UPDATE 3 P.M. ET FRIDAY: On Thursday, standout Cowboys cornerback Trevon Diggs suffered a torn ACL in practice, ending his season. But BetMGM didn't budge off its Dallas -12.5 opener, where the line has been all week.

Point-spread ticket count is approaching 2.5/1 and spread money is 4/1 on the double-digit favorite Cowboys.

The total opened at 43.5, topped out at 44.5 Monday and hit a low point of 42 (Over -125) Wednesday afternoon. Shortly thereafter, the number went to 43, where it remains this afternoon. It's two-way action, with 53% of tickets on the Over/59% of money on the Under.

UPDATE 11:30 P.M. ET SUNDAY: Dallas didn't have to face Aaron Rodgers in Week 2, and the result was to be expected. The Cowboys (2-0 SU and ATS) breezed to a 30-10 victory over the Jets, cashing as 8.5-point favorites.

Arizona (0-2 SU and ATS) had a major meltdown in its Week 2 loss. The Cardinals led 20-0 at halftime, but let the Giants come all the way back. Arizona, getting 4.5 points at home, allowed the final 24 points and lost 31-28 on a last-minute field goal.

Cowboys vs Cardinals Pick, Prediction

Action Network NFL betting expert Brandon Anderson offers this prediction:

The Cardinals count as a Kitchen Sink team at 0-2, but Arizona is 2-0 ATS and has actually led both games in the fourth quarter.

The Cowboys, however, are not the Commanders or the Giants.

The Cardinals are competing and should be 2-0 or at least 1-1. I'm not sure you really get the Kitchen Sink bump when your franchise would clearly prefer to go 0-17, but home underdogs of 10-to-14 points are 64-43 ATS over the past two decades (60%), including 5-1 in September.

The numbers say this is the right side, and it's the way to bet the Cards if you want action. Just know that it could be 21-0 after 10 minutes, too.
