The 2012 NFL Season Kicks Off Today, September 5th, 2012, With the Super Bowl Champs New York Giants Facing Americas Team the Dallas Cowboys; Experts Weigh in With Their Handicapping Predictions for Week 1 of Football Action

LAS VEGAS, NV--(Marketwire - Sep 5, 2012) - The first week of the NFL football season is of the utmost importance to sports bettors in Las Vegas, Nevada who are looking to start off the season with a profit. That's where famous NFL Picks experts from come in delivering their predictions and picks for those looking to enjoy the game while profiting the first week of the season.

The game kicks off Wednesday, September 5th, 2012, at MetLife Stadium at 8:30 PM eastern time on NBC Sports Network. The current NFL Spread has the Giants favored by 4 points with a forecast of rain likely with temperatures to be in the mid 70's by the time kickoff happens.

Last year's Super Bowl champs the New York Giants were 9-7 in the regular season while the Dallas Cowboys were a .500 team finishing the 2011-2012 season at 8-8. The last two times these NFC teams faced off the Giants won both meetings. The most recent being a 31-14 victory on New Year's Day in 2012 and a December 11th, 2011, meeting where the Giants beat out the Cowboys 37-34. The overall series record however has the Cowboys with a 56-42-2 edge.

Key Matchups and players to watch out for that experts like John Mack are advising to pay attention to are Ahmad Bradshaw and running back David Wilson. With Jay Ratliff injured and Dallas' 3-4 defense will be something that the tapes won't have shown the Giants during their research and will be something interesting for bettors in Vegas to pay attention to since it may provide some value for second half wagers.

Eli Manning is starting his 120th game in a row and is now the leader in the NFL for consecutive starts, something his 1 Super Bowl ring holding brother may be a tad bit jealous of these days as he approaches Peytons record of 208 consecutive all time starts which pits him at number 2 on the all time list.

Other things that the handicapping experts advise fans to pay attention to are to watch Cowboys quarterback Tony Romo closely as he was sacked 6 times in the last matchup and the newly adjusted offensive line may just make a difference in this game. Center Phil Costa is hobbled by a back injury while Defensive Ends Justin Tuck, Osi Umenyiora and Jason P-P are looking better than ever according to training camp and pre-season footage studied by John Mack.

Predictions for this game are all over the map but expect it to be a great first game with the Giants Cowboys pick not being released till a few hours before kickoff. Stay tuned for other NFL predictions for week 1 for matchups such as the Indianapolis Colts vs. Chicago Bears, New England Patriots vs. Tennessee Titans, Pittsburgh Steelers vs. Denver Broncos, and the dual Monday Night Football Matchups featuring the Baltimore Ravens vs. the Cincinnati Bengals and the San Diego Chargers vs. the Oakland Raiders.
