The Dallas Cowboys bring an offense that has struggled to click into gear this season, putting up just 18.6 points per game. However, with 14.4 points allowed per game, the Dallas Cowboys’ defense is up in the top half of the league’s defensive rankings, which may give them some pull for their latest trip.

A winning margin as high as 17.4 points has settled the last five matches between the Philadelphia Eagles and Dallas Cowboys.
However, as the Philadelphia Eagles have only covered the spread in half of their past 10 home rounds, they seem a bit 50/50 for my taste. They are also 4-6 ATS in the last 10 overall.
While the Dallas Cowboys have covered the spread in the last three road trips. In their past 10 matches, the visitors have gone 6-4 ATS in this market and are also 8-2 ATS in their last 10 on the road. With this in mind, I like my chances of siding with the Dallas Cowboys (-110) against the spread here.
Going for the OVER (-110) might be worth a shot, with the total currently set at 45.5 points, as the total average points from the previous five meetings between the Philadelphia Eagles and Dallas Cowboys was 50.2 points.
The total has gone over in seven of Philadelphia Eagles’ last eight games on home turf. Over was also a winning bet in eight of the past 10 home games on for the Philadelphia Eagles, who are 6-4 in the over/under market across their last 10 games overall.
On the other hand, the total has gone under in four of Dallas Cowboys’ last five games. Over has struck out as a winning bet in just two of the past 10 road trips for the visitors, who are 3-6 in the last 10 games overall.
