All the info you need to experience the Cowboys and Giants game.
The Dallas Cowboys are making their annual appearance in a Thanksgiving Day game. This year it is against an NFC rival, the New York Giants. Both of these teams have 7-3 records, but they are not being equally judged. The Cowboys rate much higher, and DraftKings Sportsbook has them as 10-point favorites heading into the game. That’s a healthy spread for two teams with identical records. So what gives?
The Cowboys are coming off a huge win against a team that only had one loss (40-3 over the Vikings) while the Giants just lost to the Detroit Lions. On top of that, the Giants have a MASH unit in terms of injury with plenty of players questionable or missing the game. The Cowboys are at home, always an advantage. The advanced stats say the Cowboys record is truly earned, while the Giants have had some fortunate wins along the way. Finally, the Cowboys have already beaten the Giants this year with Cooper Rush under center.
For all those reasons, the Cowboys are big favorites to enjoy their Thanksgiving Day turkey.
