After spending the majority of the week at Cowboys -1, the line has quickly shot up to Redskins -2 or 2.5 depending upon the book you use. I was shocked to see Dallas favored after their last three inept efforts with two of those coming at home. Before we get to the preview, here are the trends:
- Since 1992, the Redskins are 60-93 against the spread as a favorite.
- Dallas has won 19 of their last 25 games at home in this series but have covered just 12 of the contests.
- Washington has gone over in 14 of their last 20 games on the road.
- Dallas is 8-14 against the spread the last three seasons at home.
The Cowboys have scored just 22 points over their last three contests against the Falcons, Eagles and Chargers. The offense looks horrible without Ezekiel Elliott and Tyron Smith. The offensive line just isn’t opening holes and Dak Prescott looks mighty ordinary especially when trying to connect to Dez Bryant. Sean Lee is not going to play which means this defense will be completely lost. They’ve given up 27 points or more in their last three. Washington looked pretty bad in their 20-10 win over the Giants. The best part of it was another great effort by the defense that held New York to less then 100 yards rushing and 100 yards passing. Dallas won the first game 33-19 earlier this season, but that was with a completely healthy squad. The shoe is on the other foot with Washington being the healthier team. I think they get an easy win.
Redskins 24, Cowboys 13
