Football betting on Sunday has what is almost a must-win game for Green Bay as they host the Dallas Cowboys.
The Packers have fallen to 4-4 and are in danger of falling out of the football betting playoff picture. Dallas comes into the game after a huge NFL betting win last week against Philadelphia so they could be in a letdown spot.
Football betting favors the Cowboys by three-points in this game and the total is 47.5. Green Bay is playing well on offense but their defense has been a problem. Aaron Rodgers was the NFC Offense Player of the Month for October. He has been playing very well even though he has been sacked a league-high 37 times. He could be in trouble on Sunday against DeMarcus Ware and the Dallas front four.
The bigger question in this football betting matchup is whether or not Green Bay can stop Dallas. The Packers couldn’t stop Tampa Bay last week in their football betting loss and may have trouble against Tony Romo and the Cowboys. The Cowboys are 16-12 against the Packers all-time. You might think with these two teams that the games would be close but that has not been the case in football betting. Of the 28 football betting meetings between the two teams, 23 have been decided by double digits.
Dallas has a lot of positive NFL betting trends heading into this game. The Cowboys are 12-2 ATS in their last 14 games in November. The Cowboys are 9-4 ATS in their last 13 games as a favorite. The concern for those taking Dallas in football betting is that the Cowboys are 3-7 ATS in their last 10 road games.
Green Bay is normally a good team in football betting getting points. The Packers are 5-2 ATS in their last 7 games as an underdog. Green Bay has not played well at home of late though as they are 2-5 ATS in their last 7 home games. One positive for Green Bay in football betting is that the home team in this series is 7-1 ATS in the last 8 meetings.
Seven of the last ten Dallas games have gone over in football betting. The last four Green Bay games in November have gone over the NFL betting total. 23 of the last 33 Green Bay games have gone over. 12 of the last 17 Green Bay home games have gone over. In this series, four of the last five have gone over in NFL betting.
