Thanks to a victory over the New York Giants in Week 15, the Dallas Cowboys are now 10-4 on the season and 4-0 against NFC East opponents. With a three-game win streak under their belts, the ‘Boys head back to Texas to play yet another rivalry game against the Washington Football Team. The matchup at AT&T Stadium will be Week 16’s Sunday Night Football game on NBC.
The Cowboys may be on a winning streak, but there is no denying that the offense is not playing at its best. Prescott continues to struggle and the run game is plagued by injury. The defense, however, continues to shine and leads the team to win games.
Dallas is taking on Washington for the second time in just two weeks. The Cowboys were supposed to dominate the Week 14 matchup but ended up making it a little too close for comfort with a 27-20 victory. This time around, the Cowboys have yet another opportunity to dominate a struggling Washington Football Team.
Washington Football Team vs Cowboys Week 16: Odds
At the time of writing, the Week 16 betting odds on WynnBET have the Cowboys as 10.5-point favorites at home in Arlington, TX. The Cowboys are -575 on the moneyline, while the Washington Football Team is the underdog at +425. The total for the game is set at 47.0 points (the exact total from the Week 14 matchup).
While Dallas should easily cruise through this game, you may want to think twice before putting your money on the over/under for this game. Washington is dealing with a lot of injuries and positive COVID cases. This will likely hurt their chances on both sides of the ball, but especially with scoring. Combine that with a struggling Cowboys offense and a dominant defense, seeing 47 or more points in this game seems unlikely. While we hope the Cowboys’ offense turns things around, you never know.
You should also expect the odds to change around a bit after Tuesday night’s Washington vs Eagles game. We will post the final odds and injury report for the Cowboys game on Sunday.
Washington Football Team vs Cowboys Week 16: Prediction
Washington hasn’t even played their Week 15 matchup yet. Their game against the Eagles was postponed to Tuesday due to an alarming number of positive COVID-19 cases. At one point, WFT had over 20 players on their COVID list. At the time of writing, Washington has seven players on the IR and 16 players on the COVID list. That doesn’t even include the seven coaches who also won’t be present for Tuesday’s game due to COVID.
With a shortened week, injuries, and tons of personnel coming down with the Coronavirus, Dallas should sail through this matchup. But, as we saw in Week 14, Washington likes to claw their way back into things. This game may be closer than Cowboys fans want it to be given that WFT will likely be fighting for a chance to stay alive in the Wild Card coversation. But, we think the Cowboys will ultimately come out victorious 23-10, allowing them to improve to 5-0 against the NFC East.
