Both teams have taken advantage of weaker opponents but struggled in bigger games against tougher opponents. Something has to give in Week 10.Here’s everything to know about betting on Cowboys vs. Vikings in Week 10, including updated odds, trends and our expert’s prediction for “Sunday Night Football.”MORE: Get the latest NFL odds & betting advice at Sportsbook ReviewCowboys vs. Vikings odds for ‘Sunday Night Football’Spread: Cowboys by 3Point total: 48Odds: Vikings +110, Cowboys -120The Cowboys have been a basic home-field advantage favorite since they beat the Giants in Week 9. The Vikings lost late on the road to the Chiefs. The point total is a little less than what the Cowboys (28 points) and Vikings (26 points) have scored combined on average per game (54 points).Cowboys vs. Vikings all-time seriesThe Cowboys lead the series 16-14. They have won the previous two meetings (in 2013 and ’16) and three of the past five. Before that stretch, the Vikings took the lead with a five-game winning streak. The last three games have been decided by a total of nine points.Three trends to know— 55 percent of spread bettors like the Cowboys to cover. 64 percent of moneyline bettors like the Vikings to win outright.— The Vikings have failed to cover in their past two games. They have covered in all but one of their wins and failed to beat the spread in all three losses.— The Cowboys have been favored in every game they have played. They have won and covered in back-to-back games after losing three straight games.Three things to watchStefon Diggs vs. Byron JonesThe Vikings couldn’t get Diggs going with his speed and quickness for big plays with fellow top wide receiver Adam Thielen getting hurt again, costing them against the Chiefs. With Thielen still hamstrung and ruled out for the Cowboys, Diggs (6-0, 191) needs to win his battle with the Cowboys’ bigger cornerback (6-1, 200) to help Kirk Cousins.Xavier Rhodes and Trae Waynes vs. Amari Cooper and Michael GallupCooper is expected to play through his ankle and knee injuries. Gallup is playing through his knee injury, as Waynes is set to do so with his ankle injury. The Vikings’ cornerbacks, especially Rhodes, have struggled with better field-stretching wide receivers this season, the category that both Cooper and Gallup fit. Minnesota will have better success against Ezekiel Elliott and the power running game than against Dak Prescott and the downfield passing game.There’s also no Linval JosephThe Vikings are missing a big linchpin of their defense as their venerable tackle is sidelined with a knee injury. That will certainly help open up some running room for Elliott and therefore facilitate he play-action deep shots for Prescott The Cowboys (5-3) got a big win after their bye on Monday night. They will turn around and play the Vikings (6-3) on a short week on “Sunday Night Football” (8:20 p.m. ET, NBC). Dallas is looking to go up a full game and head-to-head tiebreaker on idle second-place Philadelphia in the NFC East. Minnesota, depending on what happens with Green Bay against Carolina, hopes to get closer to first place in the NFC North. Stat that mattersCousins isn’t a prime-time player, quite literally. He has a 6-13 record as a starter in night games. He’s thrown 16 interceptions and has been sacked 44 times in those 19 games. The passer rating of 99.9 is solid, but the results in critical moments haven’t been there.Cowboys vs. Vikings predictionThe Vikings’ defense is overrated overall and not well positioned to slow down the Cowboys’ balanced, explosive attack. The Cowboys have been smashing at home all season and their defense will turn it up a few notches with the emotions of playing in another nationally televised game. All signs point to a comfortable Dallas rout.Cowboys 31, Vikings 20
