post-week 1 nfc east odds cowboys
Kim Klement-USA TODAY Sports

Despite starting off the season with a loss, the Cowboys still own the highest odds to win the NFC East this year.

The Dallas Cowboys entered their season-opening matchup with the Buccaneers last Thursday with the highest odds to win the NFC East.

Week 1 has now come and gone for each of the four squads, and despite the Eagles being the only team to emerge victorious, Dallas remains on top at FanDuel Sportsbook.

Cowboys +135: Why I like this play

The Cowboys still employ the best roster in the division along with the best quarterback. As far as the signal-caller position is concerned, it’s not even close to the rest of the NFC East.

Dak Prescott’s superstar capabilities make this Dallas squad an absolute playoff contender. During the Week 1 loss, Prescott threw for three touchdowns and over 400 yards and wasn’t fully healthy. The Cowboys were also the better team last Thursday night — they should be fine moving forward.

Washington +280: Why I don’t like this play

Listen, this defense has the potential to be incredible and could be one of the top units in the NFL this year.

But the quarterback position is the most important one on the field. I wasn’t confident in Washington’s quarterback situation initially and now I’m even less confident. Ryan Fitzpatrick suffered a hip injury Sunday and is “set to miss extended time,” per NFL Network’s Ian Rapoport.

The Football Team will move forward with Taylor Heinicke.

Eagles +350: Why I don’t like this play

The Eagles, in the first game of a new era with quarterback Jalen Hurts and head coach Nick Sirianni, looked great in their Week 1 matchup. Hurts tossed three touchdowns in what was a 32-6 victory over the Falcons.

However, the opponent was Atlanta, one of the worst teams in the league last year. Let’s give it some time before we actually start considering Philly as a legitimate playoff contender.

Giants +500: Why I don’t like this play

Simply speaking, the Giants looked bad on Sunday. There isn’t much more to say other than that.

Broncos veteran quarterback Teddy Bridgewater picked apart the Giants secondary for much of the game and Big Blue’s offense couldn’t execute.

Daniel Jones‘ turnover issue also came to light once again in the midst of the 27-13 loss — will the third-year signal-caller ever fix his fumbling problem?
