The Super Bowl Champion New York Giants will defend their crown against hated rival Dallas Wednesday night at 8:30 PM ET on NBC. The 2012 season opener has the Cowboys vs Giants odds week 1 shading the Giants by more than a field goal at -4 on the spread. New York appears just as strong as last year’s squad that hoisted the Lombardi Trophy and are listed at shockingly long 22-1 Super Bowl Odds 2013. The Cowboys who finished 8-8 last season are also listed on par with NY at 22-1 on the Super Bowl Odds 2013 with plenty of public money inflating their price tag. The Cowboys vs Giants Odds Week 1 have the Giants at -4 (-110 juice) on the spread in Vegas.
NFL Picks Analysis: Dallas will be fired up for this divisional game but their weak offensive line will be mauled by the Giants pass-rushers. Tony Romo is throwing to a trio of banged up receivers in Miles Austin (hamstring), Dez Bryant (knee) and TE Jason Witten (spleen) who will be facing a stout NY secondary. Romo played some of the best football of his career last season and will have his moments but the Giants pass-rush will create some turnovers. Giants QB Eli Manning has his own hobbled target in WR Hakeem Nicks (foot) who will be facing an improved Dallas secondary with #1 pick Morris Claiborne proving his worth as a cover corner. Knicks’s status aside the Giants have arguably the best wideouts in the game when Nicks, Victor Cruz and Domenik Hixon are on the field. New York’s run game has been suspect but the Cowboys run defense is not strong enough to make them one-dimensional. The Cowboys vs Giants Odds Week 1 moneyline is Giants -200.
Right now the New York Giants are a great bet on both the 2013 Super Bowl odds and laying the points against the Cowboys. The atmosphere should be electric for the NFL season opener which will give the New York Giants a healthy +4.0 point home-field edge. The Cowboys special teams are questionable and so have been some of the decisions made by head coach Jason Garrett. New York has won five of their last six against Dallas and expect that trend to continue Wednesday night. The Cowboys vs Giants Odds Week 1 Total is at 45.0 points.
