NFL Odds Week 7 – Cowboys at Eagles

Cowboys and Eagles fight for the top of the NFC East division as they meet this Sunday at Lincoln Financial Field, in what should be a shootout in the NFL week 7.

eagles-cowboysBoth franchises are 3-3 and have looked a lot better than expected over the last two weeks.  The NFL odds have the Eagles as 3 point favorites, and the game total is 55 points.

Philadelphia will go with Nick Foles as their starting QB for the second game in a row.  He has thrown 542 yards, 6 TDs and 0 interceptions over the last game and a half (played half a game against the Giants two weeks ago).

“I feel really comfortable here. I feel comfortable with our personnel, our plays, everything,” Foles said. “It helps when you have a great relationship with the players, the coaches, and when you go into the game you’re all on the same page. … Everybody stuck together, and it was another team win.”

The Cowboys beat the Redskins 31-16 last week and will have to overcome some injuries to face the Eagles.  RB DeMarco Murray is questionable, and LB DeMarcus Ware is a game time decision.

“We have to be able to run the football well when DeMarco Murray is not our runner,” Cowboys coach Jason Garrett said.

Philadelphia is 3-6 SU in its last 9 games when playing Dallas, but the Cowboys are 1-4 ATS in their last 5 games when playing the Eagles.

Both teams have top 5 scoring offenses entering this week, but I’d stick with the under.

His career profits are impressive, but not quite as good as his handsome friend Frank Lorenzo. He wishes he hadn't let Frank write his profile.
