The NFL betting action goes on for the final week of the regular season as all 32 teams take to the gridiron. This includes an NFC East showdown at Lincoln Financial Field in Philadelphia, so we bring you the best Cowboys vs. Eagles betting pick along with the latest odds update on Bookmaker Sportsbook.
Dallas handled Philadelphia the first time these teams met, winning 41-21 back in September. The Cowboys are 4-1 ATS in their last five games while Philadelphia is 4-2-1 ATS in their last seven. Dallas has a number of players who are out, but Ezekiel Elliot is expected to play. The secondary could be a little thin as seven players are out. Philadelphia also has a lot of late season injuries but the loss of DT Fletcher Cox is a big one. QB Jalen Hurts is listed as probable.
Cardinals Upset Cowboys in Dallas
The Dallas Cowboys (11-5) saw their four-game winning streak come to an end with a 25-22 loss to the Arizona Cardinals last Sunday. That was a huge loss as the team had a shot at the top record in the NFC, but now is relegated to a likely No. 4 spot, meaning they could be welcoming these same Cardinals to open the playoffs.
Falling behind early meant that Dallas could not run the ball, and that hurt their game plan as they were held to just 45 yards rushing, 20 by quarterback Dak Prescott, who had a solid day with his arm, completing 24 of 38 passes for 226 yards and 3 TDs. Prescott has now thrown for 4,154 yards and 32 touchdowns, completing 68.4% of his passes.
The defense struggled to slow down Arizona, who controlled the clock for 34:42. Dallas had 10 penalties for 88 yards and are 21st in penalties per game at 6.5. Linebacker Micah Parsons is having a monster year, leading the team with 13.0 sacks and second in tackles with 84. He has also forced three fumbles.
Eagles Soaring Entering Playoffs
With four straight victories, the Philadelphia Eagles (9-7) find themselves headed to the playoffs and they are now looking to improve their playoff positioning, seeking to avoid playing Tampa Bay to start the postseason. The Eagles have won six of their last seven games and it has been outstanding defense leading the way as Philly has allowed under 20 points in six of their last seven games.
The Eagles knocked off Washington last Sunday, 20-16. Washington took a 16-7 lead into the half, but saw the Eagles score all 13 points after the break, including two fourth quarter field goals, to earn the win. Jake Elliot hit from 41 and 42 yards and has now made 28 of 42 field goals. Hurts provided just enough offense, completing 17 of 26 passes for 214 yards. Hurts has thrown for 3,144 yards and 16 touchdowns, and adds 784 yards and 10 TDs on the ground.
The defense held Washington to 94 yards rushing and 312 total yards of offense. Javon Hargrave and Josh Sweat each have 7.5 sacks, but that has not helped lead to a lot of turnovers, as the Eagles have 12 interceptions and four fumble recoveries.
- 4-1 ATS in their last five games.
- 4-0 in their last four games as the road favorite.
- 1-3-1 ATS in their last five games against NFC East teams.
Dallas Cowboys vs. Philadelphia Eagles Pick
Both teams need a victory to improve their playoff seeding, but it would not be surprising for Philadelphia to limit the action of Hurts. They need him as close to 100% as possible if they are going to make a deep playoff run, and so look for him to play limited minutes at best. That gives the Cowboys a huge edge.
However, Dallas has not won in Philadelphia since 2018, losing there late last season, 23-9, and in 2019, 17-9. The Eagles have not been great at home this year (3-4), but games against the Cowboys are always fun. Dallas may win, but not by more than three.
Pick: Take Philadelphia Eagles at +4.0.
These teams produced 62 points the last time they met, so a 43.5-point total is surprising. Added to it is that the Eagles have gone over in four straight games at home and seven of their last 10 overall.
Dallas can put the pressure on Tampa Bay and Los Angeles if they can win on Saturday, forcing those teams to play their No. 1 offenses to hold the No 2 and 3 seeds, so this game will be important to both teams. This is a battle of the No. 1 scoring offense against the No. rushing offense, so both teams can move the ball. Look for a total near 50.
Pick: Go over 43.5.
