Sunday Night Football predictions: Giants vs. Cowboys odds and top bets

17:02 10.09.2023

In a highly anticipated NFC East matchup, the Dallas Cowboys are set to face off against the New York Giants on "Sunday Night Football." While the Eagles have been the projected favorites in the division for yet another season, some believe that the Cowboys have what it takes to dethrone them.

Dak Prescott, who has faced criticism in recent years for struggling in season-ending playoff losses, is looking to prove himself once again. Despite leading the league in interceptions last year, many still believe in Prescott's ability to bounce back. With a talented and healthy receiving corps, including Brandin Cooks and CeeDee Lamb, the Cowboys offense poses a formidable threat.

On the other hand, the Giants are facing challenges of their own. With an inexperienced secondary and a struggling offensive line, they may struggle to contain the dominant Cowboys pass rush led by Micah Parsons and DeMarcus Lawrence. Additionally, their key offseason acquisition, tight end Darren Waller, is questionable for Sunday's game due to a hamstring injury.

While the Giants have shown improvement under Coach of the Year winner Brian Dabboll, their offensive line remains a major concern. With the Cowboys boasting one of the best pass rushes in the league, it will be a tough challenge for Daniel Jones and Saquon Barkley.

However, the Giants have made additions to their receiving corps, including Pro Bowl tight end Darren Waller. With his size and speed, Waller is expected to be a key target for Jones. The Giants also have a strong rushing attack, with Barkley averaging 4.9 yards per carry against the Cowboys in his career.

The spotlight will be on Dak Prescott, who will be looking to rebound from a turnover-filled season. With a new offensive coordinator in Brian Schottenheimer and a focus on improving his connection with CeeDee Lamb, Prescott will be aiming to silence his critics.

Despite the Giants' recent struggles against the Cowboys, Coach Dabboll's impact and the home-field advantage could make this a much closer game than expected. The Giants have lost 11 of their last 12 meetings with the Cowboys, but with Dabboll at the helm, they are hoping to turn the tide. The Giants will be looking to keep the game within a field goal and potentially pull off an upset.

Overall, this divisional matchup is set to be a hard-fought battle. While the Cowboys may have the better roster, the Giants have shown improvement and have the advantage of playing at home. It wouldn't be surprising if this game comes down to the wire. The Giants are currently the underdogs, but with a spread of +3.5, they have the potential to cover.
