The Philadelphia Eagles (3-3) will travel to Dallas to take on the Cowboys (3-3) in a Week 7 NFC East showdown on "Sunday Night Football." Dallas is currently listed as a slight 2.5-point favorite, according to FanDuel Sportsbook.

If you're looking to place a few alternative wagers on Sunday night's game, here are four of the best prop bets you can put your money on.

1. Ezekiel Elliott to Score 2+ Touchdowns (+340)

Ezekiel Elliott has seen 28 rushing attempts and three targets inside the 20 so far this year, accounting for 52.5 percent of Dallas' red zone opportunities. Basically, it's no secret at this point that if the Cowboys are in the red zone, they're going to lean on Ezekiel Elliott more often than not. It's also worth noting that the last time the Cowboys played the Eagles (Week 10 of the 2018 season), Elliott scored exactly two touchdowns.

2. Dallas Cowboys Total Points: Over 26.5 (-118)

Dallas has had a solid home-field advantage against Philly over the last four years and have really poured on the points in those games. Since the 2015, the Cowboys are a respectable 2-2 against the Eagles when playing in AT&T Stadium and have scored 27 points or more in three of those four contests.

3. Zach Ertz Total Receptions: Over 5.5 (-130)

Zach Ertz is one of the best pass-catching tight ends in the game today, and he has functioned as Carson Wentz's security blanket this season. So far, the two-time Pro Bowler leads the Eagles with a whopping 54 targets and has had at least five receptions in four of the six games he's played in. Additionally, the Cowboys have struggled to defend tight ends this season, allowing 35 receptions (No. 28 in the NFL) and 351 yards receiving (No. 27 in the NFL) to players at the position.

4. Total Points Odd/Even: Even (+106)

Odd/even prop bets are the closest thing to a coin-flip bet you can make. However, recent history in the Eagles-Cowboys rivalry may indicate putting money on an even final point total could be a bet worth making. Seven of the last eight contests played between Dallas and Philly have ended with an even-numbered combined points total. The lone exception in that span occurred last season, which was a 27-20 Cowboys win in Week 10.
