What are the best bets to make on Week 3’s matchup between the Philadelphia Eagles and Dallas Cowboys?

It’s truly a week-to-week grind in the National Football League. The Philadelphia Eagles set their fan base on fire with an opening weekend road win. Then, one week later, they handed a win in their home opener to the visiting San Francisco 49ers.

What does Week 3 have in store? No one ever knows when the Birds and Dallas Cowboys get together, but Philadelphia has lost three straight in Arlington to their arch-nemesis. Let’s get into some best bets for the next Monday Night Football game.

Best Philadelphia Eagles bets for Week 3

Bet No. 1

  • More Passing + Receiving Yards (D. Prescott + A. Cooper + C. Lamb over J. Hurts + D. Smith + J. Reagor

It seems as though, even though this is a game that the Philadelphia Eagles have a shot at winning, that it may not be done by beating Dallas in a shootout. Dak Prescott, at this point of his career, is a more evolved passer than Jalen Hurts.

Not only that, even though Darius Slay has had success versus Amari Cooper in his career, it’s hard to believe the trio of Jalen Hurts, Jalen Reagor, and DeVonta Smith will put up more passing and receiving yards than the trio of Dak Prescott, Amari Cooper, and CeeDee Lamb. Philly’s best shot at winning this game will come by way of running the ball.

Bet No. 2

  • Philadelphia Eagles Under Total, 23.5 points (-105)

Despite the fact that the Eagles have done exactly what the boss, Jeffrey Lurie, has asked and surrounded Jalen Hurts with talent, certain inconsistencies have come to the surface. Jalen Hurts’ deep ball is okay at best. Quez Watkins, at this point of his career, does two things well. He’s good in the screen game, and he can go deep. That’s it.

DeVonta Smith and Jalen Reagor are good, but they aren’t making any contested catches, and for some reason, Shane Steichen seems to have no interest in involving Dallas Goedert in the passing game.

The Eagles’ offensive explosion in Week 1 was a mirage. Prior to hanging 32 on the lowly Atlanta Falcons, they hadn’t scored more than 30 points in any game since the 2019 finale versus the New York Giants. Dallas’ defense is much improved, so if you’re taking points for Philadelphia, go with the under in this one.
