Dallas has looked like a contender all season and is very strong on both sides of the ball. Dallas did defeat Washington 27-20 two weeks ago in Washington. Dallas was able to force four turnovers in that win.
Washington is 4-1-1 ATS in their last 6 games and 0-3-1 ATS in their last 4 NFC East games. The under is 6-1 in Washington’s last 7 December games. Dallas is 6-0 ATS in their last 6 December games and 11-1 ATS in their last 12 games against the NFC. The under is 7-1 in Dallas’ last 8 games. The over is 6-0 in these two teams last 6 head to head meetings in Dallas.
Dallas has looked very sharp for just about their whole season and gets to play a team they beat two weeks ago. Washington had to play on Tuesday of this past week, which makes this weeks task even more challenging. Dallas has some trends in their favor coming into this game and I think they will have a big offensive game here. I like Dallas to cover the 10 points.
