Best Cowboys Betting Lines 2022
Another season, another disappointing finish for the Dallas Cowboys, who made another painful playoff exit as time ran out on Dak Prescott and Co. against the San Francisco 49ers on Wild Card Weekend.
Heading into the 2022 NFL Draft, Dallas has a glaring need at wide receiver after the offseason departures of Amari Cooper and Cedrick Wilson. The Cowboys also have to plug some holes on the offensive and defensive fronts after losing a pair of starters on the O-line and defensive end Randy Gregory.
Still, Dallas is favored to defend its NFC East title, something that no team in the division has done since the Eagles won their fourth straight title in 2004. Will the Cowboys be able to break that trend or will Dallas take a step back in 2022?

Cowboys Super Bowl 57 Odds
Cowboys To Win Super Bowl (+1800)
The Cowboys haven’t even reached the Super Bowl since winning it all in 1995. I know Jerry Jones will do anything to win, but he’ll have to smash this draft to give his team a chance.

Cowboys NFC Championship Odds
Cowboys To Win NFC Championship (+750)
The Cowboys have the fifth-best odds to win the NFC, which is the considerably weaker of the two conferences. Even still, this offensive line should regress some and Dak Prescott has fewer weapons to work with, including an aging Ezekiel Elliott.
Reaching the Super Bowl is a stretch.
Cowboys NFC East Winner Odds
Cowboys to Win NFC East Championship (-130)
This is a sucker’s bet. The NFC East hasn’t seen a repeat division champion in nearly 20 years, so what makes you think the Cowboys can change that?
The Eagles were a playoff team last year, the Giants should take a step forward, and Washington could be interesting with Carson Wentz. Don’t lay the juice here.
Cowboys Make Playoffs Odds
Cowboys to Make Playoffs (-280)
Even though I expect the Cowboys to regress, they should still make the playoffs. This could be a parlay piece, but don’t lock up your money for eight months on a -280 wager.
Cowboys Win Total Bets 2022
Cowboys: UNDER 10.5 Wins (-155)
The Cowboys won 12 games last season, but this roster looks worse than the 2021 version and other teams in the division are catching up. Add in the difficulty of a first-place schedule and 11-6 becomes a tall task in our NFL bet of the day.
Cowboys Prop Bets 2022
CeeDee Lamb: Lead NFL in Receiving Yards (+1400)
With Cooper gone and Michael Gallup (ACL) uncertain for Week 1, Lamb and TE Dalton Schultz are Prescott’s top targets. If OC Kellen Moore can tap into more creative ways to get Lamb into space and give him more separation, the Oklahoma alum could find himself among the league leaders in targets.
Micah Parsons: Defensive Player of the Year (+1000)
Parsons’ dominant rookie year found him hyped as one of the best multi-layered defenders of the 2021 season. The Penn State alum’s pass rush, field-spanning tackle range, and disruption of the run game puts him among the most complete linebackers in the game.
Dan Quinn‘s defensive scheme calls for plenty of aggression, which could put Parsons in line for more takeaways to bolster his resume. Though another double-digit-sack season would help his cause.
How to Bet Cowboys Moneylines
An NFL moneyline ticket is the most straightforward football bet: All you have to do is pick the team that you think is going to win a given game, and if they do, you win your bet.
Since all the team has to do is win, you will see the odds for NFL moneylines fluctuate violently based each team’s implied probability of winning (or losing) that game. A favorite will be identified by a minus symbol (-200). An underdog is represented by a plus symbol (+200).
If the Cowboys are a (-200) favorite, you have to bet $20 to win $10. If they’re a (+200) underdog, you can win $20 off a $10 bet.

How to Bet Cowboys Spreads
Spread betting is the most popular way to bet on an NFL game, as it presents two evenly priced options, regardless of the talent disparity between two teams. The spread is set by sportsbook traders and establishes the number of points the favorite is expected to win by against the underdog.
If the Cowboys are 3-point favorites over the Eagles, the spread would look something like this: Cowboys -3 (-110) vs Eagles +3 (-110).
In this scenario, the Cowboys would have to win by more than a field goal to cash your bet. If they win exactly by three points, your bet is a push and you would receive your initial stake back.

How to Bet Cowboys Over/Unders
If you don’t have a read on the Cowboys spread or moneyline, you can still get involved by betting on the total number of points scored.
Oddsmakers will set the line for how many total points they expect to be scored. Then, you can bet on either the Over or the Under.
If you have faith in the Cowboys offense and foresee a lot of points being scored, then you’ll want to take the Over. If you think it will be more of a defensive game, then take the Under.
