  • DAL: Cowboys are 5-1 against the spread in their last six road games 
  • WAS: Total has gone over in nine of Washington's last 11 games against the Cowboys 

Why the Cowboys can cover

Dallas has slipped over the last few weeks, but remains elite against the spread. The Cowboys are 9-4 against the spread overall and boast a 5-1 road record against the number. Only the Green Bay Packers have covered more.

Dallas has one of the NFL's most dynamic offenses and leads the league in yards per game with 416.3. Only the Tampa Bay Buccaneers and Indianapolis Colts have scored more points than the Cowboys this year. While Dallas's scoring defense isn't top-notch, it's tied for fourth in takeaways with 23. Washington's defense is on the rise, but its middling offense might not be enough to hold off a powerhouse at full strength. 

Why Washington can cover

Washington is 4-0 against the spread during its winning streak, and the Football Team covered as an underdog in each of those contests. Dallas is one of the NFL's best teams against the spread, but has failed to cover in two of its last three games.

Washington's average of 19.8 points per game in 2021 is bellow average, but that figure has jumped to 22 points during the Football Team's winning streak. The home side's defense has also made leaps. Washington has faced two teams that crack the top eight in yards per game over the last four weeks, and its defense has held opponents to 15 points per contest en route to four wins. If the Cowboys come out slow against an opponent with momentum, they could fail to cover for the fourth time this year.
