Betting market: Despite getting only 42% of the action at the time of writing, the Colt McCoy-led Redskins have moved from +7.5/+8 to the key number of +7 at many books.

We haven’t triggered any sharp action indicators as of yet, but Washington is receiving 60% of spread dollars.

The over/under is too low for 70% of the folks who’ve bet on the total, yet the line has dropped from 41 to 40.5 (see live betting data here). — Mark Gallant

Did you know? Dallas is 3-5 straight up and 1-7 against the spread on Thanksgiving since 2010 (the season Jason Garrett took over as head coach). In seven of these eight Thanksgiving Day games, the Cowboys were coming off a straight-up win in their previous game. — Evan Abrams

McCoy has started 25 games in his career, throwing 27 touchdowns and 23 interceptions. He is just 7-18 straight up in his starts and 8-16-1 ATS, per our Bet Labs data.

As an underdog of 7 or more points, McCoy is 2-7 SU and 3-6 ATS. — John Ewing
