Best Bets: SNF Eagles VS Cowboys
It’s Cowboys Week! The Eagles will attempt to seize control of the NFC East as Dallas limps into Lincoln Financial Field at 2-5 with a third string quarterback from James Madison at the helm. The Eagles are not a good team by any measure but lets be VERY clear: Dallas stinks!
Last week we premiered ‘Best Bets’ and easily went 4-1 on Eagles-Giants.
My prediction and best bets are below
Eagles 34-Cowboys 23
Carson Wentz over 250.5 yards
Wentz had 319 yards and a 108.3 passer rating in a 17-9 win last season. There is alottt of Wentz hate floating around out there that I believe is driving the number down. This Cowboys defense is among the worst in the league against the pass and overall.
Eagles-Cowboys Over 42.5 pts
Six of the last seven Eagles games as home favorites have gone under the number. So naturally we will go the other way! Both defenses have glaring weaknesses on the defensive side of the ball. This is not your usual NFC East slugfest. Give me the over..
Michael Gallup +550 to score a TD
Last week we went 2-0 on my feeling that Golden Tate is a Philly killer. This guy fits the same mold. Every game we play the Cowboys I feel like Gallup is wide open; we will take him to score.
Ezekiel Elliott over 3.5 receptions (+120)
Ben DiNucci will surely be looking to check it down and get the ball out of his hand quickly. The Eagles strength is in their defensive front and Elliott will be the safety valve for the young quarterback. Zeke has had over 6 receptions in 4 games this season.
Looking to gain some momentum this week so The Misery Report becomes a household name with these posts. Let’s ride.
