Additionally, recent betting trends point towards a Cowboys win on Sunday. Although home teams are 59-63 leading up to Week 9, favorites are 74-47 and home favorites have won 57.5% of their games so far in the NFL season. It won’t make you a great deal of money, but if you’re betting on the Moneyline in this game, you should be backing the Cowboys.
Betting against the spread in this Broncos vs. Cowboys clash appears a straightforward affair. The Cowboys are 7-0 against the spread so far this season. Meanwhile, the Broncos are only 4-4. However, the Cowboys have only covered the 9.5 spread in two of their games this season. Furthermore, the Broncos have only lost by more than this spread twice.
Broncos vs. Cowboys prediction
Can Denver continue their dominance over Dallas when the two teams collide in this Broncos vs. Cowboys Week 9 clash? Or will the Cowboys extend their win streak in the 2021 NFL season to seven consecutive wins with a resounding beatdown of the Broncos?
What happens on Sunday afternoon will be largely dependent on one factor: Dak Prescott. Although Cooper Rush threw for 325 yards and 2 touchdowns in the Cowboys’ 20-16 win over the Minnesota Vikings in Week 8, there can be no doubt that a Dak-led Dallas is an infinitely more terrifying prospect for opposing defenses.
It’s hard to imagine Rush having the same impact against a Broncos defense that is one of the best against the pass this season. Denver has allowed the second-lowest completion percentage (58.3%) of any team in the NFL this season. Furthermore, just 3.4% of passing plays result in a touchdown (fourth-lowest in the NFL).
With the Cowboys’ defense being far more porous than the Broncos’ D, there’s the opportunity for Denver to be competitive in this game if their defense can contain the Cowboys’ offense. However, as well as Teddy Bridgewater has played this season, the Cowboys’ offense — in Prescott’s hands — should be able to outscore the Broncos’ best efforts.
