Eagles at Cowboys OddsShark Matchup Report

Philadelphia Eagles

Since picking up their only loss of the season all the way back in Week 2, the Eagles have won each of their last seven games and are 6-0 ATS over their last six games.

Philadelphia's 51-23 win over Denver before the team's bye week was its second straight win by over 20 points and its fourth double-digit win in its last five games. The Eagles have the second best scoring offense in the league averaging 31.4 points per game while allowing only 19.9 points per game on defense.

In their last 18 games coming off a bye week, the Eagles are 15-3 SU and 11-6-1 ATS per the OddsShark NFL Database. This stretch includes a 2-0 SU and ATS record against Dallas.

Dallas Cowboys

If last Sunday's performance against the Atlanta Falcons was a sign of things to come without Ezekiel Elliott in the lineup, the Cowboys could be in trouble.

Dallas' running backs rushed for just 65 yards in the Cowboys 27-7 loss to the Falcons. The Cowboys had racked up 32.4 points per game over its previous five games, but without the threat of Elliott in the backfield, Atlanta had no trouble honing in on the pass. Dallas is 3-10 ATS in its last 13 November home games.

Sunday night's total is set at 48 points. The UNDER is 9-2 in Dallas' last 11 games as an underdog.

Since opening at Philadelphia -3.5, this line has already moved a full point in the Eagles' favor and may continue to do so before game time. With the way that the Eagles are playing and a bye week to prepare for a Dallas offense missing its best player, Philadelphia, second on the odds to win Super Bowl 52, is understandably a popular pick.
