The Philadelphia Eagles will try to enter the playoffs on a five-game winning streak when they host the rival Dallas Cowboys in the teams’ regular season finale on Saturday night at Lincoln Financial Field in Philadelphia. In the last four weeks the Eagles (9-7) have beaten the Jets, Washington twice and the Giants to clinch a wild card spot in the playoffs, which begin next week. Philadelphia will be either the No. 6 or No. 7 seed in the NFC. Meanwhile the Cowboys (11-5) already have clinched the NFC East title and can finish as either the No. 2, No. 3 or No. 4 seeds. The game originally was scheduled for Sunday afternoon but was flexed to a primetime Saturday matchup. 

Kickoff is 8:15 p.m. ET. Dallas is a four-point favorite in the latest Cowboys vs. Eagles odds from Caesars Sportsbook while the over-under for total points scored is 44.5.

Why the Cowboys can cover

Dallas could be facing a Philadelphia team that is resting some starters on Saturday. On Monday Eagles coach Nick Sirianni told a Philadelphia sports talk radio show that he will make a decision later in the week on whether to rest his starters against the Cowboys. Doing so would give the Eagles, particularly quarterback Jalen Hurts, much-needed rest while a win over Dallas would not ensure that Philadelphia improves its first-round playoff matchup.

In addition, the Cowboys have been winning the turnover battle all season. Dallas has a turnover margin of +13, which ranks third in the league. Dallas has been great against the spread this year with its 12-4 ATS mark overall, and the Cowboys are also 7-1 ATS on the road and 9-3 ATS as the favorites. 

Why the Eagles can cover

Philadelphia is playing good complementary football. Over the past nine games, the Eagles offense is averaging 28.8 points per game, which is tied for fourth in the league. On defense Philadelphia is allowing just 16.6 points a game, which also is fourth in the NFL. The Eagles are 7-2 over that time span.

In addition, Philadelphia faces a Dallas team that has struggled running the ball the second half of the season. Over the first seven weeks of the year, the Cowboys ran for 164.3 yards per game, which ranked second in the league. Since then they have averaged just 96.2 rushing yards a game, which is 27th in the NFL.
