Opening Odds & Line Movement
Open:
-5 -123 at Pinnacle

The NFL odds for this game has moved around a bit as it opened at -5 for the Eagles, then -5.5, then -6, back to -5.5 and it sits at -5 going into the weekend. There are questions on how the Cowboys will do without Bryant, and it sure would be nice to be able to hand it off to DeMarco Murray, but he'll be lining up for the Eagles with revenge on his mind.

Injuries
The Bryant injury is huge for Dallas for a bunch of reasons. Bryant, who signed a massive deal coming into the season, leaves a huge void in the passing game, particularly in the red zone. However, this bodes well for the Eagles and Bryon Maxwell, who was lit up by Julio Jones in the Atlanta loss. Guard Ronald Leary has a groin problem and is questionable, while defensive lineman Randy Gregory is out 4-for-6 weeks with an ankle injury.

The Eagles' biggest worry is David Molk, who tore his biceps and is gone for the season, and this is bad for their offensive-line depth as they lose a backup center. Of course, Sam Bradford is always an injury worry; you could hear all of Philadelphia hold their breath every time he got hit. Still, Bradford put up 336 yards and a touchdown, but he was also picked off twice.

 

Trends
Dallas has been strong ATS recently, going 5-2 in their last seven, and they're 6-1 SU during that time as well. They've also been a juggernaut on the road, where they are 9-1 SU in their last 10, and 8-1 ATS. The Eagles are 1-4 SU And ATS in their last five, but they're 4-2 ATS in their last six at home.

The two have split their last 10 SU and ATS overall, but in Philadelphia, it is Dallas that has the upper hand with a 7-3 SU record and they've covered in six of those games.
