NFL Football Betting: Philadelphia Eagles vs. Dallas Cowboys

Posted by The Wiesguy on 11/5/2015 11:17:19 PM

When you look at the NFC East you ask yourself the question of whether anyone actually wants to win this thing. As bad a first half as Dallas had had they can finish it just a game back if they win on Sunday Night. While Philly, as maligned a team as there is could be in the lead. Suffice it to say there is still a lot of football to be played.

Philadelphia Eagles (3-4) vs. Dallas Cowboys (2-5)

Sunday November 8

8:30PM

AT&T Stadium - Arlington, Texas

Philadelphia -2.5, 44.5

Philadelphia

Per the Intro the Eagles have a chance to close the first half with the lead in the division, despite the fact that nothing has really gone according to plan. They are coming off a bye week but injuries might be a concern, especially as leading rusher Ryan Mathews is dinged up. Now part of the Eagles problems is that they have not been able to get big free agent acquisition Demarco Murray going in the right direction. Perhaps they have used the time off to get that and some other matters sorted. This team has looked mostly out of sync all season long.

Dallas

The first half has been forgettable, mostly due to injuries, but the reality is that “good teams” overcome adversity. The Cowboys have not and thus are on a five game losing streak heading into this one. Last week’s one point loss to the Seahawks was typical. Without Tony Romo at the helm the Cowboys have lost the ability to threaten with the pass. They are still among the leaders rushing the ball but can’t leverage that given how often they have been playing catchup. This could be a game where they could try and lean on that vaunted offensive line to lead them to victory. Otherwise the season will be effectively over before Romo returns.

Prediction: This is a gut check for Dallas. I hate their QB situation but I think there is enough around on D and in the running game to get this game at home. It also doesn’t hurt their confidence that Philly is one of the two teams they have beaten this season - back in week two. As a bonus you get them in a home underdog role.

Pick: Dallas +2.5 (tease it to three)
