The Dallas Cowboys (5-3) and New York Giants (2-7) meet for a Week 10 matchup at the AT&T Stadium this coming Sunday. Going into this NFC East matchup, the New York Giants sit third in the division with two wins from nine matches, three games behind the second-place Dallas Cowboys. The Dallas Cowboys come into the game as the 17-point favorites, ready to take home the win – Can they live up to the expectations, or will the New York Giants pull off a surprise victory?
Form Dallas Cowboys
The Dallas Cowboys slipped to 5-3 for the season last week after falling to a 28-23 defeat against the Philadelphia Eagles. They are 6-4 across their ten most recent games and 4-1 in the past five at home.
The Dallas Cowboys are putting away 27.5 points per game this season and 37.0 points at the AT&T Stadium, which ranks them among the league’s best offenses. The defense, on the other hand, hasn’t been as effective in putting the brakes on opposing offenses of late. In the past five outings, 22.0 points have been lost on average. This is more than the home team usually gives up, having allowed a decent 18.5 points per game this season.
The Dallas Cowboys have been one of the surprise packages this season. Despite being billed as an unlikely bet in the NFC playoff race, the hosts hold the sixth seed in the NFC Conference in Week 10, leaving them set for an unexpected postseason berth this coming January.
Form New York Giants
The New York Giants aren’t in the best of shape at the moment after slipping to a 30-6 defeat to the Las Vegas Raiders last time out. To add insult to injury, they’ve lost their last four road matches. Their overall record for the last ten games is 2-8.
The New York Giants’ offense has been abysmal all season. It has put up just 11.2 points per game and they saw no improvement in the last five matches, which produced an average of 11.0 points. On the other side, the defense has struggled to contain opposing offenses, giving up 24.1 points per game this year.
Last term was a year of doom and gloom for the New York Giants. A 9-7-1 record left the away team third in the NFC East and out of the playoffs. They entered this season hoping to be a postseason threat. Based on their 2-7 start though, they have their work cut out.
The Dallas Cowboys won by a 0-40 scoreline the last time they played the New York Giants at the MetLife Stadium, which also meant the required total of 39.0 went over. Dallas Cowboys claimed no less than nine wins from ten games against the New York Giants and are favored by the bookies to extend their grip. The sportsbooks have the home win priced at -1515 for a 94%, which suggests the hosts have an 87% winning chance of victory.
In their past ten head-to-head games, the Dallas Cowboys pulled off 32 points on average per game, whereas New York Giants managed 18.9 points per match.
