DALLAS – The Dallas Cowboys will host the Philadelphia Eagles on Monday night in an NFC East matchup. Some betting lines for the matchup look a little more enticing than others.
Cowboys Vs. Eagles Total: UNDER 51.5
The Philadelphia Eagles have yet to see a total for a game go past 40 points, yet regulated sports betting sites have the total for their game against the Dallas Cowboys set above 50.
Cowboys Vs. Eagles Total Odds
- OVER 51.5 -110
- UNDER 51.5 -110
The Cowboys had the season opener go north of this mark but it was against the Tampa Bay Buccaneers, who are averaging over 63 points per game. The average score of an Eagles game is 33 points, while the average total for a Cowboys game is 48.5 points. Nothing truly points towards the OVER.
First-Quarter Total: OVER 10.0
While the game overall may not be a high-scoring affair, the first quarter could very well be. The Cowboys have averaged the most first-quarter points per game this season and this average alone is higher than the set total.
Cowboys Vs. Eagles First-Quarter Total
- OVER 10.0 -110
- UNDER 10.0 -120
Philadelphia has scored points in each first quarter thus far while Dallas has both scored and allowed points in each first quarter. NFL betting sites may be underestimating these teams’ ability to start the game quickly.
Jalen Hurts Rushing Yards: Over 55.5
Jalen Hurts is averaging 72 rushing yards per game this season and is now given a total far below his season average. Plus, he has a history of success against Dallas.
Jalen Hurts Rushing Total
- OVER 55.5 -130
- UNDER 55.5 EVEN
In Hurts’ start against the Cowboys last season he ran for 69 yards on nine carries. Over his last six games, dating back to last season, Hurts averages 69.33 rushing yards per game and has only gone UNDER this number once. Online sportsbooks have seemingly set this number way too low.
The game begins at 8:15 p.m. EST and will be aired on ESPN.
