1 unit on Game Total UNDER 41 -110 (risk 1 to return 1.91) RESULT: LOSS
This is one of those season-ending games with nothing at stake. Redskins coach Jay Gruden said quarterback Kirk Cousins will get the start against the Cowboys. "All our guys are starting," Gruden said. "How I substitute throughout the course of the game will be dependent on how we're doing health-wise and the situation of the game." They have nothing to play for, so expect to see a boring game plan with a lot of backups flowing in fast, just to get the game over with quickly and out of town, pronto. That will mean a vanilla game plan for the Redskins. Dallas brings a boring game plan on offense every week because of injuries, dropping its last three games while scoring a total of 29 points and going four straight UNDER the total. Dallas has had a revolving door at quarterback with Tony Romo twice fracturing his collarbone. Backup QB Kellen Moore will make his second straight start after a dismal 16-6 loss to Buffalo last week. Cowboys star WR Dez Bryant was placed on injured reserve and will undergo surgery on his foot and ankle. Dallas is #31 in the NFL in points scored, just 16.8 per contest. At least the defense is having a strong campaign, #12 in yards while ranking #5 against the pass. All of which means a few field goals and few points. Play the UNDER in this one.
