Monday Night Giants Cowboys Odds

There is a lot of action on Dallas to cover the Monday Night Football point spread tonight as they host the New York Giants.

New York may have won its last three games, but they failed bettors last week. The Giants were a 10-point favorite versus the Lions, but couldn't cover the spread in a 28-20 victory. That dropped the Giants to 3-3 ATS on the season as they prepare to take on the desperate Cowboys on the road.

Ahmad Bradshaw shredded the Lions' defense for 133 yards that day, and Eli Manning passed for 177 yards with a pair of touchdowns. Brandon Jacobs, who looked like he'd played his final game for the Giants not too long ago, had two rushing touchdowns. Manning had a solid game despite an injury-plagued performance from No. 1 receiver Hakeem Nicks, who had only three receptions for eight yards.

The Cowboys' nightmare season continued last week as they fell to 1-4 with a 24-21 loss to Minnesota as a 1.5-point underdog. Tony Romo passed for 220 yards with three touchdowns, but he also threw a pair of interceptions. Roy Williams had two touchdown catches, while Miles Austin was a non-factor with two receptions for 12 yards.

Penalties continued to plague the Cowboys, as they committed 11 penalties for 91 yards.

The Cowboys are 3-point home favorites tonight, but they may be headed for another upset loss if the recent history of this matchup means anything. Last season the Giants won both games against the Cowboys, including a 33-31 win in Dallas as a 3-point underdog. Overall the Giants have won four of their last five versus the Cowboys while also posting a 4-1 record ATS.

Dallas and the Giants have a lengthy history on Monday Night Football. Tonight's game will be the 11th time the Cowboys and Giants have met on Monday night. The Cowboys have dominated the Monday matchup with an 8-2 record in their 10 games. However, the last time the NFC East rivals clashed on a Monday night the Giants pulled off a 36-22 upset in Dallas as a 3-point underdog.

Both Romo (thumb) and Dez Bryant (ankle) turned up on the Cowboys' injury report this week, but both are probable and will definitely play. Notables on the Giants' injury report this week include Nicks (hamstring), Lawrence Tynes (ankle), and Justin Tuck (ankle), but they're also all probable and should be ready to take the field.

Even though the Cowboys sport a pathetic 1-4 record, Monday night's game is actually a matchup of two of the top defenses in the league. The Giants entered Week 7 as the No. 2 defense in the NFL, while Dallas is close behind them with the No. 4 defense. That points potentially to an UNDER on the posted total of 44.5.

Spread bettors would likely have a hard time backing the incompetent Cowboys right now. Expect Romo to face a ton of pressure against a Giants defense that is tied for second in the league in sacks. Without a lot of time in the pocket Romo will throw at least a couple of killer turnovers, leading the Cowboys to 1-5.
