The Dallas Cowboys are favored at the best sportsbooks online on Sunday as they host the Green Bay Packers in an NFC Divisional Playoff game that can be seen on FOX. The Packers are coming off a win over the Giants in the Wild Card round while the Cowboys had a bye. These teams met earlier this season with Dallas winning on the road at Lambeau Field. Let’s look at the matchup and NFL Playoff picks.

NFL Odds at the Best Sports Betting Sites

Dallas -4.5, total 52

Green Bay at Dallas

The Packers feature an offense that has been virtually unstoppable in the last seven weeks with Aaron Rodgers playing at an MVP level. He threw for 362 yards and 4 TDs last week in the win over the Giants. He has thrown 19 TDs and no interceptions in the winning streak. The Packers could be without wide receiver Jordy Nelson who was injured in the win over the Giants.

Green Bay was 4-4 ATS on the road this season with six of the eight games going over the total. The Packers are scoring 27 points per game while giving up 24 per contest.

The Cowboys had last week off to rest so they come into this one ready and healthy. They are not, however, experienced as their top two offensive players, Dak Prescott and Ezekiel Elliott are rookies. Elliott had a big game the first time these teams met so Green Bay will be focused on making sure he doesn’t run wild on Sunday. “Dak and Zeke have been playing great all season,” Rodgers said, “They are tremendous players; they’re not playing like rookies. They’re both in the MVP conversation. We can’t let them run behind that big offensive line. We’ve got to start fast and make them as one-dimensional as possible.”

Dallas was 5-3 ATS at home this season with four games going over and four going under. The Cowboys are scoring 26 points per game while allowing 19 points per contest.
