Quarterback Cooper Rush and the Dallas Cowboys (4-1 straight up, 4-1 against the the spread) have been among the surprise teams of the NFL this season. But they now take on the beast that is the Philadelphia Eagles (5-0 SU, 3-2 ATS) in Week 6 on Sunday Night Football.
We present Cowboys vs. Eagles player props and anytime touchdown scorer bets for this NFC East clash in primetime.
Dallas Cowboys vs. Philadelphia Eagles Odds
Jalen Hurts and the soaring Eagles – priced between -260 and -290 on the moneyline as of Friday morning – are favored by just under a touchdown at home against Micah Parsons and the Cowboys, who bettors can ride with at a high price of +235 at FanDuel.
In a game between two stout defenses, it’s understandable why the Over/Under point total is set at 42, one of the lowest among Week 6 contests. Oddsmakers have taken that into account when creating prop lines.
Hurts is 0-2 in two career games against America’s Team. However, this Eagles squad, on paper at least, figures to be better than Dallas, so this may be Hurts’ best shot to finally conquer his divisional foe.

Player Props, TD Scorer Bets for SNF Week 6
Jalen Hurts Under 1.5 Passing Touchdowns (-150, DraftKings)
Hurts wreaks havoc on defenses both as a runner and a passer, as indicated by his 11 total touchdowns through just four contests. But he’s been shy in the passing touchdown department to the tune of just four on the season, and three of them came in one game.
Dallas’ passing defense is no joke, as it hasn’t allowed a single opposing quarterback to throw for more than one touchdown in a game. Some notable quarterbacks to fall victim include Tom Brady, Joe Burrow, and Matthew Stafford. Backing the Under at a fair price of -150 at DraftKings is the play here.
Cooper Rush Over 219.5 Passing Yards (-109, Caesars)
Rush has gotten away with being a low-volume passing threat, averaging just 193.8 yards passing in his four 2022 starts. However, he does have two games with at least 223 yards through the air and another with 215.
The Eagles present the toughest challenge that Rush and Dallas will have faced this season, but that might actually be a blessing in disguise here. Philly will likely put up a decent amount of points, which would force the Cowboys to find other (perhaps uncomfortable) ways of scoring, including with the pass.
Rush might throw the ball inefficiently and toss an interception or two, but at least the passing volume will be high enough to hit the 219.5 Over at Caesars.

CeeDee Lamb Over 61.5 Receiving Yards (-110, DraftKings), Anytime TD Scorer (+210, PointsBet)
We like Lamb to exceed his receiving yardage Over/Under total for the same reason we like Rush to exceed his passing total. Dallas hasn’t fallen deeply behind in any game with Rush as the starter this season, which meant that the offense hasn’t had to go pass-heavy late in games.
If the Cowboys find themselves in a double-digit deficit against the high-flying Eagles, then they’ll have to take chances through the air in order to play catch-up, which bodes well for Lamb’s yardage total.
Dallas’ top receiver leads the team in receiving yards (341) and receiving touchdowns (two) this season. He’s also had three games with at least 75 yards receiving, along with two games with a touchdown grab.
Tight end Dalton Schultz is questionable for this game with a knee injury. If he’s ultimately ruled out, then that should slightly boost Lamb’s involvement in the offense – and hopefully boost his receiving output as well.
