Eagles Vs. Cowboys: The Playoffs Have Already Started In Philadelphia

Philadelphia can still win the division by winning their final two games, begining with a classic Eagles vs Cowboys NFC East rivalry game this week.

Win and they are almost in. Lose, and they’re out.

The Philadelphia Eagles did what they had to do in a 10-point win over the Washington Redskins to move to 7-7 Sunday.

Even though the Dallas Cowboys came back to life in a 44-21 win over the Los Angeles Rams and moved to 7-7 as well, the Eagles can still capture the NFC East crown and make the playoffs by winning their final two games of the season.

Playing for all the marbles

Of course, that journey begins at home against those very Cowboys this Sunday, Dec. 22. Kickoff is at 4:25 p.m. at Lincoln Financial Field.

The Eagles can’t clinch the division on Sunday, but a win sets up Philadephia to do that against the New York Giants on Dec. 29. A loss would mean the Cowboys win the NFC East and the Eagles are out of the playoff picture.

Win both games, and the Eagles are in as the No. 4 seed in the NFL Playoffs. Then, they will host a wild card game.

However, beat the Cowboys and drop the Giants game in two weeks, and the Cowboys can earn the postseason berth with a win against the lowly Redskins in the final week of the NFL regular season.

No matter how you slice it, this incarnation of the classic Eagles versus Cowboys NFC East rivalry game is a big one.

Eagles vs. Cowboys lines

Philadelphia on the bigger win streak coming in, but the Cowboys whipped the Eagles 37-10 in Week 7 and heated up against the Rams this week. As a result, the Cowboys have emerged as road favorites at the top sportsbooks in the state.

Here’s a look at the latest Eagles versus Cowboys lines at DraftKings Sportsbook, FanDuel Sportsbook, and William Hill NJ Sportsbook:

Eagles vs. Cowboys history

There have been 121 Eagles-Cowboys games in this historic NFC East rivalry.

Dallas leads the series with a 69-52 record, and they are 3-1 in the postseason against Philadelphia as well.

The playoff implications make this week’s game is as close to a playoff game as a regular-season game can be.

The Cowboys’ Week 7 dismantling of the Eagles marked the fourth win in a row in the series for Dallas. In fact, the Cowboys have won seven of the last 10 Eagles-Cowboys games.

Although, the last Eagles victory in the series was a convincing one. Philadelphia won 37-9 in Dallas back in November 2017 by running the ball down the Cowboys’ throats.

Those who can’t make it to Lincoln Financial Field can watch the game on Fox and bet on it at all the top NJ sportsbooks.

Eagles vs Redskins: Philadelphia Eyes Has Its Eyes On The NFC East

After miraculous second-half comeback on Monday Night Football, tying it up in the fourth quarter and winning with a touchdown in overtime against the New York Giants, the Philadelphia Eagles now control their own NFL Playoff fate.

Run the table in the team’s final three games of the season and they will win the NFC East. A fact that suddenly makes this week’s NFC East rivalry game against the lowly 3-10 Washington Redskins a marquee matchup.

The Dallas Cowboys lost 31-24 to the Chicago Bears on Thursday to drop to 6-7. Right now, Dallas owns the tiebreaker over the equally 6-7 Eagles. But since the teams face each other in two weeks the chances they’ll end up tied seem slim.

Win and you’re in

The Eagles clearly have the easier schedule. After Washington, they’ll have the Cowboys at home on Sunday, Dec. 22. Finally, the Eagles will wrap up the NFL season at MetLife Stadium in New Jersey Dec. 29 against the same Giants team they just beat.

Dallas is at home this week against a suddenly resurgent Los Angeles Rams team sitting at 8-5 and hoping there’s a way they can keep their own playoff hopes alive. After going to Philadelphia, the Cowboys will finish up against the Redskins Dec 29.

The Eagles’ only way into the playoffs is by winning the NFC East. Although there are ways they can back into the division title if Dallas continues to lose, the most simple way to get it is for Philadelphia to win its next three games.

That all starts with the classic NFC East rivalry Eagles vs Redskins matchup Dec 15. at FedExField in Washington.

