NY Giants vs. Dallas Cowboys point spread

 We will open our Sunday NFL games preview with a matchup quickly becoming the most bet on event on the odds makers' sheets - the NY Giants vs. Dallas Cowboys football game. The NY Giants (11-2) have already delivered against the Dallas Cowboys (8-5) on Nov. 2nd, when the Cowboys lost 35-14 at home, but on Sunday the 'Boys will get one more shot at the Giants and from the look of it - they may be the favorite, despite their long list of injuries. With the 11-2 record, the Giants have secured at least playoff participation and a victory over the Cowboys would clinch the NFC East title. Meanwhile Dallas, currently second on the NFC East Standings, need to win the game in order to breath easier, although their final season game will be against the 7-5 Eagles.

 But let's go ahead and take a look at the point spread and betting odds on the Giants vs. Cowboys football game on Sunday, as posted by the online sportsbook Bookmaker. The bookie has listed the Cowboys as the favorite team to win the game, sitting on odds -150, while the Giants will be underdog for a first time in a long time, they are holding odds +130 to beat the Cowboys in NFL Week 15. The NY Giants vs. Dallas Cowboys point spread is currently at -3 points chalk the Cowboys with the total expected by the odds makers at 45.5 points. Keep in mind, however, that bettors are currently overwhelmingly taking the Giants over the Cowboys so we can see a big move in the odds and point spread by the end of the week, preceding the football game. And for those bettors who look at the trends - the NY Giants are 7-1 against the spread in their last 8 games and Dallas is 4-2 against the spread in its last 6 games. Note, however, that the Cowboys are 2-7-1 against the spread in their last 10 games when playing the Giants. Also, the total has gone UNDER in 10 of Dallas's last 14 games when playing at home against NY Giants.

 No doubt injuries will play a pivot role in this Sunday NFL game. The Giants seem to be in a better situation, injury-wise, with only linebacker Jonathan Goff, wide receiver Domenik Hixon and running back Brandon Jacobs missing Thursday practice, while Giants' running back Ahmad Bradshaw and cornerback Aaron Ross doing a full one. The Dallas Cowboys, on the other side, have much more to worry about: cornerback Adam "Pacman" Jones is out for NFL Week 15 with neck injury and running back Marion Barber, wide receiver Roy Williams, along with safeties Keith Davis and Ken Hamlin missed Thursday practice. Cowboys wide receiver Miles Austin and tight end Jason Witten did a limited one, however, silver lining comes out of the full Thursday practice done by the three linebackers Bradie James, Justin Rogers and DeMarcus Ware.
