Best Thursday Night Football bets: Cowboys-Saints

By VSiN Staff  (

Let's kick off a new week in the NFL with another Thursday Night Football game, this time between the Dallas Cowboys and New Orleans Saints.

We've got a market report on the game from South Point director Chris Andrews and a best bet from Adam Burke and Matt Youmans as Week 13 gets underway.

Dallas Cowboys (-4.5, 47.5) at New Orleans Saints

Market report from Chris Andrews: My opener of Dallas -5.5 was bet down to -5 on sharp action keyed by Cowboys’ COVID-19 news. I’ve been writing more business on the Cowboys than the Saints at 5, but most of the market has dropped to 4.5. I’ll wait to take more bets on the Saints before joining them. Little action yet on my opening total of 47.5. We probably would have seen a huge handle if both teams were playing well, but Dallas is 1-3 straight up and ATS its last four games, including outright losses as favorites to Denver and Las Vegas. New Orleans is 0-4 SU and 1-3 ATS during the same span. It’s still a marquee matchup that will be heavily bet.
