Washington vs Cowboys Prop Bets Tonight

1. Dak Prescott - Interceptions: Over 0.5 (+100)

It's become clear that the Cowboys are going to prioritize the passing attack no matter what the score may be. Dallas is averaging the fourth-most passing attempts per game (38.4) and it has caused quarterback Dak Prescott to turn the ball over quite a bit. The two-time Pro Bowler has thrown six interceptions over his last seven games, which includes 2 picks against this same Washington defense in Week 13. In fact, Washington has posted 3 interceptions over its last two games. Prescott's recent string of slow starts could cause this prop bet to cash before halftime.

2. Michael Gallup - Receiving Yards: Over 46.5 (-110)

Wide receiver Michael Gallup should have no trouble picking this Washington defense apart for a big game on Sunday night. Volume will not be an issue as the fourth-year pro has seen at least 8 targets in four of his last five games. Gallup is set to face a Washington defense that has given up the fourth-most receiving yards to opposing WRs this season (2,475) as well as 10.8 yards per completion (No. 25 in NFL). Keep in mind he easily cleared this line the last time he faced this defense when he racked up 60 yards on 5 receptions back in Week 13.

3. Terry McLaurin - Longest Reception: Over 22.5 (-102)

Washington rosters one of the best deep threats in the league in wide receiver Terry McLaurin. The third-year pro averages 13.9 yards per reception in his career and hauled in a dazzling 46-yard catch against the Philadelphia Eagles in Week 15. He has a great opportunity to keep his momentum going against a Dallas defense that has allowed the fifth-most 20-plus yard passing plays in the NFL (52). McLaurin may also be covered by cornerback Trevon Diggs, who is known to give up the occasional long ball given his aggressive mindset. Back Scary Terry to catch the Cowboys sleeping at least one time in this game.
