An NFC East matchup between the 1-1 Cowboys and the 2-0 Giants caps off NFL Week 3.

Throughout the season, our VSiN experts will combine to give their best bets on every game. 

Odds are from DraftKings as of Sunday night.

Dallas Cowboys at New York Giants (-1, 39)

Monday, 8:15 p.m. ET

Matt Youmans: Brian Daboll was a big-time coaching hire by the Giants, and his offense is getting a major boost now that running back Saquon Barkley is finally healthy. The Giants are 2-0, easily could be 0-2, and good luck lasts only so long in this league. The Cowboys have confidence they can win with Cooper Rush at quarterback, and Dallas has the superior defense led by Micah Parsons.

Pick: Cowboys + 1

Dave Tuley: The Giants are a surprising 2-0 with narrow wins over the Titans and Panthers, but I’m still not sure they should be favored here. The Cowboys, with Cooper Rush, really stepped up (especially on defense) to upset the Bengals 20-17 as 7-point home dogs and there’s no reason they can’t do the same against the Giants. I've been liking this play more and more as we move closer to kickoff.

Pick: Cowboys + 1
