The anti-climactic contract expansion of conducting Ezekiel Elliott finally arrived signing their star morning. All seems to be well known for America’s Team heading to the 2019 regular time and oddsmakers have retained their traces sharp for its Cowboys next training camp.
The Cowboys opened as 7-point favorites vs the New York Giants for Week 1 and also while the line climbed as large as -8 at a sportsbooks, the spread never really dropped despite Cowboys owner Jerry Jones and Zeke heading through a public negotiation and threats of a holdout. As of this writing, the Cowboys have been -7.5-point favorites enclosing the Giants.
In an alternate universe where the Cowboys chose not to provide Ezekiel Elliott a new contract and he decided to hold out, the Week 1 lineup versus the Giants would likely have dropped to -4 or less as it’s a steep drop away from Zeke to rookie backup, Tony Pollard.
Elliott has to miss a game because of injury in his brief three-year livelihood but he did need to miss six matches in 2017 because of suspension and the Cowboys’ offense suffered because of this.
While the lineup motion for Week 1 didn’t change much, oddsmakers also did not change the Cowboys’ chances at all to win the Super Bowl. Dallas was +2200 to acquire the Super Bowl at August 30th and after signing Ezekiel Elliott into his contract extension, the Cowboys remained to acquire the Game.
In terms of the NFC East, a small bit of movement happened with Elliott’s signing’s statement since the Cowboys’ price shifted to +135 from +140 at August 30th. They remain behind the Philadelphia Eagles to win the division, that are at EVEN odds.
