Giants vs. Cowboys: Betting odds, preview, prediction

Dallas looks to stay hot in NFC East showdown hosting the New York Giants.

With a 5-0 straight up and 4-1 against the spread record over their last five games, the Dallas Cowboys have emerged as a legitimate contender out in the NFC East. They'll look to keep their eyes on the division title this Sunday afternoon hosting the New York Giants.

Dallas is a 6-point favorite at home according to sportsbooks monitored by OddsShark.com. The Cowboys' propensity towards close games and New York's recent success in Dallas point to the Giants as the pick as a 6-point road underdog.

The embarrassing Week 1 loss that the Dallas Cowboys suffered against San Francisco seems like ages ago at this point. The Seattle Seahawks were 18-1 SU in their previous 19 games at home and a 9.5-point favorite last Sunday, but none of that stopped the Cowboys from marching in and coming away with a 30-23 upset win. The defense and running game that some bettors were doubting continued to have success even on the road against the defending Super Bowl champions. Dallas is 0-4 ATS in its last four games as a home favorite.

OddsShark Computer Prediction: New York 20.2, Dallas 25.6

Dallas hosts the New York Giants at AT&T Stadium on Sunday at 4:25pm ET.

The New York Giants went into last Sunday night's game against Philadelphia on a 3-0 SU and ATS hot streak, but that came to an abrupt end against the Eagles. After averaging 35 points per game over the three-game winning streak, the Giants were shut out 27-0 on Sunday Night Football. Going up against the red-hot Cowboys this week, the Giants will need to get their offense back on track in a hurry. New York is 4-1 SU and ATS in its last five road games against the Cowboys.

The OVER is 5-0 in the last five meetings between these two rivals in Dallas. Sunday's total is set at 48 points at sportsbooks monitored by OddsShark.com.

Three of Dallas's last four games have been decided by a touchdown or less. This could also be a letdown spot for the Cowboys coming off such an emotional and impressive win in Seattle. New York should bounce back from last week's dud effort to keep this one close enough to cover as a 6-point underdog.
