The Packers have basically been playing in must-win games since the end of November. That’s what happens when you start 4-6, but Green Bay has bounced back from that ugly 10 week stretch in a big way by putting together seven straight victories. Looking to squash their win streak and end their season is the Dallas Cowboys who are on a nice run of their own as they’ve won seven straight games at home.
The Cowboys are 0-4 SU and 1-3 ATS in their last four games in the Divisional round.
Leading the Pack on their epic stretch run has been, big shock, Aaron Rodgers. Over his last eight games, he’s gone off for 22 TDs and ZERO INTs, with five games of 300 or more yards. He also has a nice stat line in six career divisional round games — 12 TDs, three picks. This includes a win over Dallas in the divisional round two years ago where he threw for 316 yards and three TDs. It looks extremely likely, however, that he’ll be without his top target, Jordy Nelson, who fractured his ribs vs the Giants.
Dallas’ greatest strength is clearly its running game which was on full display in its Week 6 win in Green Bay. Ezekiel Elliott went off for 157 yards, averaging 5.6 yards per carry. It was clearly an off day for the Packers, as Green Bay was actually one of eight teams in the NFL to allow less than 94 rushing yards per game. The Packers D has gone four straight games without allowing 100 rushing yards and If they can limit Elliott’s production, they’ll be in an excellent position to win.
Slowing the Dallas run would force Dak Prescott to throw more and this is where it gets interesting. There were just four games this season where Prescott had a QB rating below 100. In each of those games he had 36 or more pass attempts and Dallas went on to lose two of the games. Dallas won each of the games where Prescott had a QB rating above 100, but the QB averaged 10 fewer pass attempts in those games. So in other words, Dallas isn’t at its best when Prescott is forced to throw.
If you’re still on the fence, there’s an interesting historic trend that might push you towards the Cowboys. Since 1983, these teams have played 13 times in Dallas. Green Bay went just 2-11 SU in those games, and covered the spread just three times.
