Dallas (3-8 SU, 3-8 ATS)
Dallas got absolutely man-handled in their humbling 33-14 Thanksgiving Day loss to unbeaten Carolina while never coming close to covering the spread as a 1-point home underdog.
Making matters worse is the fact that the Cowboys lost starting quarterback Tony Romo (again) as he suffered another collarbone injury that will put him on the shelf for the remainder of the season after he missed the team’s previous seven games.
Before leaving, Romo completed 11 of 21 passes for 106 yards – and three interceptions. The Cowboys were also held to just 31 rushing yards in the overwhelming loss. Head coach Jason Garrett said the early stages of the game played into Carolina’s hands. “They’re a really good football team and the best thing they do is take the ball away,” Garrett said. “It’s a big part of the formula for winning that they have.”
Washington (5-6 SU, 5-6 ATS)
The Redskins are coming off a hard-fought 20-14 win over the division rival Giants last weekend as 1-point underdogs. Now the division-leading Skins will look to win consecutive games for the first time this season. ”We’re just in the driver’s seat right now,” Redskins defensive end Jason Hatcher said. ”We’ve just got to continue winning games and driving the car – right into the playoffs.”
Quarterback Kirk Cousins hit fleet-footed wide receiver DeSean Jackson for a 63-yard touchdown pass and scored on a fourth-down quarterback sneak to lift the Redskins to victory while Washington’s defense picked off Giants signal-caller Eli Manning three times in the win.
Redskins @ Dallas NFL Odds Game Analysis:
Wagering on this Week 13 NFC East divisional clash is a simple case of taking the lesser of two evils. Washington has not lost at home under Kirk ‘Mr. You Like That’ Cousins and looked solid in beating the Giants last weekend while Dallas got all kinds of smacked around in their humbling 33-14 home loss to the Panthers.
More importantly, the Cowboys will be going to battle without Tony Romo and we all know how that’s worked out for Dallas this season (0-7). The Cowboys are 2-7 ATS in their last nine games, 1-6 ATS in their last seven games against their NFC counterparts and a winless 0-5 ATS in their last five Monday Night Football games.
While Dallas has gone 2-8 ATS in their last 10 games against Washington and just 1-4 ATS in their last five road dates against the Skins, Washington has gone 4-1 ATS in their last five home games.
Washington gets the win and narrow ATS cover.
My Pick: Washington 27 Dallas 21
