Perhaps many people including ourselves were too quick to write off the Eagles (6-8, 6-8 ATS), as they have indeed looked like the “Dream Team” on the NFL odds since Michael Vick returned to the lineup two weeks ago. Look for the Philadelphia resurgence to continue vs. the Cowboys (8-6, 5-8-1 ATS) at Cowboys Stadium in Arlington, TX on Saturday, December 24th at 4:15 ET on FOX.
Believe it or not, the 6-8 Eagles can still win the NFC East if a combination of three things happens on the NFL odds, and none of those three things are unrealistic. First, obviously the Eagles need to win their last two games. Secondly, the New York Giants need to lose to the New York Jets this week, and the Jets are indeed favored. Then thirdly, the Giants need to win at home vs. Dallas in Week 17 next week.
Now that makes predicting this game tricky, as the Giants play at 1:00 ET on Saturday and if they win, the Eagles will be eliminated before this game starts. This forecast assumes that the Eagles are still alive. If the Giants win, then everything changes, including probably the NFL odds on this game.
Current Line at Bookmaker: Dallas (-2) -110, Total 50½
The Eagles looked totally dead before Vick retuned vs. Miami two weeks ago, but they beat the Dolphins handily on the road 26-10 in his first game back and then most tellingly dismantled a good Jets team 45-19 last Sunday, outgaining New York by 179 total yards. Now the Cowboys must attempt to do something they have yet to do in two games vs. the Eagles with Vick as the starter, that being beat them.
Vick faced the Cowboys for the first time as a member of the Eagles at Dallas last season, and Philadelphia accumulated 429 total yards in that 30-27 Eagle victory. His second start against Dallas came at home in Philadelphia earlier this season, and Philadelphia amazingly outgained the Cowboys 495-267 in the yardage department in a 34-7 rout where most of Dallas’s yardage came in a meaningless fourth quarter.
Yes, Dallas is home for this game, but the Cowboys were also at home when they collapsed in the fourth quarter vs. the Giants two weeks ago blowing a 12-point NFL betting odds lead in the final six minutes, and as mentioned, they lost to Vick at home last year, so it is not as if Dallas has made a habit of coming up big at home in big games in recent years.
In fact, this is usually the time of year when quarterback Tony Romo disappears, as he is just 7-16 ATS in his career from December 1st onward! We would not get all that excited about a 31-15 win at Tampa Bay last week either, as the Buccaneers packed it in for this season after that trip across the pond.
Assuming the Giants lost earlier in the day look for Philadelphia to keep hope alive and come up with a huge win in Big D!
NFL Odds Prediction: Take the Philadelphia Eagles (+2)