Eagles vs Redskins lines

FanDuel Sportsbook was the only one of the top NJ sports betting sites to post lines for the game prior to the Eagles’ Monday Night win. It was no surprise to see the Eagles as big road favorites.

DraftKings Sportsbook, PointsBet, and others caught up by Tuesday morning.

Here’s a look at the opening Eagles vs Redskins lines at popular sportsbook apps in NJ:

Eagles vs Redskins history

There have been 171 Eagles vs Redskins games in NFL history. Washington actually leads the series with an 86-79-6 record.

However, the Eagles have won the last five games, including a 32-27 win in Philadelphia back in Week 1. Washington QB Case Keenum went 30 for 44 for 380 yards and 3 TDs in that one.

However, Eagles QB Carson Wentz got the last laugh. He went 28 for 39 for 313 yards and 3 TDs of his own, including a 53-yarder to DeSean Jackson in the third quarter that helped give the Eagles a lead they would not relinquish.

The last time the Redskins beat the Eagles was December 2016, but it did mark Washington’s fifth win in a row versus Philadelphia. Of course, the Eagles have since reeled off five Eagles vs Redskins wins in a row.

Can the Eagles keep this win streak over Washington going? Will Philadelphia keep its hopes of an NFC East title and playoff spot alive?

Bet on what you think will happen at the top NJ sportsbooks starting today.

Eagles Vs. Giants: Can Philadelphia Keep Its NFC East Title Hopes Alive?

The Philadelphia Eagles suffered an embarrassing loss to the Miami Dolphins on Sunday. However, the 5-7 Eagles are still within a game for first place in the NFC East.

With four games to play, that means the playoffs are still a possibility and next week’s Monday Night Football game against the New York Giants has become a marquee matchup and a must-win for Philadelphia.

The 6-6 NFC East-leading Dallas Cowboys’ Thanksgiving Day loss to the Buffalo Bills meant the Eagles could tie things up at the top of the division with a win over the woeful Dolphins Sunday.

Instead, Philadelphia laid an egg at Hard Rock Stadium in South Florida. They blew a 10-0 and 28-14 lead en route to a 37-31 loss to a now 3-9 team most thought was tanking this season.

However, the Eagles division title hopes did not die with this week’s punt in Miami.

Facing the 2-10 Giants twice, the 3-9 Washington Redskins and the Cowboys in Philadelphia means the Eagles have the potentially easier schedule to close things out. The Cowboys also get Washington, but they must face the 6-6 Chicago Bears and 7-5 Los Angeles Rams before the season is said and done.

The Eagles have not yet been mathematically eliminated from one of the two NFC Wild Card Playoff spots up for grabs. But with the 9-2 Seattle Seahawks, 8-3 Minnesota Vikings, the Bears, Rams, and 5-7 Tampa Bay Buccaneers ahead of Philadelphia in the Wild Card race, winning the NFC East title remains the team’s best possibility of getting in the postseason.

That makes beating the Giants next Monday night in Philadelphia is a must.

Eagles vs. Giants opening lines

Considering both team’s records, and the recent history of this bitter NFC East rivalry, most NJ sportsbooks have opened the Eagles versus Giants’ betting markets with Philadelphia as heavy favorites.

Here’s a look at the opening Eagles versus Giants lines at DraftKings Sportsbook, FanDuel Sportsbook and William Hill NJ Sportsbook:

Eagles vs. Giants history

The Eagles versus Giants matchup is one of the most hotly contested in NFL history. There have been 174 games between these two NFC East rivals. The two teams stand knotted up at 86 wins, each with two ties.

However, the Eagles have dominated the matchup over the past five years. In fact, the Eagles have won five in a row and nine out of the past 10.

Last season, the Eagles pummeled the Giants 34-14 in New York in October. The convincing win came behind Eagles QB Carson Wentz‘s 278 passing yards and three TDs.

Then, Philadelphia won 25-22 on a Jake Elliott 43-yard, last-minute field goal in Philadelphia in late November.

Will these recent trends continue? Can the Eagles put the embarrassment in Miami behind them and stay in contention for the NFC East lead?

