Cowboys vs. Giants Player Prop Pick

  • Daniel Jones (NYG) To Throw an Interception (-115)

While Giants vs Cowboys has been appointment television in years past, that may not be the case this season. The Cowboys starting quarterback Dak Prescott is out with injury, meaning we will once again see Central Michigan wonderkid Cooper Rush starting at quarterback. Rush led this team to an unexpected win against the Bengals last week, proving he is a bit more reliable then some people may have expected. The Giants are trying to get off to their first 3-0 start in recent memory, taking care of the Titans and the Panthers thus far. 

I genuinely do believe that the Cowboys defense, specifically that defensive line, is going to absolutely feast on Danny Dimes. I really do wish there was a way to bet fumbles, or total turnovers, but interceptions will have to do. Jones is known for his 

Turnovers, and especially struggles against strong defensive pressure. The Cowboys pass rush is one of the strongest in the NFL, assuming that Micah Parsons does infact suit up. The Cowboys are also another team that is very willing to go 1-on-1 coverage, giving more opportunity for their pass rushers to get after the quarterback. Receivers like Tyreek Hill and Stefon Diggs can take advantage of this, but I’m not sure Sterling Shepard & Richie James is the unit to do that. 

While Jones has only thrown 1 interception so far, he also hasn't faced the strongest of competition. He’s been working in fairly neutral game scripts, and they have been able to coast by relying on Saquon Barkley running 20+ times. In a high pressure primetime game I love the idea of trusting Jones to make a mistake. When sack props are released, I also really like the idea of targeting these Cowboys D-line for sack props, especially with Micah Parsons
