BetOnline and Bovada accept US bettors and mobile betting as well. For more serious bettors, we recommend BetOnline because they post their lines earlier, giving us a shot at early value we can’t get at Bovada. If you’re looking for live betting, Bovada is a better choice, offering props on nearly every possession of NFL games. Live bets can be made from any iPhone, Android, and other internet-enabled mobile devices.

Dallas Cowboys

The Dallas Cowboys (8-8 last year) missed out on the playoffs last season due to poor mistakes late in games. Dallas was only 5-10-1 against the spread in 2011-12, which included a 1-1 ATS record against the Giants in their two match-ups last season.

Last year the Cowboys defense ranked 14th in total yards allowed (322.8 YPG). Dallas ranked 7th at stopping the rush (93.2 RYPG) and 23rd at stopping the pass (229.6 PYPG). This year, the secondary should be improved and the Cowboys defense looks to take a step forward.

Dallas moved up to draft CB Morris Claiborne while also drafting CB Brandon Carr. The offense ranked 11th in total yards (247.1) in 2011-12 and could see improvements in their running game as well. If TE Jason Witten doesn’t play in this week 1 game, the Cowboys could have a tougher time opening up other parts of their offense.

New York Giants

The NY Giants won the NFC East with a 9-7 record (8-7-1 ATS) last season and managed to win the Superbowl a second time under QB Eli Manning. The G-Men are a team that like to coast under the radar during the regular season and it seems to work for them based on their success in recent years.

New York made several big changes to the team this year. The Giants no longer have RB Brandon Jacobs or WR Mario Manningham, but in this year’s NFL draft the Giants picked up RB Doug Wilson and WR Rueben Randle in the 1st and 2nd rounds respectively.

Last year the NY Giants ranked 29th at stopping the pass (240.1 PYPG), but they made up for it with the 5th ranked passing offense (277.1 PYPG). If the secondary and running game improves for NYG this season they could be Superbowl contenders yet again.

Point Spread

I thought losing TE Jason Witten would have moved the point spread more than a ½ point. Dallas is going to struggle without Witten, and with the Cowboys vs. Giants point spread currently sitting at -3.5 (-115) at BetOnline.com, I’m backing the G-Men at home.

Money Line

The New York Giants beat the Cowboys 31-14 at home last year, and they should win again in week 1. The Giants moneyline is currently -210, and while betting on the NYG straight up (SU) doesn’t present much value I will be betting the NYG money line (ML) on my NFL parlays this week.

Over/Under

The current Cowboys vs. Giants over/under is 45 points. I prefer the over here, but even if it goes up to o46 (-110) I recommend this bet. Last year Dallas and New York played twice, with final scores of 31-14 (45) and 37-34 (71). Mobile Sports Betting is picking the over in this week 1, Wednesday night matchup.
