Vikings vs Cowboys Prediction and Odds: Preview
Dallas has been on a roll and are one of the contender for the playoffs having won their last five games on a trot. Vikings has won their last two games and will be determined to continue their momentum in the NFL.
Vikings has been erratic throughout their season. Their inconsistency has hurt them in a big way as they have lost matches by a very thin margin. They lost to Arizona Cardinals by a single point and lost to Cincinnati Bengals in overtime.
The other games also could have been won or could have been lost and if they are to show their champion credentials they need a statement win against Dallas.
Vikings head coach Mike Zimmer is well aware with the Dallas’ potential having spent 13 years with the team. They haven’t played a match since their win over the Panthers on 17th October and this extra time off could play a pivotal role.
Dallas has an envious offensive line and Zimmer’s expertise as a defensive coordinator would be priceless. He said,
“(The Cowboys are a) good football team, doing a lot of good things offensively, defensively and special teams. We have to put all of our focus and intensity into practice this week, we have to put it all into Dallas and try to play the best we can.”
Dallas quarterback Dak Prescott has a calf injury issue and the player gave an update on his injury.
“If it was my call and it was totally up to me, yes. But this is something that, I agree with the experts, I don’t want to linger. I don’t want this to be week after week, are we going through this?”
Something I want to nip in the butt, make sure I’m healthy and ready to go so I don’t think about it playing and we’re not having these conversations past today.”
Minnesota has three wins against the spread while Dallas has managed six out of six. The home side has been averaging 24.5 points every game while Dallas’ average point stands at 34.2 which could easily speak volumes about their recent form.
Minnesota has recorded 414.2 yards per game on average while the Cowboys has racked up 460.8 yards per match. The Vikings are yet to win at their home and Dallas’ away run is pretty dominating this season.
Viking’s defense has been pretty good and they have got 21 sacks in their tally. Mike Zimmer has a pretty good record against the League’s top offence and He will design the strategy according to the need of the game.
Dallas head coach Mike McCarthy has been criticized for his game management and he came out in his defence.
I’ve been a head coach a long time. The longer you do it, the things that they say negative about you just kind of stack up. It’s part of the job responsibility, frankly. That’s kind of where I leave it.”
The Vikings are coming after almost a two week gap and it could take time for them to hit the ground. On the contrary, Dallas has had their time on the pitch and will have an edge over them.
