Public Betting Information
Bettors are backing the underdog in this matchup. As of this writing, 63% of public bettors are taking the Giants with the points.
OUR PREDICTION: The Cowboys drafted Taco Charlton in the first round this year and while he'll boost the unit's athleticism, rookie pass-rushers have a difficult time making a huge impact. Dallas doesn't have enough pass-rushers to be a dangerous defense and they could struggle versus the run this year, too. The over is 7-1 in the last eight meetings between these two teams in Dallas and 7-2 in the last nine meetings overall.
