Six games remain in the NFL regular season. Contenders will separate from pretenders. An elite group will emerge as true and clear frontrunners for the Super Bowl, while others will be lucky enough just to make the playoffs.
On Thursday Night Football, two teams enduring tough stretches and hardships will square off in the Big Easy.
While this Week 13 matchup between the Dallas Cowboys and New Orleans Saints may not seem like such a premier showdown, FanDuel Sportsbook Arizona is offering a way for new bettors in the Grand Canyon State to cash in on the game.
In a big way. As in turning a simple $5 wager into $150 with a 30-1 odds boost on Thursday’s moneyline. Taking advantage of this offer takes little effort. And we’ll make it even easier for you: You don’t need a promo code. Just click below.

Measuring up Dallas Cowboys-New Orleans Saints
On paper, in theory, the Cowboys should have the upper hand. After all, New Orleans has been riddled with injuries all season, from franchise wideout Michael Thomas missing the entire season to starting QB Jameis Winston going down in October. Offensively, the one constant, Alvin Kamara, remains questionable with a knee injury.
All of this, as well as offensive uncertainty and inconsistency and porous defense of late, has led to a four-game losing streak for the Saints. Still, New Orleans (5-6) remains well in the hunt for a wild card spot in the postseason.
To maintain that position, though, the Saints will have to put their third-best rush defense (and 10th-worst pass defense) against a Dallas team that appears well on its way to the NFC East division championship.
Despite dropping three of their last four, including a brutal overtime loss at home on Thanksgiving, the Cowboys (7-4) boast statistically the best offense in the NFL. Leading that charge, QB Dak Prescott ranks fifth in passing yards per game (293.2). Dallas, though, has its own set of off-field problems. While Amari Cooper (illness) will travel with the team and expects to play, the Cowboys will go without Cedrick Wilson, who put up over 100 yards receiving on Thanksgiving. The status of WR CeeDee Lamb (concussion) also remains to be seen; although he did clear the NFL’s five-step concussion protocol earlier this week.
On top of all that, Dallas has a history of not performing well against nondivisional opponents. This season, for example, the Cowboys have gone 5-1 against NFC East foes but just 2-3 outside the division.
Then again, Arizona betting apps aren’t favoring Dallas on the road for nothing.
