Cowboys Vikings Spread, Moneyline, Over/Under
When using the Cowboys Vikings spread table, click the dropdown menu and select the type of bet you wish to make.
Betting the point spread is when you wager on how many points a team will win or lose by. A plus sign in front of the Cowboys Vikings spread denotes the underdog, and a minus sign denotes the favorite.
In this case, the Cowboys would have to win by at least two points if you bet them to cover the point spread (-1.5). A spread bet on the Vikings would win if they win the game or lose by one point.
Betting the moneyline is simply betting on which particular team will win a game.
The betting total is the number of combined points the two teams will score. Bettors can choose to bet the over or under on how many total points will be scored in the game.

Cowboys At Vikings Betting Insights
Why The Cowboys Can Cover The Spread
The Vikings may have the gaudy 8-1 record, but the 6-3 Cowboys have been the better team over the course of the season, and not by a little. They rank fourth in DVOA, while the Vikings sit way back at 17th, and that with Cooper Rush starting about half of the season. Dallas has a beatable run defense, but the Vikings seem ill-equipped to attack that as Dalvin Cook hasn’t been his normal self this year. And Kirk Cousins’ passer rating falls 30 points under pressure, which he should himself under by this Dallas rush.
Why The Vikings Can Cover The Spread
All they have to do is win a home game, and winning games seems to be this team’s specialty. The key will be protecting Cousins against this ferocious pass rush. The Vikings look below par there with PFF’s 21st-rated pass blocking unit, but if they can get Dalvin Cook rolling against this run defense, that will allow them to keep the rush honest. Minnesota’s own pass D is exploitable, but Dak Prescott hasn’t shown a high level of play this season.
Reasons To Bet The Over
There’s going to be quite a bit of offensive talent on the field in a game taking place indoors. And one with a close spread, which means nobody is particularly likely to be killing the clock before the final drive of the second half. All you need for the over here is both teams to get to 23 points or so. That isn’t an especially high bar for two teams that just played Week 10 games that went to 59 and 60 in regulation.
Reasons To Bet The Under
Both teams have defenses that are vulnerable in spots where the other team doesn’t look especially well-suited to attacking. The Vikings are weaker against the pass, but Dallas doesn’t have a very good passing offense. The Cowboys are weaker against the run, but the Vikings have been much better throwing the ball this season.
Cowboys At Vikings Matchups To Watch For
Justin Jefferson Vs. Cowboys DBs
Jefferson just single-handedly took over with his team on the ropes against the Bills, going for 193 yards and a touchdown, including the catch of the year. The Cowboys have an ace corner in Trevon Diggs, one who has gotten burned his fair share of times but also made some big plays. A key subplot will be how often these two match up. Dallas normally ranks among the league leaders in zone but tried a heavy dose of man coverage against the Packers. On the season, Diggs shadows an opposing receiver around half of the time. How (if?) he matches up with Jefferson could swing the outcome.
Dalvin Cook Vs. Cowboys Run D
While the advanced metrics give Dallas passing grades for the run defense, the raw numbers are a bit ugly on the season, as one can see above. Minnesota brings a premium run-blocking unit to the table, one PFF rates second only to the Browns‘ road-grading group. Given Kirk Cousins’ struggles under pressure and the nature of the Dallas pass rush, it seems hard to imagine putting the game on the shoulders of this passing offense will end well for the Vikings.
Dak Prescott Vs. Vikings Defensive Pressure
Another QB whose play falls off quite a bit under pressure, Dak Prescott looked pretty rough against an injured Green Bay pass rush last week. The Vikings have a very beatable group of corners, but the Cowboys line isn’t what it once was, meaning Prescott will have to get some work done in less than pristine conditions. Minnesota’s pass rush has been solid as Za’Darius Smith and Danielle Hunter have stayed healthy. If Prescott can’t navigate the rush, he won’t have time to exploit this weak coverage group.
The Vikings have walked on water all year, continually winning close games and have the breaks go their way, such as Josh Allen fumbling when he simply needed to fall down inbounds to end the game. One might expect to find big value fading a team like this, but the market remains skeptical with the Cowboys installed as road favorites even off a disappointing loss. The Vikings do sit on a nice teaser number, but the total is a bit high, on the border for such a play. If you lean to the under, that might be one way to attack this one. Otherwise, looks for player props in some of the exploitable matchups, or sell some points with Dallas if you believe the Vikings are finally primed for a fall.
Best of luck betting on the Cowboys Vikings spread and other odds.
