Let the title defense begin. This Wednesday, the Super Bowl XLVI champion New York Giants will play host to the Dallas Cowboys, ushering in the 2012 football season in style. Despite the banner raising though, neither team’s NFL odds leave particularly much to be desired.

Last January, for a second time in five years, the Giants ousted the New England Patriots under the game’s brightest spotlight. Unfortunately, even that hasn’t translated into proper respect on the NFL moneyline this fall. In 2012, New York has just 22/1 odds of winning the Super Bowl.
The mark sits even on the NFL futures with the Cowboys who failed to even make the postseason.
This year Eli Manning, now 31, will look to add yet one more Vince Lombardi to his collection, creeping one step closer to consideration among the league’e elite. Manning and the Giants have been beating the odds for the past half decade and there’s no reason to stop now.
In Dallas, however, not all is lost either. After missing out on the playoffs in each of the past two seasons, quarterback Tony Romo faces a crucial junction in his career. Starting the 2012 campaign off on a strong note, despite the betting line listing them as +4 underdogs, could go a long way in reversing their fortunes come playoff time.
