The home team is 7-3 ATS in their last 10 meetings.

The Dallas Cowboys have more to play for at this point in the season and should be favored. However, the Washington Commanders have been a competitive bunch all year and while playoffs are out of the question, I'm sure they'd love to stick it to a division rival before they pack up for vacation. The Commanders are still an above average defensive side that know how to hang around and give themselves a chance. I'll take a shot with the free touchdown.
