Sunday Night Football in Week 14 is expected to be an absolute thriller. The Philadelphia Eagles travel to Dallas to face the Cowboys in one of the most highly anticipated division matchups of the season. Both teams have been playing incredibly this season and are poised for playoff runs.
Philadelphia still holds the number one spot in the NFC with a 10-2 record. Their only two losses came from the Jets and the 49ers. The Eagles have been hot for over two years, but they are beatable as we saw against the 49ers.
San Francisco is the best team in the NFL, and they dominated Philadelphia. Look for the Eagles to bounce back strong in this contest.
The bad news for Philadelphia is that Dallas is a tough team to bounce back against as an elite divisional opponent. With a record of 9-3, the Cowboys are playing better than ever. The offense is playing great behind Dak Prescott, and even with the injuries, the defense is still one of the best in the NFL.
The Cowboys are 3.5-point favorites at home and have struggled against teams with a winning record. The spread is a tough market to attack, so we’re leaning toward the player prop markets.
The hype around Tony Pollard coming into his first season was massive, but he hasn’t lived up to the hype. Pollard has only averaged 61 yards per game in the 12 contests he has played. While his average is a little higher than his MNF line, we believe this stout rushing defense for Philadelphia will keep him in check.
The Eagles defense is fourth in the league in rushing yards allowed and they have stayed fairly consistent even facing elite talent. The Eagles have only allowed 90 yards per game on the ground.
Pollard rushed 12 times for 51 yards in the first game of the season between these two teams. Dallas will need to throw to win, and this has been their bread and butter as of late. Look for Prescott to stay hot and Pollard to be a secondary option.
CeeDee Lamb has resembled Dez Bryant in the second half of the season. Lamb has been one of the primary reasons Dallas has scored so many points. While this reception line seems high, we believe it’s right where it needs to be against the Eagles.
In Lamb’s last 6 games, he has averaged 10 receptions per game. He’s been on fire all season as a top-three receiver, and we don’t expect Philadelphia to be able to slow down his production on Sunday night.
The Eagles defense allows the most completions for opposing quarterbacks. Opposing teams have averaged 26 completions per game and with a pass-heavy offense like Dallas, that’s a juicy stat for this prop.
We expect this game to be close from start to finish. Neither team should feel good about taking their foot off of the gas pedal.
Anytime the Eagles are playing, and Jalen Hurts is involved, we love to bet his Anytime Touchdown prop. It’s consistently a bet that hits because of the Eagles offensive philosophy. Since the emergence of the “Brotherly Shove,” Hurts has become one of the leading touchdown scorers in the NBA.
Hurts has six rushing touchdowns in his last four games and has scored in all four contests. We love betting trends and Hurts seems to lean on his legs heavily in big games.
Anytime Philadelphia gets inside the three-yard line, get ready for Hurts to score. The play has over a 96% success rate, and no team has cracked the code.
While the Dallas defense doesn’t give up many rushing touchdowns, it’s just hard for any team to stop Hurts. We expect Hurts to get multiple opportunities and capitalize like they do so well week after week.
