Philadelphia had no problem moving the ball up and down the field against Dallas in the first meeting this season, which provides value in playing the betting total Sunday night.

On the Road Again
Dallas is set to play away from home for the fourth time in five games, which is important to consider when making your Week 15 NFL picks, but the squad has managed to produce a perfect 6-0 SU record in that situation.

Cowboys head coach Jason Garrett claims that his roster is built to have success away from AT&T Stadium, as its rebuilt offensive line consistently provides running room for DeMarco Murray, who has leads the league with 1,606 rushing yards.

Over the last two-plus seasons, the franchise is 10-6 SU and 8-8 ATS versus division opponents, with no clear edge in terms of the betting total (8-8 Over/Under).

Know How to Bounce Back
Philadelphia has won all three of its games immediately following a loss during the 2014 campaign, which can’t be ignored when looking over the NFL odds board , as it has outscored opponents by a 108-73 margin in those affairs.

The Eagles were limited to 139 total yards in last week’s 24-14 setback to the Seattle Seahawks as one-point home underdogs—not a surprising result given the fact that quarterback Mark Sanchez was facing his former college coach Pete Carroll.  

It’s important to point out that the team is 7-1 SU and 6-2 ATS when laying any type of number this year, with the OVER cashing in six of those eight opportunities.

Revenge-Minded
The Cowboys are focused on avenging a 33-10 blowout loss to the Eagles as three-point home favorites on Thanksgiving Day, as they were out-gained by a 464-267 margin in that affair.

Garrett has fallen short when playing with revenge during the final four weeks of the season in his coaching career, with Dallas going 2-9 ATS in that role.

Running Lanes
Eagles head coach Chip Kelly loves to create tempo offensively, especially in terms of running the football, which worked brilliantly in racking up 256 rushing yards in the previous meeting last month.

Philadelphia managed to gain 173 of those yards before contact against a stop unit that has limited foes to just 113.1 yards on the ground a contest this season.
