The Dallas Cowboys opened the season in East Rutherford, New Jersey on a rainy Sunday night, but that didn't dampen the hype for America's team. The Cowboys shut out the Giants at Met Life stadium and put up 40 points in their Week 1 win. So what did their huge season opening win do for the Cowboys' Super Bowl odds?

The Cowboys entered Sunday with +1300 odds to win the Super Bowl at FanDuel with the Chiefs (+700) Eagles (+800)
Bills (+900), Bengals (+1000) and 49ers (+1000) ahead of them. After Sunday's games, there was a shift among the teams in the top five with the Chiefs moving to +650, Eagles moving to +700, Niners moving to +850 and Cowboys moving to +1100.

Dallas dominated the night with its defense, forced three turnovers (two interceptions and a fumble) and recorded seven sacks on Daniel Jones, who is now is now 1-11 straight up in night games in his NFL career.

On the flip side, Dak Prescott continues to dominate the NFC East. He's now 25-10 against the spread when facing his own division.

Dak Prescott has dominated the NFC East.

He is 25-10 ATS vs. his own division — only behind Aaron Rodgers for best ATS vs. own division in @Bet_Labs ⤵️

So with the win, should bettors be buying the Cowboys?

Action Network writer Brandon Anderson isn't buying the hype quite yet:

Dallas opened on Sunday night a year ago, too. Remember how that one went? The Cowboys lost to Tampa Bay 19-3 in an ugly performance that, it turns out, didn't tell us a single thing about either team. Dallas went 12-4 the rest of the way and demolished the Bucs in the playoff rematch as Tampa finished 7-9 the rest of the way and backed into the playoffs.

Dallas looked great, but let's not draw too many conclusions about a game that got away quickly with two defense and special teams TDs in the first quarter.
