Odds on the
Cowboys to beat the Packers slashed
The betting odds on the Dallas
Cowboys to beat the Green Bay Packers tomorrow have been
shortened with players recovering from injuries.
So far everything is going good for the Green Bay Packers, one
day away from facing off the Dallas Cowboys for a playoff home
field. The point spread for the NFL game is still favoring the
Cowboys -7 points at the online bookmaker
Bodog Sports, but the odds have
changed a little. The Dallas Cowboys entered the betting sheets
with odds on beating the Packers at -325, but now those betting
odds have been slashed to a money line of -290. The Green Bay
Packers held betting odds of +275 earlier this week, and today
remain underdog, but their odds on winning the game have
improved to +245. The total for the Cowboys - Packers game is
sitting at 52 points.
The Packers have been surprisingly good
this season and a lot of bets were taken with Green Bay as
favorite, thus the change of the Packers odds. Also, Green Bay
defender Nick Collins recovered from his knee injury is back on
practice schedule and will take part in the game against the
Dallas Cowboys. Left cornerback Charles Woodson is still listed
as questionable, but expected to play. Cowboys wide receiver
Patrick Crayton will take part in the game, as well as
cornerback Anthony Henry, who also did a full practice today.
Dallas Cowboys wide receiver Terry Glenn will not play tomorrow.
Both Tony Romo and Brett Favre are good for Thursday.
Keep in mind that Cowboys vs. Packers
odds are moving literally by the hour as bets are pouring in at
the bookmakers and future adjustments are almost certain.
Meanwhile, although sports betting over the
phone is illegal in both Dallas and Wisconsin, according to
Dallas News, Dallas Mayor Tom Leppert and Green Bay Mayor Jim
Schmitt have managed to sneak a wager between the two. According
to the paper: "If the Cowboys win, Green Bay Mayor Jim
Schmitt will send 10 pounds of Sargento cheese and a gift basket
of football-shaped summer sausage to his Dallas counterpart. But
if the Packers win, Dallas Mayor Tom Leppert owes Mr. Schmitt a
bounty of sweet tea and barbecue." Bet on mayors, bet on.
