NFL Gambling Preview: New York Giants at Dallas Cowboys

NY Giants at Dallas 
Sunday, 1:30 pm PT - FOX 
CRIS Opener:
Dallas -4 O/U 49 
CRIS Current: New York +1 O/U 46.5 
Recommendation: Dallas

Sunday afternoon features a pair of NFC East foes as the Dallas Cowboys host the New York Giants. The Cowboys will start the year with rookie quarterback Dak Prescott as veteran Tony Romo will be out for 10 weeks with a fracture in his back. The 4th round pick from Mississippi State put up stellar numbers during the preseason, completing 78% of his passes and scoring 7 total touchdowns with no interceptions thrown.

The Giants dealt with some struggles offensively during the preseason, scoring just 48 total points (12 ppg). However, the three key pieces of the offense weren't around  much as quarterback Eli Manning and receivers Odell Beckham Jr. and Victor Cruz were rarely on the field together. On the flip side, the defense did look sharp throughout the preseason. Veteran Jason Pierre-Paul returns for what will be his first opening day start since 2014. Rookies Eli Apple and Darian Thompson along with newly acquired Dominique Rodgers-Cromartie are expected to shore up a pass defense that allowed an NFL-worst 299 ypg last season.

Five of the last six meetings have been decided by a single possession including both meetings last year in which the teams split (NYG 2-0 ATS). The focus on this handicap has obviously been on Prescott who as mentioned did look good during the preseason. Many, including myself, have concerns how he’ll react against first-stringers and more complex defensive packages. The x-factor though are the weapons surrounding him. Prescott has the benefit of playing behind one of the league’s best offensive lines and has playmakers Ezekiel Elliott, Dez Bryant and Cole Beasley at his disposal. It puts Prescott in a good position to manage the offense effectively, particularly against a Giants defense that while on paper looks improved but still grades out as league average. I’ll support the home team in this pick ‘em type price range.
