Dallas Cowboys vs. New York Giants - NFL Predictions

 

Introduction

The anticipation is building as we approach Week 1 of the 2023 NFL season, and Sunday Night Football brings us an exciting clash from MetLife Stadium in East Rutherford, New Jersey. The Dallas Cowboys are the favorites, with a 3-point spread and a total of 46.5 points. While the Cowboys hold the -163 moneyline odds, the New York Giants present an intriguing +143. Last season, the Cowboys had a 2-0 straight-up record against the Giants, but it was the Giants who covered a 10-point spread in a close 28-20 loss in Dallas. With this matchup on the horizon, let's dive into our expert pick and analysis.

 

Team Analysis

Dallas Cowboys

Overview

The Dallas Cowboys had a respectable 12-5 record in 2022 and secured a playoff spot for the second consecutive year. However, their postseason journey was cut short by the San Francisco 49ers in the divisional round. Quarterback Dak Prescott had a solid regular season, passing for 2,860 yards and 23 touchdowns in 12 games. Unfortunately, he also had a career-high 15 interceptions, indicating room for improvement.

Offensive Strengths

Tony Pollard emerged as a key figure in the Cowboys' backfield last season, with 1,007 rushing yards and nine touchdowns. With Ezekiel Elliott no longer on the roster, Pollard is set to play a pivotal role in the 2023 season. Prescott's favorite target, CeeDee Lamb, recorded 107 receptions for 1,359 yards and nine touchdowns. While tight end Dalton Schultz moved on to the Houston Texans, the Cowboys bolstered their receiving corps with Brandin Cooks, who contributed 699 receiving yards for the Texans in 2022.

Defensive Outlook

The Cowboys' defense will be under scrutiny this season as they aim to address past shortcomings. Improvement on this side of the ball will be crucial for their success.

 

New York Giants

Overview

The New York Giants made the playoffs in 2022 with a 9-7-1 record, and they reached the divisional round before bowing out to the Philadelphia Eagles. Quarterback Daniel Jones played a pivotal role, passing for 3,205 yards, 15 touchdowns, and five interceptions. His dual-threat ability, adding 708 rushing yards and seven touchdowns, adds another dimension to the Giants' offense.

Offensive Strengths

Saquon Barkley, who remained healthy in 2022, had a productive season with 1,312 rushing yards and ten touchdowns, along with 57 receptions for 338 yards. The Giants have added Darren Waller as a tight end, providing a significant threat to opposing defenses if he stays injury-free.

Defensive Outlook

The Giants will look to shore up their defense in the 2023 season, aiming to build on their playoff experience from the previous year.

 

Prediction

As the Giants prepare to host the Cowboys in this Sunday Night Football showdown, there's a compelling case for why the Giants will cover the +3.5 points spread. Last season's matchups showed that the Giants can compete with the Cowboys, even in defeat. With Daniel Jones' dual-threat abilities and a healthy Saquon Barkley, the Giants possess offensive firepower. Additionally, the Cowboys' defense remains a question mark, offering opportunities for the Giants to capitalize.

While the Cowboys may secure the win, expect the Giants to keep this game close and cover the spread. Keep an eye on this exciting clash, and remember to follow KingPin.pro for more NFL insights, expert picks, and in-depth analysis throughout the season.
