Thanksgiving, one of the major holidays on the U.S. calendar where families get to enjoy good company and good food, However, that is not all as another Thanksgiving tradition for many is watching NFL football as a family. This year, to add more spice to it all, here is our NFL Thanksgiving Prediction for the Commanders vs Cowboys game.
For this Thanksgiving game, the Washington Commanders are travelling to the AT&T Stadium to take on the Dallas Cowboys. According to pre-game line providers, the bookies have Dallas as the favorite team to win with a -800 money line. In addition, the NFL betting is heavily on Dallas starting with a -11 spread and currently at -13.5.
This constant odd changing would be a challenge for not only those thinking about becoming a bookie. They would also be a challenge for veteran bookies.
For Dallas betting fans, there has been a lot of frustration with them. This is because despite winning their games, they have been missing the pointspread. In fact, they are currently 1-2 ATS for their past 12 Thanksgiving games. Will this Thanksgiving be any different or will they manage to beat the spread?
The Commanders on the other hand are not having a good season with a 4-7 record in the NFC East. In addition, they are on a 2-game losing streak after losing to 31-19 to the NY Giants. However, the problem is not just that they loss for a second time against them. It is that this time, they lost to a team that is full of players on the injury list. Needless to say, Commanders fans are hoping they can turn things around for this game.
NFL Thanksgiving Prediction and Analysis – Commanders vs Cowboys
The Dallas Cowboys rank second in the NFL East with a 7-3 record and 1.5 games behind the Eagles. In addition, they are playing after a big 33-10 victory over the Panthers last week. During the game, Dallas 311 yards of total offense and held Carolina to just 187 yards of total offense.
On the other hand, Washington did not do as well against their last game against the NY Giants. During the matchup, Washington got 403 yards of total offense and held New York to 292 yards of total offense. Once again, the problem lies mainly with the Commanders defense.
We expect Dallas to put a lot of pressure on QB, Sam Howell leading to many mistakes by the Commanders. In addition, Dallas will probably score early and often against Washington’s defense. Therefore, we predict the Dallas Cowboys will win and cover the spread with a final score of 30-27.
