8:20 PM ET. Cowboys +6.5. 4-1. 123. NBC. Sunday, Oct 16. 5-0. 54

The Dallas Cowboys and Philadelphia Eagles have a long-standing NFC East rivalry. These two teams have always hated each other, but when both teams are looking to be the last undefeated team in the NFC East, this game means even more.

Jalen Hurts and the Eagles are 5-0 and hoping to keep their hot start on track. They have a strong roster and this game will be a huge test for the Cowboys, who will likely be without Dak Prescott once again.

While Dallas certainly hasn’t faced a team as strong as Philly this season, the Eagles also haven’t faced a defense this formidable. The Cowboys’ defense is arguably one of the best in the league and could be the first squad to successfully slow down Hurts, A.J. Brown, and the rest of the Philly offense.

Under the lights of Sunday Night Football, this game will surely be remembered. Until kickoff, let’s go over the best bets, latest odds/spread/money/total, injury report, how to watch, TV channel, and the rest of the Dallas 2022 schedule.

Best Dallas Cowboys bets for Week 6 vs. the Eagles

**All numbers are from FanDuel as of Sunday morning. Please check FanDuel as numbers can change until game time**

1. Under 42.5 Total Match Points (-118)

Under seems to be the way to go so far this season thanks to the Cowboys’ defense. In four of their five contests, the under has hit, and the one time it didn’t (against the Giants), the total was only exceeded by half a point. When Dallas has been underdogs, like they are this week, the under has also hit three of four times.

This defense does not like to give up points and is by far the toughest squad Philly will face so far. Although the Eagles have a high-powered offense, they have yet to deal with a defense this strong. Even if Philly is able to have success, it likely won’t be as much. Plus, Dallas continues to struggle to get into the end zone week after week, which will also help the under.

2. Alternate Spread, Cowboys +7.5 (-142)

The Cowboys are 4-1 against the spread this year. As of Sunday morning, the spread is 6.5. Even though the Eagles are the only undefeated team left, the Cowboys have a lot of weapons.

Aside from the defense keeping Hurts at bay, Cooper Rush is also performing shockingly well. The backup has six TDs with just one pick, giving him one of the highest passer ratings in the league at 95.8. When he’s not passing, he has Ezekiel Elliott as a weapon. Elliott is excellent in his career vs. the Eagles. The RB1 has 131.7 scrimmage yards per game and five touchdowns in 10 games against Philly.

Yes. You have to pay more in juice at -142, but it feels a bit safer to have at least a touchdown to work with. The great news is that if Dallas does get the victory, you’ll win anyway.

3. Tony Pollard, Rushing + Receiving Yards Over 49.5 (-114)

Yes. We know we just said how dominant Elliott is against the Eagles. However, the Cowboys have finally (and wisely) been using Tony Pollard more. Philadelphia is likely going to put most of their attention on Zeke, so Kellen Moore can throw Pollard in from time to time to get big gains.

Last week against the Rams, Pollard beat this number in rushing yards alone with 86 yards. With Dalton Schultz still struggling with a knee injury and a lot of focus being put on CeeDee Lamb, the Cowboys can add Pollard in the passing game for short passes and yards after the catch. We hope to see another great game from No. 20 again on Sunday night.
