New York Giants fans are still celebrating Sunday’s overtime victory over the New Orleans Saints, the Giants’ first win of the 2021 season. It is, though, already time to beginning thinking about Sunday’s week 5 game against the Dallas Cowboys in Arlington, Tx. The Giants are 8-underdogs, per DraftKings Sportsbook.

Per DK Nation, the line opened with the Giants as 5.5-point underdogs, and quickly moved to 8 points.

Dallas (3-1) leads the NFC East and has won three straight games after a season-opening loss to the Tampa Bay Buccaneers. On Sunday, the Cowboys defeated the previously unbeaten Carolina Panthers, 36-28.

The Cowboys are fourth in the league in offense, and have scored 41 and 36 points in their last two games. Dallas has compiled more than 400 yards of offense in three of four games. That poses a significant challenge for the Giants.

New York (1-3) hopes to add to the momentum created by Sunday’s victory. A win against Dallas would give the Giants an opportunity to fight their way back into contention in the division.
