Against The Spread Pick
The Dallas Cowboys are going to start their 2019 regular season against their best friends the New York Giants on Sunday afternoon. These two teams will be going back and forth, to say the least. The Cowboys defense is hungry and ready to make another meal out of Eli Manning as they have in the past. The Cowboys are 4-0 SU and ATS in the past four meetings with New York and there is no reason to go against them at this point. With Ezekiel Elliot back in training from Wednesday he is likely to play in Week 1. Even if he does not, the Cowboys defense, which allowed less than 20 points at home last season, will be up for the task. The ‘Boys were also one of seven teams who held their rushing yards per game allowed under 100 yards. Expect the same as the Cowboys play a controlled and well-balanced game and defeat the Giants by the final score of 27-13.
Over Under Pick
As stated above, this Over Under Pick will also go hand in hand with the ATS pick. The Cowboys defense will be lights out especially against Manning running the offense. Barkley will be the offense once again and showcase why he was taken No.1 overall in a lot of fantasy leagues, but won’t help when they are nowhere near the RedZone. The total has gone UNDER in 5 of Dallas’ last 6 games against NY Giants as well as Under in 4-1 Cowboys last 5 games in Week 1. It is the smart and safe bet here as there should not be any issues of both Eli Manning and Dak Prescott staying average and keeping this Total WAY Under.
