Cowboys vs. Rams CashBet Wagering Analysis

The same online sportsbook gamblers that ran for the tall grass are returning to Dallas.  The Cowboys are showing good board value with Cooper Rush.  And there is nothing like payouts to get the attention of the betting masses.  Los Angeles has a bit of a short week after a Monday night game at San Francisco.  The Rams have not been bad this season.  However, they show a Super Bowl hangover at times.

Cowboys Confound Critics

Last game, the Cowboys won 25-10 against the Commanders as 3-point home favorites.  The game went under the total of 40.5.  Dallas has a record of 3-1 straight up, 3-1 against the spread, and 0-3-1 over/under the Betting on football total.  Dallas ranks 26th for total offense, 23rd for passing, 19th for rushing, and 28th for scoring.  Defensively they rank 7th overall, 6th against the pass, 27th against the rush, and 3rd for points allowed.  Also, Dallas ranks 1st for fewest turnovers lost and 22nd for takeaways.

Namely, Cooper Rush won again, filling in for Dak Prescott.  Rush threw a scoring pass to Michael Gallup in the receiver’s 2022 debut as the Cowboys beat the Commanders on Sunday.  Also, Rush had a TD toss to new No. 1 receiver CeeDee Lamb.  Rush improved to 4-0 in his career as a starter.  He is the first Dallas quarterback to accomplish the feat.

The three Rush-led victories this season for the Cowboys followed the Prescott fractured thumb injury on his throwing hand.  Meanwhile, the Commanders lost a third consecutive game in Carson Wentz’s reunion with an old NFC East.

Most important of all, the Dallas defense hasn’t given up more than 17 points in a game during Rush’s run.  It is the first time the defense has held the team’s first four opponents to 19 points or fewer since 1973.

Washington outgained Dallas 297 yards to 279.  But they had several promising drives stalled by penalties.  Also, flags wiped out interceptions by Benjamin St.-Juste and Kamren Curl.  The Commanders finished with 11 penalties for 136 yards after totaling 128 penalty yards the first three weeks.

Rams Learn About Life in the Spotlight

Last game, the Rams lost 24-9 against the 49ers as 1-point road dogs.  The game went under the total of 42.  Los Angeles has a record of 2-2 straight up, 1-3 against the spread, and 1-3 over/under the NFL bets total.  LA ranks 28th for total offense, 20th for passing, 30th for rushing, and 29th for scoring.  Defensively they rank 16th overall, 20th against the pass, 7th against the rush, and 18th for points allowed.  Also, Los Angeles ranks 28th for turnovers lost and 9th for takeaways.

Namely, Deebo Samuel turned a short catch into an electric 57-yard touchdown, And then Talanoa Hufanga returned an interception for a score.  Thus, the 49ers beat the Rams.  Nick Bosa had two of San Francisco’s seven sacks against Matthew Stafford.  Bosa has an NFL-best six on the season.

Of great concern was that Los Angeles struggled to move the ball consistently.  And the Rams couldn’t finish drives when they did. They were held to field goals on three trips into the red zone.
