The Dallas Cowboys travel to the Mall of America Field in Minneapolis this upcoming Sunday afternoon to take on the Minnesota Vikings in a crucial NFC matchup as both teams come into this game with their season on the brink of disaster with another loss. Kickoff is set for 4:15 p.m. and the game will be broadcast nationally of FOX.

Dallas was 5-0 coming off a bye week but saw that streak come to an abrupt end with a shocking 34-27 loss to Tennessee at home last Sunday. The Cowboys were a 6 ½ point favorite and the total went ‘over’ the 43 ½ point line. The loss dropped Dallas to 1-3 both straight-up and against the spread. The total has been evenly split in the first four games with two games going ‘over’ and two staying ‘under’.

The Cowboys’ offense has completely favored the passing game this year as they are averaging 326.3 yards per game through the air, which is third best in the league. The problem is they cannot or will not run the ball as they are only averaging 94.2 yards per game on the ground, ranking them 24th. NFL Betting

Another major problem for the ‘Boys has been the amount of times they have coughed up the ball. They currently have a turnover ratio of -4. QB Tony Romo has thrown five interceptions in his first four games after only throwing nine in 16 games last year. Defensively, Dallas is ranked eighth in total yards allowed but 21st in points allowed. The one positive stat is that the Cowboys are ranked 12th against both the pass and the run.

Minnesota’s season is off to the same start as Dallas after a 29-20 loss to the Jets last Monday night dropped its record to 1-3 both SU and ATS. The Vikings failed to cover as a four-point road underdog and the total went ‘over’ the 38 point line. The total has actually stayed ‘under’ in three of their first four games.

The Vikings’ problems so far have revolved around the erratic play of QB Brett Favre. He has only thrown for 861 yards, completing just 56.6 percent of his passes. Favre has also thrown seven interceptions which are as many as he threw all last year. The loss of WR Sidney Rice, his favorite target last season, to an injury has not helped the cause but he just does not look comfortable running this offense for far this year. It remains to be seen how much the addition of WR Randy Moss will help the situation.

Minnesota’s offense as a whole is ranked 18th in average yards per game (330.2) and 29th in average points per game (15.8). Defensively the Vikings have been much better, giving up an average of 289.2 yards per game which is ranked fifth and 16.8 points per game which is ranked seventh.

The Cowboys are just 1-6 ATS in their last seven games against the Vikings and the home team is 5-1 ATS in the last six games between these two. Minnesota is 6-1-1 ATS in its last eight home games overall and the total has stayed ‘under’ in five of the last six games of this series.

The total has gone UNDER in 4 of Dallas’s last 5 games when playing on the road against Minnesota
The total has gone UNDER in 11 of Dallas’s last 15 games
The total has gone UNDER in 5 of Dallas’s last 5 games on the road

The total has gone UNDER in 7 of Minnesota’s last 8 games at home
Minnesota is 6-1 SU in its last 7 games when playing Dallas
The total has gone UNDER in 5 of Minnesota’s last 6 games when playing Dallas
