The Dallas Cowboys had a very good weekend. They opened it up on Saturday night with a win over the Detroit Lions. Of course, that win was controversial and has the sports world buzzing about the refereeing in the NFL. The Cowboys were also on the short end of a critical penalty call in that game, but managed to win and move to 11-5 on the year.
Then on Sunday, their weekend got even better. The Philadelphia Eagles dumped their game against the Arizona Cardinals and gave control of the NFC East to the Cowboys. Now all the Cowboys have to do to grab the NFC East division crown and become the number two seed in the NFC is win against the Washington Commanders in Week 18.
According to DraftKings Sportsbook, Dallas is a 13.5-point favorite over the Commanders.
The Commanders season has quickly circled the drain, and it is almost certain this game will be Ron Rivera’s farewell in Washington. The Commanders are 4-12 on the year and have lost seven in a row.
Still, it’s a divisional game. It’s on the road on grass, and that has been the Cowboys kryptonite this year.
Would you give the 13.5 points and bet on Dallas?
