NFC East rivals meet in D.C. this weekend when the Dallas Cowboys visit the Washington Redskins at 4:25 p.m. ET. Even though the betting total is sitting in the low 40s, is the under still a good play?

Public Betting Trends

According to oddsmakers from online sports book, the Redskins are 1-point favorites to beat the Cowboys. The total, meanwhile, sits at 41.5 points. As of this writing, 59% of the public betting tickets are on the Redskins to cover the point spread.

Dallas Cowboys

Sean Lee (hamstring) returned to a limited practice on Wednesday.  It's the first time he's practiced since injuring his hamstring in Week 3. The Cowboys may opt to sit Lee with a bye coming up in Week 8, but the veteran linebacker is getting close.

Washington Redskins

Paul Richardson had his ailing knee re-examined on Thursday. If there's good news, it's that an MRI was not required. "We’re trying to get to the bottom of it," coach Jay Gruden said. "We’re being extra cautious right now." Richardson's Week 7 availability appears genuinely up in the air. The Redskins promoted WR Jehu Chesson from the practice squad on Thursday.

NFL Betting Trends


The under is 4-1 in the Cowboys’ last five games after allowing less than 90 yards rushing in their previous game.


The over is 9-1 in the Redskins’ last 10 games after allowing less than 90 yards rushing in their previous game.


The under is 12-3 in the Cowboys’ last 15 games, is 22-6 in their last 28 road games, and is 7-0 in their last seven games coming off a win. On the other side, the under is 7-2 in the Redskins’ last nine games overall and is 5-1 in their last six home games. Both of these offenses have struggled at times and with the familiarity between the two, I like the defenses to play well Sunday.
