The over is 7-1 in the Dallas Cowboys' last eight Sunday home games.

Betting Impact:

The current total for Dallas's Week 16 home matchup with the Philadelphia Eagles is 49.5, per BettingPros consensus odds. These two teams played a 23-9 defensive struggle in early November, but Philadelphia's offense looks like it has kicked into another gear ever since naming Jalen Hurts the starting quarterback. Dallas ranks last in the league in rush defense, which could be problematic against Philadelphia's read-option attack. In addition, over backers should be encouraged by Dallas running back Tony Pollard's 132-yard and two touchdown performance. If Ezekiel Elliott were to miss this game with an injury, bettors would likely have the confidence that Dallas's running game would not miss a beat with Pollard as the primary ball handler.
