- Advertisment -

The Dallas Cowboys (9-3) are the favorites, expected to win by at least a field goal but less than a touchdown (currently -3.5) over the Philadelphia Eagles (10-2). The Cowboys have won four straight games. 

The ‘Boys scored a 41-35 victory over the Seattle Seahawks in Week 13, while the Eagles performed poorly in a 42-19 loss to the San Francisco 49ers. 

A Dallas win would put them in a dead heat with Philadelphia in the NFC East, with four weeks remaining. 

Here’s everything you need to know about the matchup between the Eagles and Cowboys — the point spread, moneyline, total Over/Under and an expert pick from our betting analyst Will Hill.

Cowboys vs. Eagles Prediction & Pick

  • Pick ATS: Dallas (-3.5) 
  • Pick OU: Under (52) 
  • Prediction: Dallas 31 – Philadelphia 20

Pick via FOX Sports Betting Analyst Will Hill

I hate laying the hook here, and maybe it’s best to wait and hope this line goes back down to 3. 3 is much more of a key number than 4, so if it goes up to 4, it’s not as big of a deal as if it went back down to 3. 

Anyway, I like the Cowboys here, they had plenty of opportunities to win their first matchup against the Eagles back in November, and they are at a huge advantage in terms of rest and prep, having not played since last Thursday.

Meanwhile, the Eagles are in the midst of a gauntlet schedule, having played the Chiefs and Bills down to the wire, followed by a disappointing loss against the rugged 49ers. 

The Cowboys have scored 40+ in four straight home games. I’m not sure if they’ll make it five, but I think they roll against a tired Eagles squad.

PICK: Cowboys (-3.5) to win by more than 3.5 points
