- The Cowboys have played well in their last five games as the betting favorite, going 5-0 straight up and 5-0 against the spread.
In this game, I’m favoring Washington to cover the spread as 11-point underdogs. Washington showcased an effective ground game in their last matchup with New York, and I anticipate a similar performance this week. I’m locking in my bet on Washington before the kickoff.
My choice for this game is the under as the over/under line is set higher than the lines in all of Washington’s previous games this season. We see this line as too generous for these teams, and we anticipate the game will remain under 48.5.
