Cowboys Bengals Key Injuries
CowboysCowboys G/T Zack Martin was placed on the injured reserve list earlier in the week with a calf injury, which could ultimately end his season. Martin suffered the injury early in Dallas’ Thanksgiving Day loss to Washington. It also held him out of last week’s loss to Baltimore. If Cameron Erving is healthy, he is dealing with a knee injury, he will be the next man up behind Martin. If Erving is out, Terence Steele or Brandon Knight will be in the lineup. The Cowboys are a long way away from the Tyron Smith-led line that has been dominant in recent years.
BengalsBengals QB Brandon Allen is dealing with a chest injury suffered in last week’s loss to the Dolphins. If Allen is forced to miss Sunday’s game with the Cowboys, Ryan Finley would draw the start.
Cowboys Bengals Players to WatchCowboys WR Michael Gallup is coming off of his best game since the Dak Prescott injury in last week’s loss to the Ravens. He put up a 7/86/1 line on 11 targets. It was Gallup’s highest yardage total and his first touchdown since Week 3 against Seattle. Gallup has shown that he has a rapport with Andy Dalton. In five games with Dalton starting, Gallup has had 5+ targets in four of them and 6+ in three. In his past two games, however, Gallup has had 8+ targets, 6+ receptions, and 41+ yards. Gallup will get a Bengals defense allowing the eighth-most passing yards per game (257.3). This is also a revenge game for Dalton, which could be the most exciting storyline to come out of this game. Don’t worry folks, 2020 will be over soon. Bengals RB Gio Bernard has been non-existent since the Joe Burrow injury. While Bernard played well preceding Cincinnati’s Week 9 bye, he has yet to show up since. Bernard has totaled fewer than 55 yards without a touchdown in each of his past four games. Bernard had a three-game scoring streak before the bye. If the Bengals are going to have a shot, Bernard must get going facing a Cowboys defense surrendering the most rushing yards per game (167.8). This way, whether it is Brandon Allen or Ryan Finley under center, they will have a much easier time finding holes in Dallas’ swiss cheese defense.
Cowboys Bengals Weather ReportThe weather at Paul Brown Stadium calls for an overcast afternoon at the time of kickoff with a 5% chance of precipitation. The temperature is set at 40 degrees Fahrenheit with 7 mph winds blowing West-NorthWest.
Cowboys at Bengals Picks for NFL Bets
BEST BET: Cowboys (-191)This is a game even the 2020 Cowboys should win. … Right? For the first time since Dak Prescott’s injury, the Cowboys have the edge in the quarterback department. However, Dallas’ woes are not all on Andy Dalton, Ben DiNucci, or Garrett Gilbert. The Cowboys were bad with Prescott under center, mostly because of their defense and their offensive line injury woes. Obviously, it carried over following the loss of their presumed franchise quarterback — that can change this offseason. In a Dalton revenge game facing a backup quarterback on Cincy’s end, one would expect Dallas to come out and find a victory. Talent-to-talent, the Cowboys have the edge even with their injury issues. While Dallas’ defense is bad, the Bengals’ defense is not much better. They are allowing the fourth-most rushing yards per game (134.5). If Ezekiel Elliott can’t get going in this one, he has real issues as does the Cowboys. The Cowboys are 2-6 straight up in their past eight games, losers of two straight. The Bengals are 1-7 SU in their past eight games, losers of four straight.

CONSIDER: Bengals +3.5 (-110)While I like the Cowboys to win, I don’t think they will cover the 3.5-point spread. This will be a close one. It’s not like this is your normal Cowboys team that can hang points. Scoring has been a struggle, and even against the Bengals, it will be. The Bengals’ defense has also given up fewer than 20 points in each of their past three games, all losses. The Bengals are 6-4 against the spread in their past 10 games and 4-3 in their past seven, failing to cover last week. The Cowboys are 2-2 ATS in their past four games, failing to cover in two straight.
PASS: Under 42.5 (-110)I am passing on the Total going in either direction in this game. I don’t trust it either way. We could see a defensive struggle because both offenses are that bad. Or, we could see everything click offensively because both defenses are horrendous. If I had to choose one, it would be the Under, but again, I have zero trust. The Over is 3-4 in the Cowboys’ past seven games, hitting in each of their past three. The Over is 3-3-1 in the Bengals’ past seven games, failing to hit in each of their past four, including a push. Anthony Cervino is 41-35-1 on his NFL Best Bets in 2020.
