Why the Dallas Cowboys are a good bet -3?

The Cowboys had played like a mediocre bunch. They were on a 3-game losing streak: 13-9 versus the Patriots, 26-15 against Buffalo on Thanksgiving, and 31-24 against Chicago. But in Week 15, the Boys bounced back with a huge 44-21 victory over the L.A. Rams. On track again, Dallas should handle a division rival as they did in the 37-10 win earlier in the season.

Why the Philadelphia Eagles are a good bet +3?

The Eagles had every right to fold it up after losing to the Miami Dolphins in Week 13. Instead, they’ve gone on a 2-game winning streak, beating the New York Giants 23-17 overtime a couple of weeks ago. This past Sunday, Philly dominated Washington 37-27. The Eagles smell a division title. To secure it, they must upset the Cowboys on the moneyline as well as cover the spread.

Cowboys vs Eagles Final NFL Betting Analysis

Let’s not get carried away with Philadelphia’s 37-27 win over Washington. Few teams have allowed D.C. rookie Dwayne Haskins to look like a 4-year veteran. Haskins torched the Birds for 261 yards and 2 TDs.

That’s bad news for Philly heading into this matchup with the Dallas Cowboys. Dak Prescott completed 21-of-27 for 239 yards and a TD in the first game. He should be more effective on Sunday because the Cowboys rushing attack got back on track against the Rams.

The Eagles can’t stop rookie quarterbacks and guys like Ryan Fitzpatrick from throwing it all over the field. They have no shot of stopping Dak. Any way we look at this game, Dallas has the edge. Unless they implode, a possibility but not likely, the Cowboys win this by at least 6 points.
