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.
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.
