Dallas was a 9-point choice over the Washington Football Team to open betting on the Week 16 SNF game, but Cowboys money pushed the line up to 10.5 at most sportsbooks, including DraftKings. For favorite bettors, Cowboys -10 is available at FanDuel as of Thursday.

The skinny: The Cowboys, who hold a three-game lead over second-place Philadelphia in the NFC East, can clinch the division with a win or tie over COVID-racked Washington in the JerryDome.

Facts: Two weeks ago, the Cowboys raced to a 24-0 lead over WFT in D.C. before hanging on for a 27-20 victory. But Dallas’ offense struggled, with QB Dak Prescott having his second worst game of the season based on a passer rating of 58.8, throwing two INTs and getting sacked four times.

Dallas wasn’t much better on the attack in a 21-6 win over the Giants in the Meadowlands last Sunday, scoring its only two TDs on short fields (13- and 29-yard drives) and getting a field goal after taking over at the NYG 46.

Washington QB Taylor Heinicke also had his second worst game of 2021 (55.7) in that game against the Cowboys two weeks ago, then sat out Tuesday night in COVID protocol while also resting an injured knee. But he’s been cleared to start Sunday night.

In Washington’s 27-17 loss in Philly on Tuesday, a game in which they blew an early 10-0 lead behind emergency fill-in QB Garrett Gilbert, it played without 2020 All-Pro guard Brandon Scherff. Football Teamers have gradually been making their way off the COVID list.

In addition, a host of defenders were out because of COVID protocol, which contributed to the Eagles getting 238 yards on the ground, 75 more than WFT yielded in any other game. And also in the game, two key DBs who did play were injured and are listed as questionable — William Jackson (calf) and Landon Collins (ankle).

WFT Vs. Cowboys Analysis And Pick

The Cowboys defense has more than picked up the slack for a sagging offense with four turnovers in each of their past three games.

But with the offense underperforming, WFT seems a logical as a double-digit pick.

Not necessarily now that top RB Antonio Gibson is questionable with a toe injury that kept him out of practice Wednesday. And with Washington’s playoff hopes all but snuffed out with last week’s loss and playing with only four-days’ rest, the Cowboys are the way to go.

Pick: Cowboys 28, WFT 10

Last week: 9-7 ATS, 10-6 SU
Season total: 106-115-3 (.480) ATS; 136-87-1 (.610) SU
