NEW YORK GIANTS (+3) over Dallas Cowboys
Big Blue has a chance to show that last season was no aberration in a prime-time spot at home Sunday night.
And I’m here to tell you that they will make the playoffs and start their season off right against the rival Cowboys.
A new offense for Dak Prescott won’t be too kind in Week 1, especially with ex-Jet buffoon Brian Schottenheimer.
The Giants get an improved roster from top to bottom with Darren Waller and the Antonio Pierce-esque acquisition of Isaiah Simmons.
Are the Giants’ stars aligning?
I’m a Cowboys fader and a Big Blue believer.
I’ll grab the points (it’s currently 3.5 at DraftKings), but I expect the Giants to win outright, 24-17.
WASHINGTON COMMANDERS (-7) over Arizona Cardinals
That team from Arizona will have its work cut out for itself all season long.
Expect quarterback Josh Dobbs, who has been in the building for two weeks, to be running for his life thanks to an intense Commanders pass rush.
They boasted the 10th-best defense last season, according to Aaron Schatz’s FTN DVOA rankings — without a hungry Chase Young, who’s now on a contract year.
Betting on the NFL?
The Commanders hit the opposing quarterbacks on a whopping 12 percent of snaps, the best rate in the NFL, while pressuring on a second-best 31.6 percent of pass plays.
Smash the Commanders at -7 before line movement pushes the game to 7.5.
