Philadelphia Eagles vs. Dallas Cowboys Odds to Win
In a scheduling quirk, the Philadelphia Eagles and Dallas Cowboys are meeting for the first time this season on Sunday. Because the NFL wants divisional games in the final week of the season they will also play in the final week of the season. Philadelphia had no success at all last season against the Cowboys, losing both regular season games and the playoff matchup.
Philadelphia is a 3.5 point favorite with a total of 50.5 at SBG Global.com
The Eagles would have been better served to face Dallas earlier in the season. Under Jason Garrett the Cowboys are playing very well having won three of their four games. If not for a Roy Williams fumble they would have won all four. Dallas is scoring points under Garrett and their defense is forcing turnovers. They have forced 11 turnovers in the past four games. The Cowboys did suffer a loss last week though as star rookie Dez Bryant broke his ankle and is out for the season.
Philadelphia has been virtually unstoppable with Michael Vick at quarterback. Only the Chicago Bears were able to slow him down at all. He has a number of weapons at his disposal with receivers DeSean Jackson and Jeremy Maclin and running back LeSean McCoy. This game on Sunday might have been a letdown spot for the Eagles since they play the New York Giants next week but because the Cowboys eliminated them from the playoffs last year there is no question the Eagles will be focused on Sunday night.
