  • Cowboys 14-1 Giants 80-1..how can this be?

    Took the Giants @ 50-1 with a 20 stake at season start and these two were

    GB 7-1
    NO 10-1

    Giants are now 80-1 .... and the Cowboys 14-1 over here in the UK. How on earth do the bookies come up with such a huge gap in odds between 2 pretty equal teams ???

        Sweeping a division rival that is playing light years better than you is a GIGANTIC task. That would be my guess for the huge gap in odds.

Cowboys are 14-1 just because there in the playoffs in the eyes of the oddsmakers.There odds probably wont get much better. Whats the Packers 1-1

                because we are 3-7 vs winning teams in the last 2 years.

                Because we have been outscored by an average of 10 points vs winning teams in the last 2 years.

                Because we average over 3 turnovers per game vs winning teams in the last 2 years.

                Because since the NFL decided to change the way schedules are done. Putting Conference games late in the season, we have been a non factor.

                Because the Cowboys have coaches that seem to get the most out of his players late in the year. TC's win loss record with the Giants late in the season is horrendous.

                There ya go...

                    Most of those are accurate except for...

                    "Because the Cowboys have coaches that seem to get the most out of his players late in the year."

                    Their coaches don't have history of that. In fact, they don't a history of anything with this being their first year. Actually, the Cowboys have recent history of melting down at the worst possible moments

                      Light years better? Cowboys have scraped by a lot of teams this year. We may be playing worse but Cowboys are really nothing special.

                      NFCE really is a steaming pile of **** this year.

                        Have you watched the last two Giants games? 80-1 is kind. Cowboys are way too high. They are not a good team.

                              The bookies are the experts & their smart money predictions make the odds.

                              They are hardly ever wrong with the exception being the 2007 year when they had the Giants 40-1 vs Pats 4-1. Can't pick um all right can ya. Doubt that will ever happen again in my lifetime anyway. Born 1941 -
