Top Thanksgiving Day 2020 football predictions
One part of the 2020 Thanksgiving Day football parlay we’ll give away: The model is backing the over (46) to hit when Dallas takes on Washington at 4:30 p.m. ET. The Cowboys struggled offensively after quarterback Dak Prescott suffered a devastating ankle injury, but backup Andy Dalton proved he’s more than capable of leading Dallas’ offense in last week’s upset over the Vikings. Dalton completed 68.8 percent of his passes for 203 yards and three touchdowns.
Washington’s offense has also come to life in recent weeks with veteran quarterback Alex Smith under center. Smith has thrown for 325 or more yards in two of his last three starts, which has helped Washington score 20 or more points in each of its last three outings.
The over has also fared well in this NFC East rivalry over the years. In fact, the total has gone over in eight of the last 10 meetings between Dallas and Washington. In addition, the over has hit in each of the last five times the Cowboys have hosted Washington. SportsLine’s model says the over (46) has plenty of value since that hits in more than 50 percent of simulations.
