The Dallas Cowboys will travel to New York to face the Giants on Sunday Night Football. Dallas has an NFC Championship on their mind, while the Giants will try to stay afloat in the division. The Cowboys have a talented team, but the group hasn’t shown the ability to get over the hump in the playoffs. 

New York made the playoffs last season in their first year under Brian Daboll. The team will be pesky, but they play in one of the toughest divisions in the NFL. Let’s take a look at some of the best props for the Sunday night matchup!

Dak Prescott Over 236.5 Passing Yards (-110) on DraftKings Sportsbook

Dak Prescott makes a lot of mistakes with the football. He led the league in interceptions last season, and only played in 12 games because of an injury. Prescott has big play ability, and has been successful in his NFL career, but in Dallas, divisional round appearances aren’t good enough. 

The team brought in Trey Lance from the 49ers for a fourth round pick. Prescott is still the starter and there is no thought of having Lance be the quarterback of the future, but this move caused some tension in the facility. 

This motivation, combined with the solid matchup against the Giants passing defense, is making us lean over on Prescott. His passing yards total is listed at 236.5 and we’re leaning over.

New York is a very gritty football team, but they weren’t strong against the pass last season. They made plays in crunch time which led to victories, however, they were still eaten up through the air against quality passing attacks.

The Giants ranked 18th in the Cold, Hard Football Facts Defensive Passer Rating Index. This is an efficiency index that measures how well a team defends the pass, and the Giants were below league average.

They only allowed 214 passing yards per game, but the secondary still had flaws that Prescott can expose. Prescott is 10-2 in 12 career starts against the Giants, averaging 262.3 yards per game. He went over this total once in his only start against New York last year. 

Saquon Barkley Over 20.5 Receiving Yards (-110) on DraftKings Sportsbook

Saquon Barkley must have a massive game to give the Giants a chance to pull off a home upset against the Cowboys. Barkley can run the ball, but he is also exceptional in catching the ball out of the backfield. 

His receiving number is very low on Sunday Night Football. The line is set at 20.5 for -110 and Barkley can hit this total with one reception because he is so explosive. The running back will receive his fair share of carries, but Dallas is stout against the run. They ranked first in the Cold, Hard Football Facts Defensive Rusher Rating metric and they’re also tenth in Defensive Passer Rating.

This means Daniel Jones may have issues finding his limited receiver talent down the field. Dallas’ strength in the secondary makes Barkleya a viable pass-catching option out of the backfield. 

He has gone over this total five times in eight career games against Dallas. His first contest against Dallas resulted in 45 receiving yards on four catches. His 11.3 yards per reception number shows how dangerous he can be out of the backfield.

CeeDee Lamb Over 74.5 Receiving Yards (-110) on DraftKings Sportsbook

We’re expecting Prescott to have a massive night throwing the football, and this means CeeDee Lamb will be a benefactor. Lamb is a fast receiver with great hands and a wide catch radius. 

The Giants were below average when it came to defending the pass last season. They also didn’t play well against quality opponents, so this is another reason to think Dallas will have the advantage at MetLife Stadium. 

Lamb has gone over this total four times in six career games against the Giants. He has gone over 100 yards in two of these six contests and is coming off a 106-yard game against New York. We think he is going to have another breakout performance.
