Cowboys vs. Eagles Betting Insights

Reasons The Cowboys Can Cover The Spread

The Cowboys pass rush is elite, 1st in pressure rate while blitzing only 17th most frequently. Their ability to get there with 4 means they won’t have to lose a spy on Hurts, which is how Philadelphia has been deadly at times.

If the Cowboys defence can get a short field or two for their offence, then the worries about Cooper Rush’s ability to score points goes away. The Eagles’ 16th ranked pass protection is another concern.

Why The Eagles can cover the spread

The Cowboys offence just can’t reliably create touchdown drives at the rates they need to. In the 4 Cooper Rush-started games, the Cowboys have attempted 13 Field Goals – a rate that would be tops of the league over the course of the season.

The Cowboys Offence under Rush is mediocre – 17th by DVOA, 27th by PFF – while the Eagles have the 5th best defence by DVOA and 6th by PFF. When the Cowboys try to score, it’s likely to be field goals. The Eagles offence should be better against the Cowboys, especially if Hurts’ mobility lets him avoid the Cowboys pass rush.

The fact that the quarter of offensive linemen who were limited in practice on Wednesday practiced on Thursday should give Eagles fans terrified of that pass rush confidence that the Eagles will have their line intact.

Reasons to bet the over

The low total is always where you start with this. Throw in the fact that the Cowboys can create short fields for Cooper Rush and the offence, or just score themselves as they did in Week 5, and this number could easily be beat.

If the Eagles prolific offence has to play from behind at all – if there’s an early Dallas Touchdown or a defensive play from the Cowboys – then this will likely go over as Philly gets into a more aggressive script.

Reasons to bet the under

The one weakness the Cowboys defence has is their rushing defence – 18th by DVOA, 25th by PFF. The Eagles will want to take advantage of that, if only to keep the Cowboys pass rush out of Jalen Hurts’ face. That would slow down the game and eat clock.

Combined with the Cowboys’ penchant for field goals, this game could be quite low scoring, even if there’s a lot of combined yards of offence.

Cowboys vs. Eagles Props: Matchups To Watch For

Jalen Hurts Rushing Yards: O/U / (

With the Cowboys ferocious pass rush, Hurts ability to turn what should be sacks into rushing gains will be crucial for the Eagles. If he can avoid the pressure and find some running lanes, that will be critical to the Eagles winning and covering this game.

Brett Maher Field Goals: O/U / ()

Maher has hit 12 field goals in the Cooper Rush era, and has hit 2 or more in every game. With the Cowboys 2nd in the league in FG attempts, as long as Maher – 13/14 for the season so far – hits the opportunities given, this should be an easy Over.

Final Thoughts

This could easily hit 7 once we get confirmation that the Eagles will have their full compliment of offensive linemen good to go.

The worst unit on the field in this game is pretty clearly the Cowboys offence, which is a huge problem for them. The Eagles and Cowboys both have top 6 defences by both PFF and DVOA, but the gaps in the offences will hurt Dallas.

Cooper Rush is a nice story, but he’s not leading a particularly good offence. Yes, the running game has been efficient, but if they fall behind, they’ll have to rely on Rush more than they have at any point so far.

If the Eagles have a healthy offensive line – as all indications suggest they will – then they should be able to mitigate the Cowboys’ pass rush, and beat a weak run defence.
