- Oddsmakers have the Dallas Cowboys as 10.5-point home favorites over the Indianapolis Colts in the Week 13 SNF game, but NFL public betting splits aren’t backing Dallas as solidly
- The Cowboys are garnering a small majority of public spread splits, but are dominating the public moneyline trends
- All the NFL public betting and money percentages for the Colts vs Cowboys on Sunday Night Football are analyzed in the story below
The Colts and Cowboys once played in the Super Bowl. That game, in 1971, was close, the Colts winning 16-13. The NFL odds are displaying that oddsmakers are anticipating that this one will be somewhat more lopsided.
Dallas is a 10.5-point home favorite over Indianapolis in the Week 13 SNF game. In the NFL public betting splits, though, people aren’t as sold on the Cowboys.
Dallas is getting a slight majority in spread betting and handle. However, the public is massively supporting the Cowboys to be outright winners of this game.
Total wagering is also causing a level of indecision among public bettors. There’s 58% of handle supporting the under on the total of 45.5 points. However, 57% of bets are going with the over.
The game is being broadcast by NBC. Kickoff set set for 8:20 pm ET at AT&T Stadium on Sunday, December 4.
Spread Splits Tilting Toward Dallas
The Cowboys were the 9.5-home road chalk in the NFL Week 13 opening line for this game, so the line has grown a touch since then.
While the public is leaning toward Dallas in the spread wagering splits, people aren’t exactly lovingly embracing the idea of the Cowboys covering as the 10.5-point chalk. There’s 62% of handle and 58% of bets going on Dallas.

The last three times the Cowboys were a 10+ point choice over the Colts, they’re 2-1 ATS. Dallas failed to cover on Thanksgiving as a 10-point pick over the New York Giants. But the Cowboys did cover as a 9-point pick over Chicago earlier in the season.
Dallas is a solid 7-4 ATS overall this season. At home, the Cowboys are 4-2 ATS. As a betting favorite, they’re also 4-2 ATS.
Indianapolis is 4-2 ATS as an underdog this season. But the Colts are 2-4 ATS in their last six games and 5-7 overall. As a road club, they’re 2-4 ATS, but 2-2 as away underdogs.
Colts vs Cowboys An Underwhelming Experience
The Colts and Cowboys don’t clash often but when they do, the games tend to be low-scoring affairs. Looking at the Colts vs Cowboys picks, they tend to trend toward the under. Four of the last five Indianapolis vs Dallas games have hit on the under.
Three of the last four games between the two teams played in Dallas also went under. The last time the over hit on a Colts at Cowboys game was in 1996.

The public uncertainty on which way to play the total for this game is entirely understandable, though. Dallas has seen the total go over in four the club’s past six games. Dallas is the NFL’s #7 scoring offense, putting up 25.4 points per game. However, when playing a team from the AFC, the under has proven to be the winning play in five of the Cowboys’ last seven games.
As the league’s #30 scoring offense, getting just 15.8 points on the board per game, the under and the Colts are fast friends. The total has gone under in eight of Indy’s last nine road games, and in 14 of the club’s last 17 games overall. Against teams from the NFC East, the under is 6-1 in the last seven Colts games.
Straight-Up, the Public Loves Dallas
Second in the NFC East at 8-3 SU, the Cowboys are now the fifth betting choice in the Super Bowl odds at +900. Dallas is also carrying the public betting splits on the moneyline for this game. There’s 89% of handle and 93% of bets going with the Cowboys to win straight up.
Dallas is 5-1 SU as a home team this season and 4-0 SU as a home favorite. The Colts are 2-3-1 SU as an away team in 2022. Indianapolis is 2-2 SU as an away underdog.
The Colts are 1-5 SU in their past six games and 1-6 SU in their last six visits to Dallas.
