The Week 7 NFL slate pits the Dallas Cowboys against arch rival New York Giants, a matchup that’s becoming a perennial favorite for bettors banking on high-scoring games. The OVER has paid out in each of the last six meetings between the two clubs dating back to 2012.
This isn’t the same Cowboys team we’ve become accustomed to seeing, however. The ‘Boys, minus an injured Tony Romo and Dez Bryant, are 2-3 SU but are an ugly 1-4 ATS through their first five games. New York’s three game winning streak came to a crashing halt against Philadelphia last week in the form of a 27-7 loss at Lincoln Financial Field.
After an extremely rocky start, the Eagles appear to be figuring it out offensively which is bad news for the G-Men. The Giants rank 28th in the NFL in total defense, but are particularly bad at stopping the pass. New York is giving up an average of 298.5 passing yards per game – the third worst mark in the league.
