as for the game, I think the line is about right. Giants are only a game and a half up in the standings so they can't really be favored by 3 in a divisional game. For reference, the also 3-3 Eagles are now favored by 3 at home against a 6-0 team, so this line certainly isn't inflated.
I booked the Giants at a pk before it moved all the way to a favorite game, but the two things that scare me are 1) tony romo always plays well against the giants. 2) since tony romo is never a good reason not to fade the cowboys... I can't for the life of me figure out why anyone would be the cowboys here.
The giants are pissed, in revenge mode, and playing about as well as they usually do in strings of big games, and they've eked out close ones that they may have lost in years past (browns, bucs, skins). It's on the road so they aren't laying many points, which is always better for giants bettors. And while the giants are coming off a sloppy performance, the cowboys are off a win, two games after their best performance of the year since week 1 was all in vain.
matchups are heavy for the giants... O-line, D-line, QB, RBs, coach, big game pedigree. Cowboys secondary is pretty good these days, but the giants left a LOT of plays (drops) on the field in their first meeting in the meadowlands this year and i just don't see that happening again. Sean lee being out hurts the cowboys a lot and bradshaw should have a lot more room to run. While Jones and tanner will be injured/are fairly unimpressive.
As I said, I booked the giants pk early, trying to catch a sharper side of the line, but my spidy senses are tingling here and I'm really looking for a reason to bet out of this one... something juts doesn't feel right about it.
Dude your post is super confusing! I mean after all of what you just posted you came to the conclusion of "something juts(just) doesn't feel right about it...
