Falcons vs. Cowboys prediction, pick, odds, and how to watch the Week 10 game

What is our prediction for Falcons vs. Cowboys, how do the latest NFL odds shape up, and what channel can you watch this Week 10 game on?

While this Atlanta Falcons vs. Dallas Cowboys game once looked simple from a prediction standpoint, last weekend’s events changed the picture slightly. The Falcons picked up an important win, while the Cowboys looked a shell of themselves. Let’s take a look at what to expect in this Atlanta at Dallas matchup, make a prediction for how it might go along with the NFL odds, and look at what channel you can watch and/or where you can listen to this Week 10 game.

The Atlanta Falcons have turned their season around in 2021. After starting 0-2 and then 1-3, they have since won three of their last four to sit at 4-4 through their first eight games. Their two losses since Week 2 have come by a combined margin of just 10 points, games they could’ve won in different circumstances.

From a betting point of view, making a prediction for how the Falcons might fare against the Cowboys is tough. Atlanta is 3-4-1 against the spread and has had no real consistency in their outcomes against the line in the past couple of months. In terms of the total, the Falcons have five overs and three unders.

The performance of the Cowboys last week was a shock to the system. They were a consistent team who hadn’t lost since Week 1. Additionally, they had been performing well against the spread. The Cowboys were 7-0 ATS going into last week. Even the game against the Buccaneers that they lost, they had covered reasonably easily.

The Falcons will be hoping to avoid another collapse in Dallas

Before we look at a potential prediction for how this game between the Cowboys and Falcons may turn out, let’s look back at their meeting from last season (because it was remarkable).

The Falcons raced out to a 20-0 lead in the first quarter. At the half, they still led 29-10. That is when the Cowboys started to make it interesting. Dallas scored 14 unanswered points in the third quarter to close the game to 29-24. The Falcons would then respond with 10 unanswered of their own to lead 39-24 with under eight minutes to go.

When Dalton Schultz found the end zone and the Cowboys failed on the two-point conversion with 4:57 remaining, the game looked done. The Cowboys were still down by two scores (39-30) with time running out on them. Prescott scored a rushing touchdown with 1:49 to go, but it seemed to be just a consolation score. Then things got weird.

Greg Zuerlein then produced a remarkable spinning onside kick that no Falcons player dared to touch. The Cowboys recovered, and Zuerlein would win the game with a 46-yard field goal six plays later.

Falcons vs. Cowboys prediction

The Cowboys will certainly hope this year’s game against the Falcons is less heart-stopping than the last encounter. However, after last week, anything is possible. This Falcons team has been hard to get a read on. One week they play their opponents hard, and the next, they seemingly cannot muster the same level of competition.

Dallas is the better all-around team. However, their defensive lapses mean opponents will always have a chance to be in games. If their offense also struggles for periods, they could find themselves in a hole in Week 10. If the Cowboys were to cover a 9-point spread, it would be the largest they have covered this season. It would also be the first spread of more than a touchdown they would have covered.

Falcons vs. Cowboys prediction: Cowboys 33, Falcons 24
