The Dallas Cowboys look to remain atop the NFC East as they travel to East Rutherford to take on the New York Giants. Dallas is currently a 6.5-point road favorite, according to FanDuel Sportsbook.

If you're looking for an alternative way to wager on tonight's game, here are four of the best prop bets for Monday night's game between the Cowboys and Giants.

1. Amari Cooper - Receiving Yards: Over 82.5 (-112)

Amari Cooper has been pretty much unstoppable over his last two healthy games. He racked up 226 receiving yards in Week 5, and 106 in Week 7. Cooper left Week 6 in the first quarter due to an injury, so it's hard to hold that 3-yard performance against him. He also draws a great matchup against a Giants' team that clocks in as the fifth-worst passing defense on Football Outsiders' pass defense DVOA rankings.

2. Dak Prescott - Passing Yards: Over 269.5 (-112)

Dak Prescott has looked like a different player this year, averaging 303.3 passing yards per game on the season. That puts him on a 16-game pace to reach 4,853 yards, which would shatter his previous career high (3,885). He torched New York to the tune of 405 passing yards back in Week 1, and looks poised to do so again come Monday night.

3. Daniel Jones - Passing Yards: Under 245.5 (-112)

Daniel Jones has been up and down throughout the course of his young career. He's only thrown for more than 250 yards in two of his six starts on the season. The two exceptions (Week 3 and Week 8) came against the two defenses that have allowed the most passing yards per game in the NFL, in the Tampa Bay Buccaneers and Detroit Lions, respectively. Dallas should provide a much tougher test, as the Cowboys are holding opponents to 228.0 passing yards per game (No. 9 in the NFL).

4. Saquon Barkley - Rushing Yards: Over 75.5 (-112)

Even if Jones struggles, Saquon Barkley has absolutely dominated the Cowboys the last two times he's faced them. Barkley tallied 120 rushing yards on the road in Week 1 against Dallas earlier this season, and he had 109 rushing yards in Week 17 last season.
