The opening odds for the Cowboys and Rams are out and Dallas is the favorite in Week 8.

NFL: Dallas Cowboys at Los Angeles Rams Jayne Kamin-Oncea-USA TODAY Sports

The Dallas Cowboys had their bye week in Week 7 of the NFL, so we haven’t seen them play since they pulled off a close win over the Los Angeles Chargers on Monday Night Football. When Dallas does return to the field, it will be this Sunday against the Los Angeles Rams. Instead of going on the road, Dallas will be at home at AT&T Stadium, a place where recently they have played pretty well.

The Rams are coming off a come-from-ahead loss by allowing the Pittsburgh Steelers two fourth quarter touchdowns, leaving the Rams with a 3-4 record on the year.

According to DraftKings Sportsbook Dallas is a 5.5-point favorite over the Rams.

The Cowboys should be rested from their bye week and ready to play with plenty of energy. The real question is did they get any of their major problems fixed over the bye week? The offense in the redzone, the running game, and penalties are among the major issues the Cowboys have had on the year. It’s up to Mike McCarthy and company to do better in those areas.

Would you give the 5.5 points and bet on Dallas?
