Eagles vs Cowboys Prediction

Even though the Cowboys are favored to pick up the win, I don’t like how their defense finished their last game. I see the Eagles covering the spread as 3.5-point underdogs.

For this week’s matchup, I’m going with the under, as all of Dallas’ previous games have had over/under lines lower than 53. We see this line as too high for these teams, and we expect the game to stay under 53.
