Tonight for Monday Night Football we have The Dallas Cowboys facing the New York Giants,
Kickoff is at 8:15 PM EST at MetLife Stadium in “New York” (it’s actually in New Jersey…).
The Giants are favorites at home, The Cowboys are getting 1.0 point from Vegas. So this is expected to be a pretty close game.
Cowboys vs. Giants Game Prediction
Although the Giants are coming in to the game as a slight favorite, this rivalry matchup has been pretty one-sided in recent years. The Cowboys have a 9-1 record in the last 10 meetings of these teams.
The Cowboys are still playing with backup quarterback Cooper Rush who is coming off an unlikely win against the Cincinnati Bengals last week. CeeDee Lamb and Noah Brown will have to do their part to help Cooper Rush though.
Saquon Barkley has been the glue holding the Giants offense together, accounting for nearly 40% of all their offensive yards. That’s just not sustainable, he needs help! Daniel Jones will need to spread the ball more with the pass game.
The Cowboys defense has been on a tear this season, logging 8 sacks so far. Four of those sacks coming from Micah Parsons alone, who is looking to become the fastest player to reach 20 career sacks. I expect that they will put tons of pressure on Daniel Jones tonight.
Bet Recommendation: Cowboys Moneyline

Saquon Barkley (NYG) Over 3.5 Total Receptions
Saquon Barkley has proven to be an integral part of this offense, both in rushing and receiving. Not only that, he seems to be a bit of a security-blanket target for Daniel Jones, someone he will always find especially in danger.
I expect this Cowboys defense to keep Daniel Jones on his toes and will look to Saquon a lot!
Michael Gallup (DAL) Over 25.5 Total Receiving Yards
Michael Gallup is set to make his return to the field after his ACL injury. While I generally would stay away from a spot like this, I don’t think he would play unless he were fully ready.
That being said, Michael Gallup retuning to the lineup means that defenses can’t simply stack up on CeeDee Lamb and Noah Brown, which leaves opportunity open for a guy like MG who they may not be fully prepared for.
