Indianapolis Colts Betting Trends
After an energizing win over the Las Vegas Raiders in Jeff Saturday’s first game as interim head coach, the Colts looked overmatched in last week’s loss to the Pittsburgh Steelers.
Alarmingly, quarterback Matt Ryan was once again ineffective. Ryan threw for just 199 yards and a touchdown while turning the ball over twice on Monday night. He’s had an unbelievable career but looks to be slightly behind the pace of the game as the Colts quarterback. Ryan sports just an 86.3 passer rating on the season and has been unable to conjure the magic of years past.

Additionally, the Colts’ defense has surrendered over three hundred yards and three touchdowns on the ground over the past two weeks. Ezekiel Elliott and Tony Pollard will be eager to get on the field on Sunday night. Should Indy’s porous run defense continue, the Colts have no shot at winning this game.
Intriguingly, the under is 8-1 in the last 9 Colts road games and 7-1 in Indy’s last 8 games following an against-the-spread loss.
Dallas Cowboys Betting Trends
The Dallas Cowboys offense has looked tremendous in recent weeks. After a week 11 drubbing of the Minnesota Vikings, the Cowboys easily dispatched the division rival Giants last week.
After two early interceptions, Dak Prescott settled into a rhythm in the second half and the Cowboys were unstoppable.

Dallas has lost just one game that Prescott has finished all season, in overtime versus the Green Bay Packers. Moreover, all the betting trends favor the Cowboys. Dallas has won five games this season by 12 or more points. Additionally, the Cowboys are 3-1 against the spread in their last 4 games in Jerry World.
Indianapolis Colts vs Dallas Cowboys Prediction
These teams are headed in opposite directions.
Colts quarterback Matt Ryan looks like he’s on his last legs, while the Cowboys pass-rush alone makes them viable playoff contenders. That being said, the value in this Indianapolis Colts vs Dallas Cowboys matchup lies in betting the total. The under is 4-1 in the last five matchups. Bet the under on Sunday Night Football.
