If you’re a Dallas Cowboys fan, you couldn’t feel better right now, and if you’re a New York Jets fan, well can I just say I’m sorry.
A small consolation is that BetSided NFL betting analyst Iain MacMillan is making sure to underreact to Week 1 in his “Road to 272” where he picks every game in the NFL season. He likes the Jets to cover against Dallas and thinks the line has moved too far.
That means he’s not only ignoring the Cowboys 40-0 win, but he’s found some interesting value on the Jets this week. If you want to bet with the NFL betting analyst, you can do it in the DraftKings Sportsbook with their great promo.

Betting analyst prediction for Jets in Week 2
There has been a lot of line movement in this matchup since the news of Aaron Rodgers’ torn achilles. The fact that Dallas looked like the best team in the NFL in Week 1 probably helped move it another point or two in their direction as well.
Now, the Cowboys are nearly 10 point favorites and that’s just too many for MacMillan.
“The Jets last season were a sneakily good team at times and it was largely due to their defense," MacMillan wrote. "They were a top-three defense in the NFL and they looked just as good on Monday night, completely shutting down Josh Allen and the Bills.”
MacMillan also thinks that the Cowboys may not be as dominant as their Week 1 performance looked. That’s not to say that they’ll lose in Week 2 to Zach Wilson, but that just means there is value on New York.
“Also, there's nothing I love more than underreacting to games, and not only is this an underreaction to the Rodgers news, but I'm also underreacting to the Cowboys first game against the Giants," MacMillan wrote. "Yes, it was a complete domination by Dallas, but the Cowboys aren't as good as the final score indicated. It was just a comedy of errors by the Giants so I would hesitate to back the Cowboys in Week 2 expecting a similar outcome”
