The Dallas Cowboys have a three-game winning streak on the line when they host the Seattle Seahawks on Thursday night at AT&T Stadium. Game time for this NFC matchup is slated for 8:15 p.m. ET.
Dallas has won five consecutive home matchups, including a 45-10 Thanksgiving Day beating over the Washington Commanders. Meanwhile, Seattle hopes to end a two-game losing streak, including a 31-13 Turkey day home loss to the San Francisco 49ers.

Seahawks vs. Cowboys Betting Odds Analysis
NOTE: Sports betting in Texas is still prohibited. These odds and tips are for entertainment purposes only.
Thursday’s Seahawks vs. Cowboys odds have moved quite a bit and will likely continue to bounce around right up until kickoff.
Dallas opened at -270 on the moneyline, but that number has risen to -450 at most shops. A wager on the Cowboys to win this game will cost you $450 to win $100. That’s big juice to pay for and not something that I am interested in, as the value is gone.
Dallas opened across the board at -6 (-110), and that number has jumped to Dallas -9.0 (-110) at some of the US bookmakers, while others like BetMGM and DraftKings offer Dallas -9.5 (-110).
The oddsmakers opened the total at 45.5 (-110), but it is now 46.5 (-110) in some shops, with a US consensus of 46 (-110).
Seahawks vs. Cowboys Best Bet
I have every reason to believe that playing the Cowboys on the moneyline is tough because risking $425 at ESPN Bet to win $100 isn’t a smart idea. They’ll likely win, but risking over four units to win one unit just doesn’t make sense, and there are better wagers to make for Thursday.
Dallas is -9.0 (-105) at FanDuel, and we’re taking them to cover the spread. They are 4-1-0 ATS at home, 5-0 straight up, and have a home-winning margin of +29 through their first five home games.
Conversely, Seattle is 2-3-0 straight-up but is 3-2-0 ATS this season as the away side. That may cover the spread against many NFL teams, but Dallas allows the fourth-fewest points in the game at home with a huge home-winning margin while allowing a dozen points per game at AT&T Stadium.
Seattle allows 21 points per game as the away team and 3-2-0 ATS as the away team. The Seahawks offense has managed to score just 29 points over their past two and meet the NFL’s third-best defense.
Finally, Seattle is a decent team that’s struggling to score points. They’ve also allowed 48 points over their last two and have failed to cover the spread in four of their previous five matchups. Hold your nose, lay the points, and take Dallas to cover Thursday night’s spread.
My Best Bet: Dallas Cowboys -9.0 (-105) at FanDuel.
