Dallas Cowboys vs Atlanta Falcons Prediction:
This is going to be an offense heavy game as both the teams have elite offences but very questionable secondaries.
With a 52.5 over/under stake, this is expected to be the highest scoring game of this week. Dallas are the favorites with a -209 moneyline (bet $209, win $100) and with the Cowboys playing against a Falcons secondary which gave 38 points to the Seahawks, Dallas is one of the safer bets for this weekend.
Prediction: Dallas Cowboys
