NFC East arch rivals are going to be going at it on Monday Night Football, and here at Bankroll Sports, we have all of your best NFL prop plays for the night. Be sure not to miss all of these great prop picks, as the Dallas Cowboys and New York Giants fight it out in a tilt that could change the face of the chase in the division and in the NFC as a whole.

Hakeem Nicks Over/Under 6.5 Receptions
We know that Nicks is QB Eli Manning’s favorite target, and there are games that he just seems to lock in on Nicks and never let go. However, Dallas knows that as well and isn’t foolish. You can bet that coverage will be rolled that direction, just as it was last week against the Giants when Nicks only caught three passes for eight yards on the day. The man out of North Carolina has been dealing with nagging injuries all week that have kept him out of practice. Does that mean more reps for WR Mario Manningham and WR Steve Smith? Probably. The only issue is that we aren’t so sure that these two are going to really be the big men in the passing game. What we are sure of though, is that Nicks should be staying Under 6.5 receptions (-120 at Hollywood Sportsbook) on Monday Night Football.

Felix Jones Over/Under 78.5 Rushing + Receiving Yards
It seems like Jones is the new back du jour for the Cowboys this year, as he has seemingly replaced RB Marion Barber as the feature man in this lineup. Jones was used out of the backfield last week against the Minnesota Vikings quite a bit, as he caught ten passes and was truly remarkable in that standpoint. That’s the only thing that scares us on this prop. The Giants have a very tough nosed rush defense that really kept even the best of the league, RB Chris Johnson down for the majority of the game. We tend to think that Dallas is going to need more of the power rushing game and less of the glitz and glamour that Jones has to offer. QB Tony Romo will be kept busy once again, which will make for a lighter day for Jones unless he is used as a receiver. Go with the man out of Arkansas Under 78.5 rushing + receiving yards (-115 at Hollywood Sportsbook).

Total Sacks by Both Teams Over/Under 4
It’s tough to end up with more than four sacks in a game, but we are going to go there on Monday Night Football. This line probably should be at 4.5, and probably would be if not for the nagging injuries to DEs Justin Tuck, Mathias Kiwanuka, and Osi Umenyiora. Umenyiora has been absolutely beastlike since entering the starting lineup again, as he has seven sacks and six forced fumbles during this three game winning streak. He now has eight sacks on the year and is just shy of the league lead in that category. Remember that on the other side of the field, LB DeMarcus Ware already has six sacks as well. Both of these teams love to throw the football, and both have an easy time getting after the passer. Don’t be surprised if this prop turns out to be relatively easy. There should be Over 4 Sacks (-105 at Hollywood Sportsbook).
