The Dallas Cowboys and the Philadelphia Eagles hate each other, no matter what’s on the line. So expect these two teams to go hard in the final week of the 2021 NFL regular season. Check out our preview below of this Cowboys-Eagles Week 18 showdown.
Betting Preview for the Dallas Cowboys vs Philadelphia Eagles Regular Season Week 18 Game on January 8, 2022
Where: Lincoln Financial Field, Philadelphia
When: Saturday, January 8, 2022, 8:15 PM ET
TV Broadcast: ABC
Betting on the Dallas Cowboys (-7.5)
Regular Season Record: 11-5
Dallas got tripped up in Week 17 by the Arizona Cardinals in a 25-22 home loss. That defeat effectively ends the Cowboys’ four-game win streak. The Cowboys’ offense was quiet for the first three periods of the Arizona game before waking up in the fourth. It was a matter of being too late for Dak Prescott and company, but for the Cowboys, it’s still good to see that their offense did not go silent the entire contest. Prescott finished with 226 passing yards and three touchdowns with zero interceptions against the Cardinals. That same offense will look to duplicate what it did to the Eagles in a 41-21 home win back in Week 3. In that contest, Prescott also threw for three touchdowns and zero picks with 238 passing yards on 21/26 completions. The Cowboys, however, will be without wide receiver Micheal Gallup, who suffered a season-ending injury in Week 17.
The Cowboys are 4-0 against the spread in their last 4 games as a road favorite.
Betting on the Philadelphia Eagles (+7.5)
Regular Season Record: 9-7
Like the Cowboys, the Eagles’ offense had a slow start in Week 17. However, Philly overcame that to secure a 20-16 come-from-behind road win over the Washington Football Team. The Eagles have turned it up late this season, having collected wins in all of their past four outings to tremendously boost their chances to make the playoffs. Philly missed the services of Miles Sanders due to injury, but Boston Scott was up to the task. Scott led the Eagles with 47 rushing yards and two touchdowns. Sanders isn’t expected to be back until the playoffs, so expect Scott to handle an expanded role anew in Eagles’ run game that is averaging a league-best 160.4 rushing yards per contest. Also watch out for tight end Dallas Goedert, who led the Eagles in receiving yards against the Football Team. He also paced Philly in the first meeting with the Cowboys with 66 receiving yards on just two catches and four targets.
The Eagles are 3-1-1 against the spread in their last 5 home games.
The Cowboys win, 27-21.
