NFL Betting – Can Cowboys Turn Around Their Season Against The Giants?

Can Eli Manning hold the Dallas Cowboys back?NFL betting players have seen some collapses in their day, but this year’s edition featuring the Dallas Cowboys has been almost laughable and you may even feel sorry for them (although that’s not likely given how much some people loathe them). Wade Phillips was finally put out of his misery on Monday, and now Jason Garrett will begin his audition when the Cowboys head to New York (well, New Jersey) to face the resurgent Giants.

Cowboys Giants Betting – Sunday, November 14th, 4:15 PM ET

The Cowboys (1-7) looked absolutely listless in a 45-7 whipping at the hands of the Packers in Green Bay, and they all but gave up on Phillips, which means a coaching change had to be made. Jon Kitna was 19-of-30 for 183 yards, a touchdown and two picks, while Dez Bryant had nine catches for 86 yards and the lone Dallas score. In fact, these were the only two players who looked like they wanted to be there. It’s hard to find even one thing good about this game for the Cowboys, but football betting players got to see that Bryant is going to be a star in this league, whether it’s in Dallas or not.

The Giants (6-2) were on the good side of a 41-7 thrashing of Seattle on the road, and while they didn’t get a sack, they pressured the Seahawks into three turnovers. Eli Manning was 21-of-32 for 290 yards and three scores in leading the Giants to a 41-0 lead, and dare we say, he looked a little like older brother Peyton. The Giants also ran for 197 yards, and if they can continue to run the ball like that, the offense opens up for Manning. New York may be the best team in the NFC right now, and with that defense, it’s tough to bet against them.

NFL betting odds have the Giants as a 13.5-point favorite in this contest, and they’re 2-3 SU in their last five trips to New Jersey, along with a brutal 1-4 ATS mark. It could be much of the same for the Cowboys this week, as we think they’ll put up a fight, but the Dallas offense has been stagnant and they’re going up against the No.1 defense in the league. The Cowboys’ defense has no excuse for being as bad as they are, and if they can’t stop the Giants from running the ball, it’s going to be a long, long day for them. It’s going to take some time to turn things around in “Big D”, but it’s not going to start here against a hungry defense. Take the Giants to cover at your favorite sports betting sites.
