  • The over/under for Sunday night's game between the Dallas Cowboys and Philadelphia Eagles closed at 45.
  • The majority of bets and money were on the over, which was looking dead in the water for the majority of the game.
  • But then both teams went on a scoring barrage to pull off a miracle cover for over bettors.

Halfway through the third quarter of Sunday night’s Cowboys-Eagles game, everyone who bet the under had to feel pretty good.

The first 14 drives of the game had resulted in the following:

  • Punts: 5
  • Turnovers: 1
  • Turnover on Downs: 1
  • End of Half: 1
  • Missed field goals: 1
  • Made field goals: 4
  • Touchdowns: 1

That’s 19 points in the game’s first 43 minutes. Pretty solid if you had the Under 45.

And then this happened …

  • Touchdown
  • Touchdown
  • Touchdown
  • Touchdown

Twenty-eight points in essentially a quarter’s worth of time.

The final score, 27-20, cleared the closing total by a mere two points.

The result will be a hit for the books. Unsurprisingly, Sunday night’s game was far and away the most-bet contest of the Week 10 slate, and according to our public betting data, the over got 61% of the betting tickets and 69% of the money.
