Or will the Cowboys embarrass their visitors? Going into this Sunday’s game the sportsbook expects a fairly close one, but favors the home team by just over a field goal. The Packers and the Cowboys are +1600 and +1200 to win Super Bowl 54, respectively.

Betting on the Green Bay Packers (3-1)
The Packers were among the teams that entered Week 4 undefeated and exited it with a loss, as they were thumped at home by the Philadelphia Eagles, 34-27. The Packers were feeling high on their defense, but that same stop unit betrayed them in the Eagles game, allowing Philly to rack up five touchdowns. Quarterback Aaron Rodgers had 422 passing and two touchdowns against an interception on 34-of-53 completions. The Packers are hoping wide receiver DaVante Adams will get a greenlight to play against the Cowboys after prematurely leaving the Philly game with a toe injury. Should Adams be absent, Jimmy Graham, Geronimo Allison, and Marquez Valdes-Scantling will see increased snaps and likely, targets downfield. The Cowboys are tough against the pass and run, but Rodgers has the talent to dissect any kind of defense thrown his way.
The Packers are 2-0 against the spread (ATS) in their last two road games.
Betting on the Dallas Cowboys (3-1)
Dak Prescott gave birth to a new meme last Sunday, when he threw a Hail Mary pass near the end of their game against the New Orleans Saints to Amari Cooper, who was covered by four defenders. The Cowboys ended up losing the game, 12-10. The loss highlighted the Cowboys’ offense that seems to lack an extra gear. But it also showed that their defense is capable of keeping them in step with their opponents. The Cowboys are allowing just 14.0 points per game and just 318.5 total yards per contest. While the Cowboys’ three opponents prior to meeting the Saints were all against teams not expected to contend for a playoff spot, New Orleans gave them a test that Dallas passed — at least defensively. They will have to keep that same energy on the defensive end against Rodgers, Running back Ezekiel Elliott can rebound from a dismal outing against the Saints in which he only had 35 rushing yards, as the Packers are allowing 142.2 yards on the ground per game.
The Cowboys are 6-3-1 ATS in their last 10 home games.
The Packers win, 27-23.
