NFL: Dallas WRs to dismantle Giants’ secondary


NFL expert Tom Selwyn (@Tom_Selwyn) shares his expert opinion on the best bets available from Monday Night Football in New York.

Dallas Cowboys @ New York Giants | Tuesday 5th November 2019, 01:15 | Sky Sports

The Cowboys and the Giants return to one of their usual prime time slots this week after being shockingly excluded from it in their Week 1 match-up. I’m kidding of course, but (without any actual research) you can normally guarantee that one of these games will get top billing regardless as to the quality of the rosters.

This time around though, with Daniel Jones now at QB for the Giants and some great talent at the skill positions for both teams, this has the potential to be a fun game.

I’m going to be focussing on Dallas’ WR corps for this week’s pick as they utterly destroyed New York’s secondary in their Week 1 meeting, racking up just over 400 passing yards and hitting 4 TDs through the air.

Both Amari Cooper and Michael Gallup went over 100 yards in the game and I see no reason why they won’t have big games again this week as it hasn’t got better for the Giants since – they’re still 25th in the league against the pass.

Cooper is the clear #1 receiver, but Gallup actually has similar stats and gets the favourable lines due to being the #2. He caught 7 catches for 158 yards in Week 1 and I like the Over in both receptions (4.5) and yards (58.5) for him in this return match-up. Cooper’s lines are set at 5.5 and 82.5 for those interested..

Despite the addition of Leonard Williams from the crosstown Jets at the trade deadline, the Cowboys passing attack still holds a significant advantage over the Giants pass defence and I expect their WRs to feast again.

Best Bets

Dallas Cowboys @ New York Giants – Michael Gallup Over 4.5 Receptions (6/5 Paddy Power)

Dallas Cowboys @ New York Giants – Michael Gallup Over 58.5 Receiving Yards (17/20 Paddy Power)
