Score: 17 - 35
Point Spread: +7½/-108 NY Giants
*3 Star Play on Giants* The New York Giants and the Dallas Cowboys have played some very tight games against each other in recent seasons. How close have these contests been? Seven of the last nine games between these two teams have been decided by a touchdown or less. I think this will be another close one.
Divisional underdogs have been money in the bank early in the season in the past few years in the NFL. In general, underdogs have been strong in the first couple weeks of the year. Divisional underdogs is an even stronger angle. These two teams clearly know each other very well.
The Cowboys will have Ezekiel Elliot on the field here, but this is a new offense under Kellen Moore. The Cowboys barely tried at all in the preseason and Elliot hasn't been with the team. Dallas has started slow in recent seasons and I think more of the same could come here. The Cowboys are 1-4 ATS in their last 5 in week one of the season. Jason Garrett isn't a good head coach, and that certainly plays a role in starting slow.
The Giants are 7-0 ATS in their last 7 road games. I think they stay in this one.
Take the New York Giants.
