Monday Night Football features an NFC East battle between the Dallas Cowboys and the New York Giants. The Cowboys are 1-1 and have backup quarterback Cooper Rush starting again, and the Giants are 2-0.
NFL Same Game Parlay: Cowboys vs. Giants
Since the Cowboys are playing with a backup quarterback and wide receiver Michael Gallup is expected back with limited snaps, the focus here will be just on the Giants. This game has a low total set at 39.5, and these props fit that game script.
Leg 1: Daniel Jones Under 200.5 Passing Yards (-113)
Jones is not a very good quarterback, and his wide receivers’ talent is limited as well. The Cowboys have a good pass rush and should make Jones uncomfortable all night. Even in the two Giants wins, Jones only threw for 188 and 176 yards.
Leg 2: Saquon Barkley Over 23.5 Receiving Yards (-128)
This bet requires paying more juice, but it negatively correlates with Jones’ passing under, giving the parlay better total odds. Barkley is the Giants’ best weapon, and with the Cowboys’ pressure, Jones will have to check it down to Barkley a number of times. He has seven targets and four targets in his first two games, and he should have five or more targets tonight. That puts him in a great position to hit this prop.
