According to oddsmakers from online sports book BetDSI, the Cowboys are 4.5-point home favorites over the Redskins after opening as a 3.5-point favorite. The total for today's 1:00PM ET kickoff is sitting at 40.5 points.

Washington is 8-7 on the year and 8-7 against the spread, while Dallas enters play with a 4-11 record and a 4-10-1 mark against the spread. Our NFL public betting page shows that 69% of bettors are currently backing the Redskins +4.

Free Pick:

Redskins left tackle Trent Williams appears unlikely to play today due to a knee injury. After having wrapped up the division last week, it's doubtful that Washington would subject starting quarterback Kirk Cousins to injury without his blind-side protector on the field. It makes more sense that Jay Gruden will give several key starters a day off with the playoffs starting next week.

With the Redskins depleted and uninterested, the Cowboys are an intriguing play today despite their massive struggles offensively. No, Dallas doesn't have anything to play for either. But this is also the last chance for young players like Kellen Moore to put a good performance on film before the season comes to a close.
