The Eagles are 1-6 ATS in their last 7 road games and 1-4 ATS in their last 5 games as a road underdog. The Cowboys are 5-11 ATS in their last 16 Monday games and 5-1 ATS in their last 6 games overall. The under is 9-3 in Eagles last 12 games overall. The over is 5-2 in Cowboys last 7 games overall. The Eagles are 1-4 ATS in their last 5 meetings in Dallas and 2-5 ATS in their last 7 meetings.
The Eagles have been hit or miss through two games, while the passing game has struggled and the offense has had issues finishing drives. The Cowboys took the defending champs down to the wire and then went on the road to beat the Chargers. This will be the home opener for the Cowboys, so expect a hostile crowd. The Cowboys have not only been the more impressive team up to this point, but the home team has won and covered seven of the last 10 meetings between the Eagles and Cowboys. I’ll take the Cowboys by a touchdown.
