Eagles vs. Cowboys Free Pick
NFC East rivals will clash on Sunday Night Football tonight when the struggling Cowboys host the Eagles at 8:30PM ET.
According to oddsmakers from online sports book Mybookie.ag, the Cowboys are 2.5-point home underdogs versus the Eagles while the over/under currently sits at 44.5 points.
The Eagles enter play tonight with a 3-4 straight up record and are 3-4 against the spread, while the Cowboys are now 2-5 on the year and just 2-5 at the betting window.
A lot has been made about Chip Kelly's offensive struggles this year but lost in that discussion is the fact that Philadelphia's defense was playing significantly better heading into the bye last week. Granted, the numbers don't show that the Eagles are playing well on that side of the ball, but their front four dominated Eli Manning and the Giants in Week 6 and should do so again tonight versus Matt Cassel. Speaking of Cassel, he hasn't looked much better than Brandon Weeden and despite the return of Dez Bryant, the Cowboys remain stagnant on offense. The road team is 7-1 against the spread in the last eight meetings between these two teams. Back the road favorite.
