Minty Bets, Jared Quay and Pamela Maldonado break down their betting picks for the Monday Night Football matchup between the Philadelphia Eagles and the Dallas Cowboys.

Video Transcript

MINTY BETS: It's time for some Monday Night Football as the Philadelphia Eagles take on the Dallas Cowboys. The Cowboys are four point home favorites and the total is 51 and 1/2. I'm Minty Bets here with Pam and Jared and we're here to give you our best bets for Monday. Let's start with you Jared, who are you betting on?

JARED QUAY: Oh man, I hate betting the Cowboys but I have to, all right? As I simply said in one of my videos, I think Dak Prescott is playing at an MVP level. He has all the weapons and targets, but it's just too hard not to go with that offense right now. They're scoring at will and I don't think the Eagles can keep up with Jalen Hurts at the helm, so I like the Cowboys to win and cover.

MINTY BETS: Oh, OK. Pam, what's your bet?

PAMELA MALDONADO: I also am on the Cowboys and that scares me, because I don't like to bet on or against the Cowboys. But Philadelphia, they haven't faced a strong passing team. Dallas, they haven't faced a strong rushing team and the Dallas defense is maybe improving.

They have four interceptions, two forced fumbles, zero rushing scores allowed and Philadelphia has yet to have a turnover or force a turnover. So something has to give in this game. I'm going to look to early down passes, which shows that is more successful for teams. Dallas is throwing at 69% on first down passing plays.

Philadelphia only has 52%. And if you have to look at third down efficiency, Dallas is also better in that category, 56% on third downs. Philadelphia is only 54. I like Dallas, I like Dak Prescott in this home game.

MINTY BETS: Oh, OK. I like both of your guys' picks, but I promised myself I wouldn't bet on the Cowboys. I think I'm going to look to this total instead. Now, I haven't taken an under all season yet and I think today is the day. I really liked how the Cowboys look.

I mean, they look really good, but I think I like how their defenses look as well, both the Eagles and the Cowboys. Now, the Eagles are allowing the fourth fewest passing yards so far this season and the Cowboys were able to hold off the Chargers last week, as we saw. This total is 6 and 3 to the under their last nine meetings, so give me the under.

JARED QUAY: Under with the offense like the Cowboys, Minty? You risky.
