NFL Betting Predictions: Dallas Cowboys vs New York Giants
NFL season is finally here with the first game happening September 5th with the Dallas Cowboys traveling to take on defending champions New York Giants. BetDSI Sportsbook current live lines display the Giants as large -220 favorites giving up -4 points to the Cowboys.
The Giants won both encounters last season with the final being in the last week of the season which New York won 31-14 to put them in the playoffs while leaving the 8-8 Cowboys at home during post-season. QB Eli Manning really stepped it up in the all or nothing game throwing three touchdowns.
Cowboys Tony Romo played good in the final week against the Giants throwing 29 completions on 37 passes for 289 yards and could have had a better shot of winning if he were not on his back or running for his life every play. The Giants got to Tony Romo for six sacks on the day and harassed em most of the game.
Dallas now has a new and improved secondary especially with first draft selection Morris Claiborne to hopefully thwart some passing attacks that chewed them up last season. DeMarco Murray will also be moved up to full time back over Felix Jones and he has looked sharp on limited carries.
The Giants will once again field one of the best defenses and nastiest lines in football with Justin Tuck , Jason Pierre Paul, and Osi Umenyiora. New York’s line wreaks havoc on opposing offenses and should do very much the same in 2012 making the Giants a tough game week in and week out.
Dallas Cowboys vs New York Giants Betting Prediction:
The New York Giants have just too much of a defensive front for the Dallas Cowboys weak offensive line. This game should look very similar to the last game 2011 between the two where Romo was harassed all game. Look for the Giants to win the first matchup of the 2012 season at home against the Cowboys.
