The Dallas Cowboys have a date with the Los Angeles Rams in the Divisional Round of the playoffs following their impressive win against the Seahawks in the Wild Card round. The Rams have stars all over the field while Dallas is getting hot at the right time, winning eight of its last nine games. With so much talent on both sides, you have to know which players and which teams to place your bets behind. Here are the most interesting prop bets for the Cowboys matchup against the Rams.
3. Money Line/Total Points Parlay- Rams to Win and Over 48.5 Points (+150)
Dak Prescott may have gotten his first postseason win this past weekend, but winning at home and winning in Los Angeles are two separate things. The Rams are 7-1 at home this season while the Cowboys are just 3-5 on the road. Dallas is heating up offensively and the Rams are giving up 5.1 yards per rushing attempt, which could mean a lot of points for the Cowboys. The Rams have never had a problem scoring as this one could turn into a shoot out.
2. Los Angeles Rams by 1-13 (+140)
As great as the Rams have been, it's hard to expect them to beat Dallas by two touchdowns. Prescott has six touchdowns compared to one pick in his last three games, showing he is more than capable of holding onto the ball. With Dallas also featuring one of the better defenses left in the postseason, it's hard to imagine this turning into a blowout.
1. Dallas Cowboys +7.5/ Over 48.5 points +230
With eight wins in their last nine games, the Cowboys are not a team that's undeserving of the spot they're currently in. They only lost by eight points or more four times this season and many of those losses came before their current run. The Rams may walk away with a win, but that many points is hard to pass up.
