Eagles vs. Cowboys Week 3 odds
Spread: Cowboys -3.5
Point total: 52
Moneyline: Eagles +155, Cowboys -180
Our picks for Eagles vs. Cowboys
Pick against the spread: Cowboys -3.5
The teams are 2-2 in the last four meetings, with the Cowboys winning 37-17 at the end of last season in the most recent contest. Dak Prescott is on fire early in this season and Dallas’ defense turned in a strong effort last week against the Chargers, aided in part by LA’s penalties. The Eagles are coming off a rough game against the 49ers offensively and might struggle again here. Take Dallas at home to make it two wins in a row.
Over/under 52 points: Under
This might go against conventional wisdom given Dallas’ defensive struggles but the team did hold a potent Chargers offense to 17 points. The Eagles are coming off a brutal offensive showing against the 49ers. Three of the last four meetings between the two teams have gone under this line, so back the under here.
Preferred player prop: Dak Prescott over 36.5 pass attempts (-110)
Prescott threw the ball 58 times in Dallas’ opener before coming down to 27 attempts last week. Even as the Cowboys look to get things going on the ground, expect the star quarterback to see his attempts go up this week. The Eagles have a strong run defense, meaning Prescott will likely be forced to lead the Cowboys to a win with his arm.
