Public Bettors Take Giants
There has been zero movement this week in the New York Giants, Dallas Cowboys point spread. Oddsmakers at online sports book Bodog opened betting on this game with the Cowboys listed as -7.5 point favorites over the visiting Giants. And with a little over 6 hours until game time, that is where the betting line remains.
The over/under odds are showing slight movement but nothing that would give any indication that this is a highly anticipated NFL playoff game. Since opening at 48 total points earlier in the week, the over/under is headed down just a tad according to Bodog oddsmakers who have it currently listed at 46.5 total points.
With just over 78,000 point spread bets being tabulated, our current NFL public betting information shows the betting public is giving the nod to the Giants to cover the 7.5 point spread against the host Cowboys. 69% of point spread bettors in this game are taking the New York Giants +7.5
The Dallas Cowboys have 9 point spread wins in 2007, the Giants have 11. 10 games the Cowboys have played in went over the total in 2007, 8 games went over for New York. The Cowboys are averaging 28.4 points per game this season while the Giants are only averaging 23.4.
