NFL Football Betting Odds:
The Eagles fly into this weekend’s action sporting a 6-6 record that ranks them 2nd overall in the NFC East. Considering that Dallas is sitting on a 7-5 record, it’s safe to say that Philly still has a shot at winning the division this season. Granted, they’ve already suffered a loss to Dallas this season so they’ll need more than an upset road win this weekend to get the job done. On top of that, the NFL football betting odds aren’t giving Philadelphia much of a shot on the road this weekend. Looking over the numbers, it’s clear this will be a tight matchup. Right now the Eagles are scoring 21.5 per game, slightly higher than the 20.6 figure that the Cowboys are averaging. Defensively things are a bit more lopsided with the Cowboys 18.6 total beating the 22.2 that Philadelphia concedes per matchup.
Players to Watch: Carson Wentz (2,846 passing yards, 18 TD, 7 INT), Josh Adams (376 rushing yards, 2 TD, 0 F), and Zach Ertz (978 receiving yards, 6 TD, 93 REC).
As aforementioned, the Cowboys are 7-5 at the moment. Although they kicked the season off with a tumultuous start, they’ve since risen to the top of the division. Granted they were severely aided by an injury to Alex Smith, which crippled Washington’s chances of winning the division. Subsequently, Dallas has pounced on the opportunity Smith’s injury has created by posting a 4-game winning streak in the last month. Now they look to extend that win streak with a divisional win over the ailing Eagles. Since Philadelphia is 2-2 in their last 4, it’s safe to say that Dallas has a big edge over them.
Players to Watch: Dak Prescott (2,675 passing yards, 14 TD, 5 INT), Ezekiel Elliott (1,150 rushing yards, 6 TD, 4 F), and Cole Beasley (468 receiving yards, 2 TD, 48 REC).
