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.

Odds on the Cowboys to beat the Packers slashed 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.
