You never know what the weather might have in store in mid-December at the Meadowlands, as the Cowboys hit the road for a division game the second straight weekend. This is a big number for Dallas. Certainly the Giants have underperformed this season and Daniel Jones has been banged up a lot this season, but this is a big spread with a low total and a tough spot for the Cowboys.
In the first meeting, Jones was concussed and Saquon Barkley left with an ankle sprain. The Giants trailed 17-13 early in the third quarter, but the wheels came off and the Cowboys rolled to a 44-20 win. Dallas was favored by a touchdown in that home game way back in Week 5. If we assume two points for home-field advantage, we’ve seen an eight-point adjustment between these teams. That seems like a little bit of an overreaction, even if the Giants have not had a great season to this point.
Getting double digits against a warm-weather team for a division game with a low total seems like a pretty reasonable bet.
Pick: Giants +11
