This week’s edition of Saturday Night Football has two matchups, but we’ll focus on the latter of the two — Dallas Cowboys at Philadelphia Eagles — for this article. Both teams have already clinched their respective playoff spots, so it will certainly be interesting to see how both teams handle this particular setting.
Here, I will provide the top NFL Football picks, odds, and lines for the Cowboys at Eagles matchups tonight.
Saturday Night Football Picks – Cowboys at Eagles
Cowboys at Eagles – Expert Pick Against The Spread
Pick: Eagles +5 (-110)
Hopefully, you read my article this week about taking the Eagles earlier in the week. Now, they’re at +5, as opposed to the almighty zaftig number of +7.
There are so many moving factors within the game, and it doesn’t even appear as if this one will actually mean anything in the overall NFC Playoff picture. After all, the Eagles have already clinched a playoff spot while the Cowboys have already clinched the NFC East title. There’s not a whole lot that either team can gain from this matchup, so let’s just take the points and be merry with it.
Cowboys at Eagles – Over/Under Pick
Pick: Under 43.5 Points (-110)
Following suit from the former bet, it doesn’t look like this will be one of the more entertaining Cowboys-Eagles matchups. In fact, we’re probably going to see two backup QBs duking it out back and forth; and neither backup QB is that bad. In all actuality, both backup QBs lead their team to big wins at some point this season.
At the end of the day, this is going to look more like a preseason game. Despite having faith in both backup QBs, I can’t say the same for the supporting casts around them. Look for this to be a 20-17 finish, or something along those lines.
Cowboys at Eagles – Game Prop
1st Scoring Play: Eagles Touchdown (+250)
There is nothing to play for, but that doesn’t mean the Eagles don’t want to stomp their hated rivals. I’m looking for an Eagles score nice and early, and then they can hopefully keep tacking it on – defensively, of course, because we don’t want too many points. This should be one of the most boring games of the season – and that’s OK with two teams that are heading into the playoffs already.
