Redskins a Strong Bet vs Cowboys

Washington Redskins Kirk Cousins

With a playoff spot locked up, the Redskins will be looking to end the season on a four game winning streak (both SU and ATS) when they hit the road for a game in Dallas on Sunday. Despite only going 3-7 SU vs the Cowboys in the last 10 matchups between the teams, they’ve gone 8-3 ATS in their last 11 vs Dallas.

Shark Bites
  • The total has gone OVER in five of the Redskins' last seven games after consecutive wins.
  • The Redskins are 4-1 ATS in their last five games.
  • Cowboys receiver Dez Bryant is unlikely to play (foot, ankle).

The Cowboys really have nothing going for them in this one. At home this season they’ve gone a pathetic 1-5-1 ATS, and are averaging just 15 points per game in their last five games at home. Kellen Moore is expected to get his third start in a row at quarterback for the Cowboys. In his two starts this season, Moore has thrown one touchdown and four interceptions, and has a quarterback rating of 45.4.

The Redskins are heating up at the right time and have become an offensive juggernaut during their three games wigging streak, scoring an average of 32.3 points in the three games. Despite not knowing the difference between spiking the ball or kneeling down, Kirk Cousins has been a major part of Washington’s success, as he’s thrown eight touchdowns and zero interceptions in his last two games.
