Washington Redskins vs Dallas Cowboys

Point Spread Value

Dak Prescott and the Dallas Cowboys look undeniable behind a 9-1 SU and ATS mark on the season that includes a whopping 9.8 winning margin on average and a + 8.4 differential versus the spread. Good teams win games but great teams cover, so they say in NFL betting circles. Well, the 9-1 SU and ATS record speaks volumes, doesn't it? Most recently, the Cowboys are coming off an impressive 27-17 home win over the Baltimore Ravens all while covering the biggest closing spread (-7) they were dealt to date. Dallas is the real deal and markets are following suit. Rookie Dak Prescott's play is no aberration or fluke and with the public riding the Cowboys with impunity the NFL lines are only going up. Lay the points with the Cowboys, no ifs or buts about it.

The Survivor

As we are shading the Cowboys as the -6.5 home chalk on our week 12 NFL picks, it follows were shading the Cowboys to win straight up. No disrespect to Washington Redskins, who are coming off a morale-boosting win over the Green Bay Packers in which both Kirk Cousins and Aaron Rodgers played stellar. You really couldn't fault either quarterback. Problem is Green Bay's defense is thin and riddled with injuries and that played a large part in the 42-24 blowout on Sunday Night Football. Don't reckon Cousins will have an easy time of it against a Dallas defense that should be getting more plaudits than it does.

Game Total

If Kirk Cousin and the Washington Redskins' 42-24 win over the Packers were any indication of what's to come in week 12 and the NFC East showdown with the Dallas Cowboys, NFL bettors could be treated to quite the shootout. The Redskins are 8-2-0 in O/U betting, a record that is down to both the O-line's ability to put up points and, sadly, the defenses ability to concede in almost equal proportion. Dak Prescott is sure to have a field day against such a defense.
