If taking a side isn’t your thing, DraftKings Sportsbook has plenty of props to get in on. Here’s a few that are particularly interesting given the line and the matchup.
Jake Ferguson Over 26.5 Receiving Yards (-120)
The Giants were bad at covering tight ends last season. Opposing tight ends combined for 106 receptions for 1,140 yards and eight touchdowns. Even Peyton Hendershot had three catches for 43 yards in the Cowboys first matchup with the Giants last season because Dalton Schultz missed the game with injury.
Schultz is now in Houston and Ferguson has taken over the starting tight end role. Tight ends often make a big jump from Year 1 to Year 2. So while second-round draft pick Luke Schoonmaker might eat into his role as the year goes on, that’s not a concern this week.
Saquon Barkley to Have More Rushing and Receiving Yards than Tony Pollard (-115)
Here’s a fun one from DraftKings. A head-to-head prop pitting two of the most explosive running backs in the game with Barkley getting a slight nod (-1.5) as the favorite to have more combined yards than his Cowboys counterpart.
Barkley’s a good pick here for a few reasons. The injuries to the Cowboys offensive line are going to make it hard for them to get the run game going against the Giants defensive front. In the passing game, the Cowboys just have more weapons who can get involved.
With Darren Waller injured, the Giants best receiver might just be Barkley and he’s going to get his opportunities in the run game.
Isaiah Hodgins Anytime Touchdown Scorer (+390)
It’s always fun to find some value on an anytime touchdown line because it’s something that will make the game interesting the who way through barring injury.
Hodgins brings back a lot of value on this line. He hasn’t been highlighted throughout the offseason as a potential top receiver for the Giants this year, but that’s how he finished the season. The 6’3″, 200-pound receiver found paydirt in four of the last five games last season.
The Giants have upgraeded their receiving corps, but Hodgins remains one of the biggest receivers they have and Jones has clearly built some chemistry with him. This one is worth a dart throw.
