The Sunday Night Football game in Week 1 will feature a pair of NFC East teams, as the New York Giants and Dallas Cowboys get together. In the preseason, the New York Giants split their four games. New York lost their first two, and then came away with wins in the next two games.
The Dallas Cowboys are coming off a monster regular season a year ago, but came away with a loss in their first postseason game to the Green Bay Packers. The Packers then fell to the Falcons in the NFC title game. In this game, the Dallas Cowboys are -3.5 over the New York Giants.
Cowboys With Stars
The Dallas Cowboys have Dak Prescott and Ezekiel Elliott coming back for their second season. Elliott is going to play this game, despite his six game suspension. Elliott was fantastic a season ago, with more than 1,600 yards and 15 touchdowns. Prescott, in his rookie season threw for over 3,660 yards.
The Cowboys top receiver Dez Bryant is hoping for a full season of health. He has battled injuries over the the past several seasons. Last season he caught 50 passes for 796 yards and 8 touchdowns. Dallas plays their next two games on the road; at Denver and then on the road at Arizona.
Giants Looking to Repeat Success
A season ago, the New York Giants downed the Dallas Cowboys twice in the regular season. The Giants are looking to get back to that formula again this season. The Giants will feature a core of elite receivers, along with rookie tight end Evan Engram out of Ole Miss.
The top target for the Giants is going to be Odell Beckham Jr once again. The elite receiver caught more than 1,300 yards worth of passes, and caught 101 on the season. He will be teamed with new addition Brandon Marshall. The Giants play in Week 2 at home against the Detroit Lions.
Cowboys Win at Home
What a game this should be in Dallas. Many times we see shoot-outs between these two teams. Last year were both low scoring games. Look for both teams to air this one out. Dak Prescott and his talent pool against Eli Manning and his weapons as well. This is going to be a tough game for both teams to win.
In the end, the home team is where you have to place your bet. The Dallas Cowboys are going to win this game over the New York Giants. The difference in this game is the running game, and that’s where Dallas goes. Bet the Dallas Cowboys -3.5 over the New York Giants on Sunday Night Football.
