Philadelphia Eagles vs Dallas Cowboys: betting odds, preview and pick

Tom Pennington

The Cowboys are 0-8 ATS in eight home games and the Eagles are 0-7 SU in their past seven games. Which former NFC title contender breaks the goose egg and why did NBC not change this game?

The Philadelphia Eagles are 0-7 SU and 1-6 ATS over their last seven games and face a team riding an 0-8 ATS run at home in the NBC Sunday Night game.

The Dallas Cowboys have been the worst home bet in the NFL and they lay 10.5 points at Cowboys Stadium as the slumping, injury-riddled Eagles visit. Philly cut Pro Bowl DE Jason Babin this week and lost DeSean Jackson for the season.

The Cowboys have also struggled in divisional games, going 2-10 ATS in their past 12 within the NFC East, according to the Week 13 NFL trends report at OddsShark.com.

With a 3-8 SU and 2-9 ATS record, there haven't been many bright spots to the Philadelphia Eagles this season. Mired in a seven-game losing streak including an 0-6 ATS run over their last six games, Monday night's 30-22 loss to Carolina was actually the first time in five weeks that the Eagles had lost a game by less than 13 points.

While not as disappointing as the Philadelphia Eagles, the Dallas Cowboys have also suffered through a lackluster season with a 5-6 SU and 4-7 ATS record. The defense has taken some positive strides this season, but the lack of a running game (rushing for just 78.7 points per game) has made Dallas one-dimensional on offense.

Against a team like Philadelphia that may be fine, but the Cowboys haven't been able to match up well against quality teams.

Which ugly ATS stretch is going to come to an end this week? Philadelphia is 0-6 ATS over its last six games, but the Cowboys are 0-8 ATS over their last eight home games with five outright losses over that span.

Philadelphia is 3-1 ATS in its last four games against Dallas, but that loss came three weeks ago when the Cowboys beat the Eagles 38-23 in Philadelphia.

Even with LeSean McCoy out, the Eagles were able to rush for 204 yards Monday night against Carolina. That game was close, and so was Philadelphia's last game against Dallas before the Cowboys scored back-to-back touchdowns on a punt return and interception return in the fourth quarter.

Dallas will likely get the win at home, but with many young Eagles fighting for roster spots in another primetime game, we see the Eagles keeping this one within 10 points.
