3 best early prop bets for Cowboys vs Vikings Week 11 NFC battle
The Dallas Cowboys still have incredibly high playoff hopes, but morale is low after an altogether embarrassing loss to a Green Bay Packers team Dallas should have beaten.
To give this fanbase the faith they need, America’s Team needs to head to Minneapolis and prove that they can compete with one of the best teams in football. Minnesota is playing great football led by Kirk Cousins. While he may not be the most mobile quarterback, his run game and passing game are firing strongly behind the strength and talent of Justin Jefferson and Dalvin Cook. Both the wide receiver and running back have been stellar this season, especially in their upset win over Buffalo in Week 10.
This game truly could go either way, but here are some betting points you may want to know ahead of Sunday’s game.
- The Cowboys are 6-2 against the spread in their last eight games. Going into this game as the favorite is a huge deal for Dallas.
- The Vikings are 10-3 against the spread in their last 13 games against Dallas
- The over is 4-1 for the Cowboys’ last five road matchups
Dallas Cowboys 3 Best Early Prop Bets for Week 11 vs. the Vikings
**All numbers are from BetMGM**
1. Dak Prescott Over 12.5 Rushing Yards (-120)
With Ezekiel Elliott still limited, the Cowboys will need to find other ways to diversify their ground attack against the Vikings. Expect Tony Pollard’s over to hit, too, but this Prescott prop feels like a fun one to parlay — maybe with an alternate spread like Cowboys -3.5 if you really believe in these road graders?
2. Dalton Schultz Over 42.5 Receiving Yards (-110)
This prop hit last week, and if you keep giving it to the betting public, they’re going to keep taking it, especially as Michael Gallup attempts to work his way into form and Noah Brown remains a tangential part of the offense at best. Schultz will be Prescott’s security blanket again on Sunday.
3. Dalvin Cook Over 78.5 Rushing Yards (-115)
Cook is currently engaged in Beast Mode, and the only strength of the Cowboys’ middle of the pack run defense is its ability to bend without breaking. That bending, unfortunately, has left them in the league’s bottom 10 in rushing yards allowed. Expect Cook to approach and likely surpass 100 yards rushing in this one.
