NFL Dallas Cowboys vs New York Giants Betting Preview for Week 3

Time to Feed Zeke

The Dallas Cowboys are struggling moving the football with quarterback Dak Prescott out with a right thumb injury and missing several weeks. That means running back Ezekiel Elliott has to be the force of the offense, as he has 25 carries for 105 yards (4.2 yards per attempt) without finding the end zone. 

The defense of the Dallas Cowboys have been doing pretty well so far this year, as they are allowing 18 points on 326 total yards per game thus far. Linebacker Micah Parsons is questionable with an illness and tested negative for COVID, but has been one of the best players on defense so far as he is tied for the lead league with four sacks thus far. 

Barkley Showing Off His Skillset

The New York Giants also have to run the football to move the chains as quarterback Daniel Jones is not a top quarterback. On the season thus far, Barkley has 39 rushing attempts for 236 yards (6.1 yards per carry) and a rushing touchdown, as well as nine carries for 46 yards (5.1 yards per reception). The Giants run the ball a lot with Barkley so far, as he is tied for fourth in the sport with rushing attempts and leads the league in rushing yards right now. 

The defense of the New York Giants have also been doing well so far, as they are also giving up 18 points on 325 total yards per game. They need to force more turnovers as they have yet to grab an interception and recovered a pair of fumbles thus far through the first two games. 

Who to Bet?

The New York Giants are considered a one-point home favorite and should be able to win at home here and improve to 3-0. The favorite has covered the spread in seven of the last 10 games. 

Dallas offense is not great as they are averaging just 11.5 points per game, while New York is scoring 20 points per game thus far. Having Micah Parsons being potentially limited at this point with an illness means a lot of issues depending on the rest of the defense, as he is the leader, and they are already without Dak Prescott offensively. Daniel Jones has done well enough as he has thrown for three touchdowns to just a single interception thus far, so he is not giving the ball away through the first two games of the regular season right now. Things are pointing towards them being able to win here.
