At the onset of the season, the Dallas Cowboys got plenty of Pro Football Betting future market action. As America’s team, there is nothing new about Dallas drawing dollars and hype. Yet, for much of the 2023 campaign, the Cowboys appeared to be a justified public betting favorite. But the one consistency in owner Jerry Jones’ world is inconsistency. Since coach Jimmy Johnson departed after winning his second Super Bowl in January 1994, the Cowboys have never been a sure thing. On Sunday, they host the upstart Green Bay Packers.

In a win-or-else scenario against the rival Bears, Jordan Love threw two touchdown passes, and the host Green Bay Packers jumped into the NFC Playoffs. In sum, Love went over 300 yards with his 26th completion of the game with 3:08 to play. Subsequently, running back Aaron Jones clicked over 100 yards rushing for the third consecutive game on the game-sealing possession. He finished with 111 yards on 22 carries.
Late on, Green Bay won its final three games straight up to gain the playoffs with two payouts. The much-maligned Packer defense tightened up to save the season. And then Love made fans forget about the Aaron Rodgers era with a sterling performance in the second half of the season. Love finished the season strong and earned the credibility of being the new starter. To illuminate, Love threw for 4159 yards and a 32/11 TD/INT ratio with a 96.1 QBR.
