The NFL pits the Cowboys against the Giants in each team’s first NFC East matchup of the season, so expect both squads to step onto the field with guns blazing Monday night. Here’s a look at player props and anytime touchdown scorer bets for the Week 3 MNF clash.
Dallas Cowboys vs. New York Giants Odds
Dallas – priced between +100 and –104 on the moneyline – is a rare, 1-point underdog against the Giants – priced between –115 and –120.
America’s Team has had their way with New York, winning nine of their last 10 meetings. But with Cooper Rush making his first start against the Big Blue, this fixture figures to be more nip and tuck than normal.

Player Props, TD Scorer Bets for Cowboys vs. Giants on MNF
Saquon Barkley Over 77.5 Rushing Yards (-110, BetMGM)
We’re only up to Week 3, but Saquon Barkley appears to be as healthy and explosive as ever. The Giants’ workhorse back leads the NFL in rushing yards per game (118), starting with 164 yards against the Titans in the season opener.
The Cowboys pass rush is scary, but their rushing defense… not so much, as they’ve surrendered an average of 120.5 yards per contest on the ground. Leonard Fournette exploited Dallas’ weak rushing defense to the tune of 127 rushing yards on six yards per carry.
New York’s offense runs through Barkley, and given the way he’s looked so far this season, 77.5 (BetMGM) may seem too low. Bettors seeking plus-money odds can grab Barkley at +205 to hit triple-digit rushing – or even at +520 to reach 125+ rushing yards – on FanDuel.
Cooper Rush Over 207.5 Passing Yards (-115, DraftKings)
208-plus passing yards isn’t a lot to get Over this prop on DraftKings. It really isn’t, even for a quarterback of Rush’s caliber. Rush threw for 235 yards just last week against the Bengals in just his second career start. In his first-ever start last season, he totaled 325 passing yards.
Rush may not be an NFL starting-level quarterback, but he’s a quality backup who can surely manage just 208-plus yards through the air against the G-Men, as he’s done in both of his career starts.

Noah Brown Anytime TD Scorer (+275, Caesars)
Brown caught the team’s sole passing touchdown this season. Yet, he has the fifth-longest odds at Caesars among Cowboys players to score a six-pointer.
He has shown some chemistry with Rush so far, reeling in five catches and 68-plus receiving yards in each of the first two games, leading the team in both categories. Dalton Schultz is likely to miss tonight’s game, giving Brown extra room on the field to score in the second game in a row.
Richie James Anytime TD Scorer (+420, FanDuel)
James shines a light on the Giants’ rather dim passing offense. He leads the team in catches (10) and receiving yards (110), and is second in targets (12).
Fellow receiver Kadarius Toney is doubtful to play in this one, leaving James with more opportunities to get on the board. The Giants have scored three times through the air through two games.
