8 Crazy Prop Bets You Can Make on Giants-Cowboys Sunday Night Football

By the looks of both the New York Giants and Dallas Cowboys' Week 1 performances, Sunday night's showdown in Dallas might not be the most captivating offensive showdown. But that's why we've taken the liberty of outlining the eight most exciting prop bets you can make on the NFC East showdown. 

8. Ezekiel Elliott Over/Under 18.0 FanDuel Fantasy Points

Over: -115 / Under: -105

Ezekiel Elliott was a fantasy disappointment in Week 1, to say the least, and he would have been nearly fantasy irrelevant without his rushing touchdown from less than 10 yards out in the second half. Elliott is primed for a bounce-back week, assuming he will regress toward his fantasy potential mean in Week 2. 

7. Saquon Barkley Total Rushing Yards Over/Under 84.5 Yards

Over: -102 / Under: -124

Giants' rookie running back and 2018 No. 2 overall pick Saquon Barkley finished his NFL debut with an impressive 106 yards and one touchdown on 18 carries. But that doesn't tell the whole story. Sixty-eight of those 106 yards came from a single big run, which begs the question: Will Barkley be able to find more than 84 yards on the ground without a home-run play?

6. Dak Prescott Pass Attempts Over/Under 31.5 Attempts

Over: -112 / Under: -112

Giants safety Landon Collins already made it clear that New York wants to force Dallas to beat them with the arm of quarterback Dak Prescott, rather than the legs of Elliott. Prescott had 29 attempts in a Week 1 matchup with the Carolina Panthers that ended with a whole bunch of offensive nothing -- and more than 31 passes here doesn't seem like a far cry. 

5. Odell Beckham Jr. to Score 3+ Touchdowns

Odds: +4800

We've already seen one wide receiver catch three touchdown passes this week -- in one half no less -- when A.J. Green accomplished that feat on Thursday night. That's probably a driving factor behind why these odds are actually as low are they are. Beckham can go off for insane numbers any given week, but will it be this week against the Cowboys?

4. Dallas Cowboys to Score First & Lose

Odds: +400

If Dallas wins the toss, it's seems pretty 'Cowboys-esque' that they'd ask for the ball first at home in Big D. The Giants defense was solid in Week 1, but Elliott and Prescott are due for bigger numbers after being held to just eight points last Sunday. The hardest part of this bet will probably be the Giants coming through with the upset. 

3. Over/Under 1.5 Field Goals in Second Half

Over: -108 / Under: -112

Even though Cowboys kicker Brett Maher didn't make a field goal in Week 1 against the Carolina Panthers, Giants kicker Aldrick Rosas managed to make three of them against the Jacksonville Jaguars. Two field goals in the second half seems like a solid bet, but it may be spoiled by a late missed attempt. 

2. Giants to Win by 21-30 Points

Odds: +1800

If you're either a delusional New York Giants fan, or someone who has been to the future beyond Sunday night's game, this is the bet for you. The Giants are currently three-point underdogs, but we have already seen an abnormal number of high-scoring and/or blowout games in the NFL so far this year. 

1. First Turnover Will Be ...

Fumble: +125 / Interception: -170 / No Turnovers: +1400

Considering it's a classic Giants-Cowboys NFC East battle on primetime tonight, there's bound to be at least one turnover from one of them. So, the question isn't who's going to give it away, it's how are they are going to give it away?
