Cowboys' vs Giants: New York revenge from 1992 Thanksgiving game

The Dallas Cowboys have played every Thanksgiving since 1966. This year the Cowboys will play host to the New York Giants. It will be the second time these teams have met on Thanksgiving Day, the first being in 1992, when the Cowboys won 30–3.

The Dallas Cowboys (7-3) are 4-0 ATS in their last 4 home games and will try for their fifth consecutive home victory when their NFC East-rival New York Giants (7-3) visit them at AT&T Stadium.

Despite the Dallas Cowboys being the oddsmakers’ favorite at –420 in the “money line,” and the New York Giants listed at +330, bettors think quite differently and are favoring the Giants to win the game with 51% of wagers.

On the other hand, more than 58% of the wagers like the Giants +10, referring to “spread,” meanwhile 41% are favoring the Cowboys –10.  

“This is interesting, because 63% of the dollar volume of the spread line is put with the Giants, and only 36% is on Cowboys,” said Barry Barger, a senior betting analyst at BetUS.

The 40-3 win by the Cowboys against the Vikings in Week 11 has generated a lot of expectations for this Thanksgiving game. For that reason, BetUS has special lines about what player will score the first touchdown. Tony Pollard (+500), CeeDee Lamb, and Ezekiel Elliott (+600) are all Dallas players, while Giants RB Saquon Barkley is listed at +700.

“It's important to remember that the Giants rank 29th in the NFL in net yards per play at -0.7. In the meantime, the Cowboys, who are also 7-3, rank fifth in the NFL in net yards per play at +0.7,” adds Barger.

That disparity is evident in the prop on passing yards with Daniel Jones’ over and under at 193.5 versus Dak Prescott passing yards over and under 246.5.

The Giants will be looking to get even for their early season loss to Dallas. In September, the Cowboys beat Big Blue, 23-16 at MetLife Stadium.
