After a forgettable season last year, nobody expected the Saints to march unopposed to the top of the NFC South and everyone predicted the Cowboys to be, well, the Cowboys. Few had them them begged to have a winning record this deep into the season, but Dallas (5-4) is atop the NFC East and is looking hungry.
The Saints opened as 6.5 point betting favorites and have settled at a one touchdown favorite. Betting on a 7 point spread can be tricky, so check out the Sunday Night Football betting trends for the Dallas Cowboys at New Orleans Saints game before you place your bets:
