NY Giants vs. Dallas,
10/28/2012 16:15 EDT,
Score: 29 - 24
Point Spread: -2/-110 NY Giants
New York Giants -2
The Giants are rolling. They've won three in a row and five of six. Expect them to keep right on rolling as they avenge a season-opening loss to Dallas.
The Giants have won seven of 10 in the series, including three straight in Dallas.
New York just finds ways to win. It won the Super Bowl last season with an offense that ranked eighth and a defense that ranked 27th. It's improved on both sides of the football this season, which is bad news for the rest of the league.
Eli Manning has taken his game to another level, and the Giants boast the second-best offense in the NFL (411.6 yards per game) as a result.
The team with the most passing yards has won each of the past three meetings. It was the Giants in two of those, and I expect it to be the Giants again. After all, Manning has completed 63.8 percent of his passes for a league-high 2,109 yards with 12 touchdowns and seven interceptions. Romo has completed 67.9 percent of his passes but has only thrown for 1,636 yards with eight touchdowns and nine interceptions.
Romo won the season's first battle but my hard-earned money is on Manning winning round two.
The Giants marched into San Francisco and earned a 26-3 victory over a team that took them to overtime in last season's NFC championship. I have no doubt they can notch a fourth straight victory in Dallas.
The Giants are 9-3-1 ATS in their last 13 games overall and an awesome 37-15-1 ATS in their last 53 road games. The Cowboys are 4-9 ATS in their last 13 games overall and 0-5 ATS in their last 5 home games. Lay the small number.
