Philadelphia Eagles at Dallas Cowboys Overview

Philadelphia Eagles

The Eagles enter on a two-game winning streak capped off most recently by a 28-13 win on Sunday Night Football when they hosted the nicked-up Washington Redskins in Philadelphia. The Eagles generated a cover as 5.5-point chalk after failing to do so in their previous three outings.

Dallas Cowboys

The Cowboys come into this contest on a four-game winning streak both against the spread and straight-up. Dallas has not taken the field since last Thursday when they orchestrated one of the most impressive victories of the season. Dallas defeated the New Orleans Saints outright in Big D as a 7.5-point underdog by a score of 13-10 to end a ten-game Black and Gold winning streak.

Reasons to Avoid Philadelphia

Sunday night, national audiences watched Philadelphia play like the defending Super Bowl Champions they are supposed to be. Such an impression combined with talk of the Eagles materializing in the playoff race sets up takers to now take back the Eagles at an overvalued price. Such a propensity already exists solely already by the fact Philadelphia is the defending Super Bowl Champions. After all, the Birds have covered just four times this season.

Reasons to Back Dallas

The Cowboys will have had ten days to prepare for this contest and have been home for nearly three weeks. This narrative gives America’s Team an edge in rest and preparation. Furthermore, the Cowboys boast a prominent home field advantage as Dallas is 5-1 SU at home this season while the defending champs are just 2-3 SU on the road.

Eagles at Cowboys Prediction 12/09/2018

Dallas on the road will undoubtedly be a significant step-up for the Eagles in competitive quality compared to beating up on a snake-bitten Washington team on their own turf, last Sunday. The writing is on the wall with this one, as the Eagles went from a 5.5-point favorite last week (despite covering by 7.5 points over the number) to an initial four-point underdog this week before initial public action on Philadelphia pushed the champs to their present offering. This 9.5-point swing showcases the market's reluctance to buy into a repeat performance like we saw on Sunday Night by Philly and we will take such a position as well. Dallas wins and covers on its own field to keep its late-season surge flowing.
