As bad as the NFC East is somebody has to win it. This leads to Sunday Night’s NFL betting showdown of the Eagles and Cowboys. Dallas is fielding its worst defense since its 1960 expansion season. While Philadelphia can’t seem to get out of its own way. Dallas is down to third-string at quarterback. And seems to have quit on new coach Mike McCarthy. Eagles coach Doug Pederson is no genius. As well as an accidental Super Bowl champion. In Sunday’s matchup, he’ll be holding the better cards. But can he take advantage of a demoralized and outmanned Dallas team?

Dallas Cowboys at Philadelphia Eagles SBG Odds Overview
At the beginning of the season, the Cowboys got plenty of sportsbook hype. Mike McCarthy’s arrival was the reason why. McCarthy is currently under intense fire from fans. However, owner Jerry Jones maintains he has his man. Public gambling will flow towards the Eagles. Squares are terrified of Dallas lacking actual quarterbacks. Even sharps are hesitant to take the Cowboys. Especially with such poor morale.
Dallas Cowboys Team Overview
Admittedly the Cowboys are in free fall. Dallas has lost four of their last five. As a result, the Cowboys are 2-5 straight up, 0-7 against the spread, with four overs. A bad Washington team humiliated Dallas 25-3 on Sunday for easy money. Under the total of 44.5 was a cinch as well.
Overall, the Cowboys rank third for total offense and 19th for scoring. Defensively they are 27th overall and dead last for points allowed. Of major concern was that the offensive numbers were built up when Dak Prescott was under center. They stand to rapidly erode without their top two quarterbacks.
Philadelphia Eagles Team Overview
Almost as bad are the Eagles. Philadelphia needed a furious late rally to get past the Giants 22-21. Specifically, that game was on Thursday, October 22. Philadelphia failed to cover as 5-point home favorites with under a total of 44.5 paying as well. Now the Eagles are 2-4-1 straight up, 2-5 vs. the line, with four overs. Philadelphia “leads” the NFC East by default.
In sum, the Eagles rank 25th for total offense and 24th for scoring. Defensively Philadelphia ranks 12th overall and 22nd for points allowed. Philly ranks a dismal 29th for turnovers and 23rd for takeaways.
