  • With a playoff spot locked up, the Cowboys are on a path to land the top seed in the NFC and spoil the Giants’ playoff hopes on the way. Dallas has yet to lose on the road this season and enters the road game as the favorite. The Cowboys will look to add to an ugly trend for the Giants that’s seen them rack up just three outright wins in their last 20 games as an underdog.

    Shark Bites
    • The Giants are 2-7 SU in their last nine games against teams with winning records.
    • Since 1996, the Cowboys are 1-6 ATS as a favorite on the road vs the Giants.
    • Sterling Shepard has scored a TD in three straight home games.

    New York has had the edge in recent matchups between the teams, covering the spread in three of the last four and winning two straight SU, including a 20-19 win in Dallas in Week 1. A solid argument can be made that Dallas is a much better team since that game as their star rookies, Dak Prescott and Ezekiel Elliott, have 12 games of experience under their belts and are among the best in the NFL at their respective positions.

    The Giants had a six-game straight-up winning streak snapped vs the Steelers in Week 13 but are currently on a run that’s seen them go UNDER the total in four straight games. This matches up with a trend that’s seen the Cowboys go UNDER in nine of their last 11 road games, and with the total hovering in the 47.5 range, bettors will be interested to know that both teams have been stingy on defense lately, allowing less than 20 points per game over their last three games.
