Point Spread: 
Atlanta -3

The NFC East will take on the NFC South when the Dallas Cowboys (5-3) travel to Peach State to meet with the Atlanta Falcons (4-4) a.k.a. The Dirty Birds. The contest will take place at Mercedes-Benz Stadium in Atlanta, Georgia on Sunday, November 12th, 2017 at 4:25 PM ET. The contest will be televised on FOX. The two teams have not met since 2015 where the Falcons were the victors in the last engagement. The final score was 39-28 Dirty Birds when they took down America’s Team in Big D. Overall, Atlanta owns a two-game winning streak in this series but both parties have split the last ten meetings five wins per side.

Atlanta and Dallas enter this match-up on contrasting narratives. Atlanta fell on the road last week when they were up-ended by the Carolina Panthers in a pivotal divisional clash. Atlanta’s typically catalytic offense floundered yet again and the Cats defeated the Birds 20-17. Atlanta has not scored more than 17 points in four of its previous five outings. All of which resulted in losses. For Dallas, the Cowboys continue to impress and come in off an eyebrow raising win against the Kansas City Chiefs. Dallas has now won three in a row against San Francisco, Washington, and KC. The Cowboys will be without starting running back Ezekiel Elliot who will be serving a six-week suspension for violating league conduct rules.


Public Money Consensus

Despite the Elliot suspension, many are enamored with the Cowboys in this market. 74% of the public cash and 84% of the tickets are with the Cowboys against the spread in this market. 68% of the consensus like America’s Team in this scenario, as well. With respect to these narratives, books have not come off the initial number offered at the onset of this market. On the contrary, in Over/Under markets the number has diminished by 4.5 points to reveal heavy steam on the Under. 87% of the cash on the Under. Contrarily, 66% of the ticket action is on the Over.

Dallas Cowboys at Atlanta Falcons Week 10 Prediction

The Cowboys have picked up a few noteworthy wins in the past couple of weeks and this has generated a lot of attention and fanfare in their direction. Despite their portfolio of performances, the Cowboys are priced as a dog this week with due reason. The Cowboys will be without the engine of their offense but some believe that the Dallas offensive line will be able to erase this void by creating the holes and opportunities for the next man up. Both Darren McFadden and Alfred Morris have extensive expertise at this level so there is certainly merit in believing the rushing operations will resume as normal.

However, Atlanta has been looking for a signature win this season to erase the skepticism that has surrounded them. Many have said this team has a “Super Bowl Hangover” and declared the Birds have little chance of returning to the post-season. There is no better way to quiet critics than take down a NFL blue blood in a high-profile contest like this one. Atlanta will look to make a statement in front of their home crowd.
