The Dallas Cowboys have struggled mightily on the defensive end this season

The Dallas Cowboys have struggled mightily on the defensive end this season

Green Bay picked up a 22-21 come-from-behind victory over the Atlanta Falcons as 3.5-point home favorites last Sunday, while going UNDER the betting total of 47.  The Packers are currently third in the NFC North division—trailing the Chicago Bears and Detroit Lions.  Including this week’s game, the last seven meetings in this series have been either a late-afternoon title or a prime-time matchup, which can’t be ignored when making your NFL betting picks.  Green Bay is 8-2 SU and 6-4 ATS in December the last two-plus seasons.

The Packers are fifth in the league in averaging 394.5 yards per game, while their 5,128 yards of offense this season are the second most through 13 games in franchise history, which is important to consider when looking over the pro football odds.  Green Bay’s five 180-yard rushing games this season are the most for the franchise since it posted eight in 2003, while it ranks sixth in the NFL in averaging 4.55 yards per carry.  The team is a dynamite 19-9 in indoor games during the Mike McCarthy era.

Dallas had its two-game winning streak snapped in suffering a 45-28 defeat to the Chicago Bears as 1.5-point road underdogs on Monday Night Football, while going OVER the betting total for a fourth consecutive contest.  The Cowboys are having all kinds of trouble on the defensive end—allowing a league-worst 441.9 yards per game.  The unit allowed Chicago to score on its first eight possessions last time out and has allowed all opponents to convert 42.9 percent on third down.  Dallas is 1-3 SUATS versus NFC North foes the last two-plus seasons, with the OVER going 3-1 in that situation.

The Cowboys have won their last nine home games against the Packers, but this will be the first time that the two franchises play at AT&T Stadium.  Dallas will need to pressure Green Bay signal-caller Matt Flynn, but the team is tied for the fourth-fewest sacks in the NFL with 27.

Sports bettors will likely back the Packers due to their 15-7 ATS mark versus teams with a winning record.
