Since launching in both states back in early September, FOX Bet PA has emerged as our favorite option in the PA online sportsbook market because it has excelled at creating aggressive odds boosts and imaginative promotional offers for both new and current customers. You may recall that they offered even odds on Carson Wentz to throw a touchdown pass against the Packers back in Week 4, something he had done in 26 of his previous 27 games.
FOX Bet Eagles Boost
This time around, FOX Bet is offering the Eagles at +7 with no vig over the Dallas Cowboys, providing bettors who are looking to back the Eagles with insane value. The max bet is $25.
Typically, it would cost roughly -230 to grab an alternate spread on a team at +7 when its standard market price is +2.5.
Players who sign up here can grab $20 free with no deposit required, and their first deposit matched up to $100. If the Eagles cover the inflated spread with a $25 bet, a new user would walk away with $145 in bonuses. Not a bad deal.
FiveThirtyEight’s ELO projection has the Cowboys at only -1.5 with a 55% chance to win the game, meaning that between the discrepancy in the line and the added value FOX Bet is offering, bettors are being spotted an extra 5.5 points.
Moreover, recent history between these two NFC East rivals suggests that we could be in store for yet another close game.
The Eagles are 6-3 straight up (5-4) ATS in Dallas since Jason Garrett became head coach of the Cowboys, winning by an average of 6.44 points per contest. Not only that, but Dallas has not won or covered against the Eagles at home in back-to-back years, and has not beaten the Eagles by more than six points at home in that time.
Finally, it’s also uncharacteristic of Doug Pederson teams to get roughed up in consecutive weeks.
Dating back to the start of the 2017 season, the Eagles have only lost two games by more than seven points (one was last week), and they have not lost back-to-back games by seven points or more since the second half of Carson Wentz’s rookie year.
In Pennsylvania, it seems only FOX Bet is running these sorts of value-laden offers on a consistent basis. While FanDuel Sportsbook PA and SugarHouse Sportsbook occasionally offer up unique boosts, FOX does it every week with few strings or play-through requirements. It remains our choice for the state’s best betting app, right now.
If you like the Eagles to at least keep it close, then be sure to take advantage of this strong offer from FOX Bet.
