Eagles and Cowboys favoured in NFL Week 16 betting at Coral

| 20.12.2014

Philadelphia Eagles will be gunning for a SU win, and return to the NFC playoff race when they take on the Washington Redskins on Saturday night as 7.5-point road favourites in NFL betting at Coral.

The 9-5 Eagles enter Week 16 outside the playoff picture, following their 38-27 loss to the Dallas Cowboys last weekend, which toppled them from top spot in the NFC East.

That defeat was Philly’s third in their last five, both SU and ATS. However, the Eagles have enjoyed some success on the road this season, posting SU wins in Indianapolis, Houston, Dallas to go 3-3 SU and 4-2 ATS.

SU losers in their last six, 1-5 ATS, the 3-11 Redskins are playing out the string on their lost season, which will see them finish dead last in the NFC East for the sixth time in seven years.
The Skins have surrendered 28.3 points per game during their current losing skid, and are a dismal 1-4 SU and ATS in their last five home dates against the Eagles.

The 10-4 Cowboys look to stay ahead of the Eagles in the fight for the NFC East division title when they welcome the 10-4 Indianapolis Colts as three-point favourites in American Football betting at Coral.

However, the Cowboys have struggled at home, SU and ATS losers in their last three, and a worrisome 2-5 ATS overall at home this season.

After claiming their ninth AFC South title in the last 12 years with a 17-10 win over the Houston Texans last weekend, the Colts will be jockeying for top spot in the conference and a bye on Wild Card Weekend.

Indy rides a four-game winning streak into Sunday afternoon’s clash with the Cowboys at AT&T Stadium, and is a strong 4-1 SU, 3-2 ATS, in their last five road games.

The 11-3 Arizona Cardinals can clinch first place in the NFC West on Sunday night when they take on the surging Seattle Seahawks as 7.5-point underdogs in NFL online betting at Coral.

Plagued by injuries that have sidelined starting QB Carson Palmer and backup QB Drew Stanton, the Cards have been getting it done with strong defense, winning their last two SU, while holding opponents to just 10 points per game.

Arizona has also defied the betting odds this campaign, going 6-2 SU in eight matches this season when pegged as an underdog. But with the post-season fast approaching, the Cards must find an answer to their struggles on offense after averaging just 12.8 points per game in their last five outings.

The 10-4 Seahawks have rebounded after a slow start, and currently ride a four-match SU and ATS win streak, holding opponents to under seven points in each of their last four.

In other Week 16 NFL betting action at Coral, the 10-4 Green Bay Packers take on the 2-10 Tampa Bay Buccaneers as 10.5-point favourites, while the 10-4 Detroit Lions are favoured by eight over the 5-9 Chicago Bears.
