Dallas Cowboys vs New York Giants Same Game Parlay
This heated divisional rivalry will reach a fever pitch on Sunday night as the Cowboys and Giants, two playoff teams from 2022, will meet in a primetime showdown. When we’re building Same Game Parlays, we’re looking to combine player props and game picks that have strong correlation. If you find the right combination of selections, you can hit big with a nice payout on Sunday Night Football. Let’s find some winners.
New York Giants +3.5 (-115)
You can read my full preview for this game to learn why I like the Giants to cover and perhaps win outright on Sunday Night Football, but I’ll give you the basic rundown. I have Brian Daboll firmly in the Mike Tomlin and Mike Vrabel tier of coaches after last season – I’ll be looking to back him as an underdog throughout the season.
The Cowboys made some nice additions to their roster over the offseason, including wide receiver Brandin Cooks and cornerback Stephon Gilmore, but the loss of offensive coordinator Kellen Moore is massive. Mike McCarthy is now calling plays for Dallas, and his overcommitment to the run game could backfire this season.
Under 45.5 Points (-115)
While Dallas has an elite pass rush led by Micah Parsons, the Giants have an outstanding defensive line of their own. Injuries kept their top defensive linemen off the field at the same time for most of the season, but Dexter Lawrence, Kayvon Thibodeaux, Leonard Williams, and Azeez Ojulari are all former first or second round picks by the team.
If McCarthy is committed to uncreative early down rushing, Dak Prescott could find himself in difficult third and long situations that will cause the offense to stall out. Daniel Jones will also find it difficult to sustain success against Dan Quinn’s elite defense that ranked second in EPA last season.
Tony Pollard Over 71.5 Rushing Yards (-114)
This is the season of Tony Pollard as he’s set to be the team’s workhorse back for the first time after Ezekiel Elliott left in free agency. Pollard already went over this number in eight of 18 games last season despite splitting carries with Elliott, including a 105-yard effort early last season against the Giants.
If the Cowboys find themselves in the lead at any point, McCarthy will give Pollard a ton of carries, and he’s a dynamic runner – he ranked 4th in PFF rushing grade and third in yards after contact per attempt. Pollard averaged 5.2 YPC last year, so he should only need about 14 carries to hit the over here.
Daniel Jones Over 31.5 Rushing Yards (-114)
Daniel Jones is coming off his most effective NFL season, and his legs were a big reason why. He hit the over on this prop in four of his last five games and five of his last seven games to close out the 2022 season. Jones only went over this in one of his two games against Dallas, but the Giants now have more downfield receiving options for the Cowboys to be worried about.
Jalin Hyatt is an incredibly dynamic downfield target who can take the top off the defense while Darren Waller is expected to have a big role in the offense in his first year with the team. That could result in fewer stacked boxes for Jones to run into, and I like him to hit the over on this prop.
