Will Most Of America Bet On The Cowboys?
November 28, 2006- (New York, NY) -There was a great song back in the late 60's or early 70's by Three Dog Night called "Eli's Coming". In New York they may write a new one called "Eli's Fading", as the younger Manning is struggling big time.
This Sunday the dysfunctional Giants host the surging Cowboys and as bad as it seems for Tom Coughlin's troops, they do control their own destiny in the NFC East. Once again most of the nation will take their mouse, click on their favorite tab and visit their favorite online sportsbook www.sportsbook.com. Sportsbook offers wagering on all Sports and has some incredible bonuses for their highly regarded customers.
The NFL is a grueling 16 game regular season grind and the greater majority of teams go through peaks and valleys, no different than your average Sports bettors. In the Giants case they have been dealing with a cornucopia of injuries and while the defense has been the hardest hit, the loss of offensive tackle Luke Petiitgout has been difficult to deal with.
There are many who wonder whether the Giants can bounce back, especially with the six defensive starters - defensive ends Osi Umenyiora and Michael Strahan, linebackers Brandon Short and LaVar Arrington and cornerbacks Corey Webster and Sam Madison - all on the sidelines.
This is a great spot for bettors who love the underdog as the Giants are 4-1 in their past 5 against the Pokes and the only loss was by 3 points. The Cowboys have been reading the press clippings about how the analysts and fans are drooling over their recent play. New York is at the opposite end of the spectrum, with the media and fans vilifying them and their backs are against the wall.
There will be a sense of urgency in the air Sunday afternoon and a very ornery group dressed in blue. More importantly, there could be a serious shift in the weather in the Northeast, with cold blustery conditions and remember the Cowboys will have a new kicker in Martin Gramatica. This guy is strictly warm weather material and watch for the special team's battle.
The over/under opened at 45, but is dropping significantly!
