The Philadelphia Eagles and the Dallas Cowboys are set to kick off their Week 13 NFL betting clash on Sunday 12/2, and I’m set to make my football pick for the affair at Dallas Cowboys Stadium. Kickoff is set for 8:20 ET, and I’ve got the perfect NFL pick for this outstanding duel on the gridiron.
Philadelphia Eagles (3-8, 1-9-1 ATS) +11
Dallas Cowboys (5-6, 4-7 ATS) -11
Before I even bother to get started here in this game, I suppose that I should state the bitterly obvious. Dallas is the better of these two teams by a country mile, and the Eagles really shouldn’t have a chance to win this one with QB Nick Foles, RB Bryce Brown, and the combination of WR Jason Avant and WR Riley Cooper leading the way. If Dallas plays up to its potential, it will win this game and win it comfortable.
However, there’s a bit of a numbers game attached to this as well. The Eagles and the Arizona Cardinals, both of which are on massive losing streaks from an ATS standpoint, are due for covers in the biggest of ways, and they are both clearly going to do so at some point.
I also really think there is an issue here for the Cowboys getting a raw deal from the oddsmakers. They are laying more than they should because of the fact that they scored three defensive/special teams touchdowns the last time these two teams met in the City of Brotherly Love to blow open what was a 17-17 game at the end of the third quarter. They also played such terrible football defensively last week against RG3 and the Washington Redskins. This time around, I think that the best play is in an-game teaser, as the Eagles just aren’t scoring more than maybe 20 points – and that’s very, very generous – and they certainly shouldn’t lose this one by more than 18 either.
