Harvey Levin ... is no Chris Berman ... but he does have a 50% chance of picking an NFL winner every week ... and starting today, TMZ is going to test out his prescientness on one key matchup.
And since the season kicks off tonight, H.L. is weighing in on the New York Giants vs. The Dallas Cowboys.

Harvey on DeMarco Murray -- "I love his name."
Harvey's Pick -- "I pick the New York Giants .... because it's on their home turf ... which is always an advantage."
