High expectations surround the Dallas Cowboys this season. The Cowboys boast one of the league’s top offenses and a defense that is quickly becoming one of the NFL’s best units, which is why odds on Dallas to win their division, the NFC, and the Super Bowl are much lower than they were at the beginning of last season. We explain which Dallas options present overlays and which present underlays in our Dallas Cowboys 2022 season NFL Betting guide.
Dallas Cowboys 2022 Season NFL Betting Guide
2022-23 NFL Regular Season
- When: Sep. 8, 2022 – Jan. 8, 2023
Dallas Cowboys Over/Under 10 ½
On paper, the Cowboys look like one of the better teams in the NFL. The offense and defense boast great players. But the schedule is loaded with quality opponents.
The Cowboys host Tampa and Cincinnati in the first couple of weeks. The Boys travel to play the Rams and to Philadelphia in weeks 5 and 6. There are also road games versus Green Bay, Minnesota, Jacksonville, and Tennessee.
If the win-loss total was 10 games, over might be the play. But 10 looks like the ceiling. The half a point makes under the wiser choice.
Total Game Pick: Under 10 ½
Cowboys to win the NFC East -105
Winning the NFC East won’t be easy. Washington and the New York Giants are much better this season than they were last season.
The Philadelphia Eagles should be a good football team. But Dallas is the class of the division. So if you like the Cowboys, go for it because the line is more than fair.
NFC East Odds: Overlay
Dallas to win the NFC Conference +800
But the NFC isn’t close to being as deep as the AFC. The odds aren’t overlaid. But they aren’t underlaid, either. The Cowboys offer fair odds to win the NFC.
NFC Conference Odds: Fair
Dallas to Win the Super Bowl +1725
If Dallas wins the NFC Conference, they require one more win to take home the Lombardi Trophy. The odds suggest Dallas has a worse chance to win the Super Bowl than the Bills, Buccaneers, Chiefs, Packers, Rams, Chargers, 49ers, and Broncos.
On paper, Dallas can compete with any team offering lower odds than they do to win the NFL Championship. The line makes the Boys an overlay to lift the Lombardi Trophy.
Super Bowl Odds: Overlay
QB Dak Prescott to win NFL MVP +1500
It’s tough say the odds on Dak to win the NFL MVP are overlaid. Prescott isn’t the only option. Zeke Elliott remains one of the more talented running backs in the league.
So we should expect McCarthy to utilize Ezekiel more this season than he did last season. McCarthy, though, will ditch Elliott if Zeke isn’t up to the task.
So we can’t say that the odds on Dak to win the MVP are underlaid, either. Let’s go with fair. The +1500 odds on Dak Prescott to win the NFL MVP are fair.
NFL MVP Odds: Fair
