The Dallas Cowboys and Washington Football Team face off on Sunday in an NFC showdown at FedExField. When these two teams faced off in November of 2020 it was Washington that won 41-16.
Dallas comes into this game with an 8-4 record overall and they have gone 9-3 against the spread. In the last game against the New Orleans Saints the defense was strong giving up only 17 points and that led to the 10 point victory. Dallas is averaging 29.4 points while their defense is giving up 22.3 points per game. Dak Prescott has thrown for 3,170 yards, 23 touchdowns, and eight interceptions. Running back Tony Pollard is questionable for this game and it would be a loss if they don’t have him. In this game, the Cowboys are going to need the defense to be good and slow down Washington’s offense.
On the other side of this matchup is the Washington Football Team who sit with a 6-6 record and they have gone 5-7 against the spread. Washington struggled to start the season but they have won four games in a row. In the last game against the Las Vegas Raiders, the defense was strong giving up only 15 points and that led to the two-point victory. Washington is averaging 20.5 points while their defense is giving up 24.8 points per game. Taylor Heinicke has been strong throwing for 2,809 yards, 18 touchdowns, and 11 interceptions.
The Cowboys are 7-0 against the spread in their last seven games against the NFC. Washington is 4-0 against the spread in their last four games. The underdog is 29-13 against the spread in their last 42 meetings. The home team is 5-2 against the spread in the last seven meetings. The over is 9-2 in the last 11 meetings.
Washington has been competitive as of late, and the Cowboys haven’t been as dominant in their last few games. Washington’s defense is going to be strong, and that is going to be the difference in this game. Back Washington against the spread. In terms of the total, I also believe that the under will cash.
