Betting Preview for the Philadelphia Eagles vs Dallas Cowboys Regular Season Week 3 Game on September 27, 2021
Where: AT&T Stadium, Arlington
When: Monday, September 27, 2021, 8:15 PM ET
TV Broadcast: ESPN
Betting on the Philadelphia Eagles (+4)
Regular Season Record: 1-1
The Eagles bowed down to the San Francisco 49ers in Week 2 to the tune of a 17-11 score at home. The loss came a week after Philly handed the Atlanta Falcons a 32-6 walloping. While the win over the Falcons showed promise for the Eagles, the loss to the Niners was a reality check for Philadelphia that it’s got a long way to go before it can be taken as a serious Super Bowl contender. Nevertheless, the Eagles must be happy with what they’re seeing thus far from their young quarterback in Jalen Hurts. The former Oklahoma Sooners star has passed for 454 yards and three touchdowns with zero interceptions so far this season. He’s also pacing the team on the ground this year with 144 rushing yards to go with a TD on 17 carries. Hurts mobility and ability to tuck the ball and run with it for lots of yards should challenge Dallas’ defense that is 15th in the NFL in points allowed. The Eagles have the second-best rushing game in the league thus far, as they are averaging 162.0 rushing yards per game.
The Eagles are 6-2 against the spread in their last eight games after failing to cover in the previous contest.
Betting on the Dallas Cowboys (-4)
Regular Season Record: 1-1
Finally, Dak Prescott tasted a win again after a long wait. The Cowboys won for the first time this season in Week 2, as they beat the Los Angeles Chargers on the road, 20-17. Prescott sliced through the Chargers’ defense, completing 22 of 27 passes for 237 passing yards. He was not able to pass for a touchdown and got intercepted once, but he marched the team into scoring drives. Also, that was the fourth time in his career that he had at least an 85.0 pass completion percentage in a game. He could get the fifth one in Week 2 against the Eagles’ defense that has yet to record an interception. The Cowboys could be without wide receiver Amari Cooper, though, as he hurt his ribs in the Chargers game. Dallas is already without Michael Gallup so rolling out without Cooper in Week 3 could lead to a bigger load for the team’s rushing attack that’s now become a two-headed monster of sorts. Tony Pollard remains as RB2 but he’s looking like challenging Ezekiel Elliott for the top tailback throne on the roster.
The Cowboys are 5-1 against the spread in their last six games overall.
The Cowboys win, 27-24.
