- Tony Pollard has +500 odds to score a touchdown for the Cowboys.
DALLAS - After Andy Dalton began the third quarter of Monday Night Football with an interception, the sportsbooks did not treat the Dallas Cowboys well.
Underdogs at +12.5 points at the end of the half, Dalton’s interception lowered the Cowboys instantly to +16.5. Those backing the Cowboys’ moneyline were granted instant regret, with Dallas moving from +525 to +925 before the 12-min mark.
The Cowboys extended their odds even further after Kyler Murray led the Arizona Cardinals down the field for a touchdown.
With Dallas jumping to +1600 odds, it knocks out any real opportunity for NFL betting fans still scoping the online sportsbooks. Instead, the betting odds transfer their focus over to who can score for the Cowboys?
Anytime Touchdown Scorer – Cowboys
- Ezekiel Elliott +135
- Amari Cooper +225
- CeeDee Lamb +275
- Michael Gallup +300
- Dalton Schultz +400
- Tony Pollard +500
Despite being at the bottom of the oddboard, Tony Pollard presents an interesting situation for live NFL bettors.
With Elliott fumbling twice early in the game and the lead increasing in the double digits, it shouldn’t shock the world to see Mike McCarthy begin trying anything with his new offense.
With the Cowboys carry count sitting at 9 (Elliott) to Pollard’s 7, the answer may lie in the backup.
Michael spends most of his time betting on over/unders and analyzing algorithms in attempts to beat the book. His focus on statistics comes from an early understanding of mathematics as well as knowledge of opportunity costs. Michael enjoys playing basketball and reading about the NBA whenever he has the free time. When he is not writing, he can be found in Mississippi hitting the sportsbooks and enjoying a margarita… on the rocks, no salt.
