The Dallas Cowboys took a stranglehold of the NFC East with a 27-20 victory over Washington last Sunday. With the victory, the Cowboys expanded their lead in the division by three games and have basically locked down their NFC East crown. While the Cowboys playoff status appears to be solidified within the division, Dallas also has 1st round bye and home-field advantage opportunities that could be seized with a strong finish to the season. The Cowboys will close out the season against NFC East foes in three out of the last four games in which they will be heavy favorites. On Sunday, Dallas will be 10.5 point favorites when they travel into MetLife Stadium for a showdown with the New York Giants.

The New York Giants’ 2021 season has been steadily slipping away in recent weeks, with losses in 3 of the last four games. Most recently, the G-men suffered a 37-21 defeat on the road against the Chargers in a game that was never really close from the 2nd quarter to the finish. The Giants defensive performance has not left much room for optimism in the last few outings, and the offense has been significantly handicapped with the loss of QB Daniel Jones. Jones has been sidelined for two consecutive games in what has officially been listed as a neck strain. However, Jones reportedly had another MRI on Monday to determine there was ligament or spinal cord damage. As a result of the latest developments, it is very likely that QB Mike Glennon will receive his 3rd straight start against the Cowboys.

Dallas Cowboys vs. New York Giants Betting Analysis

In two recent starts, Glennon has completed just 40 of 80 passes for 378 yards with two touchdowns and two interceptions. SINCE RETURNING FROM INJURY, Star RB Saquan Barkley continues to produce mundane results and has not topped 65 yards rushing in the last two games. Needless to say, the Giants are struggling in every way imaginable on the offensive side of the football, and there are not any immediate relief answers either. When the Giants hit the field on Sunday, they will battle a Cowboys defense that is playing with extreme confidence and has all of the tools to exploit the Giants’ struggles.

Rookie LB Micah Parsons is making an undeniable case for Defensive Player of the Year, CB Trevon Diggs has been on a borderline league-record pace in interceptions, and the Cowboys defensive front is getting nastier with each performance. In last week’s 27-20 victory over Washington, the Cowboys offense posted another seemingly “off” performance. RB Ezekiel Elliott could not make much happen on the ground, and QB Dak Prescott had another subpar performance which included two interceptions and a pick-six.

Obviously, the offensive issues are concerning, but the Cowboys remain one of the most talented offenses in the NFL, especially in the receiving corps with CeeDee Lamb, Amari Cooper, and Michael Gallup. Backup RB Tony Pollard will return from a foot injury on Sunday, which could provide a boost in the run game. Pollard has arguably been the better back in 2021 compared to Elliott, who continues to play through a knee injury. If Pollard can provide some relief, it should help the entire offense, which has been more one-dimensional than most would expect in recent outings.

Jay’s Pick: The Cowboys defense continues to get better, and it is only a matter of time before the offense puts in a complete performance. Despite the 10.5 point spread, Dallas still has the most paths to a cover this week. Take Dallas -10.5. Don’t forget to check out my bowl game previews and picks!