Jets vs Bengals: NY Playoff Push Makes This A Marquee Matchup

As crazy as it sounds, the once 0-4, then 1-7 New York Jets could be a playoff team this year.

After a 34-3 dismantling of the Oakland Raiders this week, the Jets have won three in a row.

Somehow, the once hapless and winless Jets are now 4-7.

jets vs bengals

The other two wins in the Jets winning streak came against the New York Giants and Washington Redskins. The once dysfunctional Jets offense scored 34 points in each of those games as well.

Jets QB Sam Darnold was an efficient 20 for 29 for 315 yards and two TDs against Oakland. Plus, the Jets defense was equally impressive. They held the Raiders to just a first-quarter field goal and only 208 total yards.

Now, the same Jets team that started out the year as a laughing stock, with its franchise quarterback sidelined by mononucleosis, could now realistically run the table, end the season 9-7, and make the NFL Playoffs as a Wild Card.

Can the Jets run the table?

The Jets face the winless Cincinnatti Bengals and currently 2-9 Miami Dolphins over the next two weeks. Win both and they’ll be within a game of .500.

Then, it’ll be a tough test against the playoff-bound Baltimore Ravens and MVP candidate Lamar Jackson. Finally, the Jets finish things up against the Pittsburgh Steelers and Buffalo Bills.

The +50000 (DraftKings) to +150000 (William Hill) you can get on the Jets winning the Super Bowl is a longshot at most NJ gambling sites.

However, making a small bet is looking less like burning money and more like a shrewd move than it did.

The Jets will likely need to win all five of their remaining games just to get in the postseason. That all starts with keeping the Bengals winless this week.

It’s hard to think of a Jets vs. Bengals game as a marquee matchup. However, as long as the Jets keep winning and keeping the dream of a postseason berth alive, every game from here on out must be considered one.

Jets vs Bengals lines

To no one’s surprise, the Jets started out the week as road favorites against Cincinnati at most NJ sports betting sites.

Below is a look at the early Jets vs. Bengals lines at DraftKings Sportsbook, FanDuel Sportsbook, and William Hill NJ Sportsbook. Updated as of Nov. 24.

Jets vs Bengals history

The Jets have faced the Bengals 26 times and lead the series with a 17-9 record.

Although, Cincinnati has won the last two in a row.

This includes a tight 23-22 win in New Jersey the last time the two teams met in 2016. Andy Dalton was behind the center for Cincinnati in that one, going 23 for 30 for 366 yards.

Bengals Head Coach Zac Taylor announced this week Dalton would start again this week against the Jets. Taylor benched Dalton the past three games in favor of rookie Ryan Finley.

However, Dalton also threw for 325 yards and five touchdowns in a 49-9 drubbing of the Jets back in 2013.

Kickoff is set for 1 p.m. at Paul Brown Stadium in Cincinnati.

Tune in to CBS to see if the Jets can keep their playoff hopes alive, push the Bengals to 0-12, and continue to give longshot futures bettors a chance at turning as little as $10 into $15,010.

Wilder Vs. Ortiz II: Bet On The Heavyweight Title Fight At NJ Sportsbooks

NJ sportsbooks offer a variety of ways you can bet on Wilder vs. Ortiz II as WBC heavyweight champion Deontay Wilder takes on contender Luis Ortiz Saturday.

WBC heavyweight champion Deontay Wilder will take on former WBA interim heavyweight champion Luis Ortiz in Las Vegas on Saturday and there are a huge variety of ways you can bet on the Wilder vs. Ortiz II fight at New Jersey sportsbooks.

Of course, this is a rematch from March 3, 2018, classic where Wilder defeated Ortiz by technical knockout in the 10th round in Brooklyn, making the champ a heavy favorite this time around.

The 6’7″ Wilder comes in with a record of 41–0–1 with 40 knockouts while the southpaw Ortiz, at 6’4″, is 31–1 with 26 knockouts.

The March 2018 fight saw both trade heavy punches throughout but Wilder landed the bigger blows.

Ortiz fought well but looked to run out of gas, which is one of several reasons the top NJ sports betting apps have made Wilder the big favorite to hold onto the title once again.
