Monday Night Football: Mims picks Giants vs Cowboys and asks who gets more yards — Saquon Barkley or Ezekiel Elliott?

Robert Mims

These are my key numbers for the game tonight between the Dallas Cowboys and the New York Giants:

Cowboys are 4-3.

Giants are 2-6.

The Cowboys are coming off a bye week.

Giants lost to the Lions by the score of 31-26.

Cowboys are the favorite at -7.0.

The over/under total is 48.

The money line is Dallas -300 and Giants +250.

The Giants are the home team.

Dallas has won the last 5 games against New York.

The Cowboys have the top offense in the NFL with Ezekiel Elliott is accounting for more than 40% of the touches over the last two games. Dak Prescott is having his best season. The defense will put pressure on Daniel Jones. Saquon Barkley will start and be a factor in keeping the defense honest.

A prop bet that will garner interest is Elliott against Barkley. At the time of this post, I could not find that matchup available.

Dallas scoring over 27.5 is worth a look.

I have a lean toward the Dallas to win this game. My play would be to go with the money line. I am 9-7 in my selections on NFL Monday and Thursday. I have lost my last three leans. When you are in a bad stretch like this you should look at changing your strategy. My last three leans have been the favorites minus the points. So, my adjustment is to go money line.
