Dallas Cowboys vs Seattle Seahawks Pick, Prediction, and Odds
Week one of the 2012 NFL season is officially in the books, and things were very interesting to say the least. While some teams lived up to their hype and other teams failed to impress, it's time to look at some of the week 2 NFL betting match-up's. We'll start here with one that instantly caught my attention between the Dallas Cowboys and the Seattle Seahawks. The Cowboys are on the road for the second game in the row, while the Seahawks are returning from a tough game on the road against the Arizona Cardinals in which they lost when they could not convert on a fourth and goal to win the game. The Cowboys on the other hand, started off with a huge road victory against their divisional rivals in the New York Giants.

The Cowboys have high hopes this season, but their offensive line is a major concern. They handled things just well last week, and it was in large part thanks to the very impressive play of quarterback Tony Romo, as well as the breakout play from Kevin Ogletree and strong night's from the other receivers on the Boys' as well. DeMarco Murray has been a very bright spot for this team, and many people were curious how he'd respond after he got back from his season ending injury last year. He put up 130 yards on a tough Giants defense to start it off, so Murray could be in for a big season when all is said and done.
The Seahawks on the other hand are starting a rookie quarterback in Russell Wilson who was dazzling in the preseason. His life was a bit tougher to start out the year, but he definitely didn't struggle nearly as much as many of the other rookie quarterbacks did. Wilson will have to deal with his bumps in the road, but he has a good running game in Marshawn Lynch that should help out quite a bit. The Seahawks are hoping to surprise quite a few people this year and make a push on a potential playoff spot in the NFC, but they'll be in for a tough run at the division with the 49ers in there.
This is a late game on Sunday, and it will kick off at 4:05pm EST.

The Cowboys look to be one of the powerhouses of the NFC right now in my opinion. Obviously one game doesn't prove everything, but beating the defending Super Bowl champions on the road is very impressive, and they showed the type of poise that many people were curious if they had. I do think that the Seahawks are going to be a good team this year, but I think that the Cowboys get the best of them thanks to an all-around strong offensive showing in the passing and rushing game. Cowboys win it by ten on the road.
Prediction: Dallas Cowboys- 31 Seattle Seahawks- 21
I do like the fact that the Cowboys are getting such few points, but playing on the road is always tough. Regardless, they just went into New York and knocked off the Giants, so I definitely feel that they can go into Seattle and get the job done against the Seahawks as well. I'm rolling with the Cowboys and laying the -3 points as well.
Pick: Dallas Cowboys -3
