NFL football gambling expectations are again on the rise for the Green Bay Packers as they have reclaimed betting on NFL football momentum and first place in the NFC North.
NBC Sunday Night Football will feature the Green Bay Packers hosting the Dallas Cowboys with kickoff set for 8:30 PM Eastern time. Green Bay opened as an 8 point home favorite at Sports-Gambling with an over/under of 45.
Green Bay has a NFL betting record of 5-3 straight up and 4-4 against the spread with 6 of their games going under the total. The Pack is coming off a 9-0 road win and payout at the New York Jets and is in first place in the NFC North. Green Bay ranks 16th in the NFL for overall defense while ranking 16th for offense.
Aaron Rodgers has 2011 yards passing although he has not been nearly as sharp as last year. The loss of running back Ryan Grant to a season ending injury is a big reason for the drop in offensive production.
Dallas has gone from a Super Bowl favorite to a fraud that is limping into Lambeau Field with a NFL gambling record of a horrific 1-6 both straight up and against the spread. The Cowboys are coming off a humiliating 35-17 home loss to an inconsistent Jacksonville team and have lost 4 games in a row.
Quarterback Tony Romo is out until at least December and backup Jon Kitna is no answer. The defense, once considered strength, ranks 27th for points allowed.
The Cowboys have lost their last 5 consecutive games against the spread in NFC action. The Packers have covered 7 of their last 9 games that follow a payout. The Packers have covered 11 of their last 16 games overall. Dallas has gone under the total in 5 of their last 6 road games.
Green Bay has gone over the total in 25 of their last 37 games against the NFC. The host has covered 8 of the last 9 NFL football gambling matchups in this series while the favorite has paid out in 7 of the last 9 matchups between these two teams.
