NFC East and the playoff home field advantage are up for grabs in this #DALvsPHI division rivalry.
Tied at 9-4, the Eagles and Cowboys met recently at Thanksgiving where Dallas limped away from a 33-10 defeat.
That’s certainly part of the reason the Eagles are the -3 (-120) favourite on Sunday, but the fans aren’t as confident in a Philadelphia win – they are 50/50.
73% of bettors on the MoneyLine are taking the Cowboys too.
(Having 10 days to prepare as opposed to 4 might be just what they need to undermine the Eagles.)
Philly fell to the Seahawks in Week 14 after an intense battle, but in the end Sanchez’s offense couldn’t break through the SuperBowl level defense.
The Eagles will likely attempt a repeat performance of having Bradley Fletcher and Cary Williams all over Dallas’ wide receiver Bryant. He didn’t seem to like that too much at Thanksgiving, lashing out and calling the Eagles “cheap” in a post-game interview.
But Dallas is feeling pretty hot right now after steamrolling my poor Bears last week 41-28.
(Perhaps if we had got our shit together before the 4th quarter we could have had a chance. But more on the Bears in the MNF pick.)
Expect Marco DeMurray to play a big role in the Cowboys offense against the Eagles – and if the cornerbacks could keep up the great work from last week that would put another nail in the Philly coffin too.
One of the greatest weaknesses for Dallas this year has been it’s pass rush game.
Some accusations have been thrown the way of the recovering Anthony Spencer and DeMarcus Lawrence, so right about now would be the perfect time to prove their critics wrong.
It seems the Cowboys are getting desperate with the issue, and are debating about letting Kenneth Boatright practice his runs against the Eagles on Sunday. But he’s still uncertain at this point.
This Cowboys vs Eagles matchup has a total set at 55, but 65% of bettors still think it’s going to go OVER.
With the palpable hatred between theses 2 teams and their fans, I don’t doubt the total is going to get pushed higher in this epic contest.
