The Dallas Cowboys are seven-point home chalk over the New York Giants, according to the Las Vegas sports betting online spread. The Cowboys lost a receiver during the NFL betting offseason, but they gained a tight end. Actually, they regained a tight end. Cole Beasley will not wear blue, silver and white for the first time since 2011. He signed with the Buffalo Bills.

On the other hand, Witten went, to quote Dave Mustaine, from a rockstar to a desk fool. He was – and I guess still is – the tight end with the most consecutive games played and started. But he traded that, and perhaps his own soul, for a cozy ESPN analyst job. Where one of his fellow commentators was named Booger. Turns out it was one of those 10-minute retirements, though. The tight end is back on the Dallas roster. Which comes to show that nothing is Witten in stone. Not even the odds at the best online sportsbooks.

Betting NY Giants

The Giants also switched reception-eligible players. Odell Beckham Jr. bounced back from an injury-shortened 2018 season. However, the Giants traded him to the Cleveland Browns in exchange for safety Jabrill Peppers. Additionally, the Giants signed Golden ‘Little Man’ Tate from the Detroit Lions. Tate is more experienced and well behaved than ODJ, so that’s a plus, I guess? Also, the Giants need all the help they can get on defense. And in that sense a young hungry player like Peppers is welcome.

So the Cowboys have a tight end who used to be an analyst. Well, the Giants have a tight end who used to be a QB. Former Syracuse signal-caller Eric Dungey “has been working with the tight ends, training to play a position he has never played – he’s only been a quarterback in his career – at the urging of Giants coach Pat Shurmur and team brass in order to better his chances at earning a roster spot.” Thus reports North Jersey.com. Which presumably leaves the door open for rookie Daniel Jones to take over from Eli Manning. Next season. The giants went 5-11 SU last year. But they also went 8-7-1 against the Las Vegas sports betting online spread.

Betting Dallas Cowboys

The 2018 Cowboys’ receiving corps was more like receiving corpse. How to explain that Ezekiel Elliott, a running back, had more receptions than Beasley, Amari Cooper, or Michael Gallup. Dak Prescott having to turn to Zeke might account for Dallas 23rd-ranking 221.1 passing yards per game. Can Witten help improve the passing game? He did have 63 receptions and 560 yards in 2017. And those numbers are not too different from Cowboys receivers in 2018. Then again, Witten may be a bit rusty. Maybe the answer is Gallup. “I haven’t really followed him in these OTAs,” wide receivers coach Sanjay Lal said. “He’s been making really good decisions and improving all of those routes.” And of course Cooper will certainly benefit from his first full year with America’s team.

Forget the pass game, though. Elliot and the Dallas defense should suffice to cover the Las Vegas sports betting online point spread. I was as pissed as anybody when Ben McAdoo ended Manning’s starting streak. That was then, though, and this is now. And now, Brother Eli should not be prodded into stepping down. It’s his own decision, and the sooner he makes it, the better for the Giants.
