Odds/Point Spread: Seattle Seahawks -7, Total Odds: 41

Seattle’s replacement players did a fantastic job of cleaning up in the second half against the Vikings. In the end, the squad won against Minnesota. Despite the poor third-down conversion percentage (4-of-11) and the nine egregious penalties, the exhibition season was a strong start overall. Dallas’ performance is also erratic; despite amassing 340 offensive yards, the Cowboys allowed the Jaguars to gain 414. Dallas’ 5-of-15 third-down conversion rate and three turnovers are also not great. Even yet, Seattle should have a strong chance of winning because the game will usually be competitive.

Dallas Cowboys vs Seattle Seahawks Betting Trends

Dallas Cowboys vs Seattle Seahawks: The Cowboys are opting to rest their starting players, while the Seahawks have shifted their practice focus toward their starters, indicating that they will likely see playing time in the upcoming preseason finale. Consequently, the Cowboys’ lineup will predominantly consist of young players and individuals competing fiercely for a spot on the roster. In contrast, the Seahawks will kick off the game with their starting lineup on the field, at least in the initial stages.

The primary emphasis for this final game, particularly after Seattle’s starters are substituted, will be on maintaining the players’ health. While those striving for NFL positions among the roster’s lower ranks are engaged in their battles, the tempo of the game will inevitably decrease in the later stages. Although Seattle’s starters are not widely regarded as the cream of the crop in the league, the crucial factor will be the extent to which they can establish a lead before the playing field levels out.

Anticipate a narrowing of the score as the game progresses. Taking the COWBOYS +6.5 (-105) could be a strategic choice. In the context of the previous preseason matches, the Seahawks have concluded both games with a combined score of at least 38 points. In comparison, the Cowboys’ most recent game reached a total of 50 points, while their opening game totaled only 24 points. Opting for OVER 37.5 (-112) could be a suitable selection given these trends.
