Predictions For Cowboys Redskins Betting – Cowboys, Redskins Clash With NFC East Title On The Line In Season Finale
With 16 weeks of NFL regular season action in the books, it all comes down to this. Tony Romo and the Dallas Cowboys will visit Robert Griffin III and the Washington Redskins in their season finale on Sunday Night Football, with first place in the NFC East on the line. RGIII and the Redskins have won six-straight sports betting contests to climb to first place in the division with one game to play. However, the Cowboys hold the tiebreaker between these two clubs with the better overall record in the NFC, and will leapfrog Washington for the division title with the sports betting win.
Dallas Cowboys @ Washington Redskins

NFL Betting Preview: Washington Redskins – 3
Romo and the Cowboys couldn’t take care of business in a 34-31 overtime loss to the New Orleans Saints last Sunday, even after coming back from down 14 in the fourth quarter. That will all be forgotten if Dallas wins this week and clinches a playoff spot, but it won’t be easy against a Redskins’ team that beat them 38-31 earlier this season.
NFL Betting Preview: Dallas Cowboys
The Cowboys have let their fans down time and again over the years, and couldn’t get the job done last week despite over 400 yards passing and four touchdowns from Romo. Two of those scores went to wide receiver Dez Bryant, who has been absolutely dominant down the stretch, but Dallas will need a better effort from its defense to get the job done in this one. The Cowboys have allowed at least 34 points in each of their last two losses, while holding their opponents below that mark in each of their eight wins this season.
NFL Betting Preview: Washington Redskins
The Redskins torched Dallas for 437 total yards and 38 points in a Thanksgiving Day win, including four second-quarter touchdowns that blew the game wide open early on. Robert Griffin III passed for over 300 yards and four scores in that win, including two long touchdowns passes, each for over 58 yards. The Washington defense also forced three turnovers in that victory, and after allowing rookie Nick Foles to pass for 345 yards last week, may need to rely on those turnovers to get the job done this week.
NFL Betting Preview: Outlook & Pick
As much as the Cowboys have let their fans down in recent years, this team has battled hard all year and has proven that they can fight back from any deficit and at least have a chance to win. Dallas has overcome a lot and is still in position to reach the playoffs, and should be able to get past the Redskins as long as they don’t turn the ball over. This online sportsbook contest should be close regardless of who comes out on top, so it makes sense to take the points with a Cowboys’ team that could very well win straight up.
