NFL spreadGiants vs Cowboys odds provided a wild game in Week 2, with the Giants prevailing 33-31. Can we expect more fireworks this time around? The game is absolutely crucial for the Giants, who have struggled mightily since an impressive start. Can they close the gap in the NFC East, or will their playoff hopes collapse?



Giants vs Cowboys betting odds: Giants -1 (TOTAL: 45)
WHAT: NFL betting
WHEN: Sunday, December 6 at 4:15 p.m. ET
WHERE: Giants Stadium
KEY STAT: Giants have lost five of six
PICK: Dallas +1



Giants vs Cowboys betting odds maker breakdown: The Storyline
New York outgunned the Cowboys 33-31 in Week 2, but things have changed a great deal since then. Dallas has won six of its last seven games, including last Thursday's 24-7 win over the Raiders, to overtake first place in the NFC East.

The Giants, meanwhile, blew a 5-0 start by dropping five of their last six games. New York was easily handled 26-6 by Denver last Thursday. A loss would severely crush the Giants' playoff hopes, while a win could make the division race interesting again.


Giants vs Cowboys betting odds maker breakdown: Offense
Dallas' offense has cooled over the past three weeks, managing just 14 total points against the Packers and Redskins; the Cowboys did score 24 against the Raiders last week, but that's not really saying much.

The Giants are all over the map offensively, though last week's six-point outing in Denver was a low point. The running game is struggling badly, and a Giants back hasn't topped 100 yards since Week 5. It's putting far too much pressure on Eli Manning, who in turn is struggling.

Betting Edge: Cowboys


Giants vs Cowboys betting odds maker breakdown: Defense
Injuries have devastated the Giants' secondary; losing Kenny Phillips had a greater impact than most expected and, while the team's overall yardage totals are solid enough, teams are still scoring against New York at a healthy clip. The "D" is giving up 23.7 points per game, ranking 24th in the NFL. The offensive struggles certainly aren't helping to keep this unit fresh, though.

Dallas ranks third in the NFL in points allowed and hasn't given up 20 points or more since Week 7 against Atlanta. Sports betting fans can attribute much of the success to the pass rush, which ranks seventh in the NFL with 28 sacks. DeMarcus Ware leads the team with eight, including one in the win over Oakland.

Betting Edge: Cowboys


Giants vs Cowboys betting odds maker breakdown: Notable Injuries
New York's secondary has been beat up all season, and Phillips is done for the year. Running back Ahmad Bradshaw missed the Denver game with an ankle injury, though he's struggling right now anyway. Reciever Mario Manningham injured his shoulder and could miss this week. Running back Danny Ware is dealing with a concussion. Antonio Pierce might not be back till playoffs with a neck injury—the injuries are really piling up in New York.

Dallas, however, is one of the healthier teams in the NFL. Jason Witten has a sprained foot but it shouldn't slow him down too much - he had his best game of the year against Oakland.

Betting Edge: Cowboys


Giants vs Cowboys betting odds for total: 45
Neither offense is firing on all cylinders right now. With two quarterbacks - Eli Manning and Tony Romo - who are prone to mistakes, an advantage should shift to the defenses, both of which are capable of getting pressure on the quarterback. Take the under at your sportsbook.

Pick: UNDER 45


Giants vs Cowboys betting breakdown: Outlook and Pick
It's hard to fathom how much has changed since these teams met in Week 2. Though Dallas has had many bumps on the road, it's playing much better football than New York. Injuries and mental lapses have crushed the Giants and it's hard to believe they have much left in the tank. Bet on Dallas to pull off the "upset" and get the win.

STAN'S PICK: Cowboys +1
