The New York Giants will be on the road to face the Dallas Cowboys and look to build off a career performance by quarterback Daniel Jones. Dallas is the seven-point favorite according to Las Vegas’ NFL odds. A win for the Giants would put them within a game of Dallas in the NFC East so this is an important divisional matchup.

Last Game: The Giants scored the final 17 points in an impressive fourth-quarter and overtime performance against the New Orleans Saints. Jones threw for 402 yards leading the Giants to their first win of the season and 2-2 as an NFL pick against the spread.

Dallas won its third game in a row last week against the Carolina Panthers. Fourteen unanswered points in the fourth quarter may have concerned you if you bet online and had the Cowboys -4.5 when the Panthers pulled within eight points after being down as many as 22. The Cowboys eventually covered and remain the only team in the NFL undefeated ATS.
Cowboys RB Ezekiel Elliott (knee), WR Amari Cooper (hamstring) and DE Randy Gregory (knee) are listed as questionable to play Sunday.
Betting on the Game
It shouldn’t be a surprise the Cowboys are the seven-point favorite here. Dallas opened as a 7.5- point favorite. Perhaps Jones’ performance last week has impacted the line.
Prescott will look to throw 3+ touchdown passes for the third game in a row after passing for seven touchdown passes in the last two games. If Jones brings a similar performance against Dallas, the score hitting over 52½ is possible.
We know Dallas can score and it hit the over in three of its four games this season. The Giants hit the over in two of its four games and have scored less than 14 points in one game this season.
Health shouldn’t be an issue this time. Key players on the roster with a questionable status don’t seem to be a concern come Sunday for Dallas’ head coach Mike McCarthy.
