Washington snapped a three-game losing streak before going into its bye week, as it picked up a 24-14 victory over the Oakland Athletics as 3.5-point road favorites on Sept. 29, while going UNDER the betting total for a second consecutive contest. The Redskins are still in decent shape despite winning just a single game thus far, as they sit just one-half game behind Dallas and Philadelphia in the NFC East standings. Washington is 2-5 SU and 3-4 ATS as road underdogs of 3.5 to 7 points the last two-plus seasons, with the UNDER going 5-2 in that situation.
The Redskins will meet the Cowboys for the 107th time Sunday, as they look to win their third consecutive game in the series. Washington scored 66 points and picked up 798 yards of total offense in capturing both meetings during the 2012 NFL campaign. Offensively, the team needs a solid performance out of running back Alfred Morris, who has been dealing with bruised ribs. He ran for 313 yards and four touchdowns against the Cowboys during his rookie season.
Dallas has won 17 of its last 21 home games in this series, as it looks to bounce back from a 51-48 setback to the Denver Broncos as 7.5-point home underdogs last Sunday, while going OVER the betting total for the second consecutive affair. Cowboys quarterback Tony Romo is enjoying a great statistical season, and will want to target tight end Jason Witten. The perennial All-Pro target down the middle of the field has caught 94 passes for 1,060 yards and six touchdowns in 20 games against the Redskins. Dallas is 6-7 SU and 3-10 ATS versus division foes over the last tow-plus seasons, with the OVER going 7-6 in those 13 opportunities.
The Cowboys are certainly capable of covering this type of number, with Romo coming off a franchise-record 506-yard performance in terms of passing yards. Witten, Dez Bryant and Terrance Williams combined for 413 receiving yards and four scores against the Broncos. Dallas absolutely needs a victory in this spot, as it prepares for an upcoming two-game road swing on its schedule.
Sports bettors will likely play the total, as the UNDER has cashed in the Redskins’ last two games following a week off.
