Monday Night Football Preview: Giants vs. Cowboys
2010-10-25

Sportsbook.com Monday Night Football Betting Odds: Dallas -3, Total: 45

The Cowboys remain desperate for a win, as they’ve dropped two straight games while the Giants have been one of the NFL’s hottest teams with three consecutive victories. The New York pass rush (21 sacks) should give Dallas fits. The Cowboys don’t allow many sacks (seven) but, like the rest of the team, commit a lot of penalties. Dallas is on pace to be the second team in NFL history to average 80-plus penalty yards per game – a stat that can not be ignored by the NFL betting population.

There is some injury news to report and it is all good news. New York WR Hakeem Nicks has been dealing with a bad hamstring all week, but says he will play Monday night. DL Justin Tuck and K Lawrence Tynes have both fully recovered from ankle injuries and will both suit up for this game. For Dallas, WR Dez Bryant will also play despite being limited in practice this week with an ankle injury of his own.

New York is winning in spite of Eli Manning’s highest interception rate (3.9%) since his rookie year, with eight interceptions in six games. The Cowboys have picked off 12 Manning passes in 11 career meetings, but Manning is 6-5 in those contests with 20 TD, a 57.6% completion rate and 221 passing YPG. He threw for 330 yards in a 33-31 win in the first regular-season game at Cowboys Stadium last year. Nicks leads the team with 36 catches, 417 receiving yards and six touchdowns.

Tony Romo has had success against New York, with a 64% completion rate, 204 passing YPG, 16 TD and 10 INT in nine career games against the Giants. But he threw three of those picks in last year’s home loss to New York and the Giants entered the week ranked second in the NFL in both total defense (265 YPG) and passing defense (172 YPG). The Cowboys defense has been nearly as effective as New York, ranking fourth in the league in both total defense (281 YPG) and passing defense (181 YPG). Dallas needs to create more opportunities for the offense as it has forced a league-low four turnovers this season.

The Giants are 4-1 ATS & SU in the past five meetings in the series, but this football betting trend indicates why point spread bettors should be on Dallas:

Play On - Home teams (DALLAS) - after failing to cover the spread in 4 out of their last 5 games, a terrible team (<=25%) playing a team with a winning record. (24-4 over the last 10 seasons.) (85.7%, +19.6 units. Rating = 3*).

If you are looking to bet on the Giants vs. Cowboys total, this betting trend leans ‘under’:

Play Under - Home teams where the total is between 42.5 and 49 points (DALLAS) - off 2 or more consecutive overs, in a game involving two average offensive teams (18-23 PPG). (45-17 since 1983.) (72.6%, +26.3 units. Rating = 3*).
