Are The Dallas Cowboys Super Bowl 56 Odds Being Overlooked?

  • The Dallas Cowboys are listed with +1400 odds to win the Super Bowl.
  • They are the seventh choice overall and fifth in the NFC.

DALLAS – The Dallas Cowboys are currently given the seventh-shortest odds to win the Super Bowl which leaves a lot of value on their name heading into the final month of the season.

What The Odds Look Like

Considering the Cowboys have more or less locked up the NFC East, their spot in the playoffs is all but confirmed. The problem with the Cowboys’ Super Bowl odds is that the NFC is looking much stronger than the AFC, giving the team a hard ride to the Super Bowl.

Super Bowl 56 Odds

  • Tampa Bay Buccaneers +450
  • Kansas City Chiefs +550
  • Green Bay Packers +650
  • New England Patriots +650
  • Los Angeles Rams +950
  • Arizona Cardinals +1000
  • Dallas Cowboys +1400
  • Buffalo Bills +1600

Online gambling sites list Dallas as the seventh choice on the board, but notably the fifth option in the NFC. The top six seeds in the conference are currently separated by just one game, showing that a lot of change before the season ends, but it doesn’t look as if Dallas will receive the first-round BYE in the postseason.

The Case For Dallas To Win Super Bowl 56

There aren’t many out there who would say the Cowboys deserve to be the Super Bowl favorites, but there is a case to be made that should be better than seventh on the odds board. Those NFL betting fans would likely look towards the team’s offense as the driving force behind a potential playoff run.

Dallas averages the second-most yards per game with 409.1 as they throw for the fourth-most yards (280.6) and run for the sixth-most yards (128.5) per game.

As the second-highest scoring offense in the NFL, they should be able to at least compete with most teams on any given day.

Why The Cowboys Won’t Win

Putting the probable tough schedule in the postseason to reach the playoffs aside, the Cowboys’ defense will likely be what lets the team down. Only one team with a winning record allows more yards per game as Dallas ranks 23rd with their 361.1 yards per game.

While the defense is worrisome, it also shows the potential of just how good the team could be if the defense improves to just be league average. With Dak Prescott, Ezekiel Elliott, Amari Cooper and CeeDee Lamb, the offense is going to be hard to stop regardless. The team just needs help from their defensive counterpart to truly become a Super Bowl contender.
