Dallas Cowboys Super Bowl Odds 2022
Dak Prescott is back as the Cowboys’ starting quarterback and he carries the hopes of dreams of the playoffs for Cowboys’ fans across the nation. With Dak as the starter, the Cowboys were one of the most explosive offenses in the league. Without him, the Cowboys were one of the worst offenses in the league and looked like they wanted to go on vacation more than they wanted to play in an NFL game.
The Cowboys are the favorite to win the NFC East this year and with many of their starters returning along with the rookies they drafted, Mike McCarthey and Jerry Jones have constructed a deep and talented team that should win the division.

Dallas Cowboys Odds Analysis
The oddsmakers are very high for a team that finished 6-10 last season. The Cowboys are usually overhyped, but this year the hype might be warranted as they are tied for the 8th best odds in the league for +3000.
These odds are tied with the Saints and Titans and are behind better teams like the Cheifs, Buccaneers, Bills, Ravens, Rams, Packers, 49ers, Browns, and Seahawks. The NFC is more top-heavy than the AFC as there are many clear-cut playoff teams like the Buccaneers, Packers, and Rams.
Then there is another tier of NFC teams that are most likely going to the playoffs like the Seahawks, 49ers, and Saints.
The Cowboys are in the next highest tier in terms of NFC playoff rankings because they have to compete with a team in their division in this tier in the Washington Football Team. The Football Team is going to be the biggest thorn in the Cowboys’ side this whole season because they are the exact opposite of everything the Cowboys are. The Football Team is led by their spectacular defense with a great complimentary running game and passing game to keep their playoff chances afloat. The name of the game for the Football Team is to let their great defense carry them to their second straight NFC Division title. The Cowboys are the opposite because they want to outscore every team with their incredible offense.
The defense has gotten better thanks to the six straight draft picks they spent on defensive players in this year’s draft, but will this be enough to win the NFC East? Only time will tell.
Reasons Why the Dallas Cowboys Win the Super Bowl
Usually, offense doesn’t win championships, but Dallas might have the unit that can disprove that saying. The offense is the bread and butter for the Cowboys this season and they have playmakers at every level.
At quarterback, Dak Prescott is the new $40 million a year guy and he looked unstoppable before he got injured last season. Prescott was a mobile quarterback who also had a phenomenal deep passing throwing ability and while his running might take a back seat this season, his arm hasn’t really changed and he should return to being one of the best passers in the league this season.
At running back, Ezekiel Elliot had his worst season as a pro in 2020, but he should be better this season because this offseason he got into playing shape. Zeke is another Cowboys player who got paid a ton of money, and he has to produce as a top running back if the Cowboys want to make a playoff run.
The most dangerous unit of the Cowboys is their wide receivers, who are maybe the best trio of receivers in the league. Amari Cooper, CeeDee Lamb, and Michael Gallup form the three-headed monster on the outside and there are no teams in the league that can cover all three of them.
The other good thing that the Cowboys have going for them is their relatively easy schedule. The only obstacle for the Cowboys’ playoff chances is the Washington Football Team. The Cowboys should easily beat the Giants and Eagles which leaves the Football Team as the only other team in the way. Now, the Football Team is a formidable foe as they have a monstrous defense, but they also have a suspect offense. The Cowboys have the best quarterback in the division who might even be good enough to carry the team to the Super Bowl.
Reason Why the Dallas Cowboys Don’t Win the Super Bowl
The Cowboys have some glaring weaknesses in their defense and coaching staff.
We can start with the defense which was one of the worst in the league last year. The only reason that Dak Prescott had the incredible numbers that he had before he got injured was because the Cowboys were always playing from behind. The defense did the Cowboys no favors last year and couldn’t defend the run or the pass. The Cowboys addressed these defensive flaws by drafting players like LB Micah Parsons and CB Kelvin Joseph to sure up some of their massive defensive holes. But that might not be enough because a defense like that can’t be fixed overnight. This defense needs a complete overhaul and guys like CB Damontae Kazee and Keanu Neal should help new defensive coordinator Dan Quinn. But with all of the new faces in the building, this defense will need some time to gel so don’t be surprised if it takes a while for this team to start stopping people.
The other huge issue with the Cowboys is their coaching staff. It has been well documented that head coach Mike McCarthy did what every college student has dreamed about, lied on their resume, and continued to stay in their highly powerful and highly paid position even though the boss knows they lied. McCarthy said he looked at analytics in his one-year hiatus from the NFL, but it was very evident that he didn’t with some of the bone-headed decisions he made throughout the 2020 season.
It would be a shame if the Cowboys have one of their best teams in years and with the division wide open, only to be upended by an incompetent coach like McCarthy steering them into the dirt and out of the playoffs.
