Can Prescott and Wentz Shine Under Sunday Night Lights?

After their upset of the Vikings in Week 6, the Eagles get set for a prime-time matchup against the division rival Dallas Cowboys under the bright lights of Sunday Night Football at AT&T Stadium in Arlington. There were some questions heading into this game whether the Cowboys would go back to Tony Romo but with the veteran signal-caller looking like he could miss another couple of weeks, Dallas will be going back to Dak (Prescott).

SHARK BITES
  • The Eagles are 4-1 ATS in their last 5 games on the road against the Cowboys.
  • The visiting team is 6-0 SU in its last 6 games in this matchup.
  • The Cowboys are 2-8 ATS in their last 10 games at home after winning their 2 most recent home games.

The Cowboys’ stud rookie quarterback finally threw his first interception in his last game against the Packers but still managed to emerge victorious in his sixth week at the helm of the Dallas offense. He will face another stiff test Sunday against an Eagles defense that is one of the best in the NFL and that allows just 204 passing yards per game.

One spot where the Eagles have been vulnerable has been on the ground. They have given up 102.7 rushing yards per game and will be facing a Cowboys rushing attack that has pounded the rock for 161.2 yards per game on 4.8 yards per rush. Dallas is the only team in the league that runs the ball more often than it passes, so expect an extremely rush-heavy attack on Sunday night.

The road team has been thriving in this series but beware of some trends that point in another direction. Dallas is 7-2 in its last nine games after winning as an underdog and is 7-2 in its last nine home games after a bye week. Dallas has failed to cover just once this season and has now gotten five straight ATS wins, but if the Cowboys hope to add another win and cover to their pristine record, they will have to avoid giving Philly the ball. In the Eagles’ four wins this season, they've averaged 3.5 takeaways per game, while in their two losses they’ve averaged just one.

The total has gone OVER in six of the Eagles’ last seven games as an underdog of 4.5 or more but their game last week went UNDER with a bullet despite being the lowest total on the board. If this game is going OVER, the Cowboys rush attack will have to be very effective and the Eagles offense will have to score, something it has not been doing with regularity.

Opening Odds & Computer Pick

The Dallas Cowboys were listed as -5-point favorites at Bovada and other online Sportsbooks, with the total listed at one point at 43.5.

Odds Shark computer prediction handicapping models run on this game pick a 30-17 victory for the Cowboys. View the computer score prediction and who will win the pick on the moneyline for all upcoming NFL matchups here.
