- The Minnesota Vikings are 2.5-point favorites on the Dallas Cowboys for Sunday Night Football.

- Dak Prescott is questionable for Sunday Night Football.
MINNEAPOLIS – The Minnesota Vikings and Dallas Cowboys are squaring off in Week 8 of Sunday Night Football. Although the Cowboys are an undefeated 6-0 against the spread this season, the Vikings are slight 2.5-point favorites with Dak Prescott questionable.
Prescott is currently dealing with soreness in his calf. Being that he is coming off of a serious leg injury last season, the Cowboys could look to play it safe and keep him out.
Cowboys QB Dak Prescott (calf) was sore today after ramping up intensity in Thursday’s practice, coach Mike McCarthy said. On decision ahead about Sunday status: “It’s more than just one game. We’re obviously in our seventh game, so there is a ton of football left to play.”

Pros Betting On The Cowboys
The Cowboys odds have been favored in their last four games.
They have been clicking on both sides of the ball with the number one ranked offense in the league (34.2 ppg) as well as a top-5 run defense (86.2 yapg). Taking the Cowboys to cover the spread now even with Prescott questionable could turn out profitable.
If the Cowboys do decide that he can suit up for SNF, NFL sportsbooks are sure to shift the odds in their direction which makes betting on them as an underdog very enticing.
Pros Betting On The Vikings
Taking the Vikings odds just as early could also turn out as a favorable bet as well. Dak Prescott’s status for this game will affect Minnesota’s odds whether he is available to play or not.
If Prescott is ultimately ruled out, the Vikings 2.5-point spread is likely to get more expensive being that it would leave backup, Cooper Rush, to start for the Cowboys.
In reality, the Vikings will have an easier cover on 2.5 points rather than anything longer if and when Prescott is ruled out. This SNF matchup is scheduled for 8:20 p.m. EST and is broadcasted on NBC.
