The New York Giants and the Dallas Cowboys are coming off disappointing season debuts, as they both ate a loss in Week 1. That should only make their meeting this coming Sunday even tastier and more competitive, as neither team wants to go down 0-2 to start the season.

Betting on the New York Giants (0-1)
For all the hype surrounding the Giants’ offense with the return of Odell Beckham Jr. from injury and the arrival of rookie running back Saquon Barkley in New York, plus the start of a full season under new head coach Pat Shurmur, the Giants still fell flat on the attack in their 20-15 loss to the Jacksonville Jaguars last week. It’s understandable, however, to get crippled by the Jags’ elite defense, but the Giants will have fewer excuses this coming Sunday against Dallas. Manning was held by the Jags to 224 passing yards with no touchdowns and with an interception thrown. Nevertheless, Beckham looked like he’s back to his old form, catching 11 passes for 111 receiving yards. Barkley, meanwhile, should continue having success on the ground against Dallas, which surrendered 147 rushing yards and two touchdowns last week.
The Giants are 5-4-1 ATS in their last 10 meetings with Dallas on the road.
Betting on the Dallas Cowboys (0-1)
The Cowboys extended their streak of scoring no more than 20 points to four games after taking a 16-8 loss at the hands of Cam Newton and the Panthers on the road last week. Moreover, Dallas quarterback Dak Prescott has now failed to pass for more than 200 yards in seven of the Cowboys’ last nine games dating back to last season. Against the Panthers, Prescott coughed up only 170 yards (19/29 completions) and was sacked six times, which was fairly uncharacteristic for Dallas, given that it has one of the best offensive lines in the game. Running back Ezekiel Elliott provided the lone touchdown for the Cowboys in the Panthers game, as he also finished with 69 rushing yards on 15 carries. Dallas’ thin receiving corps isn’t helping the team, but Prescott will have to make do with a wide receiving group that has Cole Beasley atop the depth chart. Beasley had seven catches for 73 yards against the Panthers while offseason acquisition Allen Hurns was a disappointment with only 20 yards on just one catch.
The Cowboys are 2-1-1 ATS in their last four games against the Giants.
Giants win, 24-21.
