Football Betting – Packers Heavily Favored over Cowboys

The Green Bay Packers are heavily favored at home on Sunday night in football betting against the Dallas Cowboys.

Do you think that NBC would like to have their flex option already?  The Cowboys are simply not a good team right now and this game sure isn’t as appealing in NFL football betting as it would have been last year.

Green Bay -8, total 45 at SBG
The Packers are laying over a touchdown at home against Dallas.  The Cowboys are 1-6 and off to their worst start since 1989. The Cowboys have some talent but they are poorly coached and they continually make mistakes.  Dallas can score points but they can’t stop anyone.  That makes this game an interesting matchup because Green Bay’s offense has gone cold in recent weeks.

Dallas Offense vs. Green Bay Defense
The Cowboys put up a lot of yards in two games with Jon Kitna throwing the ball but they have turned it over a lot.  That is a major problem against a Green Bay defense that is really playing well. The Packers shut out the Jets last week.  Dallas should score but if they continue to turn the ball over they won’t be in this game vs. Green Bay.

Green Bay Offense vs. Dallas Defense
The Cowboys defense has quit.  They are giving up yards and points in bunches.  Green Bay has struggled on offense in recent weeks but that should end on Sunday night.  Look for Aaron Rodgers to have a huge game against the rotten Dallas secondary.
