The Cowboys handed the Saints their first loss of the season last week while the Redskins were humiliated in football odds at home last week losing to the New York Giants.
NFL betting lines have Dallas as about a touchdown favorite on Sunday night with a total of 42. The Cowboys are saying all the right things heading into this NFL betting lines contest but a letdown is definitely a possibility. "It’s not high school where you know you’re going to win before you step on the field," defensive end Marcus Spears said. "These guys are professionals and there’s a lot of pride that goes into this game. It’s not going to be a cakewalk by any means.”
This is really a huge test for Dallas in football odds. Winning last week against the Saints was one thing but winning a game you are supposed to win is where Dallas has struggled in football odds. The Cowboys defeated Washington last month but it was only a 7-6 victory. The Redskins will have to find a way to block DeMarcus Ware who was a huge factor in the Cowboys NFL betting lines win against the Saints. Last week, Washington couldn’t block the New York defensive line and quarterback Jason Campbell was on his back all night.
Even though the Cowboys won last week at New Orleans they have not played well on the road. The Cowboys are 4-9 vs. NFL betting lines in their last 13 road games. Dallas is also a poor road favorite and they are poor in the division. The Cowboys are 1-4 vs. NFL betting lines in their last 5 vs. the NFC East and they are 0-4 ATS in their last 4 games as a road favorite. The Cowboys are 8-3 vs. NFL betting lines in their last 11 meetings in Washington.
The Redskins are 4-1 ATS in their last 5 games as an underdog. Washington has been terrible at home in NFL betting lines. The Redskins are 3-10 ATS in their last 13 home games.
Six of the last seven Dallas games have gone under the NFL betting lines. Seven of the last ten Dallas games in December have gone under the football odds. The last four Washington games overall have gone over the NFL betting lines. Five of the last eight meetings between the two teams in Washington have gone under the NFL betting lines.
