New York at Dallas 2016 NFL Winning Favorites For Week 1
While there are a couple of divisions in the NFL that have definite online betting favorites heading into the news season, there are also a coupe that appear to be totally wide open. The one that may well be the most intriguing of the lot is the NFC East. You really could make an argument for any of the four teams in there, and we will start to get a better idea of what we might expect this season in Week 1. The New York Giants, who finally cut ties with Coach Tom Coughlin last season, will have to go on the road to face the Dallas Cowboys in the opening week of the season, with both teams looking to set the tone in the division early on. Both teams had their issues last year, but both are also confident that they can win this thing and get back into the postseason. Nothing is decided in the opening week, but you can definitely send a message.

Why bet on the New York Giants
There can be no denying that Tom Coughlin did a wonderful job with the New York Giants, winning a pair of Super Bowl rings in his tenure there. After 3 straight losing seasons, though, the time was right to make a change. It’s going to be a whole new system for the Giants this year, but there are still a lot of familiar faces there. This is a team that is not short on talent, but which has underwhelmed more often than not. They have lost the last three times that they have played the Cowboys on the road, and have lost 5 of the last 6 overall. They were able to win the last meeting with the Cowboys, but that one came at home.
Why bet on the Dallas Cowboys
Two years ago, the Dallas Cowboys looked like a team on the brink of playoff success, but they were dumped out of the postseason after a rather dubious no catch call went against them. There was talk of redemption heading into last season, but this team ended up being totally crippled by injuries. They never really had a chance to do anything as the bodies stated piling up in the treatment room. This is a team that is loaded with talent, and which has a legitimate shot at the division crown if they can stay healthy. That is a very big if, though, so you can bet that the Cowboys will be trying to get as many wins under their belt as possible in the early part of the season.
Expert Pick and Final Score Prediction
While the Cowboys have had the upper hand over the Giants over the past three seasons, the games have a habit of being ridiculously close. I think this one will follow a similar blueprint, and I like the Cowboys to get the NFK Week 1 win.
