The Cowboys and Ravens square off in an intra-conference tilt, as Baltimore will be favored to win in a close one at home.
The Dallas Cowboys will return from their bye week with a stiff road test against the Baltimore Ravens on the Week 6 docket, and oddsmakers have seen a dip in Baltimore's advantage as the week has gone on.
Undefeated at home so far this season, the Ravens opened the week as 4½-point favorites, according to OddsShark, but have seen that shrink by a point, as the line currently gives Baltimore a 3½-point advantage over the Cowboys. The over/under point total for the contest, however, opened and remains at 44 points.
Before their bye, Dallas (2-2) was upended at home by the Chicago Bears, 34-18, on Oct. 1 and must avoid a loss in Baltimore to stay above .500. The Ravens, on the other hand, return home after securing a low-scoring 9-6 win over the Kansas City Chiefs in Week 5.
The Cowboys rank in the top five in the league in two major passing categories, as they are fourth in the NFL in passing yards per game at 296.3 and first in the league in passing yards allowed, as the defense is surrendering 169.5 yards through the air per game.
