Dallas Cowboys Odds, Bet Types, & Team History

The Dallas Cowboys went 6-10 in 2020, finishing third in the NFC East. Dallas started 2-7, lost QB Dak Prescott for the season in Week 5 and still managed to have a chance at the division title in Week 17. With one of the NFL’s top offenses and a reshaped defense, the Cowboys are out to prove that last season was a fluke.

Prescott was among the league’s passing leaders in his abbreviated season, racking up 1,856 yards and 12 total touchdowns (three rushing). A shoulder injury sidelined him for a portion of the offseason but he’s expected to be ready for Week 1.

Ezekiel Elliott will need to be more of a factor in 2021. The Cowboys lead running back failed to top 1,000 yards for only the second time in his career. The receiving game took an expected dip after Prescott went out, but there was no denying the talent of that group. Dallas has all five of its top five pass catchers back. Amari Cooper leads the bunch after recording 92 catches for 1,114 yards and five scores last year.

Dallas’ defense ranked 28th in points allowed, though there were some bright spots. Linebacker Jaylon Smith made 152 total tackles while Trevon Diggs had three interceptions and 14 pass breakups as a rookie. The Cowboys added veterans in Keanu Neal and Malik Hooker while selecting defensive players with eight of their 11 draft picks.

The Cowboys open the 2021 NFL season at the Tampa Bay Buccaneers. You can view the Action Network’s top odds for the game below in addition to an odds comparison for every Week 1 game right her

Cowboys Rivals

The Cowboys finished third in the NFC East at 6-10, extending their playoff drought to two years. Dallas started 2-7 and rallied to win four of its final seven games. The Cowboys haven’t posted consecutive losing seasons since they had three in a row from 2000 to 2002.

The Washington Football Team captured the East at 7-9 for their first playoff appearance in five years. The New York Giants ended up second at 6-10, their best finish since reaching the playoffs in 2016. And the Philadelphia Eagles came in last at 4-11-1. The NFC East was the lone division in football without a winning team last season.

Betting on the Dallas Cowboys

Dallas Cowboys Point Spreads

Betting point spreads are wagers based on the expectation that a team will win or lose by a certain number of points. The Cowboys went 6-10 overall, but were worse against the spread at 5-11. Dallas’ 10 losses came by an average of 13.6 points while it won six games by a margin of 9.7 points. Here’s an example:

  • Eagles +2.5 (+110)
  • Cowboys -2.5 (-110)

In this situation, the Eagles are 2.5 point underdogs against the Cowboys. If Dallas wins the game by three or more points, a $100 wager on the Cowboys would come with a payout of $90.91. If Philadelphia won the game outright or lost by two points or less, the same $100 wager would net $110 plus the original $100 for a total of $210.

FAQ: Everything you need to know about point spreads

Cowboys Over/Unders aka Cowboy Totals

Over/under, also called point total, is a wager placed on the combined scoring of a single game. Bookmakers come up with a number and you can either bet the over or — you guessed it — the under. Here’s how it works:

Let's say the Giants play the Cowboys and the over/under is set at 49 points. A wager on the over would require New York and Dallas to score 50 total points or more to win. Betting the under is an expectation that the two teams would score 48 or fewer points. It's also possible for the bet to push, which would happen if the game finished with exactly 49 points scored.

In 2020, Dallas averaged 24.7 points per game (17th in NFL) and allowed 29.6 points (28th in NFL). The Cowboys were one of the NFL’s better teams when it came to exceeding point totals, going 9-7 against the over.

FAQ: Betting the point total, explained | What is a push?

Dallas Cowboys Moneylines

Dallas wasn’t the ideal pick when betting the moneyline in 2020. The Cowboys were streaky with losing skids of two games (twice) and four games in addition to a late-season, three-game winning streak.

Check out this example:

  • Cowboys -120
  • Football Team +210

The minus (-) and plus (+) signs distinguish the favorite from the underdog, making Dallas the favorite in this scenario. Odds can be understood more clearly if you think in terms of $10 or $100 increments. A wager on the Cowboys odds would mean every $120 bet nets $100. And it's the opposite for underdogs: Here the Football Team moneyline was set at +210, meaning a $100 wager would profit $210.

Moneylines are also commonly used when making parlays, which are multiple bets tied into one. Let’s say you bet the Cowboys moneyline and a -2.5 point spread, Dallas would need to win by three points or more for that bet to be successful. The risk is greater, but so is the reward with increased odds. Take advantage of new bettor opportunities like BetMGM Bonus Code and use our Odds Calculator to calculate any bet amount or conversion.

Dallas Cowboys Props

Player props are wagers on a single player, and they're tied to a single stat found in the box score for a game or even the whole season. These are among the most fun to bet on, especially if you're already playing fantasy football and like the player-specific focus it offers. Check out a hypothetical example below:

  • Dak Prescott 2021 passing yards: 4,250.5

FAQ: Here’s how prop betting works

Cowboys Futures

Futures are somewhat similar to prop bets in the way that both are monitored over the course of a season. Except most future bets are focused on end of season success. Examples of futures are:

  • Dallas Cowboys odds to win the NFC East
  • Dallas Cowboys odds to win the NFC
  • Dallas Cowboys odds to win the Super Bowl
  • Dak Prescott’s odds to win Comeback Player of the Year

If you’re confident that the Cowboys can win the NFC East or that Prescott will light it up all season long after his injury, this is the place to be. For a full list of NFL futures, click or tap here.
