Sunday Night Football: Cowboys vs Packers Betting Predictions

November 7th, 2010 by

cowboys vs packersMathematically the 1-6 Dallas Cowboys could still finish with a 10-6 record, win the bruising NFC East, and get a first round bye in the NFL gambling playoff action. But with just a single victory through the first 2 months of the season there’s a better chance of George W Bush inviting Kanye West to his house for Thanksgiving.

And Lambeau Field is not a very profitable place to go looking for your second win of the season if you’re the struggling Cowboys. Green Bay is freezing this time of year, especially for a night game, and the Packers are 3-1 at home this year.

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.

The truth is, there really isn’t any good place for this very bad Dallas team to go looking for a win outside of Carolina.

The Cowboys talent is loaded with talent but it’s been hit with key injures (QB Tony Romo) and for whatever reason this team is just not performing. It’s also suffered from plenty of bad luck (a few last second losses resulting from stupid penalties) and the stats paint a different picture than the record.

But no one ever won a Super Bowl based on statistics and the only stats that matters in the NFL betting odds competition is wins and losses. And that is not a favorable stat for the ’10 Cowboys.

The only chance Dallas has of winning this game is establishing the run game with RB Felix Jones (just 286 yards in 7 games) and hoping that backup QB turned starter, John Kitna, somehow magically transforms into Joe Montana. He threw 4 INTs last week and looked rusty.

The Packers offense is averaging just 22.0 ppg (same as the Cowboys) but their defense has been solid (4th in the NFL, 17.0 ppg) and at home QB Aaron Rogers should have a decent game the Packers ball hawking secondary (12 INTs) should make life miserable for Kitna and ensure a Green Bay sports betting win.
