Philadelphia Eagles at Dallas Cowboys (-3.5, 51.5)
Market report from Chris Andrews: We’ll do a ton of business on this game by kickoff. The Cowboys bring out the lovers … and the haters. Philadelphia does as well to a lesser extent. My opener of Dallas -4 has come down to -3.5. Over the weekend, the market started trending more toward the Eagles. Many stores adjusted their vigorish. You had to lay -120 to take Philly + 3.5 (lay $120 to win $100, or anything in that ratio). You could get Dallas -3.5 at even money (risk $100 to win $100).
Here at the South Point, we don’t change the vig. I’m still at 3.5 with -110 both ways. If we get more Eagles money, I’ll have to think about coming down to the key number of three. Total hasn’t moved off my opener of 51.5.
Burke: The Cowboys have become a pass-first offense. Dak Prescott didn’t throw as much in last week’s win over the Chargers, but Dallas led that game 14-3 after the first quarter and held a lead throughout. That put the ball in the hands of Ezekiel Elliott and Tony Pollard more often. Dallas also had a lot more success with the run than we’ve seen in most games.
