Why the Dolphins can cover: Cowboys vs. Dolphins

The Dolphins have won four of their last five games, with the lone blemish being an embarrassing 42-0 loss at home to the Tennessee Titans on MNF in Week 14. Miami bounced back to win 30-0 over the New York Jets last week, its seventh win by 14 points or more, and now coach Mike McDaniel will look to end the narrative that Miami cannot beat the best teams in the NFL.

The Dolphins have the best offense in the NFL (441 points) and the second-best defense (5,797 yards) through 14 games. The defense ranks 14th (291 points) and 5th (4,108 yards) in yards allowed. Let’s see which team to choose here. The Cowboys defense has shown some vulnerability in recent weeks, allowing 35 points three weeks ago to the Seahawks and 31 points last week to the Bills.

Why the Cowboys can cover

Dallas has won six of the past seven meetings in this series and has covered five times in the last six games. The Cowboys are coming off a five-game winning streak, including wins over Philadelphia and Seattle, and are only one game behind the Eagles in the NFC East. They can’t afford to lose on Sunday.

The Cowboys have been led by quarterback Dak Prescott, who has been one of the MVP contenders all season, who has passed for 3, 639 yards with 28 touchdowns and 7 interceptions.

Wide receivers have also been productive, with Lamb catching 103 of his 1,306 passes for 1,337 yards and 8 touchdowns, and Pollard running for 848 all-purpose yards and 5 touchdowns. Dallas has covered six of its last nine games against the spread. Find out which team to back here.
