Week 4 of the 2022 NFL season includes an NFC East showdown between the Washington Commanders and Dallas Cowboys. The Commanders are coming off an embarrassing 24-8 loss to the Philadelphia Eagles last week after failing to score a single point until the fourth quarter.

Meanwhile, the Cowboys are now 2-0 without Dak Prescott this season following a 23-16 victory over the New York Giants on Monday Night Football. Dallas' backfield had a solid performance as Ezekiel Elliott and Tony Pollard combined for 178 rushing yards and a touchdown on 28 carries.

Updated (Sunday, Oct. 2, 9:35 a.m. EST): The Cowboys enter this contest as the home favorite on the moneyline and spread on FanDuel Sportsbook's updated NFL odds. This 1 p.m. ET clash also features a total of 41.5, which is among the lowest of the projected Week 4 totals.

Commanders vs Cowboys Prediction & Pick

While rivalries can go back and forth, that hasn't been the case for this NFC East feud. The Cowboys have succeeded more often than not in recent years, winning 13 of their last 18 meetings against the Commanders, including both of last season's matchups by a combined score of 83-34.

After how bad Washington looked over the weekend, it's hard to like them here, especially on the road. Dallas is far from perfect, but the offense still looks competent with Rush under center while the defense is allowing just 17.3 points per game (eighth-fewest in NFL).

Taking recent history and the Commanders' struggles on both sides of the ball into account, I expect a third straight Cowboys victory on Sunday.

Final Score Prediction: Cowboys: 27 | Commanders: 17

Commanders vs Cowboys Betting Trends

- Washington is 3-9 straight up in its last 12 games against Dallas.
- Dallas is 7-0 against the spread (ATS) in its last seven games against the NFC East.
- The total has hit the under in 10 of Washington's last 15 games.
- The total has hit the over in each of Dallas' last seven games against Washington.

Commanders vs Cowboys Best Bet

Most of the recent matchups between these two teams have seen quite a few points being scored. On top of the over hitting in each of their last seven meetings, the average total during that stretch is 52.9 points — over 10 points higher than this week's projection.

Playing each other seems to bring out some extra firepower, which is why I expect Washington and Dallas to combine for the over in this week's rivalry game.

Bet: Over 41.5 Points (-105)
