Bird Bets: Christmas Eve Player Props for Eagles at Cowboys
Sitting in my hotel room in Montreal for the holidays, a sudden panic crept over me this morning as I nervously logged into DraftKings Sportsbook. As I suspected, our neighbors to the North do not care for gambling on American Football, even though it’s Dallas Week.
With the biggest game of the Birds’ season on deck against Dallas on Christmas Eve, I need to live out my degenerate betting vicariously through the fans of Liberty Line and hope to make everyone some decent holiday cash.

Eagles Prop Bets #1
Dallas Goedert OVER 41.5 yards (-115)
Dallas Goedert Anytime TD (+255)
Goedert v. Dallas 2-Leg SGP: Anytime TD & 45+ REC YDS (+425)
Gardner Minshew loves consistently targeting those underneath routes and letting his playmakers do the work. Goedert finished with a game-high six catches for 102 yards and two touchdowns in last year’s Week 13 matchup against the Jets. With the Eagles’ third option back, Goedert could play a pivotal as Gardner’s security blanket on Christmas Eve.
Eagles Prop Bets #2
Miles Sanders OVER 64.5 (-115)
Miles Sanders Anytime TD (-110)
Boobie Miles 2-Leg SGP: Anytime TD & OVER 69.5 rush yds (+255)
Last week, Shane Steichen and the Eagles’ offensive game plan came under scrutiny after Miles Sanders rushed only 11 times. Steichen seems to have become a little obsessed with those home run plays and isn’t focusing on the “inside jabs” that set up those haymaker touchdowns.
I think we are in for a massive overcorrection this week, especially with Minshew under center. Last week, the Cowboys surrendered 192 yards on the grounds to Jacksonville and 114 to the lowly Texans the week before. Overall, Dallas ranks 24th in the NFL in total run defense, giving up an average of 133.1 yards per contest.
Eagles Prop Bets #3
Josh Sweat OVER 0.75 sacks (LINE TBD)
Haason Reddick OVER 0.75 sacks (+125)
Micah Parsons UNDER 0.25 sacks (+110) – pure spite bet
The Cowboys have sent their rookie left tackle, Tyler Smith, into a baptism by fire after stating he would start the season at left guard, only to thrust him into arguably the most demanding position in football.
Last week against the Jaguars, Smith allowed a game-high two sacks on five pressures. On the season, he’s surrendered 14 more QB pressures than any other lineman (54) and is the only Dallas Cowboys player with more than two sacks allowed with SIX total.
