Who to bet on?
As expected, the Cowboys are having a hard time dealing with the loss of Dak Prescott for the rest of the season, as evidenced by their 38-10 loss to the Arizona Cardinals at home in Week 6. But even if Prescott was still healthy and playing, the Cowboys would’ve still had a hard time beating the Cardinals because of their horrendous defense. The Cowboys let Kyler Murray and Kenyan Drake run circles around them while Arizona receivers had a field day toying with Dallas’ secondary. Andy Dalton, starting in place of Prescott, went 35-of-54 for a touchdown and two interceptions. It’s still too early to write off Dalton as a possible savior for Dallas’ offense. The upcoming game against Washington could get him more confidence from his team, as the Football Team is unlikely to end up on top in a possible shootout with the Cowboys. Dallas should score more than 10 points this time around against Washington’s defense that has given up at least 30 points to four of its last five opponents. With more time practicing with the starters, Dalton should be able to put up a much better performance this week for Dallas’ offense that tops in the NFL with 259.0 passing yards per game.
The Cowboys are 5-1 against the spread in their last six games against Washington.
Cowboys seems to be able to put up points which is something Washington just can't do.
