Dallas Cowboys vs. New York Giants Week 1 Odds

The NFL gives fans a juicy Sunday night matchup to open the season by pitting the Cowboys against the Giants in a divisional showdown. Dallas is a 2.5-point favorite and is between -150 to -135 on the moneyline in Week 1, according to opening lines on the top sports betting apps. New York’s moneyline odds range from +115 to +126

Here are the latest and best betting lines for this opening-week primetime contest:

Cowboys’ Odds to Win Super Bowl (+1400 to +1600)

For as valuable and popular as the Cowboys are, you’d expect them to house a few more Lombardi Trophies in their collection. However, the franchise hasn’t brought home the silverware in the last 27 seasons. For perspective, Dak Prescott was two years old the last time Dallas won the Super Bowl.

Dallas did a good job retaining many of its core players in the offseason, including Tony Pollard and Leighton Vander Esch. And although they did lose Dalton Schultz, they made sure to draft a successor in Luke Schoonmaker, who’s a better and more athletic version of Schultz.

Letting go of Ezekiel Elliott may actually be a blessing in disguise. Elliott has been on a steady decline since his All-Pro rookie season and rushed for career-lows in yards per game (58.4) and yards per attempt (3.8) in 2022.

The release leaves Pollard, who’s recovering from a broken fibula that he suffered in last year’s NFC divisional-round game, as the team’s unquestioned No. 1 running back, which many Cowboys fans had wanted for a while.

The two biggest additions were trades for Stephon Gilmore and Brandin Cooks. Gilmore, a five-time Pro Bowler, will share the field opposite Trevon Diggs to form one of the best cornerback duos in the NFL. Meanwhile, Cooks bolsters a once-top-heavy receiving corps led by CeeDee Lamb.

Given all of the above, it makes sense why oddsmakers have tagged Dallas with the seventh-shortest odds to win Super Bowl LVIII. The pieces are there to win it all.

Odds to Win NFC (+600 to +650)

Dallas trails only the Philadelphia Eagles and the 49ers on the NFC Championship odds boards. If the Cowboys want to represent the NFC in the Super Bowl, they’ll have to make it to the conference championship game. The problem is that this franchise hasn’t made it back there since its championship run in 1995.

Fortunately for them, there’s not much standing in their way this season. With Tom Brady retiring and Aaron Rodgers taking flight in New York, the NFC has become fairly weak.

Dallas’ only real competition in the conference are the Eagles and Niners. The Cowboys beat Philadelphia in Week 16 and stayed competitive with San Francisco in their playoff game. Winning the division title to earn home-field advantage may be the key to claiming the NFC crown.

Odds to Win NFC East (+165 to +175)

The Cowboys failed to defend their title as the 2021 NFC East winner after falling two wins shy of Philadelphia. In their defense, no team in the NFC East has won back-to-back division titles since the Eagles did it in 2003 and 2004.

Beating teams outside of your division is crucial to winning a division title, but the most important factor is your performance in divisional matchups. And historically, Dallas has done very well for themselves.
The Cowboys went 4-2 against NFC East opponents last season. They’ve also won 11 of their last 12 meetings (4-0 over the last two seasons) against the New York Giants. Against the Washington Commanders, Dallas has won three of the last four contests.

And it may come down to the two meetings with the Eagles that’ll decide who represents the division in 2023.
