Dallas is also 9-3 against the spread this season, but they have failed to cover in their last two games. Dallas has been impressive on both sides of the ball. Their defense is giving up just 19 points and 368.2 yards per game, which has led to them hitting the under in 7 of their 12 games this season. They have been especially tough against the run, allowing only 82.3 yards per game on the ground. Offensively, Dallas has averaged 27.8 points and 404.3 yards per game this season. They are led by a pair of MVP candidate rookies in Ezekiel Elliott and Dak Prescott. Prescott has thrown for 2,974 yards with 19 touchdowns and just two interceptions. He also has run for 217 yards and five scores. Elliott has run for 1,285 yards and 12 touchdowns as a rookie, averaging 107.1 yards per game. He also has 28 catches for 322 yards and a score.
The Giants had a six-game winning streak end last week in a 24-14 loss at Pittsburgh. The Giants are now 8-4 on the season and 6-5-1 against the spread. Unders have been their thing as well, hitting it in 9 of their 12 games. The Giants have been a surprising mess on offense for most of the season, averaging just 20.4 points and 335.6 yards per game. They have one of the worst rushing attacks in the NFL, posting just 77.5 yards per game. Eli Manning has thrown for 3,097 yards and 22 touchdowns with 12 interceptions. Odell Beckham Jr. is still having a big year with 75 catches for 1,015 yards and eight touchdowns, but his supporting cast hasn’t produced much. Defensively, New York has been pretty solid, giving up 19.8 points and 372 yards per game. The Giants are also a pretty good run defense, as they give up just 91.4 yards per game. The Giants will be without Jason Pierre-Paul, who is out for the rest of the season with a hernia. He has seven sacks in 2016.
