Following a 3-5 start the Dallas Cowboys were written off for dead. As usual Dallas was a bet on NFL favorite to win the NFC East. In the same way there is a reason that they are called “America’s Team.” More emphatically the Cowboys get more love than any other franchise in pro football. Despite the hype the Dallas offense has been sluggish most of the season. Quarterback Dak Prescott is respected but was not getting a lot of help. But the one thing that Dallas has had from week ne is a strong defense.

Stats to Consider
The Eagles have not been the best betting value as a road dog. Consider that Philadelphia has covered just three of their last eight getting points on the road. Seven of their last nine as road pups have gone over the total. Along the same lines the Cowboys have been a subpar betting value as a home chalk. Specifically, Dallas has covered just eight of their last 20 laying the lumber at AT&T Stadium. Five of their last eight in that role went over the total.
Team vs. Team
Dallas has had the edge over Philadelphia in this head to head series. To show the Cowboys have covered seven of their last 11 against the Eagles. Three of the last four between these teams have gone under the total. But at Dallas the Eagles have actually had the advantage. Consider that Philadelphia has covered five of their last seven games at Dallas. Three of the last five in this series at AT&T Stadium have gone under the total.
Matchup to Watch
Account of their upset win over Dallas do the Cowboys face the Bet on NFL possibility of a letdown. Naturally the defending Super Bowl champion Eagles will be fighting for their playoff lives. For this reason, they rate the matchup edge.
