Eagles 27, Cowboys 24
The EAGLES (+105) are the STRONGEST PLAY. While Philly isn’t the trendy pick, I love a home team at even money as long as they don’t stink. The Cowboys are -129.

Against the Spread (ATS)
The EAGLES (+1.5, -106) are the play here, too. The Cowboys have just been too “Jekyll and Hyde” this season. You never know which team will show up. Look for Wentz & Co. to continue to find the magic that has led to back-to-back victories.
The OVER47.5 (+105) is worth a small wager. The Cowboys average 27.0 points per game, while the Eagles average 23.9. On the defensive end, the Cowboys allow 20.6 PPG and the Eagles surrender 23.4 PPG. This should be close to the number, but expect a wild finish with the division title up for grabs.
