PICK 1: Vikings +3

This is a tough game to predict, as these teams are eerily close in terms of production and personnel.

Dak Prescott is typically an edge over Kirk Cousins, but Cousins has thrown for 13 TDs and just one INT the last five games. Prescott’s thrown for six TDs and six INTs in that same span. Take the points in what should be a good game.

PICK 2: Under 47.5 Points

Cowboys quarterback Dak Prescott has struggled against some of the top defenses this season.
Cowboys quarterback Dak Prescott has struggled against some of the top defenses this season.

Cousins rightfully gets flack for being poorer in the big games, but Prescott has beaten up on the weak as well. He has a 3-to-1 TD-to-INT ratio against defenses ranked in the bottom half of the league (five games) and a 0.75-to-1 ratio against upper-half defenses (three games).

Minnesota’s defense ranks 10th against the pass and seventh overall. Both teams also have the RBs to pound the rock.

PICK 3: Highest-Scoring Half – First

Both these teams have shown the ability to put up points in any half and any quarter. But their defenses have played far better after the break. On the entire season, the Cowboys are allowing just 7.0 points per game in the second half, the Vikings only 7.3. Each team allows more than 10 ppg in the first half.

The defense of the Vikings is ranked seventh overall in the NFL this season.

PICK 4: First Half – Over 23.5 Points

Over the last three weeks, the Vikings and Cowboys are averaging a combined 30.1 ppg in the first half. They’re also allowing a combined 25.7 ppg. Expect a flurry of points before the defenses hunker down for the final 30 minutes.

PICK 5: First Team TD – Vikings

Only once in the last four weeks and three times all season have the Cowboys scored the first touchdown in their games. The Vikings have done so in three of the last five weeks and five times overall.
