Best Prop Bets for Cowboys-Eagles Sunday Night Football Game

Don't be deterred by the heavily favored Philadelphia Eagles in tonight's Sunday Night Football battle with the Dallas Cowboys at Lincoln Financial Field, because there are more than enough intriguing prop bets between both teams' players and successes to keep an eye out for tonight. Here are the five best prop bets for the Cowboys-Eagles game this Sunday night. 

5. Carson Wentz to Have 300+ Passing Yards and the Eagles to Win

Odds: (+158)

This is far from the best value bet of the Sunday night slate of props, but Wentz has thrown for at least 275 yards in each of his previous five starts (five of his total six games since returning from injury), and he's thrown for 300 or more yards in three of those five. 

4. Dallas Cowboys to Win by 1-13 Points

Odds: (+300)

Given how stacked the odds via FanDuel Sportsbook are against the Cowboys catching even a whiff of victory tonight in Philadelphia, taking the possibility of an upset with a Dallas margin of victory anywhere between 1-13 points seems like good value at a 3/1 payout. 

3. First Scoring Play of the Second Half

Odds: Cowboys Touchdown (+310)

Odds: Cowboys Field Goal (+350)

Odds: Eagles Touchdown (+145)

Odds: Eagles Field Goal (+300)

Even though we have a bevy of solid value looks between both teams, taking the heavily-favored Eagles and Jake Elliott to kick one through the uprights for the first score of the second half at a 3/1 payout is an interesting look. 

2. Ezekiel Elliott to Have 50+ Receiving Yards and the Cowboys to Win

Odds: (+620)

Prior to last week's Monday night loss to the Tennessee Titans, Elliott hauling in at least 50 receiving yards seems to go hand in hand with the Cowboys securing a win. Elliott has already proven he has the ability to reach this mark, but the rest of the team will have to prove they can help carry the whole squad to a victory. 

1. Amari Cooper to Score First Touchdown

Odds: (+1300)

Considering Cooper has the second best odds of any Cowboy to score the first touchdown of the game behind Elliott's +650, a 13/1 value on Cooper repeating exactly what he did in last week's Monday night game against the Tennessee Titans in punching in the first score seems like a great look. Not to mention, the Cowboys lost that game and still saw Cooper haul in the first score.
