Normally, I don’t do a Fave Five for Sunday Night Football. However, I had some spare time on my hands and like several of the prop bets in tonight’s game between the Dallas Cowboys and Philadelphia Eagles. If you’ve had a good day, now is the time to re-invest some of that money. If you had a bad down, now is the time to double down. However, which bets should you place for tonight’s game? Here are my five favorite prop bets for tonight’s NFC East showdown.
Be sure to place your bets with Jazz Sportsbook for the best odds and excellent promotions.
Travis Fulgham Over 62.5 Receiving Yards (-125)
Since Week 4, Fulgham has taken over as the Eagles’ top receiving option. He has at least 57 receiving yards in every game and is averaging 99 receiving yards per game over the last three contests. Furthermore, he has three straight games with double-digit targets. Meanwhile, the Cowboys’ secondary can’t stop a nose bleed, let alone wide receivers. Despite playing some underwhelming wide receivers, the Cowboys are giving up an average of 171.4 yards per game to the position. Furthermore, they have given up at least 112 yards to wide receivers in every game this season. Look for Fulgham to have his fourth straight game with at least 70 yards before the start of the fourth quarter.
Amari Cooper Over 4.5 Receptions (-120)
Yes, Ben DiNucci is making his first career start, and yes, that should scare gamblers. However, he has to throw the ball to someone, and Cooper has been the most consistent Cowboy wide receiver this season. Despite playing with three quarterbacks, Cooper has at least seven targets in all but one of his games this season. Furthermore, he has caught 14 of 17 targets over the last two weeks. Even if the Eagles get out to a big lead, that will open up the door for Cooper to see plenty of garbage time receptions later in the game.
Boston Scott Over 58.5 Rushing Yards (-134)
Miles Sanders will miss tonight’s game with a knee injury, giving Scott the featured role once again. Last week, with Sanders out of the lineup, Scott had 46 yards on 12 attempts. However, tonight he faces an awful Cowboys run defense. So far this season, the Cowboys have given up at least 85 rushing yards to the position in every game. Furthermore, they gave up almost 200 rushing yards to the Washington Football Team’s running backs last week. Whether the game turns into a blowout or remains a close battle throughout, expect Scott to have no trouble hitting the over on this prop.
Amari Cooper Over 54.5 Receiving Yards (-112)
If Cooper is going to catch the ball, it’s going to be for positive yards. Cooper is averaging almost 11 yards per receptions this season and has at least 79 receiving yards in all but one game. Furthermore, Cooper is averaging 10.3 targets per game this season and should be a favorite target of DiNucci’s. Meanwhile, the Eagles have struggled to slow down wide receivers, giving up at least 120 receiving yards to the position in all but one game this season. While Cooper won’t have a big performance, he should have no problem finishing the game with six catches for 65 or more yards.
Carson Wentz Over 1.5 Passing Touchdowns (-162)
Without a doubt, Wentz has been the reason the Eagles are in first place in the NFC East division. He has two or more passing touchdowns in more than half his games this season, including in three straight contests. Furthermore, Wentz will get back some weapons tonight as Jalen Reagor and Dallas Goedert will play for the first time since Week 3. Meanwhile, the Cowboys have given up at least two passing touchdowns in five of their last season games this season. Furthermore, quarterbacks are averaging over two passing touchdowns per game against the Cowboys. Don’t be surprised if this game turns into a blowout, and Wentz has three passing touchdowns before the start of the fourth quarter.
