Pittsburgh Steelers, currently in imperious form having not lost a game yet in 2020, travel to face struggling Dallas Cowboys this Sunday. The Steelers head to the AT&T stadium having beaten divisional rivals Baltimore Ravens last time out. The Cowboys struggled to make an impact in offense in their last game, a defeat at Philadelphia Eagles, and may well change their quarterback for Sunday. Read on to see where we think the best betting value can be found, as the Steelers look to defend their 100% record this season.
Cowboys have quarterback woes
Although the overall all-time record between the teams is just 17-15 in favor of Dallas, the Cowboys are far from the force that they once were. Rookie QB Ben DiNucci is likely to be sidelined this weekend after a poor performance against the Eagles last weekend. Head coach Mike McCarthy has stated that Garrett Gilbert or Cooper Rush will be stepping in at QB on Sunday, as the Cowboys look for more experienced leadership on offense. Whoever plays will be their fourth different starting QB of the season, a situation which never promises stability.
The Steelers look set to be able to call on defensive end Cameron Heyward, who was back at practice this week after picking up an injury in last Sundays game against the Ravens. If the Steelers manage to win their eighth game in a row it would set a new franchise record for the start of a season.
The Cowboys are currently sitting third in the NFC East, just a place above the New York Giants. The Steelers top the AFC North with their impressive 7-0 record. We expect them to maintain that 100% record on Sunday with an emphatic win over the struggling Texan franchise.
Our Pick: Pittsburgh to score over 27.5 points
We think that Pittsburgh will win this game by a pretty large margin. That is why our tip for the game is that the Steelers will score more than 27.5 points. The odds from 888Sport are -106 for this, so bettors will need to bet big to make a significant profit. But we just cannot see the Cowboys being able to get anywhere near the imperious Steelers this Sunday. The Cowboys defense has not played well since week one of the season, and we expect that pattern to continue this weekend.
