Giants vs. CowboysOur New York Giants vs. Dallas Cowboys picks are set and ready to go at Bankroll Sports, but if you’re looking for a bit of a different way to take advantage of some of the Sunday Night Football prop bets, you’ve come to the right place. Today, we’re going to be breaking down some of the best NFL props on the board for Sunday Night Football, all of which come courtesy of Diamond Sportsbook.

Longest Touchdown in the Game Over 47.5 Yards – Last year when these two played, there wasn’t a single touchdown that went for more than 40 yards. That being said, this time around, we see a lot of potential, especially on New York’s side. The preseason opened up with a bomb of a touchdown from QB Eli Manning to WR Victor Cruz, and the matchup is there for that same thing to happen again in this one. Cruz is going to be running free in the slot quite a bit, especially with Dallas likely blitzing on over half of the team’s passing downs. Add in there the fact that RB DeMarco Murray has a keen nose for the big time play, and the makings are there that there will be at least one of these really long touchdowns when push comes to shove on Sunday Night Football.

DeMarco Murray -5.5 Rushing + Receiving Yards vs. David Wilson – We would have loved this NFL prop bet even more had RB Andre Brown not broken his leg in the preseason. That being said though, Head Coach Tom Coughlin very well could be counting on more than just Wilson to tote the rock in this one, and he might have to behind a very suspect offensive line that is going to likely be missing both C David Baas and T David Diehl. Murray is a man that is running with gusto right now, and ever since he was benched for that fumble in the preseason, he has been a man on a mission. We have a great feeling that Murray is going to be rumbling for at least 100 yards in this one, while Wilson might struggle to ever really get traction. Murray is clearly the better bet here.

Victor Cruz +12.5 Receiving Yards vs. Dez Bryant – Bryant catches absolutely everything that comes his way, but we aren’t all that sure that Cruz isn’t the better bet here. We’ve already highlighted the possibility that the salsa dancing star can make things happen in the slot in this one against a Dallas secondary that is relatively suspect, but we want to focus in on Bryant here. Last season in two games versus the G-Men, Bryant had just a total of nine catches. Yes, those nine catches did go for some big time yardage numbers, but even getting to 100 might not necessarily be enough in this one. We know that the Giants know what’s coming this week with Bryant (and Miles Austin) on the outside. What we don’t know is whether Cruz, who had two lackluster games last season against Dallas, can be stopped with the new blitzing scheme that is going to be in place for the boys from “Big D.”
