  • Eagles chasing down Redskins for NFC East crown
  • Cowboys facing virtual must-win to save season
  • Three prop bets that will make you a winner Sunday night

Last week looked like a solid two correct bets out of three, which I could be happy with.

I mean, Davante Adams was red hot and the Patriots secondary was dicey at best.

It was a fair beat. But then in the fourth quarter, Josh Gordon decided to sink my under record for longest TD. Ugggghhh.

But hey, we’re looking forward, and don’t think we’re not touching this same bet again. It’s the Cowboys and Eagles on Sunday night. Here’s the full betting preview. Now, let’s get you paid.

Prop #1: Wentz to Have a Big Night

Will Wentz have at least 324 yards passing? Odds
YES +135

Surprisingly, Wentz’s career-high in passing yards against the Cowboys is 245 yards, throwing for 202 and 168, respectively, in his other starts.

But the Eagles pivot is the bright spot on an offense that is hoping to find its footing for a second half run to the playoffs. To say they were struggling in the first half of the year is relative.

Since Week 4 (just his second start), Wentz’s lowest passer rating is 99.4, and his lowest passing yardage is 278. He’s been on fire.

Now, the Cowboys defense is no slouch, having held four teams to under 200 yards passing already this season.

But none of those opponents were playing at Wentz’s current clip. Toss in a new weapon in Golden Tate that could unlock more dimensions, and this team could be hitting its surge at the right time.

Prop #2: Cowboys/Eagles Will Score a TD Over 40.5 yards

Touchdown longer than 40.5 yards Odds
OVER -115
UNDER -115

No fear, here were go again.

I’m factoring in that divisional games – particularly in the extra goofy NFC East – take on an identity unto its own, and that’s before it’s under the lights of primetime.


Both offenses have combined for just two scoring plays of over 40.5 yards this season. While that’s not good, consider that the Cowboys and Eagles have also surrendered six such scores this season on defense and special teams.

Both are susceptible to a big-play strike: if the Cowboys’ pass rush doesn’t get home, there are openings in that secondary. Conversely, the Eagles just aren’t cohesive on their back end, evidenced with their 25th-place rank in yards allowed per game.

That all adds up to some big plays in this one.

Prop #3: Tate Will Have More Receptions than Cooper

Receiver Odds
Golden Tate -152
Amari Cooper -+104

We end with an ode to the new guys – both acquired around the trade deadline, with Cooper having made his debut a week ago in Dallas’ loss to Tennessee.

Meanwhile, Philly adds a major weapon with certain impact to its receiving core, so it’s stunning that the odds are just at -152 for Tate to out-catch Cooper.

I think Vegas is outthinking themselves in this one, and putting too much into the fact that Tate is making his debut with the Eagles. This one is no contest.

Even after his 8-target, 5-reception performance, Cooper has just 40 targets on the season. Tate has already amassed 44 receptions heading into Week 10.

Meanwhile, Tate’s season-low for catches in a game this year is four, while Cooper has been held to two or fewer catches four times already this season.

Tate will deliver you a win if you take this wager.
