Share |

Philadelphia could be battling for their playoff lives as they take the field on Saturday afternoon to face the Dallas Cowboys in a much anticipated week sixteen affair from the NFL.

The sportsbook to bet the Eagles and Cowboys game is Oddsmaker because the players always get the best bonuses in the industry.

The current odds at Oddsmaker shows the home club Dallas Cowboys as -1 ½ point favorites with a total of 50 ½ points.

A money line bet on Dallas will return -125 odds.

If you want to bet on the Eagles on the money line at Oddsmaker your return is +105 odds.

With a New York Giants win in the early game against the Jets, the Eagles will be eliminated from the playoffs.

A Giants win guarantees either the Cowboys or Giants to finish with either 9 wins or at least seven losses and the Eagles can finish the year no better than an 8-8 record should they win out.

The Cowboys and Giants face off in week seventeen.

Atlanta and Detroit have nine wins so the Eagles cannot be a wildcard team.

Head coach Andy Reid could be making a case for his return to Philadelphia in 2012 as the team has looked outstanding posting consecutive wins since their Thursday night debacle at Seattle three weeks back.

The play of the Eagles defense has much approved as he club had forced seven turnovers and allowed an average of 14 ½ points and 220 yards.

A win by Dallas coupled with a loss by the Giants in the early game to the Jets will give the Cowboys the NFC east division.

Dallas hit a late season slide of two straight losses but responded last Saturday night with a convincing 31-15 win at Tampa Bay.

The Cowboys face a difficult task here because they are without running back DeMarco Murray and Felix Jones has been listed as questionable with a hamstring problem.

This means the team may turn over the offense fully to Tony Romo and we have seen Romo not handle the task of a one dimensional offense very well.

Romo has problems protecting a lead late often settling for high risk throws rather than ball control safe throws that eat time off the clock.

In their first meeting this year the Eagles pounded Dallas by the score of 34-7 on Sunday night football.

Philadelphia stormed to the 24-0 first half lead and was never challenged.

The Eagles pounded the Cowboys defense for 239 yards rushing in their win.

The Eagles and Cowboys will get it on from Dallas on Christmas Eve Saturday in the late afternoon game at 4:15PM Eastern Time.

You can watch this game regionally over most of the national on FOX television.
