Washington Commanders at Dallas Cowboys Betting Pick – Thanksgiving Day

It’s a Thanksgiving Day clash of Week 12 in the National Football League, the Washington Commanders are set to face off against the Dallas Cowboys. The Commanders, currently struggling with a 4-7 record, are fresh off a home defeat to the New York Giants. Positioned third in the NFC East standings, Washington is just ahead of the Giants.

On the other hand, the Dallas Cowboys, seeking their third consecutive victory, recently dominated the Carolina Panthers on the road, bringing their season record to 7-3 and securing the second spot in the NFC East. The Dallas Cowboys are a massive favorite at -11.

Cowboys in Hot Pursuit in the NFC

The Dallas Cowboys are in pursuit of their third consecutive victory and their fifth in the last six games. Their recent three wins have seen them amass an impressive 125 total points, solidifying their standing as the second-highest scoring team in the league with an average of 30.2 points per game.

Quarterback Dak Prescott, a former Mississippi State standout, has thrown for over 2,600 yards and 19 touchdowns. CeeDee Lamb, surpassing the 1,000-yard mark for the season and boasting five touchdowns, adds significant firepower to the Cowboys’ aerial assault.  Tony Pollard has handled the running back duties. Pollard scored a touchdown in the most recent win over Carolina.

Dallas, averaging 255.6 passing yards per game, is set to enjoy three consecutive home games against the Seahawks and Eagles following their clash with the Commanders.

Commanders Coming in as Big Underdogs

Maintaining his role as the starting quarterback for the Commanders is Sam Howell. While not the primary issue for the team, Howell’s contributions haven’t significantly bolstered their performance. With 18 passing touchdowns and 12 interceptions this season, Howell’s most alarming statistic is the staggering 51 sacks he has endured.

The Commanders’ running game, led by Brian Robinson Jr, has room for improvement, with Robinson Jr averaging just 50.7 yards per game. Despite scoring five rushing touchdowns this season, Robinson Jr’s output suggests untapped potential.  Robinson may have to carry more of the load if Antonio Gibson cannot return in this game. Gibson missed the game against the Giants.

Terry McLaurin, the team’s top receiver, has struggled to achieve elite receiver numbers, registering only two touchdowns, while Jahan Dotson leads the team with four. Logan Thomas, Tight end for Washington has three

Facing the Cowboys at the AT&T Stadium, the Commanders will return home to host the Miami Dolphins on December 3rd before entering their bye week. Post-bye, Washington’s schedule includes matchups against the Rams, Jets, 49ers, and another showdown with the Cowboys.

Cowboys Smash Visitors on Thanksgiving Day

In this matchup, all signs point to Dallas dominance. Washington just cannot protect the quarterback, and take care of the football. The run game has not helped the cause. The defense is not good enough, and Dallas seems to be playing great football. This game is all Cowboys. Take the Dallas Cowboys -11, as they win the game 35-14 on Thanksgiving Day. Enjoy the game and best of luck!
