Giants vs. Cowboys: NFL experts make Week 5 picks
The New York Giants (1-3) will visit the Dallas Cowboys (3-1) at AT&T Stadium in Arlington, Texas on Sunday afternoon.
Opening the week, the Giants were listed as 7.5-point road underdogs but the spread has dwindled slightly to +6.5 as of this writing.
Let’s take a look at who some of the experts and insiders around the league are taking in the Week 5 matchup:
|Expert||Pick||Score (if applicable)|
|Laura Rutledge (ESPN)||Cowboys||N/A|
|Matt Bowen (ESPN)||Cowboys||N/A|
|Emmanuel Acho (ESPN)||Cowboys||N/A|
|Pete Prisco (CBS)||Cowboys||28-26|
|Jared Dubin (CBS)||Cowboys||N/A|
|Ryan Wilson (CBS)||Cowboys||N/A|
|Nate Davis (USA TODAY)||Cowboys||30-24|
|Lorenzo Reyes (USA TODAY)||Cowboys||37-29|
|Bill Bender (Sporting News)||Cowboys||28-19|
|Vinnie Iyer (Sporting News)||Cowboys||31-24|
After a week in which all 10 of our pooled writers (above) got it dead wrong, they have again combined to completely blank the Giants. Every single one favors the Cowboys but to varying degrees.
Peter Prisco has the Giants losing by just two and sees that as a last-second score. Meanwhile, Bill Bender has the Giants losing by nine and not really keeping it too close.
But these views are not exclusive to just our 10 writers above. Across the country, the Giants are the least-picked team to win in Week 5 at just 1%.
