Why Bet on the Dallas Cowboys?

The Dallas Cowboys made a statement in the Eastern Division of the National Conference by defeating the Philadelphia Eagles and taking over first place. However, two losses in a row made them fall from grace. 

The last one was 22-20 against the Miami Dolphins, where an excellent offensive performance of 10 points in the last quarter was not enough for the Texas franchise to win in Florida. As a result, they lost first place in their division against the Eagles, who won last week. 

However, the Cowboys’ two-game losing streak should not confuse anyone; this is a powerful team that can go far in the postseason if the pieces are in place. For example, this team has a 7-0 record at home. 

At 30 years old, quarterback Dak Prescott continues to show signs of having a great right arm, as he has 30 touchdown passes and only seven interceptions. Those are elite numbers to go along with his 3,892 yards passing. 

Several players appear questionable for this team: Hunter Luepke, Malik Hooker, Johnathan Hankins, Rico Dowdle, and Tyron Smith.

Why Bet on the Detroit Lions?

The Detroit Lions have an active streak of two wins in a row, and the National Conference North Division is settled in their favor. In part, because the competition they have had has not been at a high level. 

However, the Lions are taking advantage, as they did last week when they outgained the Minnesota Vikings 30-24, with a superb performance by Jahmyr Gibbs, who finished with two touchdowns. 

Jared Goff was again safe at quarterback, hitting 30 of 40 passes and gaining 257 yards to lead his teammates. He threw an assist for a touchdown while suffering just ten interceptions on the season and surrendering 27 touchdown passes. 

Another highlight for Detroit is that, away from home, they are 6-2, beating the Bears, Saints, and Chargers in their last outings. 

Currently, the Lions have a record of 11-4, second best in the league and second only to the Baltimore Ravens (12-3). This team has the tools to aim high when the playoffs begin. 

The Lions have CJ Gardner-Johnson on the injured list, while Brock Wright and Taylor Decker are questionable.

Final Betting Analysis: Cowboys vs. Lions

Undoubtly, the National Conference will live a party with two teams of great dimension in what has been the regular season. However, the victory will go to the best home team in the league: the Cowboys. 

The numbers at 1XBET have the Cowboys as favorites. The Moneyline for them shows 1.41, while the Lions have 2.97. 

The last time these franchises met was in 2022, and the victory went to Dallas by 24-6. 

Go for a win in the Cowboys’ Moneyline. If you bet $100 at 1.41, you will gain $41 for a total payout of $141.
