Cowboys vs. Commanders Prediction and Odds

To many people, this is the greatest NFL rivalry in the history of the sport and therefore is one of the biggest rivalries in the history of the sport.

It started in 1960 when the Commanders – known as the Redskins at the time – convincingly beat the Cowboys 26-14. That was a rare win for the Commanders at the time, though, who finished their first season with a dismal record of 1-9-2.

The sides have played 125 times since, with the Cowboys pulling ahead fairly comfortably to 76-47-2 in the all-time series.

The rivalry is aided by the fact that these are indisputably 2 of the most successful teams in the history of football, having won 32 division titles between them and 8 Super Bowls.

That success is only aided in the modern era by the fact that these are currently 2 of the wealthiest franchises and, therefore 2 of the wealthiest franchises ever.

The first season in which they met was an anomaly for being the only year in which the sides didn’t share a division, and ever since that initial season, where they played just once, they have played twice a season.

Cowboys vs. Commanders Odds and Statistics

These sides have met in the postseason twice, and on both occasions, Washington came out on top, showing that even if they haven’t won the majority of games in the series, they know how to bring their A-game when it really matters.

These 2 postseason matches came in 1972 and 1983, in which Washington won 26-3 and 31-17, respectively.

However, the Cowboys hold the record for the largest win in the series, which happened as recently as 2021 when they trounced Washington 56-14. The best attempt that the Commanders have had at matching that thrashing was in 2005, when they won 35-7, so they’re still some way off reaching the levels of dominance over the course of a match that the Cowboys showed last year.

The longest win streak goes to the Cowboys too, who won 10 successive games between 1997 and 2002. The Commanders’ best attempt is a way off that, with 4 consecutive wins between 1986 and 1988. They’ll be looking to start a new streak attempt during the Cowboys vs. Commanders 01/08/23 fixture.

Cowboys vs. Commanders NFL Betting Tips: The Season So Far

Cowboys

The Cowboys have been on fire this season, racking up a record of 11-4, but that form seems to be dying down just as the business end of the season approaches. By no measure have they looked poor, but a combination of fatigue and complacency means they’re performing far below the heights they showed at the beginning of the season.

The postseason spot is already wrapped up so it’s not necessarily too much to worry about, but they’d much prefer to have some momentum going into crunch time.

Commanders

The Commanders are just about maintaining a positive record which precariously stands at 7-7-1. Things would be looking a lot rosier if it wasn’t for some very questionable refereeing decisions in recent weeks, but the playoffs are still possible.

Ideally, they wouldn’t have to deal with such hurdles that are out of control but losing in the past couple of games may have taken the wind out of their sails just as they need to be at their best.

Prediction For Cowboys vs. Commanders 01/08/23
