NFL schedule 2013: Eagles vs. Cowboys predictions and Week 17 free NFL picks SNF

See also

The final Week 17 game on the NFL schedule 2013 features an Eagles vs. Cowboys SNF matchup that will decide the NFC East crown. According to a Dec. 28, 2013 ESPN report, free NFL picks and predictions for this pivotal intradivisional showdown are now available.

According to NFL oddsmakers and ATS lines, the (9-6) Philadelphia Eagles are favored to win by a touchdown and a point-after over the (8-7) Dallas Cowboys this evening. The OVER/UNDER is set at a combined total of 53 points, and alternate (straight-up) betting lines go as follows: Eagles [-270] vs. Cowboys [+225].

Opening kickoff is scheduled for 8:30 p.m. EST (7:30 p.m. CST/6:30 p.m. MST/5:30 p.m. PST) from AT&T Stadium in Arlington, Texas, and it will be broadcast live nationwide on NBC.

The last time these rivals met was on Oct. 20 when Dallas prevailed by a score of 17-3 at Lincoln Financial Field. The Boys' defense dominated the proceedings, limiting the birds to a fourth-quarter field goal and a stingy 278 yards of total offense with an injured Nick Foles sidelined.

Fast-forward to Week 17, with Tony Romo out for the year with a back injury, and with Chip Kelly's offensive finally hitting its stride, it's extremely hard to imagine that a similar outcome will play itself out this evening.

Coincidentally, a large portion of the population agrees, as consensus analyses show 57 percent (1,721 wagers) of bettors favor the Eagles to cover at -7 ATS. Meanwhile, 43 percent (1,303) of the public disagrees by taking Dallas with a +7-point ATS cushion.

More defined results can be found for tonight's projected OVER/UNDER point-total. Hours before kickoff, 67 percent of the betting activity favors Philly and Dallas to eclipse the 53-point mark, compared to just 33 who believe otherwise.

With quarterback Kyle Orton under center and considering how poorly the Cowboys 'D' has performed as of late, in one's opinion, anything short of a blowout in Philadelphia's favor would be a shocking conclusion to this Sunday Night game.
