Cowboys vs Giants MNF Prop Bets Tonight

1. Noah Brown - Receptions: Over 3.5 (+114)

Brown has emerged as a reliable pass-catcher in the early going with Michael Gallup out, averaging 5 catches on 7 targets per game and hitting the over on this prop in both games thus far. Brown also has undeniable chemistry with quarterback Cooper Rush after the duo spent many practices together over the last five years. With the Cowboys looking to get their season back on track, expect Brown to be targeted often enough to hit the over here, especially with Gallup still out and tight end Dalton Schultz unlikely to play as well.

2. Daniel Jones - Completions: Over 18.5 (-114)

Brian Daboll's presence has had a positive impact on Giants QB Daniel Jones. Although the veteran gunslinger isn't putting up huge passing totals, he's averaged 19.5 completions on a 70.9% success rate — the best percentage of his career. Jones has a good chance of hitting this over against the Cowboys, who are giving up 21.0 completions per game. While that's still better than most teams (tied for 12th-best in the NFL), it still gives Jones enough leeway to hit the over. That's especially true with Dallas giving up a 66.7% pass completion rate (T-No. 21). With this likely being a close rivalry game, Jones should throw the ball enough times to hit the over.

3. Ezekiel Elliott - Rushing Yards: Over 59.5 (-110)

It's no secret that Ezekiel Elliott has been disappointing to watch this year. The former Ohio State product has averaged just 52.5 rushing yards after two games but has a chance to turn things around on Monday. The Giants are giving up the 12th-most rushing yards this season and just gave up 102 rushing yards to Christian McCaffrey last week. Elliott is no McCaffrey at this point, but he has averaged 82.7 rushing yards in 10 career meetings with New York, surpassing 59.5 yards on six occasions. "Zeke" seems to turn it up against the Giants, which is a trend that must continue if the Cowboys are to win.
