Dallas Philadelphia Prediction, Eagles Cover

The Dallas Cowboys and Philadelphia Eagles are a combined 9-1, despite the fact Dallas hasn’t had its star quarterback for almost the entire season. It doesn’t appear Dak Prescott will be available yet again Sunday night in Philly, but backup Cooper Rush has held his own in four wins.

Dalton Schultz should be back but the Eagles usually win when favored (10-1 SU) and boast a terrific pre-bye-week angle that sees them cover spreads heading into byes.

With Philly favored by 6.5 points at home, let’s look at both sides.

WHY THE COWBOYS WILL COVER

That’s an awfully high number considering that this is a matchup between two top-six teams in terms of DVOA. Dallas also owns plenty of positive ATS trends including 8 straight wins and covers vs divisional foes, 10-1 ATS on the road and 18-7 ATS as an underdog.

Don’t forget they have owned the Eagles (7-2 SU and ATS) over recent seasons.

WHY THE EAGLES WILL COVER

It’s hard to imagine the Cowboys can keep rolling considering their quarterback situation combined with some tough injuries. This could be a wakeup call on the road in prime time, especially with Dallas traveling cross-country following a big win in L.A.

The Eagles have been a safe bet heading into a bye week as well, 8-1 ATS past nine seasons, per Trend Dummy.

Dallas Philadelphia Prediction

Jalen Hurts is playing so well, Philly is healthier and hotter and this should be a statement game at Lincoln Financial Field for the Eagles. They take down Dallas by at least a touchdown.

Eagles Cowboys Prop Picks

Jalen Hurts Eagles – This will be minus money, but seemingly safe money. The Philly QB gets into the end zone every week, although this will be the toughest defense he has faced.

Dalton Schultz Cowboys – Watch his status, he was questionable as of Thursday. If he plays, he is the perfect safety blanket for Cooper Rush.
