Aside from a few Vegas books, the Dallas Cowboys vs. Denver Broncos odds remained a firm Cowboys -3 heading into Friday morning. This was pretty odd in and of itself since the Broncos are 3-0 and playing at home. Some Vegas books had the line at -2 ½ and we could see the line drift to this number among a few online sportsbooks by game time.
And the betting public is now all over Dallas at an 80 percent clip. Initially the action was 60/40 in Dallas' favor. 70 percent of the money line action is going Denver's way. That would pay $13 for every $10 bet if the Broncos win outright, and they probably can.
The Broncos have won the past three meetings and the overall series is tied at five, including the playoffs.
Heading into this season, the biggest concern with Denver was its defense (or what many believed to be a lack thereof).
Surprise! The Broncos have played phenomenal defense this season and rank first in the league. That said, they have faced the league's worst two offenses the past two weeks and played against Cincinnati's 24th-ranked unit in Week 1. The challenge gets tougher this Sunday against the Cowboys' third-ranked offense.
The Cowboys have won 8 of their last 11 games against AFC teams.
Denver has beaten the Cowboys both times they played one another this decade, and both times on the road.
The Cowboys are 1-6 ATS in their last 7 games after allowing less than 15 points in their previous game.
The Broncos are 6-1-1 ATS in their last 8 games as a home underdog.
Denver is 7-3-1 ATS in their last 11 games following a SU win of more than 14 points.
The Broncos are 6-17-1 ATS in their last 24 games following a S.U. win.
Denver thus far is one of the biggest surprises in the NFL. The Cowboys come into Denver with a 2-1 record.
