Why the Eagles can cover
Only the Raiders have racked up more yardage than the Cowboys on offense this year, so the underdogs are in for a challenge. Dallas ranks fifth in passing yards per game with 306, but Philadelphia has done a strong job shutting down opposing teams' passing attacks. The Eagles secured the third-ranked scoring defense by allowing just 162.5 passing yards per game through Weeks 1 and 2. The Cowboys have gotten 70 percent of their yardage through the air so far this season.
Philadelphia doesn't have the most impressive receiving corps in the NFL, but Hurts can make up for that with his athleticism. The sophomore quarterback leas the Eagles in passing (454) and rushing (144) yards and can create home-run plays with his legs out of what seems like nothing.
Why the Cowboys can cover
Dallas is 2-0 against the spread this season and owns an excellent record against Philadelphia. The Cowboys are 4-1 against the spread in their previous five games against the Eagles at AT&T Stadium. The Cowboys are also 8-3 against the spread in their last 11 matchups against the Eagles. Dak Prescott didn't play in either of the previous two meetings.
Philadelphia has given up the fourth-fewest passing yards per game this season but hasn't gone up against an offense like Dallas' yet. The Falcons are rebuilding their receiving corps following the departure of Julio Jones, while the 49ers neglected to utilize Brandon Aiyuk in Week 2. Dallas has two studs in CeeDee Lamb and Amari Cooper out wide. The duo can stretch secondaries like few others and open the field for running backs Ezekiel Elliott and Tony Pollard. The Cowboys rank second in yards per game, and a middle-of-the-pack offense could struggle to keep up.
