It’s the best of the NFC East versus the worst as the first place Dallas Cowboys head to New York to take on the last place Giants.  The Cowboys extended their division lead with a 27-20 win in Washington last week, while the Giants fell 37-21 to the Chargers for their second consecutive loss.

Dallas has climbed to a heavy 11.5-point road favourite to win on the NFL odds, with a total of 45.0.

NFL Point Spread and Betting Analysis

The Cowboys have dominated this head-to-head series.  Dallas is 8-1 straight up, including a 44-20 win earlier this season, and 7-2 against the spread in their last nine games against New York.  That has about 62 per cent of Sports Interaction bettors taking America’s Team in this one, while 55 per cent of action is taking the Over.

Dallas has been good on the road this season, winning five of seven contests.  They’ve been a great cover option all year, going 10-3 against the spread overall and 6-1 ATS on the road.  The total has gone Under in six of the Cowboys’ last seven games.

It’s another rough year in New York as they sit at just 4-9 on the season.  They’re 6-7 ATS overall and 3-3 ATS at home.  The total has gone Under in six of the Giants’ last seven games.

Dallas Cowboys

After head coach Mike McCarthy made the baffling decision to guarantee a win in the lead-up to Dallas’ game in Washington last week, the Cowboys narrowly avoided an embarrassing meltdown.  Dallas was up 24-0 at one point, before Dak Prescott threw a pick-six immediately following a Washington touchdown, adding 12 points on the board in minutes.  Prescott finished the game with 211 passing yards, a touchdown and two interceptions.  Amari Cooper hauled in the lone receiving touchdown.  Ezekiel Elliott ran the ball 12 times for 45 yards as he continues to deal with a lingering knee injury.  Elliott reached 1,000 scrimmage yards on the season for the sixth straight year.

The Cowboys’ defence came up big, forcing four turnovers and picking up five sacks.  Micah Parsons had two sacks, becoming just the third rookie in NFL history to record a sack in six consecutive games.

New York Giants

With Daniel Jones already out because of a neck injury, there were fears quarterback Mike Glennon might not clear concussion protocol in time for last week’s game, but he eventually did, finishing with 191 passing yards, two touchdowns and an interception.  Glennon also rushed for a seven-yard touchdown.  Saquon Barkley and Elijhaa Penny had the receiving touchdowns.  Barkley also added 64 rushing yards on 16 carries.  It was the first game the Giants scored more than 21 points in since Nov. 7.

Glennon will get the start again on Sunday, although he hasn’t been any better than Jones at jumpstarting this offence.  New York has lost and failed to cover in three of their last four games, averaging just 13.3 points per game in that span.
