The NFC East is for any team to win. Although the Dallas Cowboys and the Washington Football Team are having bad seasons, they still have a huge chance of winning the division, which speaks volumes about how hilariously ugly things are going.
Betting Preview for the Dallas Cowboys vs Washington Football Team Regular Season Week 7 Game on October 25, 2020
Where: FedExField, Landover
When: Sunday, October 25, 2020, 1:00 PM ET
TV Broadcast: FOX
Betting on the Dallas Cowboys (+1)
Regular Season Record: 2-4
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.
Betting on the Washington Football Team (-1)
Regular Season Record: 1-5
Washington has to stop shooting itself in the foot. In their 20-19 road loss to the New York Giants in Week 6, the Football Team turned the ball over twice and got called for eight penalties for 50 yards. But up against a Dallas’ defense that is acting like a broken turnstile, Washington may not be as error-prone this week as they have been in previous games. Dallas is last in the NFL in forcing turnovers, with opponents averaging just 0.5 turnovers per game. That’s good news for quarterback Kyle Allen, who passed for 280 yards and two touchdowns with an interception on 31-of-42 completions against the Giants. Dallas’ run defense is so vulnerable too, so Washington tailbacks Antonio Gibson and J.D. McKissic could find themselves breaking away with big plays. Dallas is just 27th in the NFL with a 48.81 opponents third-down conversion percentage. This matchup against the Cowboys’ letdown pass defense is also looking prime to be roasted by Terry McLaurin. The Washington wideout is top-10 in the NFL in receptions (36) and receiving yards (487).
The over is 4-1 in Washington’s last five games as the home team.
The Cowboys win, 23-21.
