According to the oddsmakers at BetDSI, the Cowboys are favored at home in this game, as they are getting odds of -4 points against the Eagles. The over/under total for the game is listed at 42.5 points right now. The road team has actually won six straight in this series and covered in four straight. These two have hit the under in four of their last six encounters.
The Cowboys are coming off the bye week, but riding high on a five-game win streak entering this game. Dallas is 5-1 on the season and 5-1 against the spread. They are 4-2 with the under this year as they have a defense that is holding opponents to just 17.8 points and 366.7 yards per game. They have been especially tough against the run, holding opponents to only 92.2 yards per game. Offensively, Dallas is putting up 26.5 points and 408.8 yards per game despite starting a rookie at QB and RB. Ezekiel Elliott has been a stud thus far, rushing for 703 yards and five touchdowns while Dak Prescott has thrown for 1,486 yards and seven touchdowns with just one interception. Prescott could get Dez Bryant back tonight as well. Bryant has been battling a knee injury, but he is probable to play after missing the last three games. He has 11 receptions for 150 yards and a touchdown this season.
After a 3-0 start to the year, the Eagles dropped games to the Lions and Redskins. However, they bounced back last week with a 21-10 win over the unbeaten Vikings at home. Philly is now 4-2 on the year, 4-2 against the spread and 3-3 with the over/under total. Philly has been all about defense, as the unit is allowing just 14.7 points and 327.5 yards per game this year. They have forced 12 turnovers and have 20 sacks as a group as well. Things started pretty well on offense this year, but Philly is now averaging just 332.2 yards per game. Carson Wentz started pretty hot, but has cooled off in recent weeks. He has 1,324 yards and eight touchdowns on the year with just three interceptions, but all three INTs have come in the last three games and he has completed under 60 percent of his passes for just 317 yards over his last two starts. Philly could use more from its run game, which has just 669 yards this season. Ryan Mathews is the leading rusher with 262 yards and three scores.
