Market Watch73% of the bets are on the Cowboys.
Romo's efficiency ranking is in the top 10, there isn't a better offense on third down, and their run game is steamrolling opposing defenses. Their own defense has improved to a middle of the pack unit and they are finding ways to disrupt drives at a surprising high rate. The only glaring weakness on paper is their pass rush, which sits in the bottom third of the league.
Can the Redskins do anything to cover this spread?
Their prospects don't look good. They've only covered two games all year and they are winless on the road in three contests. There are two categories that they rate high in - run defense and red zone defense. Everything else is mediocre or bad. Washington can't stop good passing teams, they do a poor job converting third downs, their special teams is still a disaster, and they have one of the worst turnover differentials in the NFL.
I can't find a good reason to back the Redskins, even with a 10 point spread. I'd consider making a play on the Cowboys, but I'm not a fan of laying double digit chalk either - especially in an NFC East divisional game. Therefore, it's a pass for me.
