Eagles Lose And Fail To Cover The Spread In Dismantling By Cowboys

Posted on October 21, 2019

The Philadelphia Eagles got absolutely smoked by the Dallas Cowboys, by a final score of 37-10. At half time, the game was 27-7 in favor of the Cowboys, and it was just about over from there. 

The Eagles offense was terrible, and the defense may have been even worse. We take a look at how the bets and odds ended up looking with this game, as well as what went wrong for the Eagles. 

What went wrong for the Eagles vs. Cowboys

Basically every single player on the Cowboys played better than their same position on the Eagles.

  • Eagles quarterback Carson Wentz only had 191 yards and one touchdown, to Cowboys quarterback Dak Prescott’s 239 yards and two touchdowns.
  • Eagles running back Jordan Howard only had 50 yards to Cowboys running back Ezekiel Elliott’s 111 yards and a touchdown.
  • Eagles wide receiver Alshon Jeffery only had 38 yards to Cowboys’ wide receiver Amari Cooper’s 111 yards.

Do I need to keep going? 

The Eagles’ defense was gassed for 428 total yards and four touchdowns. There’s not much else to say except that the Eagles played terribly, and the Cowboys played great.

People are wondering what is going on with Zach Ertz, the tight end who continues to underperform.

Betting and odds for Eagles vs. Cowboys

The Cowboys covered the minus-3 spread, and it was the under 49.5 that hit, as the game only had 47 total points. Going into this game about 70% of bets were on the Eagles, and that means 71% of bettors went to bed Sunday night very upset.

Dallas is now 4-3 against the spread, and the Eagles dropped to 2-5 against the spread.

Things are not going to get any easier for the Eagles, as they head to Buffalo to take on the 5-1 Bills. Right now the Eagles are being given 1.5 points (+1.5), and the over-under is set at 43.5. The Eagles have not proven that they are a team that should be bet on, but hopefully they can change things up this weekend.
