Happy New Year to all! Let’s get this final week of NFL regular season betting closed out on the upside for Barry’s Big Bet, and this NFL Pick of the Week is a strong one with possible NFL Playoff implications.
The NFC Least has been made fun of almost all year, and a lot of it was by yours truly in a correct and light fashion. The thing is that this NFL division as a whole has been semi-worthy the second half of the NFL season. The winner of the Dallas at New York Giants game will represent the division if Washington loses to Philadelphia on Sunday Night Football.
Dallas Underrated Last Week
The Cowboys showed life last week in a win at home against the Eagles last week, and I underestimated their drive to close the season with a chance at the NFL Playoffs. The NFL Pick of the Week last week for Barry’s Big Bet was against the Cowboys, and that was not a correct decision. This week I am taking the hit for that and applying what I saw in that game along with the Giants’ lack of a good team.
In this game, the Giants should be lamb for the slaughter in this game hosting their rivals from Texas. Dallas is less than that all-important 3 number by sports betting odds at BetUS.com in this game. They should be able to close this baby out and wait for the Washington Whatevers to lose our poorly chosen only NFL night game this week to the Eagles!
If you’re still wondering, Dallas is the NFL Pick of the Week by Week 17 NFL Odds, and this should be the easiest NFL bet on the board Sunday.
Dallas Cowboys -2 at New York Giants
Over/Under Total 44½.
Cowboys Offense should have an EZ-ekiel Scoring Day
Since running back Tony Pollard has been eating into Ezekiel Elliott’s touches, Elliott must have decided to save his job and step up his game last week with 139 yards to Pollard’s 20. The Giants provide a big opportunity for him to blow it up in a big game.
The Giants were hammered by the running backs from the Baltimore Ravens and Cleveland Browns for 257 yards and nearly a five-yard average the last two weeks. You can expect heavy doses of Elliott in what promises to be a monster day both rushing and receiving out of the backfield.
Giants are Not Giant
I can understand betting Super Bowl Odds on your favorite team, so it is understandable if some people out there have NFL Futures on the better of two New York NFL teams. You will be able to throw those tickets out after they get gutted by Dallas, but the hope is one of the biggest things Giants fans have the last few years.
There is nobody including me that would say the Cowboys’ defense is something to fear, but when you have such an immobile quarterback as Daniel Jones behind center you can bet against the Giants doing anything close to Giant on offense this week. Since the Cowboys are depleted in the middle-of-the-field, you can expect some success with Sterling Shepard and Evan Engram if he is close to 100%.
Unfortunately, the Giants’ 3-way split in the backfield involving Wayne Gallman, Alfred Morris and Dion Lewis will not be able to take advantage of the Cowboys’ lacking defense against the rush. Add in the fact that Devonta Freeman may return for this game, and you have a below-average backfield that can’t decide which scrub to try and score with.
Andy Dalton is coming off his best game of the year and will surely not match the results he had against Philly last week. He should have enough success with his talented receiver core of Amari Cooper and Michael Gallup to insure the win and possibility to represent the worst division in the NFL!
