Cowboys End Losing Skid, Rebound on Odds to Win Super Bowl

What a difference one win has made for the Dallas Cowboys, who ended a seven-game losing streak last week with a 24-14 victory over Miami, lifting their Super Bowl 50 betting odds from a distant 66/1 to 25/1 at the sportsbooks.
Fresh off winning their first NFC East crown since 2009, the Cowboys opened the current campaign with respectable 14/1 Super Bowl odds.
But following injuries to quarterback Tony Romo and receiver Dez Bryant, Dallas went into freefall, losing their next seven contests, including six losses against the spread, threatening their playoff hopes and decimating their Super Bowl futures odds.
Romo’s return to action produced immediate results for the Cowboys, with the win over Miami leaving them just two games back of New York in the underachieving NFC East.
The 5-5 Giants enjoyed a bye last week following a heartbreaking 27-26 loss to New England, and take the field this weekend in Washington with slightly improved 14/1 odds.
New York has failed to post consecutive SU wins in their last five contests, but maintain a one-game lead over both the Redskins and Philadelphia in the divisional standings, and remain strong -110 chalk to claim the NFC East crown.
The Eagles enter their Thanksgiving Day clash with Detroit on a dismal 1-3 SU and ATS run, sending their Super Bowl 50 odds tumbling to 66/1, and their divisional odds to +400.
The Redskins take a four-game SU win streak at home into their meeting with the Giants, the first of four divisional matchups down the stretch, but with a 3-11 SU record in their last 14 against NFC East rivals, Washington has dropped to a distant 200/1 in Super Bowl 50 betting, and +600 in divisional betting.
The Patriots continue to lead the way on the Super Bowl odds, holding steady at a short 12/5.
Winners of their last four SU, the Arizona Cardinals have emerged as New England’s closest competition, with 5/1 odds, followed by the undefeated Carolina Panthers at 7/1, and the Green Bay Packers, who have risen to 8/1 following their 30-13 win over Minnesota last weekend.
Despite a rash of injuries, the Pittsburgh Steelers keep on winning, riding their 6-4 record to top spot in the AFC Wild Card race and strong 10/1 odds.
The Giants are joined by the Cincinnati Bengals and Denver Broncos at 14/1, followed by the 5-5 Seattle Seahawks, who round out the front of the pack at 16/1, despite sitting outside the NFC playoff picture.
The Vikings have fallen to 22/1, ahead of the Indianapolis Colts and Kansas City Chiefs, deadlocked at 33/1, while the Eagles sit alongside the Atlanta Falcons and Houston Texans at 66/1.
The St. Louis Rams are joined at 100/1 by the Jacksonville Jaguars, followed by the Buffalo Bills, Oakland Raiders, New York Jets, and Tampa Bay Buccaneers at 150/1, the Lions and Chicago Bears at 250/1, and the Dolphins and New Orleans Saints at 300/1.
The Baltimore Ravens sit at a distant 500/1, trailed by the Tennessee Titans at 750/1, and the San Francisco 49ers at 1000/1, while the San Diego Chargers and Cleveland Browns share dubious longshot honors, each with 2000/1 odds.
