Giants vs Cowboys Predictions

POINT SPREAD: New York Giants 9.5 (-110) at Unibet

The meat inside the NFL’s Turkey Day 3-game sandwich is a juicy Week 12 NFC East battle between the New York Giants and the Dallas Cowboys, the 7-3 Giants coming off a disappointing Week 11 loss to the Detroit Lions while the Cowboys are still no doubt flying high from wiping the football floor with the Minnesota Vikings, a divisional matchup with playoff implications.

Get this – New York has covered the spread in five of their last six games as underdogs, and with the oddsmakers handing them an extra nine and a half points, we like them to cover in this game, though they are playing a Cowboys team that ranks better than them on both sides of the ball and who are 9-2 against the spread in their last 11 matchups against these tricky Giants.

For the Dallas Cowboys, expect dual threat RB Tony Pollard and a now healthy Zeke Elliot to be a huge factor in OC Kellen Moore’s game plan against these Giants who are ranked 25th against the run after allowing opponents to gain 136 yards on the ground per game, whereas for the New York, watch for their 4th ranked rushing attack led by tough to tackle RB Saquon Barkley.

At this point during your Thanksgiving holiday, you will hopefully have already eaten your meal and your slices of pie, so you might be ready for a wake-me-up bet like this points total wager featuring two talented offenses who can put points on the board with their rushing attacks as well as their passing game, Dallas led by QB Dak Prescott and the Giants led by Daniel Jones.

When you consider the fact that six of the Dallas Cowboys' last seven games at AT&T Stadium have gone under the total points line, this points total bet seems clear until you do a bit more research on the offenses, with the Cowboys averaging 25.1 points per game and the Giants putting 20.5 points on the board each time, that total of 45.1 is just above what this bet allows.

The Dallas Cowboys’ defense has been stingy this season thanks to stars like LB Micah Parsons and DE Demarcus Lawrence and CB Trevon Diggs, this group allows opponents to score a league-best 16.7 points per game, while New York’s defense featuring NT Dexter Lawrence and DT Leonard Williams allows 20.4 points per game, that total of 37.1 well under.

MONEY LINE: Dallas Cowboys (-420) at FanDuel

Judging by the way the Dallas Cowboys played last week when they beat the Vikings 40-3, all three sides of the ball are fine-tuned and it is no wonder they have won 13 of their last 14 home games against NFC East opponents, something that could get fans to invest $420 on this money line bet and if they continue that trend and win outright the payout is $100 plus that original investment.

The Giants have been playing out of their mind this season now with a 7-3 record and two games out of the first place in the NFC East, but they have also lost two of their last three games, so they are either due for a win or else at the start of a downward spiral, either way, true believers can make a $100 money line bet here and win $330 plus their wager if the Giants come out on top.

Weather will not be a factor inside the covered AT&T Stadium but what could affect this game are injuries, with the Giants coming to town with ten players questionable to play including two members of the offensive line – C Jon Feliciano (neck) and RT Evan Neal (knee - MCL) – while for the Cowboys there are nine players who are coach’s decisions including LB Micah Parsons (knee).
