Even in years in which the NFC East isn’t good, the Cowboys vs Giants rivalry generates a lot of interest. This year, the Cowboys look poised for a deep playoff run and this makes this clash even more appealing. The best part is that there are a lot of betting opportunities and we will explore them below.
Our crew’s Cowboys vs Giants Prediction on the spread
We don’t love the spread as it currently stands at 7.0. The Dallas Cowboys odds to win by at least 7 are -110. There are plenty of arguments to bet the -7.0 @ -110 here, though. The Giants just won their first game of the season and are jubilant. Often times, players get carried away celebrating and not really preparing for their next opponent.
On top of that, when you finally pull one off, you tend to relax a little bit and this goes for the coaching staff too. To make matters worse for the Giants, they are near the bottom in most categories while Dallas is near the top.
Until the line goes down to -6.5 or even -6.0, we aren’t betting the spread. What we recommend here is teasing down Dallas to -1.0 or -0.5 and pairing that game with a teaser on Minnesota -1.5.
The best bet that we have on the DAL vs NYG fixture
The New York Giants score 20.8 points per game this season and this number got bumped thanks to their overtime 27-21 victory over the Saints last week. Prior to that, they scored 13, 29, and 14 in their first three games giving them an average of 18.3 points per game.
We are betting the Team Total for the Giants to go under 21.5 @ -120. The team is 31st in yards per point (18.5), 14th in yards per game (384.0), 21st in points per game (20.8) and 20th in 1st downs per game (20.5). Dallas is top 5 in all these categories.
The odds for the New Your Giants to score under 21.5 are good for us and that’s the best bet.
Players to watch in the game
Daniel Jones: The Giants QB had the game of his life last week. He threw for 402 yards, 2 TDs, and averaged 10.1 yards per pass. He is due for regression, and we want to see if that’ll happen.
Trevon Diggs: Diggs is having a career year at cornerback. He had 3 interceptions in 2020 and has 5 only in the first 4 games this season. He is also on track to triple his passes defensed stat.
