Sportsbooks Odds: Cowboys vs Giants NFL Week 10

November 14th, 2010 by

cowboys vs giantsThere is no hotter team in the NFL right now than the 6-2 New York Giants. The Giants have won 5 straight games, the longest streak in the league and has out won those games by an average score of 36-13. This team is without question the best team in the NFC and quite possibly the best team in the NFL.

On the other end of the spectrum is the Dallas Cowboys. This team is one of just two in the league whose win total for the 2010 NFL season exceeds the number of head coaches it’s had.

Heir-apparent to the Cowboys’ head coaching job for the past 3 years, Jason Garret wishes have come true as he takes over the reins of the 1-7 Cowboys as they head to New Jersey for a Week 10 bloodbath.

Kickoff for this Sunday matchup is set for 4:20 Eastern Time and SBG Global Sportsbook opened with the Giants as a 14-point favorite with an over/under total at 45.5.

It’s very rare that you see a 2 TD over/under in the NFL betting odds and rarer still that you should bet on a team covering that kind of bloated spread. But in this weekend’s matchup the smartest play might just be picking the Giants to cover the spread.

Over the past six weeks no team has been able to get closer than 14 points in their matchups with the Giants. Interestingly enough, that the closest anyone has come to handing the Giants a loss was the Cowboys in Week 7 in their 41-35 loss. But the Cowboys lost more than just the game, they also lost their starting QB, Tony Romo, the last time these two teams played and John Kitna had better beware.

The Cowboys offense is much less competent with Kitna at the helm (12.0 ppg with Kitna as the starter) and if history is indication there’s a good chance that Cowboys 3rd string QB Stephen McGee will see some time under center as the Giants have knocked out 6 opposing QBs so far this season.

Garret may be a great head coach but his team is awful and his debut should be a game to forget as the Giants will roll to a big win in this sports betting matchup.
