New York leads the NFC East division by 1.5 games over Dallas and the Philadelphia Eagles, as it looks to gain revenge from a 24-17 season-opening loss as 3.5-point home favorites to America’s Team. “I remember that game quite well,” commented Giants defensive player Antrel Rolle. “I don’t need the film to remember those games.” The Giants will need to contain Cowboys quarterback Tony Romo, who has thrown for 26 touchdowns and just 12 interception in 14 games against them. New York is 5-9 ATS versus division opponents the last two-plus years.
The Giants have won all three games they’ve played inside Cowboys Stadium, including a 37-34 victory as 4.5-point road underdogs a year ago. New York racked up 510 yards of total offense in that contest, as the game flew over the posted total of 50.5. It’s important to note that the unit was limited to a season-low 269 yards in the first meeting this season, with signal-caller Eli Manning getting sacked three times.
Dallas returns home after splitting a two-game road trip against the Baltimore Ravens and Carolina Panthers, but did manage to reward backers by covering the spread in each of those contests. The Cowboys haven’t swept the Giants in this rivalry series since the 2007 season, which isn’t likely to happen again due to a banged-up roster. If it plans on scoring a slight upset at home, linebacker DeMarcus Ware will need to play his best game of the year, as he’s sacked Giant quarterbacks more than any of the other teams he has played. Dallas is 3-10 ATS versus divisional foes.
The Cowboys will need to get tight end Jason Witten involved early in the passing game, as he’s tallied 33 catches for 320 yards and a touchdown thus far, but had only two catches for 10 yards in the first meeting in this series in 2012. Dallas will be playing without running back DeMarco Murray, who rank for 131 yards against the Giants on Sept. 5, as the team finished with a 143-82 advantage on the ground.
Sports bettors will likely back the Giants due to their 37-15-1 ATS mark on the road, while the Cowboys are 0-5 ATS at home.
