Why Bet The Philadelphia Eagles To Beat The Cowboys

The Philadelphia Eagles improved to 4-2 SU and 4-2 ATS this season after stealing a win against the previously unbeaten Vikings last week. They average 25.7 points per game (9th) and allow 14.7 points per game (3rd).

The Eagles average 210.7 passing yards per game (29th). QB Carson Wentz (1324 yards, 8 TDs & 3 INTs) completed 16 of 28 passes for 138 yards, one touchdown and two interceptions against the Vikings. It was Wentz worst game of the season; yet they got the W.

"He really focused in, took the coaching well," said Eagles head coach Doug Pederson of Wentz. "When he kind of calms his feet…timing and accuracy and all that picks up."

WR Jordan Matthews (25 rec, 354 yards, 2 TDs) is the leading receiver on the team, but he hasn’t scored a touchdown over the last three weeks. Philadelphia averages 111.5 rushing yards per game (17th). Ryan Mathews (67 car, 262 yards, 3 TDs) hasn’t found the end zone since week two.

Philadelphia owns the second best total defense in the NFL. They allow 204.0 passing yards per game (5th) and 102.7 rushing yards per game (14th. The Eagles have recorded 20 sacks this season (4th).

Why Bet The Dallas Cowboys To Beat The Eagles

The Dallas Cowboys rested last week. They sit at the top of the NFC East with a 5-1 SU record and 5-0-1 ATS. They average 26.5 points per game (7th) and 17.8 allow points per game (7th).

Dallas averages 240.3 passing yards per game (19th). QB Dak Prescott (1486 yards, 7 TDs & 1 INTs) has out performed all expectations after the Cowboys drafted the rookie in the fourth round this past offseason. He has completed 68.7% of his passes and posted a 103.9 passer rating.

WR Cole Beasley (33 rec, 390 yards, 3 TDs) is his number one target. WR Dez Bryant (11 rec, 150 yards, 1 TD) will be active after three weeks without seeing any action. The Cowboys average 161.2 rushing yards per game (1st).

Behind the best offensive line in the NFL, RB Ezekiel Elliott (137 car, 703 yards, 5 TDs) is the leading rushing in the NFL. He averages 5.1 yards per carry. What makes a great NFL lineman? Talent, practice, coaching & a smart diet.

“I just think he’s a complete back,” coach Jason Garrett said of Ezekiel Elliot. “He’s certainly learning the game. But he’s demonstrated throughout his college career and in the first six games of this season that he can do a lot of different things that we ask him to do. He can run inside, he can run outside, he can block, he can catch, and I think that goes to what his running style is. He’s a guy when he gets out in space he clearly has the quickness, speed and explosiveness to go the distance with it but again he can run inside and be physical.

The Cowboys have the 9th-ranked total defense in the NFL. They give up 266.0 passing yards per game (21 st ) and 92.2 rushing yards per game (10th). Dallas has 11 sacks this season (24th).

Betting Trends For this Matchup:

  • Philadelphia is 5-2 ATS in its last 7 games
  • Philadelphia is 5-2 SU in its last 7 games
  • Philadelphia is 2-4 ATS in its last 6 games when playing Dallas
  • Philadelphia is 4-1 ATS in its last 5 games when playing on the road against Dallas
  • Philadelphia is 5-1 SU in its last 6 games when playing on the road against Dallas

Expert ATS Pick & Final Score Prediction

The Eagles have lost two of their last three games with subpar play from Wentz at quarterback. Meanwhile, the Cowboys have shown no signs of slowing down, as their ground game is by far the best in the NFL and Prescott continues to take care of the football.

Dez Bryant will be back for Dallas who had an extra week to prepare for this tilt

My final score prediction is Philadelphia 23, Dallas 27.
