The Dallas Cowboys have been waiting around for a few days after they won a thriller over the Seattle Seahawks on Thursday Night Football. The win moved the Cowboys to 9-3 on the season, but they were still trailing the Philadelphia Eagles in the NFC East, who were 10-1 heading into their game with the San Francisco 49ers,
They are now 10-2. The 49ers busted up the Eagles just like they did the Cowboys earlier this season. That means when the Eagles visit the Cowboys next Sunday, Dallas can take over the lead in the NFC East, although Philadelphia would still control their destiny based on how tiebreakers shake out. And Dallas has a very tough road ahead, while the Eagles have an easier slate. Still, hope will be alive for the Cowboys to catch the Eagles in the division.
As for that game next week, it will be at home where the Cowboys have been on fire. They say being the home team is worth roughly three points, and that seems to make sense here. According to DraftKings Sportsbook, Dallas is a 3-point favorite over the Eagles.
The Cowboys are on a 14-game winning streak at home, and will need this game to give them a real chance at capturing the NFC East and avoiding being a wild card in the playoffs.
Would you give the three points and bet on Dallas?
