarterback Dak Prescott for the rest of the season.
  • The Cowboys have been one of the most disappointing teams through six weeks.
  • Despite a 2-4 record, Dallas is the betting favorite to win the NFC East.

There’s no question the Cowboys have been ravaged by injuries and comes off a very ugly prime-time loss to the Arizona Cardinals on Monday Night Football.

The good news is the NFC East is so bad that Dallas’ 2-4 record is currently the best in the division, ahead of Philadelphia (1-4-1 ), New York (1-4) and Washington (0-5).

Dallas Cowboys Betting Odds

Simply by default, sportsbooks have “America’s Team” as the favorite to win the NFC East, evidenced by DraftKings’ +115 odds.

The Eagles are just behind at +135, with the Giants and Washington at 8-1 and 9-1, respectively.

But with that said, the Cowboys are currently the only division favorites with plus-money odds, showing that oddsmakers basically see the NFC East as a toss-up between Dallas and Philly through six weeks of the season.

Unsurprisingly, while sportsbooks think the Cowboys are the likeliest team to take home the NFC East crown, Dallas’ odds to win the Super Bowl have fallen to 60-1, making it the 18th-most likely champion despite having an inside track to a berth in the postseason.

Dallas will take on division-rival Washington in Week 7, with the Cowboys listed as early 3-point road favorites (see live NFL odds here) for Sunday’s game.
