The Cowboys’ five-game winning streak was snapped in tough fashion after they were blown out 31-10 in Buffalo 😳. Dallas still has the NFL’s second-best point differential at +167, only behind San Francisco’s +191.
Yet, the Cowboys 🤠 went from being tied for the third-best Super Bowl odds (+700) to now sitting in the seventh spot (+1200). Dak Prescott saw a major shift for his MVP odds as well, going from a +150 co-favorite with Brock Purdy to the third choice at +750.
We brought in trader Wyatt Satre to discuss the big odds shifts stemming from one game.
ASK THE TRADER: Even though the Cowboys got blown out in embarrassing fashion, the key reason for their sizable shift was that their chances of landing the No. 1 seed and bye in the NFC really diminished. Additionally, the Cowboys now face a major uphill climb to win the NFC East, meaning their Super Bowl path would consist of multiple playoff road games. That’s not ideal considering all four Dallas losses have come on the road. For Dak’s MVP shift, it was a combination of his poor performance along with the other top contenders playing well.
