The Dallas Cowboys defeated the Philadelphia Eagles last night and showed their strength on both sides of the ball. The Cowboys face Brett Favre and the Minnesota Vikings next week as the NFC NFL Playoffs move into the divisional round. The early betting line has the Cowboys as only a +2.5 Underdog for NFL Picks.
Last night in shutting down McNabb and the Eagles offense, the Cowboys continued a trend of keeping opponents 21 points and under. These opponents include the following NFL Playoffs teams: New Orleans Saints, Green Bay Packers and San Diego Chargers. The Cowboys did lose 2 of those games and the 2 games were an opponent scored over 21 points â€“ against the New York Giants.
Led by Brett Favre, the Minnesota Vikings offense has scored 24+ points 13 times for a 12-1 record in those games. The Vikings went undefeated at home, including wins against 3 NFL Playoffs teams: Green Bay Packers, Baltimore Ravens and Cincinnati Bengals.
The Vikings defense has given up 24+ points 7 times this season so the Dallas Cowboys will have opportunity to score. For now, look for a total score of 45 points and take the home team.
Return later this week for the final verdict which depends on how their common opponent the Green Bay Packers fares against the Arizona Cardinals.
