Redskins vs. Cowboys Total Pick
Will Thursday night's NFC East matchup between the Washington Redskins and Dallas Cowboys fall under the betting total? Kickoff for this divisional tilt is set for 8:25 p.m. ET.
Matchup: Redskins (5-6) at Cowboys (5-6)
TV: NBC, 8:25 p.m. ET
Line: Cowboys -1.5 (44)
ODDS: According to oddsmakers from online sports book Bovada.lv, the over/under currently sits at 44 points after hitting the board at that same number. The Cowboys, meanwhile, are 1.5-point home favorites versus the Redskins, who opened as 1.5-point road underdogs.
PUBLIC BETTING: As of this writing, the Redskins are receiving 66% of the tickets.
KEY TRENDS: The road team is a perfect 7-0 against the spread in the last seven meetings between these two teams and the Redskins have covered in nine of their last 10 trips to Dallas. Washington is also 15-7 against the spread in its last 22 games versus the Cowboys and the underdog has cashed in 29 of the last 39 meetings between these two teams.
OUR PREDICTION: Left tackle Tyron Smith returned to the Cowboys last week but it didn't matter as their offense still struggled. Dak Prescott clearly needs Ezekiel Elliott to move the ball, so it's hard to trust the over in any Dallas game right now.
The under is 4-0 in the Cowboys' last four games, is 4-0 in their last four games in November, and is 4-1 in their last five divisional games. The under is also 9-2 in the Boys' last 11 games coming off a double-digit home loss, is 16-7 in their last 23 games coming off an ATS loss, and is 10-4 in their last 14 games after allowing more than 250 yards passing in their previous game.
On the other side, the under is 5-2 in the Redskins' last seven games following an ATS win and is 17-8-1 in their last 26 games after allowing less than 250 total yards in their previous game.
