The Dallas Cowboys look to steamroll into the playoffs when they wrap up the regular season in Philadelphia. Check out this betting preview replete with choice week 17 NFL picks.

Dallas Cowboys vs Philadelphia Eagles

Point Spread Value

The Cowboys improved to 13-2-0 with a commanding win over the Lions that saw them cover as the -6.5 closing home chalk on MNF. The latest impressive performance has the Cowboys to a 10-5-0 ATS record with an 8.6 winning margin and +6 differential versus the spread. Technically, the Cowboys have done all they need to do to set up the best possible scenario for the playoffs. Coach Jason Garrett though warns that's no reason for the Cowboys to let up. They'll be looking to throw down the gauntlet with a final victorious lap around the league. Starters are sure to be rested for the better part of the game but if the Cowboys maintain the intensity they look a sure-fire week 17 NFL pick to cover on the road.

The Survivor

The Cowboys put a foot wrong only twice this season, both times to divisional rivals the NY Giants. The rest of the field has bowed to their impressiveness and the assured play of rookie quarterback Dak Prescott. While it's unlikely the starters will play the entire game, one has to like the Cowboys to finish on a winning note.
