The Giants are underdogs as they travel to Dallas to face the division-leading Cowboys this weekend.
The 6-6 New York Giants will travel to Cowboys Stadium to face off against the 7-5 and division-leading Dallas Cowboys Sunday (8:20 p.m. ET/NBC). The winner of this crucial match-up will put themselves in the driver's seat of the NFC East with only three games remaining, including another against each other.
According to Odds Shark the Giants opened as four-point underdogs, which is pretty standard, given the home team normally gets three points, all else equal. Since opening the line has settled between 3 and 3.5 on most off-shore betting sites. Money is coming in hard on the Giants. According to Vegas Insider 88 percent of wagers against the spread are being placed on the Giants, which explains the line change.
The Over/Under is currently 49, but may rise before kickoff given 93 percent of the wagers are being placed on the over. 75 percent of the money line wagers are also being placed on the Giants, who are between +155 and +170, depending on betting platform. If you bet $100 on the Giants to win outright you would win a little more than 1.5 times your money.
