These teams opened the season against one another on a Sunday night and Dallas won 19-3 – after getting swept by New York last year even though the Cowboys finished with the NFC’s best record. In the Week 1 win, Ezekiel Elliott rushed for 104 yards and had 36 yards receiving. Dak Prescott hit Jason Witten for the game’s only touchdown. Prescott was turnover-free while throwing for 268 yards. Dan Bailey kicked four field goals. The Giants were without star WR Odell Beckham and their offense did nothing. Eli Manning was 28 of 37 for 211 yards with an interception.

Why Bet on Dallas?

Through 12 weeks, the Giants are 1-4 ATS at home, which is tied for the worst mark in the NFL. The Cowboys ended a three-game losing streak last Thursday with a 38-14 win over Washington to keep their wild-card hopes alive. The Cowboys never trailed despite a sluggish start to the offense, thanks to three first-half turnovers and four overall by the Redskins. Dallas kept it going after halftime with a 21-7 scoring edge after getting outscored 72-6 in the second half during the three-game skid. Alfred Morris, Elliott’s replacement during a six-game suspension for alleged domestic violence, had 127 yards rushing and a clinching touchdown. Prescott said the bruised right hand suffered in the Cowboys’ win wasn’t an issue during practice on Wednesday. He said he threw without limitations and removed a pad from his hand early in the session. Prescott suffered the injury in the second quarter on an option pitch when he was hit by a Redskins defender. He remained in the lineup through that drive, which ended in a Dan Bailey field goal, but went to the locker room for X-rays, which were negative. Cowboys top linebacker Sean Lee (hamstring) returned to a limited practice on Wednesday. It puts Lee on track to play Sunday against the Giants. His return will be a big boost to a Cowboys’ defense that has struggled for much of the year. Injuries have limited Lee to only seven games this season. When healthy, he’s one of the league’s best run defenders.

Who Else is Injured in the Dallas Locker Room?

It’s not likely that the Cowboys have top cornerback Orlando Scandrick as he’s dealing with a broken transverse process in his back. Despite the injury, Scandrick spent a large portion of last week’s game playing outside at cornerback, as the Cowboys limited Kirk Cousins to 251 passing yards and forced him into two interceptions. Dallas might not need Scandrick for this one as with Beckham Jr. and Brandon Marshall both sidelined by injury, the Giants have just one 500-yard receiver in Sterling Shepard. Their active receivers have also combined for just four touchdowns on the season. When the Cowboys take the field Sunday, the team will be wearing navy tops with white pants. This will be the first time this color combination has been used in franchise history. The Cowboys normally wear silver pants with their navy blue tops.

Why Bet on NY Giants?

Hey, sometimes players get fired up when their head coach is fired. Sometimes they just quit. On Monday, less than 24 hours after the Giants fell to 2-10 on the season with a 24-17 loss to the Raiders in Oakland, Giants president John Mara and chairman Steve Tisch announced the dismissals of McAdoo and Reese. Defensive coordinator Steve Spagnuolo will be the interim head coach for the remainder of the season. Spagnuolo, who is in the third year of his second stint with the Giants, has previous head coaching experience. The architect of the Super Bowl XLII-winning defense that upset the undefeated Patriots left in 2009 to become the head coach in St. Louis, where he served for three seasons. Spagnuolo already has reinstated Eli Manning as the team’s starting QB. His benching for last week’s loss to the Raiders was likely the final straw for the Giants to fire McAdoo. Manning had started 210 consecutive games over the past 13-plus seasons until being replaced by Geno Smith against Oakland. The streak was the second-longest in NFL history, only surpassed by Brett Favre (297). Are the Giants a safe bet in Week 14? Co-owner John Mara said the decision would be Spagnuolo’s, but he made it clear he did not think Manning’s one-week benching was handled well (even though he signed off on it). Perhaps Manning’s return to the lineup will provide an emotional boost for the Giants. One bright spot this year for the Giants has been tight end Evan Engram. Engram currently leads all rookies in touchdown catches, and is first among rookie tight ends in receptions (51), receiving yards (569), 20-yard plays (nine) and first downs (30).
