Redskins vs. Dallas Cowboys: Odds and spread
In our previous review of this week's football we looked
at the game with the tightest odds and spread (see link at
bottom) and now it's time to look at the Washington Redskins vs.
Dallas Cowboys, the game with the biggest odds and the largest
point spread. The Washington Redskins (2-1) managed so far to
keep a winning record, but on Sunday will travel to Texas to
face what is arguably the best NFL team so far - the Dallas
Cowboys (3-0), who had little trouble holding on to a perfect
record so far.
Naturally the odds makers are far from
generous to the Redskins, at the online sportsbook
Bookmaker, Washington is one of
the top underdogs by odds, listed at +400 to win the game on
Sunday, while Cowboys fans would "enjoy" a -500 payout on their
bets. The Redskins vs. Cowboys point spread is currently sitting
at -11 points chalk the Cowboys with the total expected by the
odds makers currently at 46.5 points. Betting trends from
previous meetings between these two football teams show that
Washington is 5-1 against the spread in its last 6 games when
playing Dallas and the Cowboys are 2-6 against the spread in its
last 8 games.
Injuries are present in both NFL teams,
the Washington Redskins have listed defensive end Jason Taylor
as out for Week 4 with calf injury, wide receiver Malcolm Kelly
missed Thursday practice, while wide receiver Fred Smoot,
running back Mike Sellers and LB Marcus Washington all did a
limited practice yesterday. At Dallas RB Deon Anderson and DT
Tank Johnson missed practice with the Cowboys yesterday, but WR
Sam Hurd, LB Anthony Spencer, safety Pat Watkins and TE Jason
Witten all did a full practice on Thursday.
