Fresh off of a potentially season-saving fourth-quarter comeback last Thursday, the Eagles welcome a reeling Cowboys team to Philly for Sunday Night Football. It would seem the Eagles are getting the Cowboys at just the right time in the wake of Dallas’ brutal 25-3 loss at Washington and general quarterback disarray. Certainly, oddsmakers aren’t too high on Dallas as the 2-4-1 Eagles, a team with plenty of its own issues, enter as a big favorite in this NFC East clash.
The Eagles vs. Cowboys Week 8 line is currently set at Eagles -10.5. The over under is 43. The Eagles are a –530 moneyline favorite, while the Cowboys are a +425 moneyline underdog.

It says a lot about the Cowboys that the Eagles, a team that was trailing by 11 points midway through the fourth quarter to a one-win Giants team, is favored by more than a touchdown this week. At 2-5, Dallas remains alive in the NFC East, but the Cowboys appear to be in complete disaster-mode following consecutive blowout losses. Dallas enters Week 8 as the only NFL team yet to cover this season. In fact, the Cowboys are just one of three teams that have failed to cover any of its first seven games dating back to the 2003 season.
Here is the current betting line, odds, spread, and total for the Eagles vs. Cowboys Week 8 matchup on the PA online sports betting market as of February 26, 2021 1:54 PM.
