Faves Cashing Between Packers-Cowboys

Green Bay Packers QB Aaron Rodgers

Just when they looked down and out, the Dallas Cowboys pulled out a huge 19-16 victory over the Washington Redskins in Monday Night Football last week to pull within one game of the NFC East division lead. Considering the ‘Skins, Eagles and Giants are all tied at 5-7 that’s nothing to write home about, but a win over the suddenly perplexing Green Bay Packers in Week 14 would go a long way in keeping their playoff hopes alive.

Shark Bites
  • The Cowboys are 4-11 SU and ATS in their last 15 games against the NFC North division.
  • The Packers are 13-2 SU in their last 15 games at home.
  • The total has gone UNDER in seven of the Packers' last nine games.

The Packers needed a last second Aaron Rodgers Hail Mary that’s been dubbed the “Miracle in Motown” to top the Detroit Lions and improve to 8-4 on the season. The Pack have been anything but consistent lately, however, and it’s hard to tell what you’re going to get out of this club going forward.

It’s a big sample size, but the favored team is 17-3 SU and 15-5 ATS in the last 20 meetings between the Cowboys and Packers. Most sportsbooks opened the Pack as 7.5-point favorites for the tilt.
