Green Bay at Dallas Game Preview
Green Bay ended the regular season on a roll with a straight-up six-game winning streak while going 5-1 against the spread. Following a sluggish first half in last week’s Wild Card matchup against the New York Giants, it quickly got things back in gear to win that game 38-13 as a five-point home favorite with VietBet. The total went OVER 46.5 points and it has gone OVER in the Packers’ last five games.
Last week’s win could be costly if wide receiver Jordy Nelson’s injured ribs keeps him out of this Sunday’s lineup. However, last week Aaron Rodgers was able to fill that void with Davante Adams and Randall Cobb combining for 241 receiving yards and four touchdown catches as part of his 362 passing yards on the day against New York. The Packers’ defense also stepped up its game by holding the Giants to 365 total yards.
Dallas did not finish the regular season playing its best ball with two SU losses in its last four games, while failing to cover in five of its last six contests. The total stayed UNDER 44 points in a season-ending 27-13 loss at Philadelphia as 6.5-point underdogs with VietBet and it has now stayed UNDER in five of the Cowboys’ last seven games. They went 5-2-1 ATS this season at home and the total stayed UNDER in 10 of 16 games on the year.
The big story in Big D all season long was the elevated play of rookie quarterback Dak Prescott and rookie running back Ezekiel Elliott. They proved to be the difference between this year’s high level of success and last year’s 4-12 SU mark. The big question in any bettor’s mind is how each of them will handle the added pressure of playing in their first NFL postseason game. The Cowboys, as a whole, do not have all that much experience playing on such a big stage.

The Packers have the added edge of playing in big games with a veteran quarterback that has already proven he can lead a team to a world title. You get the feeling that costly mistakes and turnovers will dictate the outcome between two very closely matched teams, so I am going with experience and the four points at VietBet in this one with a play on Green Bay.
