Philadelphia at Dallas- NFL Week 11 Sunday Night Game Preview and Pick

Philadelphia at Dallas- NFL Week 11 Sunday Night Game Preview and Pick

VietBet Total Line: 48

 

The 8-1 Philadelphia Eagles come off a bye week with an opportunity to extend their lead in the NFC East this Sunday night against the 5-4 Dallas Cowboys. Game time from AT&T Stadium in Dallas is set for 8:30 p.m. (ET) on NBC.

 

Philadelphia at Dallas Game Preview

 

The Eagles will be looking to pick things up where they left off as the top team in the NFL this season. They have also been a great team to bet on at 7-2 against the spread and the total has gone OVER in six of their first nine games. Philadelphia has covered in three of its first four road games this season and it is 5-1 ATS when closing as a favorite.

 

Right across the board, this has been one of the best offenses in the league under the direction of second-year quarterback Carson Wentz. The Eagles are ranked fourth in the league in average yards per game (377.0) and they move to second in scoring with 31.4 points per game. They have also been productive on the other side of the ball with 16 takeaways including 11 interceptions.

 

Dallas slid further off the pace in the NFC East title race at 5-4 both SU and ATS with last Sunday’s 27-7 loss to Atlanta as a 3.5-point road underdog. They total stayed UNDER 49 points in that game on VietBet’s closing line after going OVER in five of its previous seven contests. The Cowboys are an even 2-2 ATS at home this season with the total evenly split as well.

 

The loss of Ezekiel Elliott for at least four games due to a league suspension has already had a major impact on the Cowboys’ offense. He rushed for 783 yards in his first eight games as part of the team’s 143.6 rushing yards per game. In the absence of a solid ground game, Dak Prescott was sacked eight times in Sunday’s loss while only throwing for 176 yards. The Cowboys ended that game with 233 yards of total offense.

Even with Elliott in the lineup on Sunday night, it would have been a tall task for the Cowboys’ offense to keep pace on the scoreboard against the high-flying Eagles. Division battles between these two bitter rivals are always hard-fought contests, but I will lay the three points at VietBet and take Philadelphia to cover on the road.
