How To Bet On Cowboys Giants – Giants Set Cowboys Back in Season Opener
Dallas Cowboys @ New York Giants – Wednesday September 5, 2012 8:30PM EST
The football betting experts have yet to buy into the notion that the Dallas Cowboys is a Super Bowl contender, no matter how hard team owner Jerry Jones keeps trying to sell that idea. One thing that everyone can agree on is that the Cowboys should see significant improvement in its defense this season after addressing a few critical needs in the off-season and giving defensive coordinator Rob Ryan a full summer with his defense. Ryan was hampered by the lockout last season and hopes to be able to utilize the time he has had to his advantage.
The Giants has looked ready for the season to start for a couple of weeks now, and the sportsbook experts have been impressed with how the Giants has been able to avoid controversial headlines while still playing near New York City. The ability to stay out of the negative headlines during the off-season is something that the New York Jets could take a lesson in.
Why the Cowboys Will Win
Dallas quarterback Tony Romo was recently asked about the idea of a window for this team closing, as explained by owner Jones, and Romo stormed off the podium rather than answer the question. The truth is that Romo and the Dallas offense need to make it work this season or Jones will start dismantling the team when the season is over. Romo has a young and talented offensive line and enough tools to make an impact this year. If the Dallas offense can keep up with the Dallas defense, then the Cowboys have more than a decent chance to win this game.
Why the Giants Will Win
The NFL betting world can never give too much credit to a head coach when a team wins, and that is the case with the New York Giants. Some people may not like or agree with the way that head coach Tom Coughlin runs the team, but he gets results. The Giants looked ready for the regular season by the time the second preseason game was over. The only question is whether or not the offensive line will be able to give quarterback Eli Manning the time he needs to throw the ball deep. This game against the Cowboys will be an excellent test to see how far the Giants' offensive line has come.
The Bottom Line
For years, Tony Romo has been the source of distraction for the Dallas offense. Now that Romo is finally taking football seriously, the team is becoming a distraction to him. It is hard to imagine the Dallas offense hitting on all cylinders this season and being a threat to go deep in the playoffs. The world championship caliber New York Giants defense will stop the Dallas offense and hand the opening game to the Giants.
Pick: New York Giants
