Cowboys vs Eagles NFL Week 13 NFC East Betting Odds Update

Long time NFC East rivals renew hostilities as the Philadelphia Eagles travel to the Lone Star State to clash with the Dallas Cowboys for NFL Week 13 prime time Sunday Night Football action. While this contest was viewed as a potential preview to the playoffs when the 2012 NFL schedule was drawn up, it’s anything but now. Kickoff from the house that Jerry built is scheduled for 8:20 PM ET on December 2, 2012, from Arlington, Texas. Back the ‘Boys here!

Cowboys vs Eagles NFL Week 13 NFC East Betting Odds Update

Dallas Cowboys: Regroup after Thanksgiving meltdown

About the only thing that Dallas can be thankful for, following a 38-31 home loss to Washington in Week 12, is the fact that they’ve had a full ten days to prepare for the flightless Philadelphia Eagles. Dallas allowed the Redskins jump out to a 28-3 halftime lead before mounting a 28 point charge that fell short in the fourth quarter. Sitting with a 5-6 record (2-3 at home) the Cowboys probably need to win their remaining five games in order to earn an invitation to the NFC playoff party. Dallas can score points in bunches and they would love to bury the hated Eagles in this contest. The monster point spread is a concern for this divisional game.

Philadelphia Eagles: Flightless Green Birds can’t escape NFC cellar

Marred dead last in the National Football Conference with a 3-8 record, Philadelphia is battered and bruised and one of the worst teams in the entire NFL. Showing some grit for two quarters during a 30-22 Week 12 Monday Night Football home loss to the 3-8 Carolina Panthers certainly didn’t impress the bookmakers as the Eagles are huge road underdogs tonight. It doesn’t help that Philly will be without their starting quarterback, running back, and wide receiver on offense as all three are on the shelf with a myriad of injuries. There’s not much fight left in Philadelphia and change is brewing in the City of Brotherly Love.

Built for Canadians and located in the Great White North, we surf over to the online sportsbook for our Cowboys vs Eagles wagering lines. Despite owning a losing record, Dallas has been installed as monster home chalk for this contest. The bookmakers at SportsInteraction have posted the ‘Boys at -11 (110) on the point spread and a gaudy -675 on the money line. Bettors who want to take a shot with the Eagles get a +475 price and the O/U has been set 43 total points. We had to go back to Week 15 in 2007 to find a series spread similar to this one as the Cowboys were -10 point home chalk but  lost 10-6.

Dallas ripped the Eagles 38-23 in Philadelphia back in Week 10 and we don’t see any chance they will lose to this fragile group today. We have a fairly strict rule when it comes to giving up two touchdown spreads in divisional rivalry games. Even though the Eagles have seemingly packed it in, we don’t trust the enigma that is the Dallas Cowboys. We’ll avoid the spread but make our largest wager of the season as we drop a 30% bankroll bet on the Cowboys with the -675 money line at the SportsInteraction sports and entertainment wagering website.
