Giants vs Cowboys Betting Pick

The NFC East could come down to this game as the New York Giants visit the Dallas Cowboys in the Week 14 NFL Sunday Nighter.

The Giants come in riding a losing skid and the over under has been a better bet than the point spread between these two teams. The OVER is 7-2 the past 9 meetings of the Giants and Cowboys.

The Giants have been a great bet on the road in December, as they are 9-2 ATS past 11 games in that situation. The Cowboys's lame 2-7 SU and ATS run in their past 9 December home games plays right into that New York trend.

Dallas is also a weak 0-5 ATS past 5 within the NFC East. The best Dallas line was at Bovada late Saturday, ditto the best OVER value - check it out before kickoff.
