Titans vs Cowboys NFL Week 9 Odds & Pick for Monday Night

Written by on November 1, 2018

We are now entering the stage of the NFL season where the good teams always seem to put things together and pull away from the pack. For those teams on the outside of the current playoff picture, there is now a limited amount of time to get things right, with every loss from this point forward pushing those teams ever closer to the brink of elimination. This is especially true for teams playing in a division that has a clear leader, as you are then looking at battling it out for the Wild Card spots, with a lot of other teams also in that hunt.

The Tennessee Titans and the Dallas Cowboys, both of whom come into this one at 3-4, are very much in that situation, with both knowing that a loss here could hammer another nail in the coffin. Both of these teams have had trouble generating any sort of meaningful offense this season, which is why we are looking at a point total set at just 41. The Cowboys are in as a 6 ½ point home favorite.

Why bet on the Tennessee Titans?

When the Titans took out the Philadelphia Eagles as a 3-point underdog a few weeks ago, they moved to 3-1 on the season and looked like a team ready to take control of the AFC South. Since then, though, they have lost 3 in a row and are managing a little over 10 PPG. You cannot expect to be among the playoff pack if you can’t put points on the board on a consistent basis.

The sad part is that the Titans are pretty solid on the defensive side of the football, giving up just 18 PPG. A big part of their problem, besides that offense, is their road play, as they have just 1 win in their last 5 trips outside of Tennessee. They have kept things close, though, going 4-2 ATS in their last 6 games overall, as well as 4-1 ATS in their last 5 trips to Dallas. The UNDER has hit in 4 of their last 6 road games.

  • Rush Yards: 112.29
  • Passing Yards: 226.43

Why bet on the Dallas Cowboys?

The Dallas Cowboys have had moments, most notably in a 40-7 win over Jacksonville a couple of weeks ago, where they look like a very good team. Much like the Titans, though, the Cowboys offense too often misfires, which is why they are averaging just 20 PPG this season.

Titans vs Cowboys is scheduled for Monday Night.

Dak Prescott is throwing for less than 200 YPG this year, while the 3rd down efficiency for this offense is pretty brutal at just 31%. It’s tough to put points on the board if you do not have the ability to keep drives alive with a solid 3rd down conversion rate. If there are any positives to be found with this team, it is that they have won 4 of their last 5 games at home. 9 of their last 11 games have gone UNDER. 

Team Stats

  • Average Score For: 20.00
  • Total Yards: 320.00
  • Rush Yards: 136.86
  • Passing Yards: 183.14
  • Average Score Against: 17.57
  • Total Yards: 313.72
  • Rush Yards: 96.29
  • Passing Yards: 217.43
