Dallas Cowboys vs Arizona Cardinals Odds, Prediction, and Pick
The Dallas Cowboys seem to have finally gotten on a roll. While they may not be doing it in the most attractive ways each week, they are still winning, and are now on a four game winning streak. Now they had on the road to take on the Arizona Cardinals, who have now won three of their last four games with back-up quarterback John Skeleton at the helm. The Cardinals have struggled a bit this year though outside of those wins, and currently hold a 4-7 overall record. The real problem for this team came over a span of six games through the middle of the season in which they lost all six games, and found themselves at the bottom of the division with the St. Louis Rams. The Cardinals are going to need a big game out of Larry Fitzgerald in this game to pull off the win, and he could be in for a huge day against this Dallas secondary which has struggled quite a bit at times.

The Dallas Cowboys on the other hand spent the first seven weeks of the season going back and forth between success and tough losses, and even mixed in a bad loss to the Philadelphia Eagles on the road. The team has only won their last two games by a combined four points, but many people overlook the fact that these games were against a divisional rival in the Washington Redskins on the road, and against a Miami Dolphins team who, after starting winless through 7 games, had actually won three games straight. While they aren't the most impressive wins out there, the Cowboys and Tony Romo are getting the job done when they need to.
This game will kick off at 4:15pm EST and has an interesting betting line, which is one that I really like when all is said and done.

One thing that many people tend to overlook in this one, is the incredible number of Dallas Cowboys fans that live in Arizona. I wouldn't be shocked to see a ton of Cowboys' jerseys in attendance at this game, even though the Boys' are the road team. The crowd will be a wash here, and I think that the Cowboys defensive line will give John Skeleton fits throughout this game. The Cardinals will have their fair share of ball movement against the Cowboys injured secondary, but in the end I see Dallas holding down their win streak and extending it to five games. I'm going with the Dallas Cowboys to win this one by a touchdown.

Something interesting to note about this game is that the line actually started as the Dallas Cowboys -6.5, and has moved a full two points. This means that the Cardinals are getting bet, which is tough to believe. Many people are buying into the fact that the Cardinals have won three of four games, but their wins have come against the Rams (twice), who are at the bottom of the division, and against an Eagles team who could lose to any team, any week of the season. The Cardinals have shown signs of bright spots across the roster, including cornerback Patrick Peterson; but they'll won't have enough to keep this one closer than a touchdown in the end. I'm picking the Dallas Cowboys to win and cover as well.
Dallas Cowboys -4.5
