Tennessee Titans v Dallas Cowboys NFL betting preview | 12/29/22

NFL football tips

The NFL’s week 16 slate is in the books and week 17 will kick off with a fascinating Thursday Night contest where the 7-7 Tennessee Titans will host the 11-4 Dallas Cowboys. There are only two games remaining for every team and both of these teams are in the playoff hunt. To put it plainly, these games are massively important and they will go a long way toward shaping the playoff picture. Here are our best picks for this Thursday Night battle.

Tennessee Titans vs Dallas Cowboys betting preview

The Titans are coming off of their worst loss of the season and the Cowboys, well they are coming off the best win of their season. Both teams are trending in the opposite direction and that gives the Titans all the value. While they likely won’t win this game with their backup QB, they can still play the Cowboys close and at home, they should have more success than normal. The Cowboys are a good team but a once staunch defense has given up 34-plus points in two straight games. The Titans should be able to score with relative ease in this contest and use their elite rush defense to limit the Cowboy’s offense. The Titans have been floundering in recent weeks but they are well coached and should be able to keep this game closer than the line suggests.

Over 41.5 Points

Usually, on Thursday Night Football, betting the over is a bad idea. Due to the lack of rest, players tend to be sloppy and the games simply aren’t as entertaining. That being said, for this game, the Cowboys have been horrible defensively in recent weeks and it appears like the books haven’t adjusted. While Dallas was great in the early part of the season, their recent defensive performances cannot be forgotten and the Titans should be able to capitalize on that. Also, the Titans have an iffy defense as well that will allow Dallas to score. While Tennessee are great against the run, they have given up the second-most passing yards to opposing offenses. Simply put, Dallas should be able to score through the air and they will struggle to bottle up the Titans’ rushing attack. This game should feature plenty of points and the over is the play this Thursday Night.

Derrick Henry Anytime Touchdown Scorer

Derrick Henry is the monstrous running back for the Tennessee Titans and he is in line for a big game. Like every week, the Titans will lean on him but considering the Dallas defensive decline, he should find the endzone. Henry has scored in three straight games and has 13 touchdowns this season. When the Titans are moving the ball, it’s usually due to Derrick Henry and because we think Tennessee will play the Cowboys close, this is a great value bet.

Dak Prescott Over .5 Interceptions

Dak Prescott is the quarterback for the Dallas Cowboys and while he has been playing at a high level, he has been making some dumb throws as of late. Dak has thrown an interception in five straight games and has thrown 11 picks in his last eight games. While the Titan’s pass defense is awful, Dak has been throwing too many picks to not bet on this prop. At -115 with the top betting sites, this is great value and the Titans have enough ballhawks to capitalize on a bad throw. This is our favorite bet on the board for this game and Dak should throw an interception in his sixth consecutive contest.
