When the Dallas Cowboys play the Washington Commanders on Sunday, we’ll all be rooting for a Cowboys victory, but there is a way to add a little more spice to the game. Prop bets!
DraftKing Sportsbook has a dizzying array of interesting prop bets for the game, so we’ll take a look at a few to try and get an idea of how the game may go.
All the betting odds at North American sportsbooks are based around a bet of $100. A plus sign (positive odds) indicates your profit on a bet of $100, while a minus sign (negative odds) indicates the amount you would have to bet for a $100 profit.
So, a +200 line means that, should the sports bettor win, they receive $200 profit for every $100 they wager (plus their original $100 back). If the wager had a minus sign (i.e. -200), it would mean that the sports bettors will earn $100 profit for every $200 they wager.
Here are the bets to take.
CeeDee Lamb over 93.5 yards receiving (-115)
It just feels like easy money. When you combine how well CeeDee Lamb has been playing lately along with the leaky Washington secondary, and a 100+ yard day is easily imaginable. The Cowboys need this game badly, and Lamb is their best offensive weapon. He’ll get plenty of targets.
Dak Prescott under 11.5 rushing yards (-120)
We’re taking the under here. Prescott tends to run more when the game is competitive or Dallas is in a shootout, and when the pass rush is coming at him. The Cowboys should get control of this game early and Prescott won’t feel the need to use his legs.
Terry McLaurin over 59.5 passing yards (-115)
McLaurin will be the weapon the Cowboys fear the most, but he is also very capable of breaking off some chunk plays even if the defense is slanted toward him. We bet he gets behind the secondary a couple of times.
Jake Ferguson under 3.5 catches (+130)
It doesn’t make sense that the Commanders would hold Jake Ferguson to under 3.5 catches, but in their last meeting on Thanksgiving Ferguson only had one catch. Seeing that nice payout, we’re taking a chance.
