The bettor’s edge
Gambling: No safe bets in the NFL
Wednesday night’s opening game would provide an ideal lesson if a course was taught on the difficulties of gambling. The New York Giants, coming off a tremendous late-season run to the Super Bowl title, host Dallas. If this game were on Sunday along with every other game, I’d stay away. Neither team could be trusted during the 2011 regular season, particularly the Cowboys. But it’s the only game on the board – an intriguing matchup of divisional (NFC East) rivals with championship aspirations.
