The underdog in any game the Dallas Cowboys have played in, has covered 21 out of 25 times. That’s an incredible 81 percent ATS.
Why is that amazing trend happening and how can bettors make money?
First let’s understand the team.
The Dallas Cowboys are one of the most famous teams in the world, not only in the NFL, but in all sports, as the famed Dallas Star logo has been seen in over 200 countries. This popularity has made the odds-makers shift their lines according to just how popular the team is and where the public will bet.
And when the Cowboys lose, there is a nonstop debate as to why they lost and the pressure that will continue to mount until they win again.
With that, many bettors jump off the Dallas bandwagon believing that the magic is gone, yet this has appeared to be the best time to jump on the Cowboys, seeing as they have been 9-3 ATS as an underdog during the past two seasons.
For NFL handicappers, this stat is something that should not be ignored, seeing as how the Cowboys themselves are 3-1 ATS as an underdog, and an even more impressive 2-0 on the road as an underdog this year.
Winning on the road is not an easy task, and winning on the road as an underdog is even more impressive.
So just do the Cowboys play so well as the underdog?
Probably because they are the type of team that appears to consistently have players who really thrive off of being in the underdog role, and embrace that their backs are against the wall and for some reason have really found consistency in rallying together as a team and coming out firing.
However, the opposite is also true, and when the roles are reversed and the Cowboys are the favorite, they are an abysmal 10-21-1, proving that America’s team is not successful when they are the hunted instead of the hunter.
That’s why bettors looking over the week’s NFL games, need to take a closer look at the Cowboys game and look for a reason to play the underdog.
It really doesn’t matter if the underdog is the Cowboys or the opposite team, as the underdogs both ways have been money.
When bettors have a trend as hot as this one, there is no reason to hop off, instead jump on and join the fun.
Remember, when the Cowboys are rolling well, fade, and when their backs are against the wall, go against them.
