Why Bet on the Philadelphia Eagles?
In a couple of games, quarterback Jalen Hurts has completed 67.2% of his passes, thrown for 454 yards, and tossed 3 touchdowns to 0 interceptions. Hurts is averaging 8.5 yards per rush. Jalen has also scored a rushing TD. The Eagles rank second in rushing yards per with 162 each game. Philadelphia’s offensive line might be the best in the league.
After two weeks, Philly’s defense ranks fourth in yards allowed. Opponents average 283 total yards. The Eagles are great against the pass, allowing 162.5 yards per, and okay versus the run, allowing 120.5 each game. Opponents average 11.5 points per versus Philadelphia. One thing to note? The Eagles’ defense has yet to record a takeaway.
Rodgers has played the 49ers 11 times, including the postseason, and has registered a passer rating of 90-plus in 10 of those games and a passer rating of 100-plus in five contests.
The NFL’s best receiver, Davante Adams, had eight catches for 121 yards vs. the Lions but didn’t score. That likely will end here as Adams has a touchdown reception in nine consecutive games on Sunday Night Football, the longest such streak in NFL history. Adams has played in four games against the 49ers (including playoffs), averaging nine receptions, 121.5 yards and a TD per game.
Why Bet on the Dallas Cowboys?
The Cowboys have shown they’ve got one of the best offenses in the NFL. Quarterback Dak Prescott has thrown for 640 yards in just eight quarters. Prescott is completing 76.5% of his attempts. His stats are off the chart except for one, TD-to- INT ratio. Dak has thrown 2 picks to 3 touchdown passes. In week 1, Tampa’s top-ranked rush defense bottled up Zeke Elliot. Dallas’ starting ball-carrier bounced back with a decent 71 yards and a TD versus the Chargers.
In the first game, Dallas’ D gave up 31 points to Tom Brady and the Buccaneers. The defense locked down in the second game, holding the Los Angeles Chargers to 17 points. The Cowboys picked off Justin Herbert twice. Dallas’ defense also sacked Herbert a couple of times.

Eagles vs. Cowboys Expert Betting Predictions
Be careful about picking a winner based on the trends. Betting based on trends can lead to big scores. But in this case, the Philadelphia Eagles are so different than they were last season that it’s impossible to use the trends as the reason to bet against them.
Based on what’s happened in the first two weeks, Dallas is a vulnerable favorite. La’ell Collins, the Cowboys’ starting right tackle, remains suspended. Collins’ absence could end up a big deal in this game because the Eagles have a solid defensive line. If Dallas can’t run the ball, they’ll have troubles. Also, Hurts has x-factor skills, meaning the Cowboys must spy the running quarterback with drop back passer ability.
Versus San Francisco, it took the Eagles’ offense four quarters to get it going. Don’t expect Philadelphia to play the same on Monday night. The Eagles will be aggressive from the first whistle to the last.
The pick is on Philadelphia to cover.
