NFL betting odds at the sportsbook had the Dallas Cowboys losing their home opener on Sunday against the New York Giants in a game that set an NFL attendance record.
NFL lines had the Cowboys favored but they lost to New York before a regular season record crowd of 105,121 on Sunday night in the new Cowboys Stadium.
NFL betting odds had the game breaking the previous attendance record that was set in 2005 when 103,467 watched Arizona play San Francisco in Mexico City. The reason that Dallas was able to break the record at Cowboys Stadium was that 30,000 were able to get into the stadium in standing room only areas. NFL betting odds show that Cowboys Stadium only seats 75,000 so the standing room areas had the other 30,000.
The NFL betting odds record for a game in the U.S. in the NFL was set in 1980 when the Rams and Steelers played in the Super Bowl. That record as NFL lines indicate has now been broken by Cowboys Stadium. The record for any NFL betting odds game was set in a preseason contest in Mexico City back in 1994 when the Cowboys and Houston Oilers played in front of 112,376.
The NFL betting odds result was definitely not what the Cowboys wanted. The game was exciting and the stadium and the crowd were great but the Cowboys lost in NFL betting odds. Lawrence Tynes hit a 37-yard field goal as time expired to give the New York Giants the 33-31 victory in NFL betting odds. Dallas had gone ahead 31-30 with just over three minutes left but Eli Manning led the Giants into position for the game winning field goal. Tynes actually had the make the kick twice as Dallas head coach Wade Phillips called a time out a split second before the first kick, in an attempt to throw off Tynes’ concentration.
NFL betting odds will definitely go down in history for this game since it was the first regular season NFL lines game at the Cowboys new home which cost $1.15 billion to construct. The Cowboys did not start their home slate with a win though as they were upset in NFL betting odds at the online sportsbook by the Giants. New York not only covered the NFL lines at the sportsbook, they won the game outright in NFL betting odds, providing a winner for those that took New York on the money line.
