Odell-less Giants unravel in Dallas

Standout wide receiver Odell Beckham Jr. will not play for the New York Giants tonight. Money has been coming in on the Giants and has driven the line down as low 3.5, earlier this week. 'Covers Expert Marc Lawrence'.

It's becoming an annual September classic: Cowboys-Giants, Week 1, in primetime. However, the Giants have played well of late, winning the last three matchups.

Dallas isn't going to win if Dak Prescott only completes 46 percent of his passes again, so it's imperative that Elliott starts strong and finishes strong.

Last season, they could at least focus their efforts on Beckham when they played NY.

Landon Collins, Weston Richburg and Brad Wing joined Eli Manning, Jonathan Casillas and Zak DeOssie as game day captains.

Also declared inactive by the Cowboys for Sunday's game are quarterback Cooper Rush, cornerback Bene Benwikere, cornerback Jourdan Lewis, linebacker Anthony Hitchens, guard Jonathan Cooper and wide receiver Noah Brown.

He has made the Pro Bowl in each of the past three seasons and has finished every campaign with at least 1,300 receiving yards and 10 touchdowns.

It is the third straight season that the Giants will open on the road against Dallas.

The Giants are known for their deceptive defensive looks, which likely played a factor into the Cowboys' decision to go with the more veteran option.

With the best O-Line in the National Football League and with all guns on deck, they should challenge for the division again after going 13-3 last season.

The longest Giants win streak was September 1988 to September, 1990 during the Phil Simms, Bill Parcells, Lawrence Taylor era and it spanned six games. The Giants were 5-4-1 against the spread in 2016.
