'Boys vs. Packers Pick
The Dallas Cowboys and Green Bay Packers have the chance to renew their rivalry when the two teams square off at Lambeau Field at 4:15PM ET on Sunday.
The Cowboys earned a huge road win last Sunday when they beat the Eagles 20-16 as a 3-point underdog in Week 9. The combined score fell under the posted total of 50 points as Tony Romo threw for 307 yards with a touchdown and an interception for Dallas. Miles Austin also hauled in one pass for 49 yards and a touchdown in the win.
The Buccaneers shocked the Packers on the road last week, 38-28. Green Bay failed to cover as a 9.5-point favorite in Week 9, while the combined score went over the posted total of 43. Aaron Rodgers threw for 286 yards with two touchdowns and three interceptions for Green Bay, while Ryan Grant rushed for 96 yards and a touchdown on 21 carries.
Oddsmakers from online sports book SBGGLOBAL.com have made the Cowboys 3-point favorites over the Packers in Week 10. The over/under total for this game has been set at 47.5 points.
The Packers are going to have a tough time protecting Rodgers from the Cowboys’ relentless pass rush. DeMarcus Ware should have a field day against a bruised and battered Green Bay offensive line, which has struggled to keep Rodgers on his feet all season.
We love Dallas –3 in this matchup. The Cowboys are 8-2 against the spread in their last 10 games when playing Green Bay and 4-2 against the number in their last six games. We also recommend taking the over, which has hit in 11 of Dallas’s last 13 games when playing the Packers.
Green Bay’s defense struggled last week and could have more issues this week against a Cowboys team that is averaging over 27 points per game.
