Free NFL Proline Picks For Week #16 (Dec 24, 2011)
Philadelphia Eagles (+2) vs. Dallas Cowboys (-2); Total 50.5
Can the Philadelphia Eagles pull off a miracle and make the playoffs? It is still possible and with just 2 games left it is not that far fetched. For the Eagles to make the playoffs they need to beat the Cowboys this week and the Redskins next week. They will also need some help. They need the Jets to beat the Giants this week and for the Giants to beat the Cowboys next week. Sure it won’t be easy but stranger things have definitely happened. Will the Philadelphia Eagles make the playoffs? I like the Eagles to hold up their end of the bargain and win there final two games. Predicting what the Giants will do is anybody’s guess. The Eagles have to be the hottest team in the NFL right now. The Eagles have won back to back games putting up 71 points. Last week Philadelphia jumped out to a 28-0 lead over the Jets before they knew what hit them. A big part of Philly’s success has been the defence and their pass rush. All teams go through ups and downs and picking up on these trends is key when betting on the NFL. If you bet on the Eagles for the 1st half of the season you got killed as they went just 2-6 against the spread. But for the past few weeks the Eagles are a different team and not one you want to go against.

Eagles vs. Cowboys Week #16 Prediction:
Yes the Cowboys are a good team and are coming off a 31-15 win over a fading Bucs team. However, the Cowboys just seem to find a way to lose games they have no business losing. When it comes to cruch time I want no part of Tony Romo or this Dallas squad. Bottom line: The Eagles are playing the best football of any team right now (Chargers are hot too) and I like them to keep it going this week. Currently the Cowboys are a -2 favorite at 5 Dimes Sportsbook. I’ll take the Eagles and the +2 points (because I can) in this game.
Taking The EAGLES +2 points @ 1.91
