Dallas Cowboys vs. New York Giants Same Game Parlay Picks and Predictions

NFL betting expert Michael Crosson gives his same game parlay selection for Monday night's primetime matchup between the Dallas Cowboys and New York Giants. Odds provided by DraftKings.

Cowboys vs. Giants SGP Picks

  • Dallas Cowboys ML (-105)
  • Cooper Rush (DAL) Over 219.5 Passing Yards (+115)
  • CeeDee Lamb Over 4.5 Receptions (-115)

Payout: +685

The Cowboys have been on quite the rollercoaster to open the season, as Dak Prescott and co. scored just three points on 244 total yards in an ugly loss to the Bucs in Week 1 (L, 19-3), however, they bounced back with Cooper Rush at the helm in Week 2, as Dallas handed the Bengals their second straight loss with a narrow victory in Jerry World this past Sunday (W, 20-17).

The Giants, on the other hand, are off to their first 2-0 start since 2016, as Daniel Jones and co. posted a thrilling road victory over Tennessee in Week 1 (W, 21-20), which was followed by a tough home win over Carolina in Week 2 (W, 19-16), despite averaging just 20 PPG on 329 YPG across those two contests.

I’ll back Dallas here, as the Cowboys have the much better roster in this matchup, and their offense was surprisingly decent with Rush under center last week (20 PTS, 337 YDS); likely presenting a difficult task for a Giants squad that barely squeezed out victories in their first two matchups of the season against the Titans and Panthers.

Rush only has two NFL starts to his name, however, he played pretty well in both of those contests, as the Cowboys’ backup completed 24-of-40 passes for 325 YDS and two touchdowns against the Vikings last season, and this past Sunday, he completed 19-of-31 passes for 235 yards and a touchdown against the Bengals.

Sure, he’s not quite Dak Prescott, but clearly the Cowboys aren’t afraid to sling it around the yard 30-40 times with their backup QB under center, and they’ll probably find a decent amount of success doing it against a flimsy Giants’ secondary on Monday night.

CeeDee Lamb was pretty quiet in the Cowboys’ season-opener against Tampa Bay, as the Cowboys’ top wideout hauled in just 2-of-11 targets for 29 yards in an ugly loss to the Bucs in Week 1. However, Rush finally got the ball to him consistently in Week 2, as Lamb reeled in 7-of-11 targets for 75 yards in a narrow win over the Bengals this past Sunday.

I’ll back Lamb to have another solid game here, as CeeDee’s 22 targets leads the Cowboys’ pecking order by a considerable margin, with Noah Brown (14 TGT) and Dalton Schultz (13 TGT) standing next in line; and if Dallas is going to find meaningful success through the air in Monday’s contest, I expect it to primarily come through the Rush-Lamb connection.
