Can Eagles Continue to Cash in for Bettors in Dallas?

There’s a popular expression in sports betting: Good teams win, but great teams cover. Well, according to that expression, the Philadelphia Eagles are as great as it gets as their 7-2 ATS record, which includes six straight covers, is the best in the NFL. Well-rested coming off their bye week, the Eagles will hope to keep rolling and keep adding to their backers’ bankrolls Sunday night in Dallas.

Shark Bites
  • The visiting team is 8-3 ATS in the last 11 games in this matchup.
  • The Cowboys are 3-10 ATS in their last 13 games at home in November.
  • The Eagles are 5-0 SU and 4-1 ATS in their last five games vs divisional opponents.

Given their recent domination of spreads and with the Cowboys coming off an ugly loss in Atlanta,  a very strong case can be made for backing Philly at -5.5, especially with Cowboys left tackle Tyron Smith and linebacker Sean Lee uncertain for the game. Without Smith vs the Falcons, Dallas allowed a season-high eight sacks and looked like a much different team. Now combine that with Ezekiel Elliott being out and the Cowboys offense suddenly morphs into a very mediocre unit.

The majority of Philly’s beatdowns have occurred at home this season, but they have a prime-time road win and cover under their belts from a Thursday night win in Carolina. Dallas has been about as average as it gets at home this season, going 2-2 SU and ATS, and traditionally hasn’t been especially good when hosting the Eagles, going 8-14 ATS since 1996 and, more recently, 2-4 ATS since 2011. This will be the Cowboys’ first game as a home underdog this season, while the Eagles covered the spread in their lone game as a road favorite this season.

Taking a look at the total, which is sitting in the 48-point range, bettors will be interested to know that the Eagles have gone OVER in three of their four road games this season and have surpassed the 48-point mark in five of their last seven games.
