Cowboys vs. Eagles Free Pick
After losing in Atlanta on Monday night will the Eagles bounce back with a win and a cover versus NFC East foe the Cowboys today at 4:25PM ET?
According to oddsmakers from online sports book Mybookie.ag, the Eagles are 5-point home favorites versus the Cowboys this afternoon and the total is sitting at 55 points.
Sam Bradford and the rest of the Eagle offense couldn't get anything going in the first half of their loss to the Falcons but they were virtually unstoppable in the second half. That's when they scored 21-of-their-24 total points as Bradford finally got into a rhythm running Chip Kelly's up-tempo offense. It's unlikely that the Eagles' running game will struggle today versus the Cowboys as badly as it did in the first half against the Falcons.
Speaking of the Cowboys, they'll be without Dez Bryant after the dynamic receiver suffered a broken foot last Sunday night in a win over the Giants. His absence will put more pressure on Tony Romo, who will have to lean on his running game and tight end Jason Witten to move the ball. The Cowboys are 1-4 against the spread in their last five games after accumulating more than 250 yards passing in their previous game.
