Over the years we have seen some incredible games between these two popular franchises, so let’s hope we see another one this weekend. There is no doubt that both will be desperate to win the game, because both come here on the back of defeats in week 1. The big matchup that everyone is talking about here is the battle of the running backs. Ezekiel Elliott should be a lot better this season, with nothing other than football on his mind, and he will be looking to show newcomer to the league Saquon Barkley that he is the number one back in this league.
Talking of Barkley and although the Giants lost their opener last weekend, he was one of two strong positives for them. On his first regular season start he scored a touchdown, while also running for over 100 yards so all in all it was a fantastic debut by the rookie. Giants fans will also have been thrilled to see Odell Beckham Jr back and catching for over 100 yards, those two will be the main focus of this Giants offence this season and you can find all of the odds at Bovada NFL sports betting.
Ezekiel Elliott also scored a touchdown on the opening day of the season, as well as running for 69 yards. After a tough time last season, he should be a completely different player with no worries or concerns hanging over him so his progress will be interesting to watch. If the Cowboys are to have success in this game and beyond then they need one of their receivers to step up and support Elliott by making big yards. They don’t have a standout receiver, but do have a pool of players who are all capable of producing when needed, so they will be looking for different players to step up and lead.
Both teams come here looking for their first win of the season so expect this one to be well fought out between two teams who have a big history together. When you compare the rosters overall, the edge slightly goes with the Dallas Cowboys, and that is made slightly bigger by the fact they are playing this game at home. The Giants have two strong offensive threats in Barkley and Beckham, but their defensive issues from last season remains and that is something that the Cowboys can take advantage of.

In what should be a close game, I am going with the Cowboys to edge this one.
