Game Analysis & Picks
The NFL’s only undefeated team, the Philadelphia Eagles (#1 in NFC East) are 3-2 ATS so far this year. The NFC East #2, Dallas Cowboys are 4-1 overall (beating the spread in their 4 wins). This should be a defensive battle between teams that are very familiar with each other.
The best possible outcome for the Cowboys will only come if they ride with QB Cooper Rush. Dak is on the mend but needs to sit one more week so that he can re-enter with an easy win at home against Detroit. For now, Dallas needs to ride with QB2 who has thrown exactly zero INTs in all 5 games this year.
Both defenses are strong, and this will be a battle in the trenches. The Cowboys D-line will have a slight advantage over the banged-up Eagles O-line. Nearly every offensive lineman for the Eagles is questionable- LT Jordan Mailata, C Jason Kelce, and both Guards Landon Dickerson and Isaac Seumalo, are on the fence for Sunday’s matchup. Plus, Eagles kicker Jake Elliott is questionable with an injury to his kicking foot from a roughing-the-kicker penalty in Week 4. Rookie kicker Cameron Dicker picked up the slack last week going 2/2 with a long of 42, but who knows how he’ll hold up if the game is on the line.
The defensive battle alone made me go all in on the Under 42. Given the low score prediction, plus an injured Eagles O-line, I don’t see either team winning by more than a touchdown, so I’m sticking with the Cowboys +6.5.
