Miami Dolphins vs. Dallas Cowboys: Spread Info, Line and Predictions
The Miami Dolphins' visit to the Dallas Cowboys wasn't expected to be good TV a few weeks ago.
After three straight wins for both teams, things have changed dramatically.
The Dolphins have outscored opponents 86-20 in their three wins and have covered four straight spreads.
The Cowboys, meanwhile, hold a share (and advantage) of the NFC East lead with the New York Giants.
Both the Dolphins and Cowboys and surging right now and, despite their lopsided records, will give us a game worth watching.
Where: Cowboys Stadium; Arlington, Texas
When: Thursday, Nov. 24 at 4:15 p.m. EST
Spread: Cowboys -7
Four straight covers for the Dolphins and an up-and-down Cowboys team that has only covered one spread in their three-game win streak makes for a difficult decision.
It is no secret the Dolphins are better on the road, but Tony Romo is a ridiculous 18-2 in starts in the month of November.
That is a tough trend to buck, but seven points is a lot of points.
Neither is a great play, but when you're unsure it is better to take the points.
The Dolphins have only hit the over once this season and that was in Week 1.
The Cowboys, who have gone over in each of their last two games, have hit or gone over 44 points in four of their last five.
No coincidence that 44 is the number. We'll go over because crazy things happen on Turkey Day, but don't get crazy with the play.

Fantasy Big Plays
Start 'Em—Tony Romo, QB, Cowboys
The Dolphins defense has done a much better job against the run than they have the pass. Fortunately for fantasy owners, Romo is also playing well right now.
The Cowboys should have success through the air even if they cannot make much room on the ground.
Wouldn't be shocking to see Romo throw multiple touchdowns early in this game.
Start 'Em—Reggie Bush, RB, Dolphins
He's scored a touchdown in each of the last three games and has 11 catches in those three games as well. The Cowboys have been good, not great against the run of late.
Keys to Dolphins Win
Keep Cowboys offense off the field. Tony Romo, DeMarco Murray and Dez Bryant are big plays waiting to happen. The best chance Miami has at winning this game is controlling the football, making the most of their opportunities and limiting big plays.
They should have opportunities to score points of their own against the Cowboys' secondary, but establishing a running game will be crucial to their success.
Will the Cowboys Cover a 7-Point Spread?
Keys to Cowboys Win
Limiting mistakes. This doesn't just include turnovers, this includes everything. Tony Romo, ball carriers, defensive schemes.
The Cowboys have more than enough talent to beat the Dolphins, but they need to make sure they don't beat themselves first.
They have a huge opportunity to take another step up in the division as the Giants take on the Saints in New Orleans on Monday night.
Prediction: Cowboys 27, Dolphins 20
