Jones is averaging 48.5 yards per game up to this point in the season. DAL is 25th rushing the ball and NYG are 7th stopping it.
New York Giants vs Dallas Cowboys: NYG +3.5
That's not the only reason I like NY in this game. In the categories that DAL is ranked high, NY are equally high on the other side of the ball. These teams matchup close to each other across the board. In fact, NY actually come out on top with an edge because they hold a considerable advantage stopping the run. This will put even more pressure on Romo to step up and win this game. Let it be known that I'm not a fan of Romo and won't be until he proves he can consistently win when it's all on the line. His history in clutch situations is well-documented and he always finds a way to beat himself. Last week against MIN was another perfect example. His two interceptions led to 10 points for MIN and ultimately cost his team the win in a pressure-packed game. Now he must put everything behind him and try to come up with a good performance under the lights in prime-time with their season on the line. I certainly don't like his chances. If NY have a good start they will take the crowd right out of the game and the fans will get restless with the home team. This is also a divisional game so there won't be any surprises. NY will have little trouble getting up for this one because they know the importance of coming away with a victory. They will be able to play loose care-free ball knowing that DAL is carrying Mt Everest on their backs. I have this game as a pick em which is why I love the +3.5. Having the hook in a matchup like this is great value. Prediction: Bank NYG +3.5.
