NFL Betting Lines: Cowboys vs Packers Week 9 Odds

November 6th, 2010 by

cowboys vs packersMany football fans had this game circled on their calendars in the preseason as they anticipated a colossal clash of the NFC titans in this Week 9 NFL betting odds matchup. Heading into the 2010 season these were the two favorite teams from the NFC to reach the Super Bowl.

But these teams have bombed so far this season (the Pack to a much lesser extent) and the only way the Packers or Cowboys will be at the Super Bowl is if they buy a ticket. Green Bay has struggled to a respectable 5-3 record and leads the hugely disappointing NFC North. But anyone who’s seen this banged up team play knows it’s not a legit post season contender.

The Cowboys, on the other hand, have brought new definition to the term ‘disappointment’. In fact, it’s hard to remember a team in the NFL performing worse than the Cowboys in relation to preseason expectations.

Kickoff for this Sunday night matchup is set for 8:30 Eastern Time and SBG Global Sportsbook opened with the Packers as a 8-point favorite with an over/under total at 45.5.

Dallas (1-6) may not be the worst team in football (1-6 Carolina takes that title, despite the Bills having a slightly worse 0-7 record) but its close. There was a small sliver of hope that this team might rebound from the awful start to the season and at least crawl back to .500.

But when their bitter NFC East rival New York Giants broke Romo’s collar bone the 2010 NFL gambling season when down the toilet for this team.
John Kitna now helms the Cowboy offense and you’ve got to give the guy credit for leading the league in passing yards last week (379 yards) but he also threw 4 INTs and the Cowboys lost yet again.

Kitna had better pack his track shoes because the Packers pass rush, led by NFL sack leader Clay Matthews (10.), should destroy the Cowboy’s shaking O-line.

Green Bay and Dallas are both averaging 22.0 points per game but the Packers have the obvious advantage with QB Aaron Rogers (2,011 yards, 12 TDs, 9 INTs) twice the QB that backup Kitna is.

Green Bay is better on both sides of the football and the question isn’t whether the Packers will win this sports betting matchup but rather by how much.
