5 units on Game Total UNDER PICK (risk 5 to return 5) RESULT: LOSS
The Dallas Cowboys have come to life after the firing Wade Phillips. The offense has topped the 30 point mark in each of the last two, both wins. The defense has played markedly better too. After allowing 35.8 ppg in Phillips' last five games, they have allowed 19.5 ppg in their last two games. The Saints offense has also produced 30+ in each of their last two games, but unlike a year ago, it hasn't been the offense that is the headliner for the Saints. Their offense has in fact been mediocre, ranked in the middle of the league in points per game. The Saints held just two teams to less than 10 points a year ago. Through ten games this season, they have already accomplished the feat three times. The Saints have allowed a total of 58 points in their last five games (a very stingy 11.6 per game). That's good enough to rank them #4 in the league in points allowed. The Saints are 8-1 UNDER since last season following a game in which they allowed 400+ yards. Dallas is 8-2 to the UNDER after allowing less than 90 rushing yards in their last game. I like the UNDER here.
