When the Dallas Cowboys play the Buffalo Bills on Sunday, we’ll all be rooting for a Cowboys victory, but there is a way to add a little more spice to the game. Prop bets!
DraftKing Sportsbook has a dizzying array of interesting prop bets for the game, so we’ll take a look at a few to try and get an idea of how the game may go.
All the betting odds at North American sportsbooks are based around a bet of $100. A plus sign (positive odds) indicates your profit on a bet of $100, while a minus sign (negative odds) indicates the amount you would have to bet for a $100 profit.
So, a +200 line means that, should the sports bettor win, they receive $200 profit for every $100 they wager (plus their original $100 back). If the wager had a minus sign (i.e. -200), it would mean that the sports bettors will earn $100 profit for every $200 they wager.
Here are the bets to take.
Dak Prescott under 1.5 passing TDs (+140)
We know that Prescott has been a touchdown machine recently, but we’re betting this week things calm down. The weather in Buffalo could play a role, and the Bills have had some issues with defending the run this season. This is the week Prescott doesn’t have multiple touchdown throws so we’re taking the under.
Stefon Diggs over 69.5 receiving yards (-115)
Stephon Gilmore did an outstanding job containing A.J. Brown last week, but Brown still had 94 yards. We can see Josh Allen feeding Diggs plenty of targets, and the Bills scheming to get Diggs favorable matchups. Take the over on Diggs.
CeeDee Lamb under 89.5 receiving yards (-115)
Conversely, we’re taking the under on Lamb and 89.5 yards. Prescott seems very content to spread the ball around with Jake Ferguson, Brandin Cooks and Tony Pollard all getting into the mix. Teams desperately want to take Lamb out of the game so he will see plenty of bracket coverage.
Josh Allen over 34.5 rushing yards (-120)
The Cowboys always have trouble with mobile quarterbacks. The way they pass rush with stunts and movement on the defensive line can compromise gap control. That’s where Allen can make the yards and we expect him to do that plenty in this game. Take the over.
