Cowboys Super Bowl Odds Soar Following Win Over Eagles

Following their decisive 38-27 win over the Eagles in Philadelphia last weekend, which vaulted them into sole possession of first place in the NFC East, the 10-4 Dallas Cowboys’ Super Bowl odds have taken off, shortening to 14/1 in NFL futures betting.
The Cowboys had fallen to the middle of the pack in online Super Bowl betting, dropping to 28/1 after suffering a 33-10 loss to the Eagles at home on Thanksgiving Day and temporarily dropping out of the NFC playoff picture.
But with a pair of back-to-back SU and ATS wins, including their victory over Philly while pegged as three-point underdogs, the Cowboys enter Week 16 trailing only the four Super Bowl betting favorites, led by the New England Patriots, who have seen their Super Bowl odds shorten to 3/1.
Conversely, the 9-5 Eagles have seen their Super Bowl odds tumble, from 16/1 following their Turkey Day win over Dallas to 33/1 entering their Week 16 matchup with the Washington Redskins.
However, all is not lost for Philly who would get the playoff nod in the event they end the regular season tied with the Cowboys. A win over Washington would certainly give a nudge to their betting odds, especially if combined with a Dallas loss, with the Eagles ending their regular season with a road matchup against the 5-9 New York Giants.
Conversely, the Cowboys must face the AFC South champion Indianapolis Colts on Sunday afternoon before travelling to Washington for their regular season finale.
The 10-4 Colts clinched their division last weekend with their fourth straight SU win, a 17-10 victory over the Houston Texans, and travel to Dallas as three-point road underdogs in a game they must win to keep their slim hopes alive of enjoying a bye on Wild Card Weekend.
After trailing the Green Bay Packers for most of the season, the 11-3 Patriots have emerged as the leader in Super Bowl 2015 betting. Following their shaky 2-2 start, the Pats have roared to life with nine SU wins in their last 10 games, going 8-2 ATS.
The Packers have fallen back to 5/1 after peaking with odds of 7/2 following their 26-21 win over the Patriots on Thanksgiving weekend. The Pack’s 21-13 loss to Buffalo ousted them from top spot in the NFC North, now held by the 10-4 Detroit Lions, with the division likely to be decided in a showdown with the Lions at Lambeau Field in Week 17.
The Packers are joined at 5/1 by the 11-3 Denver Broncos, who have consistently been one of the top Super Bowl picks since the end of last season.
However, both the Pack and Broncos find themselves looking up at the Seattle Seahawks in the Super Bowl odds, who have vaulted from 13/2 at the end of November to a solid 13/4 this week.
The Seahawks have been dominant in four straight wins, SU and ATS, while holding opposing offenses to just three total touchdowns in their last four outings.
