Washington Redskins vs Dallas Cowboys (DAL -11, O/U 45.5)
Dallas will look to keep their playoff hopes alive on Sunday with a win over Washington. After dropping the potential division-clinching game in Philly last weekend, they’ll need help from those same Eagles if they want to win the NFC East and reach the postseason at 8-8. Washington will try to spoil their division rival’s hopes of reaching a second straight postseason, and will turn back to Case Keenum at quarterback after Dwayne Haskins exited Week 16’s contest with an ankle injury. Dallas is the heavy betting favorite entering Sunday, currently listed as 11-point favorites over Washington.
Our model believes the Cowboys should have no issues disposing of the Redskins, projecting a final score of 30.0 – 16.1 in favor of Dallas. With a projected margin of victory near 14 points and a spread of 11, we have a solid edge on the Cowboys in this ever-important Week 17 matchup. Our model suggests a $53 wager on DALLAS -11 for an $100 average bettor.
