Philadelphia Eagles vs Dallas Cowboys Lines, Prediction & Pick for Week 16

Every week, the NFL schedule has a game or two that jumps of the page as a must watch and wager game. As we get closer to the end of the regular season, those important games seem to be greater in number as teams scramble to fill the limited number of spots left open. The Philadelphia Eagles and Dallas Cowboys are already playoff bound, but that does not lessen the importance of this game, as there is every chance that these two teams might well meet again at some stage of the postseason. The Cowboys will be looking to cool off the red-hot Eagles this Saturday, and with home field advantage, they are in as a 4 ½ point favorite in a game that they need to stay higher up in the NFC seedings. The point total for this one is set at 46 ½. Let’s take a closer look at the upcoming match between Eagles and Cowboys so you can bet on the NFL Odds.

Why bet on the Philadelphia Eagles

It has been a truly brilliant season for the Eagles, who are sitting at 13-1 and who are now the winners of the NFC East. The #1 seed certainly looks as though it will be theirs, too, and just one more win will see that they do end up as the top-seeded team in the NFC. It’s all straightforward enough for Philly, but things have become a little complicate with the news that QB Jalen Hurts will be out this weekend with a shoulder injury that the Eagles say is not overly concerning. This is going to be a tough enough task as it is, but tougher still when starting a backup on the road. The Eagles have not been great when playing in Dallas, going just 1-5 ATS in their last 6 trips there. Overall, they are just 3-7 ATS in their last 10 versus the Cowboys overall. They have seen the OVER hit in 7 of their last 9 games.

Why bet on the Dallas Cowboys

With Hurts forced to sit this one out, you do have to say that it’s advantage to the Cowboys, besides the obvious bump they’ll get from playing such a big game in the coy confines of their own building. They have certainly made their home a bit of a fortress and have won 7 in a row in the House that Jerry Built. That said, they need to find a way to shake off their stunning loss to the Jacksonville Jaguars last weekend, a victory that brought a 4-game win streak to a screeching halt. The Cowboys are just 2-4 ATS in their last 6 overall, and just 1-5-1 ATS in their last 7 home games played on a Saturday. The Cowboys have seen the OVER hot in 6 of their last 7 games overall.

Expert Pick and Final Score Prediction

For a fan’s perspective, it’s a little disappointing that we are not going to see Hurts on the field for this one. From a betting standpoint, though, that seems to make things a little bit easier. I like the Cowboys to get the win, and I believe they’ll cover in the process.
