The Dallas Cowboys have been trailing at halftime in five of their last six games as favorites.

Betting Impact:

This trend indicates their may be some value on the first half game prop. DraftKings for example has the Cincinnati Bengals as +128 moneyline first half underdogs, which may entice some bettors who do not necessarily think they are good enough to win the game outright. There may be more first half bettors than usual for this game, as the Cowboys are at a big scheduling disadvantage of having played on Tuesday, giving Cincinnati two extra days rest. Most teams are used to dealing with short weeks, but there is still something unusual about coming off a Tuesday game as that creates a schedule for the rest of the week that no player is accustomed to.
