One of the biggest rivalries in the NFL is going to be played on Sunday Night Football and we are here to analyze the Dallas Cowboys vs Philadelphia Eagles odds for you. Along with that, we will explore the current betting lines and will locate the best betting opportunities for that match. Check out our picks and predictions below.
Our Cowboys vs Eagles prediction on the spread
The current line is DAL -3.5 @ -110 meaning that the bookies think the Cowboys are about 1 point better than the Eagles on a neutral field. It is indeed hard to differentiate between the two teams because their stats are somewhat similar. For points per game, we got 24.5 for Dallas and 21.5 for the Eagles. Their yards per play stats are identical at 6.4 and 6.2 respectively.
Right now, it looks like Dallas is the better team as they managed to win their last game on the road and Philadelphia lost at home after scoring only 11 points. This may be a little bit misleading because an argument can be made that the Cowboys played at a venue where road teams typically don’t have many troubles. Also, the Eagles may have been looking ahead to this game last week.
We think we have to go with the team getting the points and we are betting PHI +3.5 @ -110.
The best betting prediction that we have on the Dallas vs Philadelphia game
The Dallas Cowboys odds to win the 1st quarter by -0.5 @ +100 attract us here. Philly averages 5.0 points in the 1st quarter this season while the hosts from Dallas average 10.5. Furthermore, Dallas is 5th in the league in possession time in the 1st quarter. This means they have more opportunities to score in comparison to their rivals who are 18th in time of possession in 1st quarters.
Add to that the fact that Dallas is playing at home so it’s only normal if they start strong. Our best bet is Dallas -0.5 in the 1st quarter @ +100.
Players to watch in the DAL vs PHI match
Ezekiel Elliott: Zeke finally bounced back in week 2 when he faced the Chargers’ defense. The running back gained 71 yards on the ground and scored a touchdown. Still, the star was outgained by Tony Pollard (109 rushing yards) and we want to see if this trend continues.
Jalen Hurts: The QB didn’t have a great outing against that stingy 49ers’ defense in week 2. He threw for only 190 yards at a 52.2% completion rate. For the 1st-year starter, it will be vital to be able to shake off bad games and improve on a weekly basis. The Cowboys’ defense isn’t the best in the league but it’s also not the worst.
