The Philadelphia Eagles are fighting for the NFC title, but the Dallas Cowboys, currently in the lead, will host them on Saturday. Can the Eagles do their part and pull off the victory?
The Philadelphia Eagles, though currently 6-8, still have a chance at winning the NFC East. They need to win both games remaining on the schedule and then hope for the New York Jets to beat the New York Giants. The Giants, however, need to beat the Dallas Cowboys on the final week of the season, creating a three-way tie that the Eagles win on tiebreaker.
The odds makers had opened the game at three points in favor of the Cowboys before it later shifted down on others to 1-1.5 points, according to Odds Shark. This should be a highly competitive game since both teams are playing for a spot in the playoffs. Will the Eagles be able to ride a two-game winning streak into Dallas and turn it into a three-game one?
As competitive as it might be, odds makers are also feeling a high-scoring game since the over/under opened at and has remained at 50.5 points.
