Eagles vs. Cowboys Line: Philly Favored for First Time with Hurts
The Eagles’ slim playoff hopes took yet another hit in the desert with a tough loss on Sunday, but Jalen Hurts impressed for the second straight week and now gets his first shot at the Cowboys. While unlikely, both the 4-9-1 Eagles and 5-9 Cowboys remain alive in the NFC East and could take the field late Sunday in Dallas with something to play for should the Giants and Football team falter earlier in the day. Notably, the Eagles open as a favorite for the first time with Jalen Hurts at quarterback. Let’s take a look at the Eagles vs. Cowboys line ahead of this Week 16 matchup.
The Eagles vs. Cowboys line is currently set at Eagles -1.5. The over-under is 49.5. The Eagles are a -117 moneyline favorite, while the Cowboys are a -104 moneyline underdog.
The Eagles’ season may be lost, but Jalen Hurts is giving fans hope for the future following an outstanding performance against the Cardinals. After the Eagles fell behind 16-0 with a disastrous start, Hurts helped bring the Eagles back by throwing for 338 yards with three touchdowns and zero interceptions. He also added 63 yards on the ground. In the end, however, his encouraging play wasn’t enough, as the Eagles had no answer for Kyler Murray and DeAndre Hopkins. As for the Cowboys, they pulled off a minor home upset against the 49ers and will look to do the same once again this week.

The Eagles moneyline is priced at -117, while the Cowboys are -104 over at FanDuel Sportsbook.
The Eagles were heavily faded by the public in Weeks 13 and 14, but the money was a bit more evenly split against Arizona. Ahead of this week, with the Cowboys playing (slightly) better and the Eagles playing much improved football since the switch to Hurts, the betting action should be fairly even.
The over-under for the Eagles vs. Cowboys game is 49.5 points at DraftKings Sportsbook.
The Eagles ended a streak of six straight games staying under the total in Week 14 against the Saints and then soared over the total with the Cardinals once again last Sunday.
Quite simply, the Eagles’ offensive attack has been much more potent in two games with Hurts at quarterback. Dallas, meanwhile, had things going offensively against the 49ers. With two poor defenses on the field, the first meeting between these teams that featured just 32 total points certainly has no impact on one of the highest totals on the board in Week 16.
The under is 8-6 in games featuring the Eagles this season. It is 6-8 in games featuring the Cowboys.
Where Is The Money Going?
As of early Monday morning, the bets are all over the Eagles. The early-week splits have 87% of spread bets on the Eagles. Meanwhile, 88% of totals bets are on the over. Expect the splits to even out as the week moves forward.
Eagles Playoff Odds
Unsurprisingly, the Eagles’ playoff odds suffered a hit following their latest loss. Washington (-335) has the best odds to win the division, while the Giants (+600), Eagles (+700), and Cowboys (+1500) trail behind.
