1.5 units on Philadelphia +3 (-125) (risk 1.5 to return 2.7) RESULT: loss
1.5 units on Game Total OVER 48.5 -109 (risk 1.5 to return 2.88) RESULT: loss
Philadelphia is battling with injuries in the defensive backfield, but the Cowboys won't be able to exploit it much if they continue to play as they have their last three games. Dallas started 3-0 this season and now it's 3-3 after losing to the seven-point underdog Jets 24-22 on Sunday. It's not too surprising as their three wins came against teams with a current combined record of 3-14. Another major factor is the numerous injuries the team has suffered, including two starting offensive linemen and star receiver Amari Cooper, who is questionable for this game with a thigh contusion. Also, the play-calling has been criticized as the Cowboys seem to have gotten away from what got them their first three wins. This is a true revenge game for the Eagles as they remember the Cowboys beating them in overtime in December after losing to them the first time also. Both meetings went OVER the total and Philly went OVER by 14 points against the Vikings. Dallas has gone OVER its last two games and it's 5-0 OVER its last five when following an ATS loss. The OVER is 24-10 in the Eagles' last 34 road games and 15-7 OVER versus the NFC East. The road team has covered 11 of the last 15 meetings. Play the Eagles and OVER.
