Dallas Cowboys vs. Philadelphia Eagles: Point spread and odds

 We begin our final NFL regular season week preview with the football game Dallas Cowboys vs. Philadelphia Eagles, taking a look at the current point spread and betting odds offered by the sportsbooks. This NFC East battle remains important for playoff participation - the Dallas Cowboys (9-6) must win the game to snatch the last wild card, while the Philadelphia Eagles (8-5-1) are still in the chase, although they will need not only a victory over the Cowboys on Sunday, but some help in the earlier games, as well. And with both the Eagles and the Cowboys coming out of losing games, the Sunday match-up between the two NFL franchises is bound to attract heavy betting action.

 Looking at the odds and point spread on the Cowboys vs. Eagles game at the online sports betting website Bookmaker, we find the Philadelphia Eagles a small favorite to win with odds -125, while the Cowboys will come out on Lincoln Financial Field as underdog with odds +105 for a victory Sunday. The Dallas Cowboys vs. Philadelphia Eagles point spread is currently sitting at -1.5 points chalk the Eagles with the total expected by the sportsbook at 43 points even. Keep in mind that Dallas is 4-2 against the spread in its last 6 games, but only 1-4 against the spread in its last 5 games on the road. Meanwhile Philadelphia is 5-2 against the spread in its last 7 games at home and the Eagles are 4-1 against the spread in their last 5 games when playing the Cowboys.

 Question mark remains over Cowboys star quarterback Tony Romo, who missed Wednesday practice due to illness, along with tight end Jason Witten, who is nursing ankle injury. Dallas running back Marion Barber, linebacker Bobby Carpenter, and safeties Keith Davis and Ken Hamlin all had a limited Wednesday practice, but wide receivers Isaiah Stanback and Roy Williams did a full one. In Philadelphia defensive end Victor Abiamiri is out for the final week of regular season football, along with guard Shawn Andrews, while linebacker Stewart Bradley, tight end L.J. Smith and running back Brian Westbrook missed practice yesterday. Limited practice for the Eagles had wide receivers Hank Baskett and Kevin Curtis, but wide receiver Greg Lewis had a full one and is expected to be in top shape for the Cowboys vs. Eagles football game, recovered from knee injury.
