Week 13 in NFL Football kicks off Thursday night when the red hot Dallas Cowboys host the even more hot New Orleans Saints. The Saints are a perfect 5-0 on the road, and the Cowboys are 4-1 at home this year.
New Orleans Saints are 7.5 point favorites, and the over/under is 53 points. Both teams last played, and won, and scored 31 points last week on Thanksgiving, so they will just have the regular one week off in between games.
Dallas Cowboys are a perfect 5-0 against the spread this year, so it makes sense to take them at home riding a 3 game winning streak getting 7.5 points, but straight up they are +300. But the thing is, will the Saints really go 15-1? Probably not! They are currently ranked 1st in the Power Rankings, but are projected to win 13.6 games. So if they go 13-3 lets say, I can see two more losses being against Dallas this week and maybe Carolina in week 15. +300 is a pretty nice pay day.
There is no major injuries to report, everyone on both sides is listed as questionable. The Saints are putting up 37 points per game compared to Dallas' 21, but in 2 of the 3 last wins the Cowboys have scored 31 and 27, and they will probably score again in that range to keep pace with the Saints' high flying offense, so I think this prime time game will go over the 53 points. Kickoff is Thursday night at 8:20 ET from Dallas
