Eagles vs. Cowboys Spread

The Eagles vs. Cowboys spread has come in at Philadelphia -3.5 with an Over/Under of 50.5.

Pro football sports betting doesn’t get much better than it will when Jon Kitna and the revitalized Dallas Cowboys look to take down MVP candidate Michael Vick and the streaking Philadelphia Eagles when they host their longtime rivals in what will undoubtedly be a telling NFC East divisional battle.

Nearly 80 percent of the backing on the Eagles-Cowboys spread is going Philadelphia’s way. 

Sunday, December 12, 8:20 PM ET

Live from Cowboys Stadium in Dallas, TX

TV: NBC

Radio: Sirius 125 and 126

Philadelphia 411

•Eagles are 4-1 Against The Spread in their last 5 games as a road favorite of 3.5-10.0.

•Eagles are 4-1 ATS in their last 5 vs. NFC.

•Eagles are 6-2 ATS in their last 8 games as a road favorite.

Philadelphia (8-4 SU, 6-6 ATS, 8-4 O/U) got back in the win column last week by man-handling the Houston Texans in their 34-24 Week 13 win after losing to Chicago in Week 12.

The Birds got another commanding performance from Mike Vick as he continues to play at an MVP caliber level.

Vick threw two touchdown passes while running for another to help Philly cash in against the spread as an 8.5-point home favorite to move to 3-1 ATS over its last four games. Philadelphia played Over the 51-point O/U Total to move to 7-1 against the Total in its last eight games.

Dallas 411

•Cowboys are 4-0 ATS in their last 4 games overall.

•Cowboys are 4-11 ATS in their last 15 games in December.

Dallas (4-8 SU, 5-7 ATS, 10-2 O/U) picked up a thrilling 38-35 overtime win over Peyton Manning and the Indianapolis Colts in their Week 13 matchup to cash in against the NFL sports betting line as a 5.5-point road dog and move to a perfect 4-) ATS in their L/4 games.

Veteran quarterback Jon Kitna threw one touchdown pass while Tashard Choice rushed 19 times for 100 yards and another score while Sean Lee and Orlando Scandrick both picked off Manning and returned their respective interceptions for touchdowns.

Prediction: I’m going to keep this NFL sports betting pick short and sweet by saying that I like the Over to play out first and foremost with both of these teams scoring at least 26 points apiece in each of their last four games and the ‘Boys putting up at least 33 points in three of their last four games overall.

The Over is 4-0 against the NFL sports betting Total in Philly’s last four road games and 7-1 in their L/8 games overall while also going 7-0 in the Cowboys’ last seven home games and 5-0 in their last five games against a team with a winning record.

When it comes to making an ATS sports betting wager on this contest, I am going to back the Philadelphia Eagles to pull of the outright road win and extremely narrow NFL sports betting payday as a 3.5-point road favorite over a Dallas team that has won just one home game this season.

NFL Picks: Over 50.5 Total Points/Philadelphia -3.5 Points
