2019 NFL Odds: Green Bay Packers (+3.5) vs.Dallas Cowboys (-3.5)
What to know about the Green Bay Packers (3-1)
The Packers got their mouth punched last week at home, as they suffered their first loss of the season in a 34-27 defeat at the hands of the Philadelphia Eagles. Aaron Rodgers put up 422 passing yards (34/53) with two touchdowns and an interception and led the team with 46 rushing yards.
Rodgers was connecting well with Davante Adams, who had 180 receiving yards on 10 catches. However, Adams wasn’t able to finish the game, as he exited with a toe injury. Adams’ status needs to be closely monitored especially by those looking to bet on Green Bay, as Adams is a huge part of the Packers’ offense that averages 251.5 passing yards per game.Rodgers is also 6-2 SU in his career as a starter against the Cowboys.
What to know about the Dallas Cowboys (3-1)
Like the Packers, the Cowboys suffered their first loss of the season in Week 4, as they were taken down by the New Orleans Saints in Superdome, 12-10. The defense showed up, but the offense did not for the Cowboys, who was held down to their fewest point output in a game this season. Prior to that, the Cowboys were averaging 32.3 points per game.
Did the Saints just expose the Cowboys’ attack? Dak Prescott threw for 223 yards (22/33) but didn’t have a touchdown pass and was picked. Zeke Elliott had a touchdown, but averaged just 1.9 yards per carry (35 rushing yards on 18 rushing attempts). Still, Dallas is potent on offense with Elliott and Amari Cooper complementing Prescott.
Dallas’ defense also gives the team a chance to keep within striking distance at any point of the game. The Cowboys are giving up just 14.0 points per game and are second in opponents’ third-down conversion percentage, which plays well with Green Bay’s lackadaisical 31.91 third-down percentage.
Fantasy Football spin
- Geronimo Allison, Marquez-Scantling should get increased workload in the passing attack for the Packers if Davante Adams ends up sitting out Week 5’s assignment in Arlington.
- It’s not always a good idea to start a defense against Aaron Rodgers and the Packers, but Dallas is making a strong case with their performance so far this season. The Cowboys’ D, which is third in the league in opponents’ red-zone touchdown percentage, is only rostered in 44.9 percent of ESPN leagues.
