The Dallas Cowboys are coming off an incredibly impressive victory against Minnesota Vikings. All three phases were firing well and it was arguably the most complete win this team has had in quite some time.
However, there isn’t much time to celebrate. With just four days to get ready, the Cowboys have a divisional game against the Giants that has major implications for the NFC East and the playoffs.
The somewhat good news for Dallas is that the Giants are dealing with some serious injury issues after their embarrassing 31-18 loss to the Lions. Six players had to remove themselves from the game at some point in Week 11, and we already know that WR Wan’Dale Robinson, CB Adoree’ Jackson, and former starting TE Daniel Bellinger will not play.
This should give the Cowboys an easier path to being 8-3 and asserting themselves as a true contender in this league. The oddsmakers agree too. Right now, according to BetMGM, the Cowboys are 9.5-point favorites and -400 on the moneyline. The over/under total is set to 45.5.
Before you fill your plate with turkey, pumpkin pie, and all the good sides, here are some prop bets to consider for this Thanksgiving game!
Dallas Cowboys 3 Best Prop Bets for Week 12 vs. the Giants
**All numbers are from BetMGM**
1. Dak Prescott Over 246.5 Passing Yards (-120)
No Jackson. No Xavier McKinney. Fabian Moreau hobbled. Wink Martindale’s defense relies heavily on blitzing the quarterback, knowing that the secondary can hold up behind the pressure. Now … what secondary are we talking about, in this instance? Prescott has made a living off roasting the Giants for years, and this might be one of his easiest battles yet.
2. Tony Pollard Over 67.5 Rushing Yards (-115)
Go ahead and take the over on Pollard’s combined rushing/receiving yards, too. Given the chance to prove his electricity once and for all, the semi-feature back has not disappointed.
3. Darius Slayton Over 46.5 Receiving Yards (-120)
There. Is. Nobody. Else. Catching. Passes. For. The. New. York. Giants. If you believe Daniel Jones will have, say, 150 yards passing, 70 of them will be going Slayton’s way.
