Dallas Cowboys vs New York Giants - week 17: preview and odds

Updated: Oct 6, 2021

The Dallas Cowboys (6-9) visit the New York Giants (5-10) in a Week 17 Sunday matinee (1 p.m. ET at MetLife Stadium), and the Cowboys have been tabbed as road favorite.

Below, we take a look at the early Week 17 Cowboys-Giants betting odds and lines.

The Cowboys are coming off a 37-17 victory over the Philadelphia Eagles on Sunday. QB Andy Dalton (377 passing yards, three touchdown passes) and RB Ezekiel Elliott (105 rushing yards) paced Dallas in its third consecutive victory. The Cowboys have cranked out 108 points over the trio of wins, and it's the team's longest win streak since the opening three games of the 2019 campaign. Dallas will look to make it four in a row against a Giants team the Cowboys defeated by three (37-34) in Dallas on Oct. 11

The Giants dropped a 27-13 game at Baltimore on Sunday. The Ravens defense held New York to a 1-of-10 mark on 3rd down conversions, as Baltimore dealt the Giants their third straight loss. New York was held to just 54 rushing yards and 269 total yards. Its sputtering offense went into the game ranked 31st in NFL scoring (18.3 points per game). The trend of late has been worse still: the Giants have now scored just 26 points combined over their last three games.

ATS: Cowboys 5-10 | Giants 8-7

O/U: Cowboys 9-6 | Giants 3-12

The favorite Cowboys, at -145, have an implied 59.2% chance of winning (20/69 fractional odds, 1.69 decimal odds). If Dallas defeats New York by at least 3 points, a Cowboys -2.5 (-110) ATS wager wins.

At +125 odds, the Giants have an implied 44.4% chance of winning (5/4 fractional odds, 2.25 decimal odds). If New York wins outright or loses by 2 or fewer points, a Giants +2.5 (-110) ATS ticket cashes.
