Cardinals vs Cowboys NFL betting preview

The Dallas Cowboys are off to a disappointing start to the 2020 NFL season, as they are 2-3 straight up and 0-5 against the spread. After losing quarterback Dak Prescott to a season-ending ankle injury last Sunday against the New York Giants, the Cowboys will try to turn things around without their best offensive weapon. They get a tough test this Monday night as they host the Arizona Cardinals, who are 3-2 on the board and against the spread.

Prescott was leading the NFL in passing yards (1,856), passing completions (151), and passing attempts (222) at the time of his injury. He will be replaced by Andy Dalton, an experienced quarterback who started 133 games in his nine seasons with the Cincinnati Bengals. While the offense should continue to play well with Dalton under center, the Dallas defense remains a huge concern. The Cowboys rank dead last in the NFL in scoring defense, allowing 36 points per game.

The Arizona Cardinals acquired quarterback Kyler Murray with the first overall pick in the 2019 NFL Draft after going 3-13 for the NFL’s worst record in 2018. Murray led the team to a 5-10-1 record (9-5-2 ATS) last season and now has the Cardinals off to a respectable start in 2020. The second-year quarterback is averaging 319 passing yards and 59.2 rushing yards per game and leads all NFL quarterbacks with five rushing touchdowns this season.

The over/under total in this matchup is set at 55 points as NFL sportsbooks anticipate an offensive shootout between these two teams. There’s no question that the Murray and the Cardinals should carve up this Dallas defense, but will Dalton and the Cowboys do the same? While they should score their fair share of points, Arizona does have a solid defensive unit this season that ranks fifth in the NFL in points allowed at only 20.4 per game.

Dallas’s high-powered offense is likely to score more than 20 points. But in a battle between two strong offenses, Arizona’s clear edge on defense should be the difference. The Cardinals won’t totally contain the Cowboys, but they are more likely to come up with a key stop or two at some point in this game to eventually pull away on the scoreboard.
