Public Betting Trends

According to oddsmakers from online sports book BetNow.eu, the Cowboys are 7-point favorites to beat the Redskins. The total, meanwhile, sits at 41 points. As of this writing, 54% of the public betting tickets are on the Redskins to cover the point spread.

Washington Redskins

Colt McCoy completed 6-of-12 passes for 54 yards and a touchdown and rushed five times for 35 yards in Washington's Week 11 loss to Houston. McCoy connected with Jordan Reed for a nine-yard touchdown on his first throw of the game, replacing Alex Smith (broken leg) early in the third quarter. Otherwise, McCoy was a scrambling pea-shooter passer who didn't show an ability to stretch the field, something McCoy has never done at the NFL level. McCoy will close out the season as a two-quarterback-league option.

Dallas Cowboys

Dak Prescott completed 22-of-32 passes for 208 scoreless yards in the Cowboys' Week 11 win over the Falcons, adding a four-yard rushing touchdown. After not scoring a rushing touchdown the first five weeks, Prescott has four of them over the last five games. His four-yard scamper was the first touchdown of the afternoon. Ezekiel Elliott later added a 23-yarder and led the Cowboys with a 7-79 receiving line en route to 201 total yards. Prescott gets the Redskins on Thanksgiving. In Week 7, Prescott had 306 total yards and two scores in a road loss against Washington. He'll be a borderline QB1 play.

NFL Betting Trends

Washington

The Redskins are 4-1 against the spread in their last five conference games and are 5-1 against the number in their last six games overall.

Dallas

The Cowboys are 5-1 against the spread in their last six divisional games but are 2-8 ATS in their last 10 games played on Thursday.

Prediction

The Redskins have covered the spread in nine of their last 11 trips to Dallas, the road team is 7-2 against the number in the last nine meetings between these two teams and the underdog is 31-10 ATS in the last 41 meetings. McCoy will be making his first start of the season but he’s a seasoned vet that has been in D.C. since 2014 so he’s comfortable running Jay Gruden’s offense. Dallas enters this week overvalued after back-to-back road wins against Philadelphia and Atlanta. The Cowboys should win but this is way too many points to lay in a fairly even matchup.
