Betting Tip: Washington Redskins v. Dallas Cowboys – NFL – Monday Night Football – 10/27/2014

I know these two teams very well, as I am a die-hard Cowboys fan living in the Washington DC area. Yes, this is a division game, and yes, these two usually play each other tight – but this year is a bit different. This year’s Cowboys team is much better than in years past. They are proving to everyone that you can still win with an old-fashioned running game, despite the NFL becoming a passing league in recent years. They arguably have the best offensive line in the league. DeMarco Murray is averaging 79.1 yards per game before contact this season. That is just downright ridiculous. The running game allows them to control the clock, and open up the passing game. Romo, Murray, and Bryant are arguably the best QB-RB-WR trio in the game. The Cowboys defense has been playing much better than everyone expected, anchored by the play of Rolando McClain. LB Bruce Carter is expected to return for this game. There’s not much to say about the Redskins, really. They will be starting their third-string QB Colt McCoy. The Skins defense is actually decent against the run, but no team has been able to slow down the Cowboys running game, including Seattle – so I don’t see that changing tonight. The Skins horrible secondary doesn’t stand a chance against the Cowboys passing game. Although I’m confident that the Cowboys should cover the -9.5 spread, I went ahead and bought a few extra points to bring it down to a TD, just as extra insurance. Pick: Cowboys -7 at -155 (5Dimes).
