Presently, the over/under TD passes prop for both Prescott and Minshew is set at 1.5. However, Prescott is the heavy favorite to throw at least two touchdown passes in Week 16, thus the ladder prop pays out at plus odds.
PHI vs DAL Prop #1: Dak Prescott Over 1.5 TD Passes
Okay, let’s start with the bad. When it comes to stopping the run, Philadelphia is weaker than when stopping the pass. According to DVOA, they are second in pass defense but just twentieth in run defense. Even with Cooper Rush at quarterback, the Cowboys were only able to throw for 181 yards in their first encounter.
Since coming back from injury, Prescott has been on fire. In six of his last seven games, he’s thrown for multiple touchdowns, and his three-touchdown performance against the Jaguars was his most recent at OKBET.
Since the Eagles’ defense is particularly formidable on the outside, Dallas will likely employ a strategy that features more passes across the middle to tight ends and more heavy air involvement by the running backs. Luckily for Prescott, he has competent players like CeeDee Lamb, Tony Pollard, and Dalton Schultz at his disposal.
If we look at Dak’s previous career against Philly, he threw for 295 yards and 5 touchdowns on 77% completion against them.
PHI vs DAL Prop #2: Michael Gallup Under 36.5 Receiving Yards
We’re going to keep this easy. We’ve established that attacking the Eagles from the side is a bad idea, and yet Michael Gallup runs the vast majority of his routes on the perimeter.
Gallup hasn’t proven he can be a reliable number two wide receiver this season, and he’s had a very rocky year. He has a dismal 54.3% reception percentage and has failed to reach 35 yards in six of 11 games.

The two best corners for the Philadelphia Eagles Pro Football Focus places James Bradberry and Darius Slay at the fifth and ninth spots in coverage grade.

|Gardner Minshew (PHI)||+3000||+500|
|Quez Watkins (PHI)||+3000||+500|
Even though the Cowboys are underdogs by 5, the anytime TD market favors Tony Pollard over teammate Ezekiel Elliott. Dalton Schultz is listed at an enticingly low price a bit lower down the board.
PHI vs DAL Prop #3: Dalton Schultz Anytime TD
Since we know the best way to beat Philadelphia is in the middle, we can focus on the Cowboys’ best tight end. Schultz has scored on two of his eleven red zone targets during the previous five games.
Even though Schultz has struggled this season compared to his eight touchdown season in 2021, he has traditionally dominated against the Eagles. He has nine receptions and four touchdowns in the last two games against the Eagles.
