Gambling lines always add a wrinkle to watching an NFL game, and the Dallas Cowboys vs. Philadelphia Eagles game tonight is no exception.
The Cowboys are favored tonight by 5.5 points according to MyBookie.LV. While the over/under is set at 43 points. That’s a rather wide spread in a game between two NFC East rivals, but we’d still bet on the Cowboys and take the over in this situation.
The prop bets also add some intrigue, and here are couple that have caught our attention.
Who scores first and how quick will that happen tonight? The Cowboys are -135 on that front, while the Eagles are healthier looking +105. If you’re betting this one, we think you should look at the Eagles, who are expected to try and throw Dallas out of rhythm and take the ball first.
How about the longest touchdown of the game? Oddsmakers have it set at 40 1/2 yards. Do you think the Cowboys will break off a long score? What about Philadelphia? They’ll be an explosive play in this game, possibly on special teams, so take the over on this prop bet.
Who scores the Cowboys first touchdown for Dallas? Ezekiell Elliott is favored to due that, but Dez Bryant and Cole Beasley are next on the list. Against this Eagle defense, we’re going with Beasley who will get open for a short touchdown reception in the red zone.
