New York at Dallas

Sunday 12/14 08:15 PM Eastern

4 units on New York +3 (-110) (risk 4 to return 4)  RESULT: LOSS

The 11-2 Giants will take the field on Sunday as an underdog for just the third time this season. The first two times, New York won the games outright as they seem to relish the role of the underdog, playing the "no respect" card to a tee. They have now won seven of their last eight games outright when listed as an underdog, including six in a row! They are also a perfect 8-0 ATS and 11-1 ATS in their last 12 games as a dog. Eli Mnning is quietly having a very good year. While you hear more about the Giants three-headed running attack, Manning has put up 20 TD passes to just 8 INTs while throwing for over 2,700 yards. The Cowboys secondary looks as though it will be without Pacman Jones the rest of the year, and is otherwise banged up. It's hard to imagine Manning won't put up good numbers in this one. Their is also the video from last week showing Owens going off at the offensive coordinator of Dallas. Controversy and turmoil is brewing in the Dallas lockeroom and that is never a good thing. With Marion Barber not playing or playing hurt against the Giants 5th ranked rushing defense, Tony Romo is going to be under pressure the entire game, as the Cowboys could find themselves facing unfavorable 3rd down situations. That doesn't bode well for Romo. While he's been a top QB since he took over the starting role in Dallas, thus far he has shown the inability to get it done in big games. His "showtime" numbers tell a story. In games played from December 1st on (the money games in the NFL), Romo has led the Cowboys to a 4-9 SU record and a futile 1-9-2 ATS mark. As Romo goes, so do the Cowboys. We have one team here that has dominated as an underdog, and another that has shown the inability to get the money in the big game. I'll back the G-men here.
