Divisional Round Odds: Dallas Cowboys Open As 4-Point Favorites Against Green Bay Packers

The Dallas Cowboys have opened as 4-point favorites against the Green Bay Packers for next Sunday's divisional round matchup.

The Cowboys will host the Packers in next Sunday's Divisional Round game, and the Cowboys opened as 4-point favorites in that game. The over/under for the game is set at 51.5, so expectations are for a high-scoring game. The two teams last met earlier this season, when the Cowboys pulled off a 30-16 win in Green Bay, but expectations are for a much closer game this time around.

That can't be said for all divisional round games.

On Saturday night, the Patriots are currently 16-point favorites against the Texans. That is the highest spread for a Divisional Round game since the 1998-99 season. The other three games look to be a little more competitive, at least on paper.

In the early game on Saturday, the Falcons opened as 3.5-point home favorites over the Seahawks, but early sharp action on Atlanta has moved the odds to -4.5 already.

The first game on Sunday opened with even odds between the Chiefs and the visiting Steelers, but the odds have since moved to make the Chiefs 1-point home favorites

Here's the full list of early odds for the divisional round of the NFL Playoffs:

Date and Time Favorite Line Underdog Total
1/14 4:35 ET At Atlanta -4.5 Seattle 51
1/14 8:15 ET At New England -16 Houston 45
1/15 1:05 ET At Kansas City -1 Pittsburgh 46
1/15 4:40 ET At Dallas -4 Green Bay 51.5

The wildcard round saw all four home teams win their games quite handily, will we see a repeat performance by the home teams in the divisional round?

The Cowboys are 7-1 at home this season, while the Packers are just 4-4 on the road this year.
