The Giants enter this game as the favorite. New York has played well this season, and they are the team to beat in this game. However, the Cowboys are a team more than capable of upsetting the odds.
These two teams tend to produce exciting results when going head-to-head. But the Giants are finally in a position to put the Cowboys in their place this season. But the odds don’t favor New York by much, as they are listed as just a 1-point favorite.
Let’s take a closer look at this game.
Betting on Dallas Cowboys
The Cowboys earned their first win last week against the Bengals in a 20-17 affair.
QB Cooper Rush got the start amid Dak Prescott’s injury absence. Rush wasn’t spectacular, but he performed well, considering the situation. He finished the game going 19-31 through the air with a touchdown and 235 passing yards.
Ezekiel Elliott and Tony Pollard combined for 96 rushing yards to pace the running game. Elliott and Pollard will be extremely important, giving the Cowboys questions in the passing attack. Fortunately, Elliott is one of the better RBs in the NFL, while Pollard is an excellent backup option.
The Dallas defense did a nice job of limiting Joe Burrow and the Bengals’ offense as well. They contained him while limiting Cincinnati to only 17 points.
There is no question it has been a struggle offensively for the Cowboys this year. They rank 31st in points per game, 26th in total yards per game, 21st in passing yards per game, and 23rd in rushing yards per contest.
Defensively, they are ninth in points against per game, sixth in yards surrendered per game, sixth in passing yards surrendered per game, 19th in rushing yards given up per game, fourth in sacks, and 13th in interceptions.
Dallas’ defense leaves room for optimism. If the offense can score just enough points per game until Prescott returns, the Cowboys’ defense will take care of business and handle the rest.
Betting on New York Giants
The Giants come into this game as the very narrow favorites. The Giants have escaped with competitive victories in each of their first two games.
They defeated the Carolina Panthers 19-16 last week.
Daniel Jones went 22-34 through the air and tallied a touchdown. Saquon Barkley added 72 rushing yards out of the backfield for the Giants.
Their offense was not all that impressive in the game. There wasn’t a player that posted a jaw-dropping performance by any means. With that being said, the offense is exciting, with Barkley leading the charge.
The Giants’ improved defense stepped up and led the team to their Week 2 victory. The Panthers’ offense isn’t anything to write home about, but New York’s effort was notable nonetheless.
Christian McCaffrey was able to record over 100 rushing yards. However, New York kept him out of the end zone while limiting the Panthers to only 16 points.
The Giants’ defense ranks ninth in points per game, 12th in total yards surrendered per game, 10th in passing yards surrendered per contest, 18th in rushing yards per game, 23rd in sacks, and 25th in interceptions.
Offensively, the Giants rank 15th in points per game, 19th in total yards per game, 30th in passing yards per game, and fifth in rushing yards per game.
To summarize, New York’s defense has been enough, their passing game has been miserable, and their rushing attack has been great.
Dallas Cowboys at New York Giants Picks and Predictions
Which team should you place your money on?
The Cowboys are a strong underdog pick, given the narrow spread. But trusting Cooper Rush is risky… but so is trusting Daniel Jones.
In the end, I like the Giants’ momentum right now. The fans are excited to see what this team can accomplish after starting off 2-0. Go ahead and take the Giants.
