Giants vs Cowboys 2019 NFL Week 2 Spread & Expert Pick.

Giants vs Cowboys 2019 NFL Week 2 Spread & Expert Pick

Written by on September 5, 2019

You need only to look back at the last 15-20 years to see that the teams who end up winning the Super Bowl generally have a top QB on the field. There are a couple of notable exceptions to that rule, but for the most part, we are looking at future Hall of Fame players operating under center. When a QB moves on or retires, the goal is then to find a replacement who can carry the torch, a task that is easier said than done. Then Dallas Cowboys best years came when they had Troy Aikman at the helm, but they have struggled to find a suitable replacement since then, although Dak Prescott looks like he might be the real deal.

Over in New York, time is running out for 2-time Super Bowl winner Eli Manning, but the good news for the Giants is that rookie QB Daniel Jones looked very sharp in the preseason. The Cowboys and Giants will hook up in the house that Jerry built in Week 1 in what is an important divisional game for both teams. The Cowboys are favored by 7.5, with the point total set at 45 ½.

Why bet on the New York Giants?

It will be the veteran Manning who will get the start in Week 1, but you get the definite sense that he is on a short leash, especially given how well Jones played in preseason. Whoever the QB ends up being for this team, they are going to have one less target to throw to, with WR Odell Beckham Jr. now plying his trade in Cleveland. While he has left some big shoes to fill, the Giants may actually be better off without his divisive ego in the locker room.

The Giants will almost certainly be pounding the rock with Saquon Barkley, who helped this team go 5-2-1 ATS in the final 8 games of 2018. The bigger issue here is that the Giants are 1-4 SU and ATS in their last 5 meetings with Dallas. They are also 2-7 ATS in their last 9 September games.

Why bet on the Dallas Cowboys?

The Dallas Cowboys faithful are sure to be heaving a sigh of relief right now after hearing that RB Ezekiel Elliott just put his signature on a new 6-year deal. You hate to rely on a single player in a team game, but the reality is that the Cowboys offense is a good deal more potent with Elliott in the line-up. He did sit out training camp, so there may be some questions about his readiness for Week 1, but I think he will be just fine.

Ezekiel Elliott is going to play in Giants vs Cowboys.

Dallas are the defensing NFC East champions and have been dominant against their division rivals, covering the spread in 8 of their last 9 games against them. The Cowboys are 6-2-1 ATS in their last 9 Sunday games.
