PUBLIC BETTING: As of this writing, 71% of betting tickets are on the Cowboys to cover the spread while 79% of the money is also on Dallas.

INJURY REPORT: Tyron Smith (knee) is questionable for the Cowboys, as are Orlando Scandrick (back) and David Irving (concussion). Stephen Paea, meanwhile, is out for the year after suffering a knee injury back in October.

On the other side, Carson Wentz is done for the year after tearing his knee earlier this month, while Jason Peters, Jason Hicks and Darren Sproles are also out for the season. Stefen Wisniewski, meanwhile, has an ankle injury and is questionable.

OUR PREDICTION: The under has cashed in six of the last eight meetings between these two teams in Philadelphia. The under is also 10-1 in the Cowboys' last 11 games played in the month of December, is 7-1 in their last eight games overall, and is 18-6 in their last 24 road games.

On the other side, the under is a perfect 4-0 in the Eagles' last four home games versus a team with a winning road record. It is also 4-1 in their last five games coming off a win and 4-1 in their last five games when playing on Sunday following a Monday night game.
