Public Loves Cowboys
There should be plenty of offense when the Cowboys and Packers square off Sunday night in Green Bay. Both teams won their first two games of the season, with Dallas winning a wild one over Philadelphia last Monday and Green Bay trouncing Detroit last Sunday. Packers’ quarterback Aaron Rodgers is off to an amazing start, passing for over 500 yards and four touchdowns in only two games. The Dallas defense will certainly have their hands full limiting big plays in the passing game.
The Packers need to get pressure on Tony Romo or else their secondary will be in for a long day. Not only does Green Bay have to worry about wide receiver Terrell Owens, but Jason Witten can be just as effective in the passing game out of his tight end position. Marion Barber III and rookie Felix Jones give the Cowboys a nice 1-2 punch in their backfield, too.
Oddsmakers from online sports book SBG Global have made the Cowboys 3-point favorite and the over/under total has been set at 51. Current public betting information shows that 72% of bettors favor Dallas to cover the 3-point spread.
These are the two best teams in the NFC, so this game could easily go either way. Both teams have outstanding offenses and even though neither showed it last week, the defenses aren’t shabby either. The game might start slow as the two teams try to figure each other out, but after that points might not be hard to come by. We like the home team getting points in this one and predict the Packers over Cowboys 28-24.
