Cowboys vs. Giants picks, odds from professional with four straight Dallas wins


Sunday Night Football opens with a thriller as the New York Giants visit the division-rival Dallas Cowboys.

The line opened at Cowboys -6, meaning the Cowboys were six-point favorites, but heavy action on the Giants and uncertainty over Ezekiel Elliott’s suspension pushed it all the way down to -4. We now know Zeke will play in Week 1, but will Giants WR Odell Beckham?

Before you make any bets on a game like this with so much uncertainty, you’ll want to hear what former Vegas bookmaker Micah Roberts has to say.

Cowboys vs. Giants picks, odds from expert with 4 straight Dallas wins

When the Giants hosted the Cowboys last December, Roberts told SportsLine users to go Under the total of 47. The result: a 10-7 Giants victory and one of the easiest Unders ever. It was Roberts’ fourth straight winner on Cowboys games.

He’s going for five in a row now and sharing what he’s picking over at SportsLine.

Roberts knows the Giants have won the last three meetings with Dallas outright and covered their last five. Their defense is as stout as it was last season when the G-Men allowed just 17.8 points per game, second in the NFL behind only the New England Patriots.

But just because the Giants had their rival’s number last season doesn’t mean he’s picking them this time around against a Cowboys team coming off an impressive 13-3 season. And Ezekiel Elliott, who had 15 rushing TDs and over 1,600 yards last season, will be in the lineup.

Giants starting receivers Brandon Marshall and Odell Beckham are coming off preseason injuries and Eli Manning tossed 14 picks last season compared to Dak Prescott’s four. Beckham traveled with the team to Dallas, but is still highly questionable. Marshall is all systems go for Giants vs. Cowboys.

Roberts thinks the Giants likely cover a line of 4, but he also knows there’s one huge x-factor that will determine whether the game goes Over or Under. And SportsLine’s Senior Analyst, Larry Hartstein, who won 82 percent of his Money Line bets last season, agrees with him.

So which side of Cowboys-Giants should you take? And is this prime time game going Over or Under? Visit SportsLine now to see what huge x-factor determines the point total of Cowboys-Giants, and what team will control the tempo from the start, all from the Vegas legend who’s nailed four straight Cowboys games.
