Redskins Cowboys Betting – Cowboys Get Back On Track Against Redskins

The betting world did not share Washington Redskins’ owner Daniel Snyder’s optimism for the upcoming season. It would take more than head coach Mike Shanahan to turn around the NFL predictions surrounding Redskins, but it should have been a good head start. Instead, Shanahan started a very public feud with disgruntled defensive lineman Albert Haynesworth, and criticized the conditioning of his starting quarterback Donovan McNabb.

  • What: NFL betting
  • When: Sunday, December 19th, 1:00PM ET
  • Where: Cowboys Stadium, Arlington, TX
  • Pick: No line

What’s On The Line

The Dallas Cowboys (4-9) are 3-2 under interim head coach Jason Garrett but their NFL scores are suffering due to injuries. Starting quarterback Tony Romo and wide receiver Dez Bryant are still out. The Redskins (5-8) cannot seem to win critical games. Both teams are out of any playoff contention, and this game is going to be played to see who makes the team next year.

Offensive Matchups: Redskins Cowboys Betting

Dallas backup quarterback Jon Kitna is doing a good job as Tony Romo’s backup, but he has working with some defective offensive parts. The Cowboys offensive line is nowhere near as good as people thought it would be, running backs Felix Jones and Marion Barber are having terrible seasons and the wide receivers are inconsistent. But Kitna has managed three wins since Romo was hurt, and he has moved the offense well.

It looks like the Washington Redskins offense is operating under a lack of confidence. Donovan McNabb can often be seen hanging his head when he comes off the field after an offensive series. Backup running back Ryan Torain is making his case to be the starting running back next year, but the Redskins really need to improve their passing game if they want to start winning again.

Betting Edge: Push

Defensive Matchups: Redskins Cowboys Betting

The Cowboys defense is ranked 25th overall allowing an average of 367 total yards of offense per game. Dallas had a chance to get within striking distance of the Philadelphia Eagles last week, but the defense could not stop the Philly running game in the last two minutes of the game and the Eagles went away with the win. Dallas has been giving up big points all season long, and that is not going to help them against the Redskins.

The Redskins have the worse defense in the league. Washington’s defense is ranked 32nd in the league giving up an average of 395 total yards per game. What kills the Washington defense is a good passing quarterback that also has a good running game with him. Dallas has a decent quarterback in Kitna, but the running game has been a disappointment.

Betting Edge: Cowboys

Notable Injuries: Redskins Cowboys Betting

Linebacker Lorenzo Alexander (hamstring), defensive end Kedric Golston (elbow), wide receiver Santana Moss (knee) and linebacker Brian Orakpo (ankle) are all questionable for this game. Those are some key defensive injuries that could slow an already bad Washington defense.

The Cowboys are reporting quarterback Tony Romo (shoulder) and running back Marion Barber (calf) out for this game. Safety Gerald Sensabaugh (thigh) is questionable and linebacker Keith Brooking (foot) is probable.

Betting Edge: Cowboys

Outlook and Pick: Redskins Cowboys Betting

Both teams have nothing to lose and nothing to gain in this contest. But the Cowboys seemed to have developed a sense of self-discipline that they did not have earlier in the season. Some of the Dallas players are slipping back into their old habits of bad penalties and bad decisions from earlier in the year, but it seems that Jason Garrett’s message is getting through to the team. Mike Shanahan has created chaos in Washington and has already probably started looking towards next season.

Sports Betting Pick: Dallas Cowboys
