NFL Betting – Do Eagles Have The Formula?

NFL Betting Playoffs Odds at BSN SportsThe Philadelphia Eagles and Dallas Cowboys will meet for a third time this season. This time, it’s for keeps. 

Those making their NFL predictions saw the Cowboys stomp the Eagles in Week 17 and steal not only the No. 2 seed in the NFC from them, but also the NFC East title. The Eagles could have been at home on a bye week but instead, they have to go back on the road to Dallas for a second week in a row after losing 24-0.

Last Week

The Eagles came into the week as the surprising No. 2 seed in the NFC after the Minnesota Vikings had lost three of their last four games. A win for the Eagles would have secured home-field advantage against everyone except for New Orleans and would have secured a bye.


Instead, the Eagles were rolled in Dallas and ended up dropping all the way to the No. 6 seed in the East, which means they will be on the road the entire way once again. 

For the Cowboys, they have now won three straight games heading into the playoffs and they are on a roll. While most people wanted to criticize them at the beginning of December, they are a serious Super Bowl contender after rolling their last three opponents. Their defense is hot right now and they get to face a team they have already defeated twice this year. 

This Week

The internet betting crowd is wondering how the Eagles are going to win this game? This is a team that doesn’t run the ball and has to go on the road with a one-dimensional offense and try to win. In two previous matchups this year, they haven’t been able to do so. 

For the Cowboys, they have owned the line of scrimmage in both games. Their offensive line isn’t allowing the Eagles to get close to Romo, who has had a quarterback rating of 100 or more in five of his last six games, while the Cowboys are generating plenty of pressure on Donovan McNabb (eight sacks in two games).  

The Eagles offense lives off of the big plays to DeSean Jackson but the Cowboys have shut him down in both games this year. Expect more of the same as the Cowboys are just a really bad matchup for Philadelphia. 

NFL Picks: Cowboys -4
