Eagles vs Cowboys NFL Week 14 Odds & Analysis

Written by on December 5, 2018

Check the current NFL standings and you will see that several division races are as good as over, with the likes of the LA Rams, the New England Patriots, and the New Orleans Saints all but guaranteed of a divisional crown. Not all the divisions are wrapped up nicely, though, as there are a couple that looks likely to go down to the final week. The NFC East falls very much into that category, although that could well change based on how things go this weekend. The Redskins are on a slide, which is no real surprise given that they have now lost 2 QB’s too broken legs, while the Giants are all but done.

That leaves the Philadelphia Eagles and the Dallas Cowboys battling it out for the top spot and an automatic playoff spot, and you have to say that it’s Dallas who have the inside track right now. The Eagles really need to go into Arlington and win this weekend if they want any kind of shot at trying to repeat as champions. The Dallas Cowboys are in as a 3 ½ point home favorite, while the point total has been set at 43.

Why bet on the Philadelphia Eagles?

The Eagles are sitting with a 6-6 record, which is certainly not what we expected from the reigning Super Bowl champs this season. It has been a disappointing season for this team, but there are some signs that they might be on the road to pulling this one out.

They come into this game boasting back to back wins, with both of those rivalries coming against divisional rivals. That now means that the Eagles and Cowboys have the same 3-1 record versus divisional foes, so it goes without saying that the winner here gets a definite leg up in trying to conquer the NFC East. The Eagles are just 1-3 on the road this season and failed to cover on the one occasion that they went into a game as the road underdog.

Why bet on the Dallas Cowboys?

If the Dallas Cowboys can win this one, they will be able to control their own destiny from this point forward. This is a team that suddenly looks to be brimming with confidence, winning 4 in a row to surge to the top of the division. That run was started with a win on the road in Philadelphia, but it was the most recent victory in this current surge that was perhaps the most surprising of all.

Eagles vs Cowboys is going to be a close one.

The Cowboys started their last game as a 7-point underdog to the visiting New Orleans Saints, but they put in a defensive masterclass to come away with the 13-10 win. The Cowboys have now covered in each of their last 4 games, as well as winning them SU.

Expert Pick & Final Score Prediction for Eagles vs Cowboys

The last 10 meetings between these two have been split right down the middle, with the road team usually coming up victorious. The Eagles are 4-1 SU in their last 5 visits to Dallas, as well as being 5-2 ATS in their last 7. I have then coming up short here, though, as I like the Cowboys to win.
