Expert ATS Pick & Final Score Prediction
The Cowboys have already clinched a playoff spot, becoming the first team to punch their ticket to the NFL playoffs. A win this week will give Dallas the NFC East crown giving Dallas the inside track for the No. 1 seed in the conference, which guarantees every Cowboy postseason game would be played at AT&T Stadium.
The Giants are the only team to beat the Cowboys this season, doing so 20-19 in Week 1. Dallas has run off a franchise-record 11 consecutive wins since to forge the league’s best record.
I am betting that the Cowboys avenge their lone loss of the season. I am also betting that we see a heavy dose of “Eli Maning Face” on the sidelines. It’s win-win, unless you’re a Giants fan.
My final score prediction is Dallas 28, NY Giants 21.
