Football Betting – Giants Heavily Favored vs. Cowboys

The biggest football betting line is the one in the game between the Dallas Cowboys and New York Giants.

The Giants are two touchdown favorites in NFL football betting as they host the Cowboys on Sunday.  Dallas is 1-7 and they made a coaching change this week as they fired Wade Phillips and promoted offensive coordinator Jason Garrett. 

Giants -14, total 45 at SBG
The Giants are expected to roll over the Cowboys in this game.  It may not be as easy as everyone thinks though because of the Dallas coaching change.  Jason Garrett is changing the culture in Dallas with hard practices this week and a demanding attitude.  Whether that works this week or not remains to be seen but taking the Giants and laying two touchdowns is not a guaranteed win.

41-35 Last Time
The last time these two teams met it was 41-35 and the Giants knocked out quarterback Tony Romo.  The Cowboys were in trouble before that game but after that game they collapsed.  Dallas couldn’t stop the New York Giants offense in the first meeting but it should be noted that the Giants didn’t do a very good stopping Dallas either. Tight end Jason Witten had 95 yards and a touchdown against the Giants and Dez Bryant had a big night. New York moved the ball at will against the Cowboys and that could happen again in this game.  Dallas has allowed 121 points in their last three games. It is the most they have allowed in a three game stretch since 1960. The Giants have scored 144 points in their last four games. It is their highest total for a four-game stretch since 1968.  Jason Garrett may get the Cowboys to play hard but it is unlikely everything is going to be fixed in one week.
