The Dallas Cowboys return home to the comforts of AT&T Stadium with their collective tails between their legs after dropping a game in New York against a Jets team they were favored to beat by a touchdown per the current NFL odds. Since kicking off the season with three straight wins and pointspread covers at online sportsbooks, Jason Garrett’s squad has lost and failed to cover each of its last three. Because of it, the Week 7 installment of Sunday Night Football on NBC brings with it more meaning with the NFC East rival Philadelphia Eagles paying “JerryWorld” a visit with first place in the division on the line.

Philadelphia vs. Dallas Analysis
After getting swept in both of last year’s meetings to fall to 0-3 SU and ATS in the last three skirmishes with the Cowboys, the Eagles will no doubt be fired up to put an end to that losing streak. The betting markets have bought into that frame of mind hook, line and sinker. Though Dallas still remains the 3-point favorite it was installed at the open, those booking the bets have been hard-pressed to get much Dallas support in early wagering. A whopping 73 percent of the bet count has come in favor of Philadelphia with both public and sharp money backing Doug Pederson’s squad. What has seen some line movement is the total which is up to 49 from the 47.5-point opener with 75 percent of the wagers in support of the upward trend.
Philadelphia Eagles Odds
No two ways about it, the Eagles got their clocks cleaned in the Twin Cities last week where they fell by a 38-20 final count as 3.5-point underdogs. While their No. 2 ranked run defense did a fantastic job of keeping the damage done by Dalvin Cook to a minimum, it had no clue how to stop the trio of Kirk Cousins, Adam Thielen and especially Stefon Diggs through the air. Cousins went on to have his best game of the season throwing for 333 yards and a 4:1 TD/INT ratio with his main beneficiary being Diggs who lit up the DFS landscape by reeling in seven of 11 targets and turning them into 167 yards and 3 TDs. Should Amari Cooper be forced to miss this game, it would be a big help to an Eagles secondary ranked No. 29 overall that concedes upwards of 280 passing yards per game.
Dallas Cowboys Odds
As great a start the Cowboys got out to begin the season, astute NFL bettors were still hesitant to buy into Jason Garrett’s squad being one of the premiere teams the NFC had to offer. That had everything to do with the caliber of opponent faced. Sorry, but dismantling the Giants, Redskins and Dolphins – three teams that are a combined 3-14 overall to this point – does absolutely nothing to get the needle pointed in the right direction. Following that win streak up with three straight SU and ATS defeats to the Saints, Packers and Jets lets it be known this team isn’t what it was made out to be early on. Thankfully, there’s plenty of time left in the season for the Cowboys to improve and once again become a force in the NFC. For that to occur, the injury bug needs to stop attacking pertinent pieces to the roster.
Dallas has been nothing short of sensational within the division dating back to 2017. In the 14 games played since, the Cowboys have logged moneymaking 12-2 SU and ATS records with only one of the seven games played at home being lost. That one defeat just so happened to come against these same Philadelphia Eagles who scored the 37-9 win and cover as 6-point favorites back in 2017. Dallas went on to log the 29-23 win and cover in the rematch at home last season, and enters this Sunday night tilt winners of three straight in the recent rivalry after busting the broom out on the then defending champs a season ago. Both of last year’s matchups played to high scorers with an average of 49.5-points hitting the scoreboard. The Eagles had won outright the two previous times they were installed road underdogs heading into last week’s game, while Dallas is 3-1 SU and 2-2 ATS the last four times it was installed a 2.5 to 3-point home favorite with the O/U splitting in all four matchups.
Those that bet the under and Eagles in the team’s Week 14 clash of a year ago are likely still scarred from how the game ultimately played out. Dallas took a 9-6 lead with it into the fourth quarter which had those that forecasted a low scorer grinning from ear-to-ear. But then all hell broke loose as the teams combined for 31 points in the final stanza with 21 of those points scored in the final 3+ minutes. Dallas went on to win the game in overtime after Dak Prescott connected with Amari Cooper from 15-yards out to lead the Cowboys to the 29-23 win and miracle cover as 3.5-point favorites.
