Behold, the closing over/unders in Cowboys games this season: 42.5, 42, 40, 44, 45, 39.5, 40.5, 40, 45.5, 50, 40.

You may have noticed above, but this week’s total is a wee bit different at a sparkling 52.5.

Two things caused the big adjustment:

1) The Cowboys are playing the Saints (duh), and the Saints are good at scoring points (also duh). In their past five games, New Orleans has scored 30, 45, 51, 48 and 31 points.

And 2) Dallas just roasted Washington for 31 points in front of a national TV audience on Thanksgiving day

So if you take these two things at face value, then the over/under makes sense.
