The Steelers are 14-point favorites against the Cowboys

Updated: Nov 8, 2020



The Steelers are 7-0 and with another win, they'll surpass the 1978 Steelers' team for the best start to a season in franchise history at 8-0. They'll face a 2-6 Cowboys' team that has been hampered by injuries, no injury being bigger than losing quarterback Dak Prescott for the season in Week 5 with an ankle injury.


With Andy Dalton placed on the reserve/Covid-19 list and Ben DiNucci struggling in his first career start against the Eagles on Sunday, the Cowboys will now turn to Cooper Rush or Garrett Gilbert as their starting quarterback against the Steelers this week.


Due to the uncertainty at the quarterback position and the overall poor play by the Cowboys this season and the Steelers being unbeaten, Pittsburgh is currently listed as 14-point favorites against Dallas on Sunday, according to Oddshark.com.


The Steelers have not been a double-digit favorite on the road since losing to the Raiders, 24-21, on Dec. 9, 2018. The Steelers are 1-12 against the spread in that scenario going back to 1993. The Vegas line for the Steelers-Raiders game in 2018 was 10.5 points.


The over/under for Sunday's game is currently 41.5 points. The Cowboys are 0-8 against the spread in their last eight games and the Steelers are 5-0 against the spread in their last five games, per Oddsshark.com.
