Giants vs. Cowboys Picks
Brandon Anderson: It’s another primetime under (78% this year) and a low September total (65% under with a total 37 to 40). Daniel Jones has also trended under at home, with 15 unders in 20 starts (75%).
I'll play the total instead of the Giants at home, since Jones is 2-5 against the spread (ATS) as a favorite and 8-12 ATS at home.
Simon Hunter: An ugly divisional NFC East game on Monday Night Football? Yes, please.
Old-school football fans are going to love this matchup, which features two teams who are going to rely heavily on their run games and defense. Neither the Cowboys or Giants have given up 20 points this season.
We all know the question marks on these teams at quarterback. I can see both sides playing it safe knowing it will be the defenses that decide this game. It wouldn’t shock me to see both of these offenses in third-and-long position often in this game.
Micah Parsons is looking like the second coming of Lawrence Taylor. He has a chance to make a serious statement in the Defensive Player of the Year race against this weak Giants offensive line.
I’d bet this under all the way down to 37.5.
Sam Farley: One of the feel-good stories around the NFL this season has been the return of Saquon Barkley. Yes, he came back last season, but with an additional summer healing and some reinforcement of the Giants’ offensive line, he looks quick, dynamic and like the player we saw when he entered the NFL.
One thing we know about a fully fit Barkley is that he can pull off a big run at any time. The line for his longest rushing attempt sits at 15.5. That’s a number he’s exceeding in both games of the Giants games so far this season.
The last time Barkley looked this fresh, way back in his rookie season, he had a longest rush of 16 or more yards in 12 of 16 games. I realize that’s a long way back, but it gives an indication to the potential we could see this year.
We’ve see opposition running backs have mixed performances against the Cowboys this season. Joe Mixon was poor, but Leonard Fournette dominated in Week 1. The Giants run blocking should help Barkley have a day more like Fournette than Mixon.
Back the over here on a player who looks reborn.
