Either a playoff spot or a division title will be on the line when these two bitter rivals meet in football betting. Here is a look at this matchup between two of the best teams in the NFC.
NFL betting last week had the Philadelphia Eagles getting past the Denver Broncos 30-27 although they did not cover the football betting odds. The Eagles got a 28-yard field goal from David Akers with just seconds remaining to win. The Eagles had a 27-10 lead in the game but had to drive late for the game winning field goal. The Eagles might also be playing for a first round bye in the playoffs depending upon what Minnesota does. In last week’s game, quarterback Donovan McNabb threw for 322 yards and three TDs while tight end Brent Celek had 121 yards receiving and one TD. It was the sixth straight win overall for the Eagles. Philadelphia has set a franchise record for most points in a season with 429. They are averaging 28.6 points per game this NFL betting season. Last week the defense gave up some points late so that could be a concern in this matchup against the potent Dallas offense.
The Cowboys and Eagles have split their last ten meetings overall and against the NFL betting pointspread. Earlier this season in Philadelphia, the Cowboys got a 20-16 road football betting victory. This series has seen the road team have some success. The Eagles covered last year at Dallas, losing by four points 41-37 as 6.5 point NFL betting underdogs. The teams have split their last four meetings at Dallas. Three of those four games went under the NFL betting total.
The Eagles have been a very good road team in recent years. This season they are a profitable 5-2 against the NFL betting odds on the road. Dallas is 4-3 at home this football betting season so something has to give in this game. Dallas can definitely put points on the board and despite the trends in this series and the earlier matchup; this game should have a chance to go over the total. Dallas is led by quarterback Tony Romo and wide receiver Miles Austin and a trio of running backs, Marion Barber, Felix Jones and Tashard Choice.
