With a total resting just under 40 points, online sportsbooks around the United States don’t project the New York Giants and Dallas Cowboys Week 3 Monday Night Football clash to be all that high-scoring.
But hey—that doesn’t mean there aren’t some player prop bets to take a shot on.
Here, we have four, including three from the Cowboys and two from the same player.
Let’s make some money.
An unsuspecting Giants wide receiver, Sills V, played the most passing down snaps and ran the most routes on the team in Week 2 against the Carolina Panthers.
This week, he draws Cowboys cornerback Anthony Brown who’s been lackluster on defense, surrendering 12 catches on 17 targets for 160 yards and a touchdown.
Sills V had just four targets and an average depth of target of just over seven yards, but that’s what assists us in getting this +650 line.
This is a bit of a shot in the dark, but the usage and matchup are there for the former Buffalo Bills receiver.

Throwing for a single score last week against the Cincinnati Bengals, the Cowboys and quarterback Cooper Rush get a much better matchup this week.
According to Pro Football Focus, the New York Giants rank as the 11th worst coverage unit in the league.
He may be without tight end Dalton Schultz this week, but Rush does get wide receiver Michael Gallup back into the lineup.
Backup tight end Jake Ferguson may not be the most incredible receiving threat in the world. Still, he has a decent matchup against Giants safety Julian Love, who’s been targeted four times this season, but has given all of them up for catches.
We should also mention running back Tony Pollard. On 13 touches last week, Pollard had 98 total yards and a score. His explosiveness could pay huge dividends here. He’s a candidate to take a swing pass from Rush and house it at any moment.
Rush has the weapons and the matchup to put some points on the board, and getting “+” money on these touchdowns is more than worth it.

The line on Rush is just 210.5, but a week ago, he threw for over 230. The total here doesn’t demonstrate a lot of confidence in either offense. Still, as we’ve discussed, there’s actually a good chance of this turning into a bit of a mini-shootout.
We know all of Rush’s weapons, and this is important as the Cowboys running game really isn’t all that strong at the moment. Running back Ezekiel Elliott is averaging just over four yards a carry on 25 carries. Pollard, who had a good game in Week 2, has an average yards per carry tally under 3.5 due to a poor Week 1.
There are just too many scenarios where Rush will be valuable passing the ball. He’s in for a solid day.
Speaking of Pollard, let’s check him out from a rushing perspective.
Pollard has just 15 carries for 51 yards and a score this season. The yard per carry number isn’t great, but Week 1 was a tough outing against the Tampa Bay Buccaneers.
Per PFF, the Giants rank 25th in run defense, and Pollard is a player that has excellent explosiveness. He has just a single run of 10+ yards this year (17-yard rush in Week 2), but he had 17 rushes of 10+ yards on 130 attempts in 2021.
The line of 12.5 may seem long, but the Giants aren’t a threatening unit in run defense. At -105, these are great odds.
