Dallas Cowboys vs. New York Giants Player Props (12/19/21)

The Cowboys and Giants meet up for the second time this season on Sunday with varying amounts at stake. Dallas is still fighting for the #1 seed in the NFC and can clinch a playoff spot with a win. The Cowboys can also clinch the NFC East with a win and a Washington loss on Tuesday. Meanwhile, the Giants have a 1% chance of making the playoffs per FiveThirtyEight and are dealing with an unfortunate number of injuries on both sides of the ball. In this article, I take a look at where there might be value in betting on player props in this divisional matchup.

Dallas Cowboys Vs. New York Giants Player Prop Search Tool

Dak Prescott Under 1.5 Passing Touchdowns

The Cowboys’ quarterback hasn’t looked quite right lately as he’s combined for just four touchdowns over his last four games. In the six games since his return to the lineup following a calf injury that caused him to miss the team’s game on Halloween, Prescott has thrown just eight touchdowns to six interceptions. It’s worth noting that Prescott did throw for three touchdowns when he faced the Giants earlier this season, but that was before the slump he’s currently facing. Dallas can win this game with its defense and rushing offense, and Prescott may not be asked to do a whole lot. The matchup is good, suggesting Prescott could have a big game, but we haven’t seen him do it in a while, and this prop is an excellent value at plus odds.

Sterling Shepard Under 45 Receiving Yards

Shepard has missed a handful of games lately with his quad injury, but in the two games he has played since Week 6, he has combined for just 52 receiving yards. The team reportedly expects him to play in this game, but it’s a tricky proposition to expect him to be at 100%. The Cowboys do have a beatable defense – they have allowed 269.5 passing yards per game, ranking 24th in the NFL. However, Shepard has only beaten this line once since Week 2, and I’m betting on him continuing to struggle with his quad injury and with Mike Glennon throwing the football.

Mike Glennon Under 196.5 Passing Yards

Speaking of Glennon, I’m riding this prop until the wheels fall off. In his three complete games this season, Glennon has averaged just 191.3 passing yards per game, including a game against the Cowboys earlier in the year in which he threw for just 196 yards. With Shepard dealing with his quad injury and Kadarius Toney on the COVID-19 IR list, the Giants again don’t have their full complement of receiving talent. On paper, a matchup against the Cowboys should provide Glennon with the opportunity to throw for over 200 yards, particularly as the game script will be in his favor, so this isn’t anything more than a one-unit prop. However, I’m always reasonably comfortable betting against Glennon.

Corey Clement Anytime TD Scorer

Keep an eye on injury reports, and don’t place this bet unless you get confirmation that one of Ezekiel Elliott or Tony Pollard is not playing in this game – extra points if both miss, but that’s highly unlikely. Still, it’s hard to bank on Zeke or Pollard being at 100% if they do play, given their recent injury troubles. Corey Clement played on 36% of the team’s snaps last week and got a red-zone rushing attempt, and I’m calling my shot that he finds the end zone in this matchup. The first time these teams played, the Cowboys put up 44 points, and they could have a similar offensive explosion this week. However, with Prescott’s recent struggles, the team could look to keep it on the ground more often, and Clement stands to benefit. Make sure to shop the odds on touchdown props as they can vary wildly from sportsbook to sportsbook.
