Dallas NFL gambling fans should be happy; the Cowboys have won the NFC East division and secured a playoff berth – complete with home field advantage and first round bye – for the first time since the 2014 season. And they did it earlier than expected, too. The way Dak Prescott, Ezekiel Elliott, and company have been playing this season, there was no doubt in the minds of people who bet on football games that the Cowboys were destined for great things this year. However, this team is not just talented but also very lucky. This time, it was the New York Giants’ 24-19 loss to the already-eliminated-from-postseason-contention Philadelphia Eagles on Thursday that put Dallas over the rainbow.
