NFL Betting Expert Pick – New York Giants Visit Dallas Cowboys

Posted by Marcello Messina on 10/25/2010 1:00:03 PM

After three straight wins, the New York Giants have quickly become a leading contender in the NFC East. Here are the top 3 reasons why the Giants are my NFL betting expert pick and will cover (+3) against the Dallas Cowboys.

(4-2) New York Giants at (1-4) Dallas Cowboys
Live from Cowboys Stadium – TX
Kickoff: 8:30 PM EST Monday, October 25, 2010
Broadcast: ESPN

NorthBet NFL Game Odds:
New York Giants +3
Dallas Cowboys -3
Total 44.5

1. Giants’ Pass Rush

Led by defensive end Osi Umenyiora, New York has one of the fiercest pass rushes the NFL. In his last three games, Umenyiora has totaled 7 sacks compared to just one sack in New York’s first three contests.

The Giants currently rank second in the league in sacks with 21.

This NFL betting Monday Night Football game, the Giants’ pass rushers face their toughest matchup of the season.

The Cowboys’ burly offensive line has allowed only 7 sacks so far this season (third-least in the NFL), assisting quarterback Tony Romo to a near 70 percent completion percentage.

However, Dallas’ front-four won’t be able to completely halt the Giants’ defensive line. Creative stunts and blitz packages should free up New York’s elusive defensive ends for at least three or four momentum-changing sacks.

2. New York’s Pass Defense

As a result of their successful pass rush, opposing quarterbacks have had a whale-of- a-time trying to settle into a rhythm against the Giants this NFL betting season.

Giving little time in the pocket, New York’s defensive unit surrenders an average of just 172 passing yards per game. The Giants defense ranks second against the pass this NFL betting season.

The Houston Texans were the league’s number one passing offense a year ago, and New York successfully limited the Texans to 196 yards through the air and zero passing touchdowns two weeks ago. New York has proven that they have no issue dealing with elite passing offenses.

3. Ahmad Bradshaw

To everyone’s surprise, New York running back Ahmad Bradshaw is performing as a top 10 rusher so far this NFL betting season.

After seizing control of the majority of the carries in New York, Bradshaw has been averaging an impressive 5.3 yards per carry.

Even with approximately 18 carries a week, the shifty tailback has run for nearly an average of 100 yards per game, while scoring a touchdown every other week. Bradshaw leads the league with 8 carries of more than 20 yards, and is showing no signs of slowing down against the Cowboys poor rush defense.

Dallas is surrendering an average of over 100 rushing yards per game this NFL betting season.
