The best game the Giants played offensively during their dismal stretch of 5 game losing streak was against the Cowboys in Dallas. With a better defensive effort and without two costly turnovers – the Giants could have emerged winners in Dallas as well. But the reason I am picking the Giants on SNF is different than just a speculation what would happen IF. The reason for picking the Giants has to do more for not picking the Cowboys to have a 5-0 record away from home. In NFL that kind of a record is ridiculous and the refs will do everything in their power to prevent that as it is not a good business policy to have a team punishing local crowds and advertisers only to have a ridiculously great record away from home.
So, if we integrate between the two concepts – one saying that the Giants will have to come out after they learned what went so wrong in Dallas in a previous game and improve their defensive play – the refs might cut them siome slack allowing them to play aggresively and not throwing a flags on holding. On the other hand the refs can protect Eli Manning calling offensive holding each time the Cowboys will try to execute a schemes designed to pave the way to Eli Manning for sacking him. This is how I see this game being developed.
The division of public is also favorable for the Giants covering as despite the grerat majority of the bets being on visitors – the line did not move a bit.
This is a 5 Units Play
NY Giants +3 -110
