Opening Odds & Line Movement
Open: -2.5 -117 at Pinnacle
The Eagles opened the NFL odds at -2.5, then the line went to -3 before going back to -2.5 because really, can the sportsbooks trust either team? The Cowboys have an excuse as they've dealt with serious injuries to star players, but the Eagles just can't seem to get on track. Even when they scored 63 points in wins over New Orleans and the Giants, they didn't look right and then they lost in Carolina. The Eagles are now also 1-3 SU on the road this season.

Injuries
For the Eagles, it looks like LB Kiko Alonso will return from a knee injury that he suffered in Week 2 when the Cowboys beat the Eagles 20-10 in Philadelphia. T Jason Peters is expected to return from a back injury, while WR Nelson Agholor has an ankle knock that might keep him out of this game.

The Cowboys got a boost as QB Tony Romo is throwing in practice now, but he can't return from his broken collarbone until November 22nd, so it's still Matt Cassel time. Off the field, Dallas released troubled RB Joseph Randle for a number of reasons. If you're getting released by the Cowboys for off-field reasons, you need to take a step back. Speaking of, DE Greg Hardy has a banged-up leg, but he should play this weekend.

 

Trends
Philadelphia is 3-4 ATS overall this season, but they're 1-3 ATS on the road. The Cowboys are 2-5 ATS overall and they're 1-3 ATS at home. The total is set for 44.5, and the Eagles have gone under in six of seven games, while the Cowboys have done the same in four of their last six.

The Cowboys are 6-4 SU and 5-5 ATS in their last 10 games with the Eagles, who are 6-4 SU and ATS in their last 10 trips to Dallas.
