Dallas Cowboys @ Indianapolis Colts

ODDS: O/U 44 04/21 19:00 ET
Dallas Cowboys @ Indianapolis Colts

So far this SIMS season it has not been a fun ride being on the side of the over, with clock management issues, unreasonably long field-goal attempts, and QB-caused sacks constantly reminding us just how much further AI has to go to make gameplay simulations truly realistic.

Still, the under has by no means been pitching a shutout, with Dallas themselves putting up 41 on a hapless Texans team their last time out on the virtual field. And with their matchup today against the Indianapolis Colts featuring two of the best offensive lines in the NFL, both QBs should have ample time to sit in the pocket and find open-receivers downfield – not to mention Zeke and Marlon Mack both able to do some damage in their own right.

The only concern in this one has to be Jacoby Brissett’s 71 Madden rating, with the game being developed before he put up a solid season in replacement of Andrew Luck that should definitely be good enough to crack the 80 rating mark come version 2021. But sitting behind arguably the best offensive line in the game with one of the league’s top receivers and two dependable TEs at his disposal, Jacoby should – in theory – be serviceable enough to put up his fair share of points towards the total.

That’s all for today, stay safe out in there and, as always, remember to never bet more than you can afford to lose.
