The Indianapolis Colts play the Dallas Cowboys on Sunday Night Football for Week 13. Here are the odds and a prediction for the matchup.
On Monday night, the Indianapolis Colts suffered a tough loss in a primetime game and fell to 4-7-1. However, Indy has to try and turn things around fast because they’ll be back in primetime on Sunday night for Week 13. This time, the Colts won’t be at home facing a struggling team but they’ll be on the road going against the Dallas Cowboys, who have been playing really good football.
Dallas will enter the game at 8-3, coming off two consecutive wins. Additionally, the Cowboys had an extended week since they played on Thanksgiving. That means Dallas won’t just be better than the Colts on Sunday night but Dallas will be more rested as well. Does Indy have a chance to pull off the upset?
Colts vs. Cowboys odds Week 13
As expected, FanDuel currently has Indianapolis as +400 underdogs (bet $100 to win $400). Dallas, on the other hand, is the favorite with -550 odds to win (bet $550 to win $100). In other words, this isn’t expected to be a close game at all and that’s also represented in the spread.
Currently, FanDuel has the spread for the game set at 10.5 points. The odds of the Cowboys winning by 11 or more points is -115 (bet $115 to win $100). However, the odds of the Colts losing by 10 points or less is -105 (bet $105 to win $100).
The over/under for this game is currently set at 43.5 with -110 odds for the over and the under. That means a $110 bet on the over will win $100 if the combined points equal 44 or more and a $110 bet on the under will win $100 if the combined points equal 43 or less.
Colts vs. Cowboys prediction Week 13
Just when you think you can count Indianapolis out, the team finds a way to win a game that they have no business winning. Could that be the case on Sunday night against Dallas? Probably, but it’s unlikely. Dallas is rounding into shape and playing some of the best football in the NFL right now and the Colts are rolling downhill.
Not only is Indy’s offense bad, but the defense took a step back on Monday and it’s possible that they will continue to slow down after trying to carry the team all season. If that’s the case, and the defense is really declining, Indianapolis has no chance of beating the Cowboys or many of the other remaining teams on the schedule.
Colts 10, Cowboys 24
