Dallas Cowboys Odds to Win 2017 NFC East, 2018 NFC Championship, Super Bowl 52

The Dallas Cowboys had +150 odds of winning the NFC East, 5/1 odds of winning the NFC Conference Championship and 9/1 odds of winning Super Bowl 52. 

According to ESPN.com’s Bill Barnwell, the Cowboys did nothing spectacular during the off season while managing to “pocket a few compensatory selections”.

The Cowboys did not consummate their long-standing interest in running back Adrian Peterson, instead allowing the would-be backup to Ezekiel Elliott to head farther south to New Orleans. They re-signed Terrance Williams and Jason Witten in lieu of finding a sexier second weapon in the passing game for quarterback Dak Prescott. They operated like a team in sound shape, which they are.

Additionally, they found help for their pass rush with the drafting of Taco Charlton out of Michigan with the 28th selection.  Their three sacks of the Packers Aaron Rodgers in that 34-31 loss came, not from the offense, but from the defense.

The Cowboys did fail to draft anyone on the offensive line, however.

The Cowboys possessed the deepest offensive line in football last season, but that depth took a major hit this offseason, when right tackle Doug Free retired and guard Ronald Leary left for the Broncos in free agency.

The Cowboys were suffering some injuries heading into the new season with Tyrone Crawford carted off in practice with an ankle injury this week.

Dallas total regular season wins betting odds were taken OFF THE BOARD.
