Spread: Cowboys minus-10
Public consensus pick: 51 percent picked Eagles
SuperContestants: 73-55 in favor of Eagles
Public perception: The Eagles are a league-worst 1-9-1 ATS, yet they're getting bet, which just shows how much the stock on the Cowboys has gone down.
Wiseguys' view: The Cowboys do not have a home-field advantage (which makes you wonder why the oddsmakers set this line so high if not giving them a few more points for being at home), as they're 0-5 ATS in Jerry's World this season and 2-11 ATS the past two years.
Tuley's Take: I definitely think this line has been overinflated. It's obvious that oddsmakers think that no one will be looking to back the Eagles, but the Cowboys shouldn't be double-digit favorite over anyone (they're 0-2 ATS in their two games as home faves of a touchdown or more -- to the Buccaneers and Browns -- and should have lost both outright). The pick: Eagles.
Spread: Giants minus-2.5
Public consensus pick: 68 percent picked Giants
SuperContestants: 119-39 in favor of Redskins
Public perception: The betting public's love affair with RG3 looks like it's taking a backseat this week with the Giants, who play better on the road.
Wiseguys' view: The wiseguys are also split on this game; some are buying up short price on the Giants, while others are waiting to see if this gets to plus-3 before taking the Redskins as a Monday night home dog. There are also sure to be some live teasers to the Redskins if the popular teams come in on Sunday.
Tuley's Take: I think the Giants are the right side as they try to remove any doubt that they rule the NFC East, but I like them better as a road underdog. The pick: Pass (pool play: Giants, as they were nearly my "Chalk Pick of the Week").
