The Dallas Cowboys (12-5) season was hanging on by a thread and offensive coordinator Kellen Moore dialed up a quarterback draw. One of the most controversial calls of the season, time expired before the Cowboys could get set again. Moore, a young coaching star, had been a popular candidate for vacant head coaching positions. His status is one to monitor this offseason. As for the rest of the team, Dak Prescott struggled in his return from injury and Ezekiel Elliott had one of his least efficient years of his career. On the good side, Dallas is stacked with young talent like Micah Parsons, Trevon Diggs, and CeeDee Lamb.

Cowboys 2021 recap
Record: 12-5, First in NFC East. Lost Wild Card round to 49ers
Record ATS: 13-4
Over/under record: 8-9
The excitement surrounding Dak Prescott’s return from injury was warranted. Dallas saw what happened to their team without a star quarterback in 2020. However, Prescott’s production lagged behind expectations, as did his teammate’s– Ezekiel Elliott. Defensively, the Cowboys fielded a pair of young superstars: corner Trevon Diggs and linebacker Micah Parsons who both were named All Pros. There’s no question that the Cowboys have some of the most talent in the NFL, but injuries to the offensive line and questionable coaching decisions caused them to be a one-and-done playoff exit.

Cowboys prop bets
Prop bets are based on individual performance, typically surrounding players. Even once Dak Prescott went down, the Cowboys had a host of offensive weapons that were popular targets of prop bets. For example, Amari Cooper’s projected receiving total in the Cowboys’ Week 4 matchup with the Cleveland Browns was 89.5 yards. That game, Cooper went off for a season-high 134 yards, giving those who bet the over on his receiving total the win.

How to bet on the Dallas Cowboys
The moneyline is the simplest of bets, decided by the straight-up winner and loser of each game. Consider the following example:
- Cowboys +220
- Buccaneers -155
The Cowboys are considered underdogs in this matchup (indicated by +220), paying out $320 total for a $100 bet ($220 in winnings). The Buccaneers are the underdog in this matchup, requiring a $155 bet to win $100 (plus the initial bet back). How much either team wins or loses by does not matter in moneyline betting, the payout remains the same.
Betting on the point spread is determinant on how many points a team wins or loses by. Take the following example:
- Cowboys -3.5 (-110)
- Chargers +3.5 (-110)
In this example, Dallas is favored by 3.5 points, indicated by “-3.5.” If the Cowboys win the game 28-24, the Cowboys (-3.5) win the bet and would have a total payout of $19.09 on a $10 bet ($9.09 in profit). If the Chargers keep the game within four and lose 42-39, the Chargers (+3.5) would win, and the payout would be the same as listed above.
Point total (over/under)
The point total refers to the over/under line set by books. This number projects the total number of points scored in a game and, like prop betting, is bet whether one thinks the score will go over or under the set point total. For example, Dallas’ Week 8 matchup with the Eagles had a projected point total of 46.5 points. The Cowboys lost the game 23-9, resulting in just 34 total points scored. Those who bet under the point total in that game came away with a win.
Typically, games involving the Cowboys and a competent offense resulted in the league’s highest point totals on the season. Games against the Seahawks and Browns had point totals over 50 while games against the Giants had point totals under 45. The range of Dallas’ over/under projections were some of the most varied in the NFL in 2020.
In-play and live betting
Sometimes, the most thrilling and rewarding bets are bets made while games are being played. These are referred to as live bets or in-play bets. Odds are ever-changing during games, which would prove to be fruitful for sharp and prepared bettors. For example, if the Cowboys (-225) were heavily favored against the Raiders (+190) before kickoff, a payout on a $10 bet on the Cowboys to win would win just $4.44.
However, say the Cowboys fell to a big 21-3 deficit in the first half despite controlling the overall game (due to a costly turnover or special teams gaffe). Odds may swing in favor of the Raiders, who may be a -110 favorite at halftime. Taking the Cowboys to come back and win the game could present plus-odds (say, +130). Should a bettor take Dallas (+130) at halftime and the Cowboys pull off the comeback, winners would win $13 instead of $4.44 (plus the initial $10 bet).
This could also be an effective way to “hedge” your bet; say a bettor took the Raiders (+190) in that game, but Dallas jumps out to a 14-0 first quarter lead and is controlling the overall feel of the game, bettors could hedge by throwing some money down on Dallas (-270) to return some of the inevitably-lost bet.
Parlays and teasers
You can always string bets together in the form of parlays or teasers. Usually during busy Sundays, bettors can parlay several teams to win or cover against the spread and if all bets are successful, the payouts are multiplied. Teasers function similarly, except they allow bettors to move each point spread to a more favorable line in exchange for diminished odds.
