New York Giants vs. Dallas Cowboys Betting Predictions

The Dallas Cowboys are reeling after the defense yet again failed to make stops early in the game and forced the offense to mount a nearly impossible comeback. The New York Giants have played some great defense at times this year, but the offense has been a mess, especially without Saquon Barkley. This will be a strong test for the Giants secondary, and it might be a step too far for the unit against Dak Prescott and the Cowboys.

New York Giants vs. Dallas Cowboys Betting Odds

The Giants are the worst offense in the NFL this year having scored just 47 points and gained a little more than 1,100 yards through four games. Daniel Jones has already thrown five interceptions this year and the running game has been nearly non-existent because of how often New York is trailing and needs to throw the ball. It’s remarkable that the defense has performed as well as it has, allowing the fifth-fewest yards in the league and rank 10th in rushing yards allowed. It’s the defense that kept the Giants competitive in losses to the Bears and the Rams, but now it will face the type of aerial assault it has yet to see this year.

Dallas earns a much-needed defensive reprieve this week against the Giants, but the numbers have been ghastly through four weeks. The Cowboys have allowed the most points in the NFL, they rank 30th in yards allowed and rank second-to-last in rushing yards and rushing attempts against this year. It’s quite embarrassing to say the least, but the Giants likely won’t be able to exploit those shortcomings this weekend. On the other hand, the Cowboys’ offense has been basically unstoppable in the second half as they have chased down deficits, which has included monster numbers. Dak Prescott leads the league in passing yards and passing attempts, and he’s been able to attack down the field with Amari Cooper and CeeDee Lamb.

The most intriguing betting line from the New Jersey online sports betting sites is the 21 points on the over/under for the Giants point total. It’s a wager about whether the league’s worst offense or league’s worst defense is truly the worst, and I tend to think New York’s offense is worse. What has allowed Dallas to pull off these comebacks in the last three weeks has been the defense’s ability to at least earn some stops. The Giants haven’t proven any ability to score at all, so I’ll take the under 21 points at -106 odds as the first of my NFL betting predictions. I’ll also bet on the under 46.5 total points for +240 odds because I think the Cowboys will be challenged early by the Giants defense before they pull away as New York struggles to score.

Cowboys to win

The NFL betting sites in New Jersey have installed Dallas as a 9.5-point favorite, which is more an indictment on the Cowboys’ porous defense than a compliment for the Giants’ defense. I am actually tempted to get very risky in the alternate spreads in search of better value, threatening to even break into the three-score range. That’s how little faith I have in New York’s ability to move the ball on offense and I find it hard to imagine Dallas can’t score three touchdowns against a defense that will assuredly get tired as the game progresses. I’ll be bold and pick Dallas laying 17.5 points at +210 odds to beat the Giants on Sunday.
