Here is an NFL Week 16 NFC East showdown with playoff implications as the 13-1 Philadelphia Eagles take on the 10-4 Dallas Cowboys, these Eagles with the number one conference playoff seed and on a five-game winning streak, and the Cowboys coming off a tough loss but playing at home in Arlington as they cling to one of the NFC wildcard playoff seeds and attempt to find more wins.

According to the sportsbooks, the Dallas Cowboys have covered the spread in each of their last four games against the Eagles at AT&T Stadium, and now they face an Eagles team most likely without their scrambling starting QB Jalen Hurts (shoulder) who is listed as questionable to play, a chance for his popular and talented backup Gardner Minshew to step in and get the tough job done.

The NFL talking heads have argued that the Eagles have the best overall roster in the league, but the Cowboys have won 14 of their last 15 home games against NFC East opponents, so we like them to at least cover in Week 16, that is if their 25th ranked run defense can show up and somehow neutralize Philly’s 4th ranked rushing attack now made less effective while missing Hurts.

POINTS TOTAL: Over 46 (-110) at WynnBet 

If you’re new to sports betting, the goal of this points total bet is to guess whether the final combined score will go over or under what the oddsmakers predict – in this case, WynnBet thinks that total will be 46 points – and it takes a bit of quick research to bet in the best direction, these teams’ scoring tendencies a good indicator of how they will play on Saturday.

These two teams have offenses that typically average a combined 57.5 points per game and their defenses combine to allow 38.3 points per game, so you must determine whether this game will be more of an offensive or defensive struggle but given that each of the last four games between the Eagles and Cowboys have gone over the total points line, that’s how we are going here.

This game will be unaffected by weather since it will be played indoors, but injuries could affect the score, especially given QB Hurts possibly being out and on the Dallas side a massive array of banged-up playmakers listed as questionable to play including LB Micah Parsons (illness), DE DeMarcus Lawrence (foot), S Jayron Kearse (shoulder), and DE Dorance Armstrong (knee).

PLAYER PARLAY: E. Elliott 1+ Rush TD + A. Brown 100+ Rec Yards (-110) at DraftKings

On a good day, these are two offensively powerful teams so consider this Week 16 Player Parlay from DraftKings where you can bet on a playmaker from each team to earn a certain level of production, in this case, it’s Cowboys RB Ezekiel Elliott posting at least one rushing touchdown and also Eagles WR A.J. Brown catching for at least one hundred yards in the game.

Elliott is a veteran back who is known for being tough to tackle, a 6’ 0” 228 pound force of nature who this season has produced one or more TDs in eight of the twelve games in which he’s played while splitting carries with RB Tony Pollard, this week facing the Eagles’ run defense that is ranked 19th after keeping opponents to just over 121 ground yards per game.

The other critical part of this player parlay is Brown who spent his first three NFL seasons with the Tennessee Titans but who has found the perfect home in Philly where the 6’ 1” 226 pound deep threat has found a sweet connection with QB Hurts (and hopefully Minshew), this season with a receiving TD in 7 out of fourteen games facing the Cowboys’ 3rd ranked pass defense.
