Washington Redskins (+3) at Dallas Cowboys (-3); Total 45
The betting line for this game the past few days was the Cowboys a -4.5 favorite. Approaching game time the line sits as the Cowboys a -3 favorite. What is the reason for the line movement? It’s is not because of Tony Romo not playing. It was confirmed yesterday that Cowboys QB Tony Romo will start tonight’s game vs. Washington after being injured last week. Whether Tony Romo finishes the game remains to be seen. This is not Dallas’ only injury concerns. Cowboys WR Miles Austin is injured and will NOT play in the Monday nighter. Cowboys WR Dez Bryant is banged up and is questionable for tonight’s game (should play but won’t be 100%). And Cowboys RB Felix Jones (shoulder) was limited in practice all week and will not be 100% if he plays. When I see a lot of injuries I like to look at the total. With a banged up Cowboys squad and a Rex Grossman lead Redskins team playing on the road in Cowboy Stadium I don’t see this game being a high scoring affair. Points should be at a premium. Our pick for the week #3 Monday Night Game is UNDER 45 points at Bodog Online Sportsbook.
