Dallas Cowboys vs. New York Giants Player Prop Picks
The Cowboys and Giants renew their NFC East rivalry on Monday Night Football this week, and I’m excited to watch Eli Manning on the Manningcast discussing his former team. I’m also excited to place some player prop bets for this game, and the board is ripe for value here. This article will focus on the best bets on the board. To find the best odds in your market, you can use the Cowboys vs. Giants player prop search tool above.
Saquon Barkley Under 85.5 Rushing Yards
I understand the hype around Saquon Barkley – he looks to be back to his old form and ranks second in the NFL in rushing yards over expectation, per Next Gen Stats. However, this will be a difficult matchup for Barkley. The Cowboys are the best tackling team in the NFL per PFF’s metrics, and they rank 13th in rushing success rate allowed. Micah Parsons and Leighton Vander Esch might be the best linebacker duo in the NFL.
To make matters worse for Barkley, the Giants simply don’t have any receiving threat. Wan’Dale Robinson and Kadarius Toney aren’t expected to play this week, Kenny Golladay is nowhere to be found, and their two most productive receivers last week were Richie James and David Sills IV. The Cowboys can stack the box without much concern.
Barkley will be the focal point of the Giants’ offense, but the Cowboys’ defense is much better than the Titans and Panthers who they played the first two weeks. The attempts will likely be there, but I’m expecting Barkley to have a tough time ripping off long runs here. With a low over-under total and likely fewer offensive plays for the Giants, I’ll take the under here.
Daniel Jones Under 200.5 Passing Yards
It’s been a tough start to the season for Daniel Jones who has averaged just 182 passing yards per game thus far. The receiving corps has been ravaged by injuries and the offensive line has struggled to keep him upright outside of stalwart left tackle Andrew Thomas. With Micah Parsons bearing down on him this week, I don’t expect Jones to have very much time in the pocket to complete throws downfield.
The big concern with Daniel Jones would be if he finds himself in a pass-heavy garbage time scenario, but I don’t see that happening this week. The Cowboys don’t have a very explosive offense without Dak Prescott and with a banged up offensive line, and this game has a low over-under total. With a slower pace in the game and limited possessions overall against a very good defense, it’s hard to see Jones coming up with a season-high in passing yards this week.
CeeDee Lamb Under 60.5 Receiving Yards
After CeeDee Lamb had 75 receiving yards last week and showed some strong chemistry with Cooper Rush, you might be tempted to bet the over here. However, I believe this will be a much more difficult matchup for him. Adoree’ Jackson has been a consistently excellent shadow cornerback this year, and he has allowed just one catch for 27 yards on 79 pass coverage snaps, per PFF.
This game doesn’t profile as one where the Cowboys will need to air out the offense, and there’s a strong chance that Michael Gallup makes his debut this week, reducing the offense’s reliance on Lamb. With Ezekiel Elliott, Tony Pollard, and Dalton Schultz all highly capable, as well, I’m fading Lamb as he has the toughest coverage matchup of anyone on this team. Look for him to have an underwhelming game on Monday night.
