The New York Giants are having about as bad of a season as it gets. Now, they are dealing with more key injuries heading into this rivalry game. The Giants just lost QB Daniel Jones for the season due to a torn ACL and are still missing TE Darren Waller due to a hamstring injury.
Now, they will have to send out rookie QB Tommy DeVito. He has played in two games this season. However, DeVito had negative passing yards in a heartbreaking loss against the New York Jets in Week 8.
Also, keep an eye on the Under in this game. Giants games have been a near lock for it this season. It has only failed to hit in one Giants game so far. With their offense already averaging the fewest points per game in the NFL, do not be surprised if it hits once again here.

● Points Allowed Per Game: 18.5

The Cowboys are coming off of a tough loss against the Philadelphia Eagles. However, they tend to be very good against teams who are currently under .500. They have played four such games this season. Dallas won three of those games and had an average margin of victory of nearly 33 points in those wins.
Now, they are facing a struggling Giants team who is dealing with key injuries. Plus, the Cowboys won 40-0 in their first meeting. Do not be surprised if they match that average margin of victory here.
Honestly, there is no good way to spin this. The Giants are really struggling this season and the Cowboys are the better team that is going to be looking for a bounce back win. Do not be scared of the 17 points. You may even be able to flirt with an alternate spread for better odds here.
