Time: 8:30 PM EST Monday October 27, 2014, ESPN / WatchESPN
The Cowboys just keep winning knocking off the Giants 31-21 in their latest to extend their winning streak to 6 games. They’ve been kind to bettors as well covering the spread in 5 of their last 6 and are 5-2 ATS overall on the season. In this Week 8 Monday Night game Dallas will host their NFC East division foe Washington Redskins who are only 2-5 straight up and against the point spread this season. History may be on the Redskins’ side with them being money in the bank covering in 7 of the last 8 games in this match-up.
An interesting thing to watch in this game will be the Dallas running game that leads the league with 159.7 yards per game against the Redskins’ run D that has allowed opponents 103.3 yards per game. The Skins rushing defense has been better than that stats suggests when you consider that the number is skewed with the Seattle Seahawks putting up 225 yards with mobile QB Russell Wilson accounting for 122 of the yards.
In two matchups last season the Cowboys were victorious in both games winning the game in Dallas 31-16, but were 1-1 versus the betting line.
In their last games the Redskins beat the Tennessee Titans 19-17 and the Cowboys beat the New York Giants 31-21.
