Rivals Serve Slice of Distaste
On Thursday night football odds, Thanksgiving has a promising slate of games. The New York Giants vs Dallas Cowboys matchup could be the best of the day, as the two teams jostle for position in the NFC East.
The Giants (7-3) come off a disappointing 31-18 loss to the Detroit Lions, while the Cowboys (7-3) made a statement in Week 11 with a 40-3 romp over the Minnesota Vikings. Both teams have been covering machines this season, going 7-3 against the spread (ATS). Which team will emerge victorious on Turkey Day in this bitter rivalry?
Giants vs Cowboys Betting Lines
Fall of the Giants
While the New York Giants are 7-3 ATS, it is hard to remain confident in backing them. Over the last four games, the Giants were thoroughly beaten by the Seattle Seahawks (27-13) and Detroit Lions (31-18). Plus, New York barely escaped the Texans (24-16) and Jacksonville Jaguars (23-17). The Giants have major concerns as big underdogs against the Dallas Cowboys.
Against the Lions, rookie wide receiver Wan’Dale Robinson sustained a season-ending knee injury. New York’s passing game was already struggling, ranking 28th in passing yards per game. The Giants will miss Robinson’s speed, especially after he posted 100 receiving yards in Week 11’s loss. Also, one of New York’s best defensive players, safety Xavier McKinney (hand), will likely be out once again.
To defeat the Dallas Cowboys, running back Saquon Barkley must dominate. Dallas has been gashed on off-tackle runs and ranks 27th in yards allowed per carry and 26th in allowed rushing yards per game. The Giants rank fourth in rushing yards per game. Hammer the Barkley props this week.
Dominant Dallas Rush
After surrendering a 14-point lead against the Green Bay Packers (4-7) in Week 11, there was legitimate concern about the Dallas Cowboys. How did they respond? By thrashing the Minnesota Vikings, who were on a seven-game winning streak, 40-3.
The Cowboys’ pass rush erased the Vikings’ dangerous passing game by totaling seven sacks and 13 QB hits. TNF odds should be another big day for Micah Parsons and Co., as the New York Giants hold the NFL’s fifth-worst mark at three sacks allowed per game.

Heading into Thanksgiving, Dallas is as healthy as it’s been all season. Linebacker Anthony Barr will be the most important injury to watch for the Cowboys. He has missed the last two games with a hamstring injury. However, in his stead, rookie linebacker Damone Clark is emerging.

Giants vs Cowboys Head-to-Head
Dating back to last season, the Cowboys have covered three consecutive games against the Giants, including this season’s 23-16 win. Dallas has also won 10 of its last 11 meetings with New York.
The Cowboys have the upper hand in several matchups, including their pass rush against the Giants’ offensive line. In Week 3, Dallas had five sacks and 12 QB hits against New York.

- Worth betting on the Moneyline?
No, Dallas would offer little profit on the Moneyline, and the Giants are far too risky to win outright. New York’s offensive line will likely be overwhelmed, similar to Week 3’s matchup. Also, the Cowboys rank eighth in rushing yards per game and the Giants allow 135.9 rushing yards per game (25th).
- Worth Betting ATS?
Yes, I like the Giants to cover in this one. As mentioned, the Cowboys’ big weakness on defense is stopping the run. Even in the 40-3 win over the Vikings, running back Dalvin Cook had 72 rushing yards on 6.5 yards per carry.
In the last matchup, Barkley totaled 126 scrimmage yards and averaged 5.8 yards per carry. Since then, Dallas’ run defense has only gotten worse. New York will run early and often, controlling the time of possession battle and shortening the game.
- Worth Betting on the Totals?
Like the spread, I’m confident in the under. With the Giants milking the clock, both teams will have fewer possessions. The Cowboys won’t stray away from the run either, as they rank ninth in rushing attempts per game. The 44½ total number is just low enough to hit the under.
- Tempting Props?
Nearly any Barkley prop should do well in this matchup. Also, Cowboys running back Tony Pollard has touchdowns in three consecutive games with at least 15 touches in each contest. As Ezekiel Elliott continues to bounce back from a knee injury, look for Pollard to get plenty of work, leading to another touchdown. Fill your plate with running back props for the Giants vs Cowboys.
