The Houston Texans vs. Detroit Lions Thanksgiving NFL matchup is underway, but don’t fret, we still have Washington Football Team vs. the Dallas Cowboys on deck for later today.

For those still looking to make a play on Washington vs. the Cowboys, let’s take a look at odds from DraftKings Sportsbook as of Thursday at 1:15 p.m. ET.

NFL Odds: Washington vs. Cowboys

4:30 p.m. ET | FOX

  • Spread: Cowboys -2.5
  • Over/Under: 46

The Washington vs. Cowboys spread was Dallas -1 in Thanksgiving lookahead lines last week, but ballooned to -3 following the Cowboys’ straight-up win over Minnesota on Sunday.

In fact, that’s where the number sat for most of the week until the hours leading up to today’s kick off.

However, growing liability on Washington — either from lopsided money or late action from respected bettors — has finally forced the hands of sportsbooks across the market.

After holding off for as long as possible, oddsmakers moved off the key number of 3 shortly after noon on Thursday. While just a “half-point move,” this adjustment is significant, anytime a spread moves to 2.5 or 3.5, it’s extremely notable from a market perspective.

Here’s why the Washington vs. Cowboys line move is so crucial to NFL bettors.
