NFL NFC East
- Dallas Cowboys +130
As long as quarterback Dak Prescott returns one-hundred percent, the Dallas Cowboys shouldn’t just win the NFC East, but they should also challenge for the conference title. CeeDee Lamb caught 75 passes for 935 yards and 5 TDs as a rookie.
Amari Cooper and Michael Gallup remain a part of the receiving corps. Blake Jarwin is a question at tight-end, but the offensive line, like always, is stacked.
The defense played awful last season. There’s a reason to be positive, though. The Boys allowed 23 points just once in their final four games and that was 33 to the 49ers in a 41-33 victory. Also, Dallas used their first 6 draft picks, a Round 1, a Round 2, three Round 3 picks, and a Round 4, on defenders.
Cowboys Offer Fair Odds: Yes
- Washington Football Team +180
As of July 1, Washington lists Ryan Fitzpatrick first on their QB depth chart. Fitzpatrick can still sling it. But the WFT isn’t sold on Fitzpatrick.
Washington could decide to go with Taylor Heinicke depending on what happens during training camp. Heinicke threw for 306 yards versus the Tampa Bay Buccaneers in an NFC Wildcard Playoff game.
No matter who plays quarterback for the WFT, Ron Rivera’s defense will be one of the best in the NFL. So if you don’t want to back chalk, the +180 are fair odds.
WFT Offers Fair Odds: Yes
- Philadelphia Eagles +600
Most NFL futures handicappers don’t believe in the Eagles. Jalen Hurts could turn into a decent pro quarterback. But he completed just 52% of his passes last season and threw 4 interceptions to 6 touchdowns.
The defense in Philly is also an issue. The Philadelphia Eagles allowed 241.6 passing yards per. Dallas will throw. So will the WFT and the Giants. Expect higher odds than +600, which you may get before the end of training camp.
Eagles Offer Fair Odds: No
- New York Giants +350
The Giants finished 4-12 last season. NYG hired Joe Judge away from the New England Patriots. It’s difficult to see what Judge will do to turn things around. The offense should be better because Saquon Barkley is healthy and Kenny Golladay is an underrated wide receiver.
But how will Judge fix a defense that ranked 30th in points allowed per when giving up 28 each game? If the WFT’s offense struggles, Rivera will go conservative and lean on the defense. If Dallas’ defense struggles, Mike McCarthy will lean on the offense.
What will Judge lean on? Nobody knows, which is why +350 makes the Giants a massive underlay.
Giants Offer Fair Odds: No
