Dallas Cowboys at Philadelphia Eagles Betting Preview for Week 9

In a highly anticipated Week 9 showdown in the National Football League, the Dallas Cowboys will face off against the Philadelphia Eagles this Sunday. The Cowboys currently boast a 5-2 record for the season, positioning them in second place within the NFC East.

They are trailing the Eagles by a margin of 1.5 games in the division standings. Dallas is coming off a commanding victory against the Rams from their last game. On the other hand, the Philadelphia Eagles have displayed their dominance with a remarkable 7-1 record, making them the top team in the entire NFL.

The defending NFC Champions secured a second win against Washington in their previous game. In the upcoming clash, the Philadelphia Eagles are favored to win by a margin of -3 points against the Dallas Cowboys.

AJ Brown Shines as Key Player for the Eagles 

As Week 9 kicks off, AJ Brown stands out as one of the leading receivers in the National Football League. Barring Tyreke Hill, there’s hardly an argument against Brown’s exceptional performance. Brown is just 61 yards away from reaching 1,000 receiving yards for the season, having amassed 60 receptions and five touchdowns. Jalen Hurts continues to connect with him effectively, having thrown 13 touchdown passes.

Hurts has also been a valuable asset with his rushing abilities, leading the team with six rushing touchdowns, despite D’Andre Swift being the primary running back with 571 yards. However, concerns persist over Hurts’ 10 turnovers. Apart from Brown, DeVonta Smith and Dallas Goedert have excelled in the receiving game, amassing over 800 yards and five touchdowns combined.

Philadelphia is set to face their divisional rival in the upcoming game and will have a bye week following that before taking on a challenging stretch of games. The Eagles will take on the Chiefs, followed by the Bills and the 49ers, before facing trips to Dallas and Seattle.

Dak Prescott Key Factor for Cowboys 

The success of the Dallas Cowboys undeniably hinges on the performance of Dak Prescott. When Prescott plays at his best, the team is nearly unbeatable, as demonstrated in their recent victory over the Rams when he threw for over 300 yards and four touchdowns.

CeeDee Lamb has emerged as Prescott’s top target, with 46 receptions, 633 yards, and three touchdowns. Running back Tony Pollard has also become a significant presence in the receiving game with 26 receptions. Jake Ferguson has contributed to the team’s success with 25 receptions, two of which resulted in touchdowns.

Pollard leads the Cowboys’ ground game with 108 carries, a significant lead over Rico Dowdle, who has 33 carries. Pollard has accumulated 423 yards and two rushing touchdowns this season, while Prescott has also contributed with a rushing touchdown.

The Cowboys’ upcoming schedule includes a home game against the New York Giants in Week 10, followed by a trip to Carolina for Week 11, and a Thanksgiving Day matchup against the Commanders in Dallas.

Eagles Stay Ahead

The Philadelphia Eagles are currently the team to beat in their division, leading until someone can prove otherwise. The connection between Jalen Hurts and AJ Brown is one of the most potent in the NFL, making it a tough task for any opponent. If the Cowboys attempt to contain this duo, Hurts has other weapons at his disposal or can rely on their ground game.

The Eagles are expected to pick up a home victory, inching closer to a divisional title. The smart bet in this game favors the Philadelphia Eagles with a -3-point spread against the Dallas Cowboys.
