This game features two coaches on the proverbial hot seat, although it seems unlikely that either is fired during the season – after is an entirely different story. Dallas has Super Bowl aspirations so if the Cowboys were to miss the playoffs or perhaps flame out early then Jason Garrett may not be back in 2020. Owner Jerry Jones is known to covet Oklahoma head coach Lincoln Riley (but then most NFL owners do). Even Urban Meyer has gone on record saying he would have to consider the Cowboys job if offered.

Not much was expected from the Giants this season so whether Pat Shurmur returns in 2020 really depends on any improvement from the team the rest of the way, specifically rookie quarterback Daniel Jones. His first NFL start was historic but Jones had been quite shaky since then until a good outing Sunday.

NFL Point Spread and Betting Analysis

Dallas is looking for its third straight season sweep of the Giants. In Week 1, the Cowboys were 35-17 home winners. Dak Prescott was brilliant in throwing for 405 yards and four touchdowns. Michael Gallup (158) and Amari Cooper (106) each had 100-yard receiving days. Eli Manning was still the Giants’ QB then and threw for 306 yards and a score. Tight end Evan Engram caught 11 passes for 116 yards and a touchdown.

The Cowboys have covered five straight meetings. The under is 5-2 in the previous seven.

Dallas comes out of its bye. Garrett was really on the hot seat – even though Jerry Jones said publicly he wasn’t – on a three-game losing streak, including an ugly upset at the terrible New York Jets, but the Cowboys snapped that in a 37-10 home rout of the Philadelphia Eagles in Week 7. The defence forced fumbles on the Eagles’ first two drives, and the offense turned them both into touchdowns. Dallas had been the NFL’s only team yet to start a possession inside opposing territory but did so four times vs. Philly.

The Cowboys almost always win when Ezekiel Elliott rushes for at least 100 yards, and he had 22 carries for 111 yards and a touchdown. Prescott threw a TD pass and rushed for one. Cooper was in doubt due to injury but had five catches for 106 yards. He has been banged up all season so the bye came at good time for Cooper. Dallas is 4-10 ATS in its past 14 Monday games.

New York Giants

New York lost its fourth in a row Sunday, 31-26 in Detroit. Daniel Jones broke out of his own slump in throwing for 322 yards and four scores with no interceptions. Darius Slayton had two catches and both were touchdowns. Top receiver Sterling Shepard missed his third game in a row due to a concussion and isn’t expected for this one. The Giants held a players-only meeting on Monday to try and right the ship. The team also made a trade Monday, landing defensive lineman Leonard Williams from the Jets. That’s the first-ever trade between the franchises. The Giants are 1-5 ATS in their past six at home.
