Redskins vs. Cowboys Pick
Will Redskins versus Cowboys be high-scoring when the NFC East rivals battle on Thanksgiving Day?
According to oddsmakers from online sports book BetDSI, the Cowboys are now 7-point home favorites versus the Redskins after opening as a 6.5-point favorite. As for the total, the number hit the board at 48.5 but has been bet up to 51 at most online and Vegas sports books.
The Redskins will enter Turkey Day having won back-to-back games against the Vikings and Packers. They have covered in three straight games dating back to their 27-27 tie against the Bengals as a 3-point underdog in London. They're now 6-3-1 straight up this season and 7-3 against the spread, including covers in four of their last five games. They're also 3-1 SU on the road this season.
No team in the NFL is hotter on the field and at the betting window than the Dallas Cowboys. They've won nine straight games to get to 9-1 on the year and they covered the point spread in all nine of those contests. Their latest victory came against the Ravens as a 7-point home favorite in Week 11. They kicked a field goal in the final minutes of the fourth quarter and then hung on for yet another cover at the betting window. Their streak has been incredible.
OUR PREDICTION: The Redskins have been on a roll offensively. They're second in yards gained per game, are third in passing yards per game, 10th in rushing yards and ninth in points scored (25.4 PPG). Rob Kelley has given their offense an added dimension and quarterback Kirk Cousins continues to exceed expectations. The over is now 9-1 in the Redskins' last 10 conference games, is -0 in their last five divisional games, and is 17-5 in their last 22 games overall. On the other side, the over is 4-0 in the Cowboys' last four games in Week 12 and has cashed in four of their last five games playing on Thursday night.
