Washington at Dallas

1 unit on Game Total UNDER 53 -110 (risk 1 to return 1) RESULT: WIN
The "game of the year" last week between Dallas and the Denver Broncos saw nearly 100 points scored. That game garnered a ton of attention and it has pushed the total a bit higher here for this one vs. Washington. This is a huge division rivalry game, and these types of games are often played with a lot of defensive intensity. There is more at stake here, as the loser will suffer their fourth loss, so I do expect this one to be played tough in the trenches. Last year these teams played to totals of 47 and 48, so there is definitely some wiggle room as the total is set too high. Washington has not scored a ton of points in any game this season as RGII continues to struggle to get healthy after knee surgery. The Skins defense has allowed fewer points in consecutive games, and is now coming off a bye. Dallas has shown the ability to clamp down on defense after allowing 30+ in their previous game, and have gone 8-2 to the UNDER in their last 10 after having done so. Under Mike Shanahan, the Redskins are 17-7 to the UNDER when facing great offensive teams (those like Dallas averaging over 5.6 yards per play). Play this one UNDER the total.
