The Dallas Cowboys are back on the national stage, as they play host to the Washington Redskins on Monday night. Surprisingly, the Redskins lead the NFC East with a 2-0 record currently, but that didn't help them with the odds makers. Despite the better record, the Redskins are underdogs.
Many gambling sites didn't have a line listed until recently for the Dallas/Washington game, with the uncertainty surrounding Tony Romo and his status for the game. Romo, though, declared himself good to go, and will suit up to start at quarterback in Dallas' home opener.
Dallas, as aforementioned, are the favorites tonight, with 5Dimes and BetOnline listing Dallas as three point favorites, while bodog and topbet list the Cowboys as three and a half point favorites.
The over/under fluctuates slightly, with 5Dimes and BetOnline listing it at 44.5, bodog listing it at 45 and topbet listing it at 45.5. As the trends on OddsShark point out, Dallas has gone over on 14 of their last 15 contests, making the over bet look pretty appealing, especially at 44.5.
The game, just like any other Monday Night Football game, can be found on ESPN, with kickoff scheduled for 7:30 p.m. CDT. Mike Tirico, Jon Gruden and Ron Jaworski will, for better or for worse, call the game.
