3 best early prop bets for Cowboys vs Packers Week 10 NFC matchup
What was initially thought to be a midseason matchup between two powerhouse teams has turned into something completely different. The Dallas Cowboys come into this one at 6-2, after winning four of five games without their star quarterback, and the constantly-dominant Green Bay Packers enter this game on a five-game losing streak.
After Week 1, everyone counted the Cowboys out. Now, they sit at fifth in the NFC while the reigning No. 1 overall seed in the NFC sits all the way down at No. 12 with their chances of making the playoffs slim to none.
This series has a ton of history, including some of the most heartbreaking, last-minute losses that Dallas has suffered in recent years. Now, heading into Week 10, the Cowboys look to hand Green Bay their sixth-straight loss and get their first win against this enemy since 2016.
From everything we know, including lengthy injury reports for both sides, this should be an easy win for Dallas. However, a rivalry game in the Frozen Tundra brings many unknowns. Mike McCarthy and his players need to come in prepared to fight rather than assume an easy battle.
If you’re looking to place some bets on the game, here are three early prop bets to consider for the Cowboys vs. Packers in Week 10.
Dallas Cowboys 3 Best Early Prop Bets for Week 10 vs. the Packers
**All numbers are from FanDuel**
1. Dak Prescott Under 32.5 Pass Attempts (-130)
While we aren’t entirely sure if Ezekiel Elliott will play or how much he will if he does, the Cowboys have been using their run game to their advantage. The Packers’ defense has several critical injuries and their run defense certainly isn’t a strong suit. Expect Prescott to continue to use his legs like he did last week and use Tony Pollard and Elliott as much as he can. Because of this, we expect more rushing than passing for the Cowboys in this game. Plus, this exact “under 32.5 pass attempts” bet has hit seven of nine times against the Packers this season.
2. Dalton Schultz Over 32.5 Receiving Yards (-114)
With several banged-up Packers linebackers, expect there to be matchup issues in this game. Plus, Dalton Schultz looked like a new version of himself with Dak Prescott back at quarterback. Over the last two games with No. 4, Schultz had 11 catches for 123 yards. Schultz has always been a safety blanket for the Cowboys QB and this week should be no different.
3. Aaron Rodgers Over 0.5 Interceptions (+135)
The back-to-back MVP threw three interceptions last weekend against one of the worst defenses in the NFL — two of those were in the end zone. The Cowboys have a strong ball-hawking secondary with guys like Trevon Diggs, Malik Hooker, and Donovan Wilson ready to intercept a ball at any opportunity. With Rodgers likely being down at more than one point in this game and Aaron Jones coming off an ankle injury, expect some desperate passes to be thrown up in the air with a chance of interception. With seven interceptions in eight games, the Cowboys’ defense knows how to steal the ball from opposing quarterbacks.
