2012 Week 1 – 5* NFL Pick: GIANTS -4

Arriving 5-1 Against the Spread (‘ATS’) in their last six games with the Cowboys, public opinion has swayed to the Giants. 3-1 ATS at home in their last four matchups, the Giants arrive 4-1 Straight Up (‘SU’) at Home on opening day under Coughlin. Interestingly, the Giants have been held under 30 points only once at Home over the last four years. Look for Dallas, who closed 2010 outscored by 5 points per game on only 19 points per game to struggle with a healthy, motivated Giants defense that closed 2011 allowing 20 points only once in its last six games (including playoffs); without Robinson and Witten, Dallas wil have few silver bullets to save them from an opening night defeat.
