The New York Giants are one-point favorites over the Dallas Cowboys for the Week 8 matchup between the NFC East rivals, according to OddsShark.com.

The Cowboys defeated the Giants, 24-17, in Week 1 behind a 307-yard, three-touchdown performance from quarterback Tony Romo. Since then, the Cowboys have lost three times and won two ugly games, while the Giants have been victorious in five out of six games.

The over/under for the game has been set at 47. The Giants have been lighting up the scoreboard, scoring more than 40 points on two different occasions while averaging 29.3 points per game. They've allowed nearly 20 points per game. That would appear to make this game a good bet for taking the over, but Dallas and its opponents have combined to score just 41 points per contest.

The Giants and Cowboys will kick off at 4:25 p.m. ET on Sunday. The game will be televised on FOX.
