The Dallas Cowboys play host to the Houston Texans in a battle of surprising 3-1 squads. Little was expected this season from a Cowboys team that finished a mediocre 8-8 and out of the playoffs in 2013. Indeed, coach Jason Garrett was pegged as the preseason NFL props betting favorite to be the first NFL coach fired this season.
But Dallas has impressed, twice posting SU wins as underdogs including last Sunday’s 38-17 thrashing of nemesis New Orleans. The Cowboys face a Houston squad that has quickly bounced back from the 14-game losing streak that scarred their 2013 campaign. The defensive-minded Texans are 4-1 ATS in their last five with the UNDER going 5-2 in their last seven.
