The 3 Best FOX Bet Eagles vs. Cowboys Player Prop Picks

The excitement and optimism that followed the Philadelphia Eagles’ season-opening win over the Atlanta Falcons evaporated awfully quickly in a loss to the San Francisco 49ers – in the Eagles’ home opener, no less – where the Eagles scored only 11 points and were stuck on three points for just shy of 56 minutes.

We have good news and bad news for you with these Eagles’ proposition bets this week at FOX Bet. The good news is that this week’s opponent, the Dallas Cowboys, is a bad (bordering on terrible) defensive team. They gave up 30 or more points in half of their games in 2020, and 2021 has them right back on that same pace, as they allowed 31 points in Week 1 to the Tampa Bay Buccaneers.

The Three Best Eagles-Cowboys Player Props at FOX Bet

Now the bad news. The Eagles will be without two starting offensive linemen in this game. The loss of starting right guard Brandon Brooks is regrettable and disappointing. The loss (hopefully for just this game) of emerging star left tackle Jordan Mailata is a much, much more disconcerting development. Eagles’ quarterback Jalen Hurts will probably spend a lot of the night trying to activate his rear-view camera in his helmet and hearing footsteps. That will probably lead to happy feet on passing downs and a higher ratio of draws and screens than the Eagles would prefer to run against an iffy Cowboys defense. But you can only play the guys who are healthy enough to dress. 

All odds per our partners at FoxBet.

JALEN HURTS UNDER 245.5 PASSING YARDS (-110)

Hurts completed 27 of 35 passes against the Falcons in Week 1. He also threw for three touchdowns. That was fun, wasn’t it? Except, even in that game, against a terrible Falcons team and with a fully healthy offensive line, Hurts only threw for 264 yards. Last week, Hurts sort of crashed back to Earth against the 49ers. He threw for 190 yards and completed only 12 balls. 

The Cowboys’ defense is pretty bad, but the loss of two starting offensive linemen (especially Mailata) suggests strongly that Hurts will end up tucking and running on more than a few passing downs, and that the passes he does get off will be of the short-yardage, try to move the sticks variety. With a healthy offensive line, Hurts would have had the time to let speedy receivers DeVonta Smith and Jalen Raegor create opportunities for chunk plays downfield. This week, anyway, Hurts probably won’t have that kind of time.

MILES SANDERS ANYTIME TOUCHDOWN SCORER (+145)

The real beneficiary of the combination of the Eagles’ offensive line woes and a weak Cowboys’ defense is apt to be Eagles’ running back Miles Sanders. The Cowboys were 31st against the run in 2020. There are only 32 teams in the NFL. The Cowboys also were ranked 25th in rushing touchdowns allowed last season. 

Sanders is doing his normal “yeah, he’s not bad” job in 2021. He has 28 carries and 129 yards in two games. He’s averaging 4.6 yards per carry. More notably, Sanders hasn’t scored a touchdown yet in 2021. Eagles’ head coach Nick Sirianni has to know that the “starting” running back needs to get into the end zone to feel like he’s doing his part to help the team. Sanders will break his 0-for in this one.

DeVONTA SMITH OVER 55.5 YARDS RECEIVING (-115)

The Cowboys were a surprisingly stingy team against the pass last season, ranking 11th in yards allowed in the air. As usual with the Cowboys, though, that ranking loses a lot of its heft when you consider some of the other damning numbers. The Cowboys gave up 34 touchdowns through the air last season (27th in the league) and only managed 10 interceptions (23rd in the league).

And while Hurts probably won’t be able to throw for a ton of yardage, the Eagles are still going to be taking some shots down the field in this game. Maybe not home run balls like the one Hurts completed to Quez Watkins against the 49ers…but mid-range shots in the 20-yard to 30-yard range. Smith is going to be one of the receivers Hurts will want to hook up with downfield as often as possible. Smith could get to this number by halftime.
