Cowboys vs. Packers Prediction
Will the Packers cover as a home favorite today against the red-hot Cowboys when the teams clash at 4:25PM ET?
According to oddsmakers from online sports book BetDSI, the Packers are now 4.5-point home favorites versus the Cowboys after they opened as a 4-point favorite. As for the total, the number hit the board at 46.5 but has been bet up a full point to 47.5.
The Cowboys are 4-0 against the spread in their last four games overall and are 4-0 against the number in their last four games played in Week 6. They're also 13-6 at the betting window in their last 19 road games but are winless at 0-5-1 against the spread in their last six games playing against a team that owns a winning record.
As for the Packers, they're 4-1-1 against the spread in their last six games overall, are 5-1 against the number in their last six games following an ATS loss, and are 3-1-1 ATS in their last five games versus teams from the NFC. They're also 16-5-1 against the number in their last 22 games played in the month of October.
OUR PREDICTION: The Cowboys have a potent running game thanks to Ezekiel Elliott but the Packers lead the league in run defense, allowing just 42.8 yards per game on the ground. If Dallas can't move the ball on the ground, that puts more pressure on rookie quarterback Dak Prescott to make plays with his arm. As good as he has been this season, perhaps this is the opponent that will make him play like a rookie fourth-rounder in just his sixth NFL start. The Cowboys are 1-4 against the spread in their last five games versus the Packers and are 2-5 ATS in their last seven trips in Green Bay.
