In the second MNF game of Week 6, the Dallas Cowboys will host the Arizona Cardinals in their first contest following the loss of franchise quarterback Dak Prescott.
Will the Cowboys win another game with Andy Dalton at QB and stay on top of the NFC East or will the Cardinals and Kyler Murray run all over this Dallas defense? Kickoff inside AT&T stadium is at 8:15PM ET.
Cardinals vs Cowboys Live Odds and Betting History
These two franchises have played against each other 80 times. Dallas has a commanding lead in the all-time series with a record of 56-32-1. However, it’s been the Cardinals that have won four of the last five head to head matchups. Dallas is 32-11 all-time at home against Arizona.
The Arizona Cardinals (3-2) snapped a two game losing streak by beating the hapless Jets last weekend. Arizona rebounded from a poor performance in Week 4 vs the Panthers to dominate the Jets on both sides of the ball. Can Arizona’s passing attack take advantage of this terrible Dallas secondary?
The Dallas Cowboys (2-3) had an emotional win over the Giants last weekend as they lost QB Dak Prescott for the season with a gruesome broken lower leg. Can the Cowboys rely on backup QB Andy Dalton to lead the team to victory or will they fall short of improving to .500?

Free MNF Sports Bet and Game Prediction: Cardinals Moneyline (-135)
The Dak Prescott injury was an emotional scene. As someone who has suffered a similar injury in life, it was sad to see Dak being carted off the field. The support from both teams and former head coach Jason Garrett, the current Giants offensive coordinator, was a nice tribute to a popular player.
Andy Dalton came in to replace the injured Prescott and helped lead the Cowboys to a victory over the Giants. They got back to running the ball with Ezekiel Elliott and the defense played inspired. Dallas was able to kick a FG at the end of the game to pull out the victory.
Unfortunately, I don’t see the Cowboys coming away with the win this week. They will be facing an Arizona football team with the best receiver in the league – DeAndre Hopkins. He will chew up this Cowboys secondary and allow his fellow receivers to be wide open.
Furthermore, I expect Dallas to drop extra defenders in coverage which should give the Cardinals rushing game more room to run inside the box especially with QB Kyler Murray scrambling to pick up first downs.
Dallas has the worst scoring defense in the league as they’re allowing 36ppg. Furthermore, they’re giving up 413.2 total ypg including 155.8 rushing ypg. The Cardinals are averaging 400.8 total ypg and 141 rushing ypg. Look for Murray to run all over this Dallas front seven.
Despite their two losses, Arizona is only allowing 20.4 ppg and 368.8 total ypg. They will play good enough defense to hold Dallas from scoring more than 24 points. I expect the Cardinals to put up close to 30 points and come away with the big win in “Big D.”
Instead of going with Arizona covering the spread, let’s play it safe and take their moneyline. Now, we don’t have to worry about them winning by a FG or more, but they just have to win.
Arizona’s inconsistency this season does give me a little bit of concern. With that said, their passing attack will devour this terrible Dallas defense and I expect Kyler Murray to have one of his best performances of the season.
In a battle of QBs, I will take Murray to outperform Andy Dalton and for the Cardinals to come away with the win on Monday Night Football.
