Saquon Barkley Under 13.5 rushing attempts (-130)

"Barkley has been right around the number the last three weeks as he's managed to play at least 84% of the snaps in each game, but the difference is those games were competitive at the end, with all either finishing within a three-point margin or going to overtime. Like last week, the Giants find themselves touchdown 'dogs on the road, but I have much more confidence the dynamic Cowboys offense will get the job done here. Teams have largely had to abandon the run against Dallas, with the Cowboys defense seeing the second-most pass attempts in the league and the fewest number of rushes, with only 46 of those 69 rushes coming from running backs. So it seems unlikely Barkley is unable to top 13 carries for just the second time this season."

Saquon Barkley Over 4.5 receptions (-110)

"While I don't think the Giants will feed Barkley a ton in the running game, I do expect him to see the ball plenty as a receiver with the Giants down Sterling Shepard and Darius Slayton yet again. Barkley has 11 receptions on 13 targets over the last two weeks, but the bigger reason to love this prop for the Giants running back is that the Cowboys are tied for the most receptions allowed to running backs this year, and the team they're tied with (Seattle) has played one extra full game. Austin Ekeler racked up nine receptions against the Cowboys, then the Eagles combined for eight RB receptions the following week before a guy named Rodney Smith had five catches against Dallas last week. If Rodney Smith can do it, Saquon Barkley should be able to do it too."

Anytime touchdown scorer: Blake Jarwin (+380)

"Not only have the Giants given up more touchdowns to tight ends than any team this year, but those scores have typically gone not to the primary tight end but to another guy at the position, with Albert Okwuegbunam, Lee Smith and Ricky Seals-Jones all taking part in the touchdown parade against the Giants. So while Jarwin has seen half the targets of Dalton Schultz, he's definitely in play to score his second touchdown of the season and has a much greater chance of doing so than the odds we're getting here imply."
