The New York Giants have lost five straight and are pretty much done as far as playoffs are concerned. Eli Manning is completing 61.2 percent of his passes for 18 touchdowns and 11 interceptions. Manning has thrown two touchdowns and six picks in his last two games, and the Giants have lost six of their last nine games when he throws at least one interception. Rueben Randle and Odell Beckham Jr. have combined for close to 1,000 receiving yards and five touchdowns, while Larry Donnell has scored twice in his last three games. The Giants ground game is averaging 3.7 yards per carry, and Rashad Jennings leads the way with 455 yards and two scores. Andre Williams has scored twice in his last three games. Defensively, the New York Giants are allowing 26.3 points, 397.7 yards, and have forced 17 sacks and 17 turnovers. Jacquian Williams leads the Giants with 78 tackles and Jason Pierre-Paul has five tackles for loss.
The Cowboys are 4-0 ATS in their last 4 road games and 3-9 ATS in their last 12 games in November. The Giants are 19-45-2 ATS in their last 66 games in November and 0-5 ATS in their last 5 games overall. The Cowboys are 4-1 ATS in their last 5 meetings.
The spread on this game is way too low, as the Giants are a lousy football team, plain and simple. The Cowboys have had two weeks to prepare and are better than the Giants on both sides of the ball. I'd be surprised if this game wasn't decided by double digits. The Giants are simply fade material and have been for the last month.
