The Eagles and Cowboys will cap off the seventh Sunday of the NFL season in primetime tonight when the two teams meet at AT&T Field with first-place on the line in the NFC East. This showdown between bitter rivals figures to be one of the most heavily bet games of the day, particularly at PA online sportsbooks, which are offering tons of great promos and bet boosts for this one. We’ll take a look at those deals, the current odds, as well as some picks and predictions in this Eagles vs. Cowboys betting preview.
If recent history serves as any indication of what’s about to go down tonight, then we should be in for quite a treat. Three of the last four meetings between the Eagles and Cowboys played in Arlington have been decided in overtime, and with the Cowboys a short favorite ahead of this one, yet another tight contest is expected by experts and oddsmakers alike.
Dallas enters having lost three straight games after beating up on the JV portion of its schedule for three weeks to open its season. The Cowboys have been plagued by injuries and missed opportunities in recent weeks, but appear to be getting healthier just in time for this pivotal showdown. The same could be said of an underachieving Eagles team that has been decimated by injuries to key players while also letting potential wins, quite literally, slip through their fingers against both Atlanta and Detroit. For as much adversity as each of these two squads have faced in the early going, the winner tonight can wash away some of the frustration and find itself atop the division standings as we near the season’s midway point.
