Any preseason questions about Jordan Love’s future as the Green Bay Packers’ quarterback were put to rest this season. Love threw for over 4,100 yards, 32 touchdowns and led Green Bay to six wins over the final eight games of the regular season to get into the postseason. 

The Cowboys earned the No. 2 seed in the NFC thanks to a late-season slide by the Eagles. Now, Dallas is guaranteed at least two home games on a potential run to the Super Bowl and it starts Sunday against the No. 7 Packers at Jerry World. 

Here are three anytime touchdown bets to consider for the matchup.

Packers vs. Cowboys TD bets

  • Brandin Cooks anytime TD
  • Jake Ferguson anytime TD
  • Aaron Jones anytime TD

Brandin Cooks anytime TD

Yes, CeeDee Lamb deserves the headlines in this Cowboys offense after setting the franchise record in catches (135) and receiving yards (1,749), but Cooks has quietly become a solid complimentary target on the outside. 

Cooks finished the season with 54 catches for 657 yards and eight touchdowns. Dallas is averaging a league-best 37.4 points per game at home and Cooks enters the playoffs with a receiving score in each of the last three games and five of the last seven. He was targeted 16 times in the Cowboys’ final two games of the season, combining for 11 receptions for 99 yards and two scores. 

Dak Prescott should have ample opportunities to attack the Green Bay secondary. The Packers rank 28th in the NFL against the pass and Cooks should see a fair share of targets with defenses willing to sell out to not let Lamb wreck the game. 

Jake Ferguson anytime TD

Green Bay’s poor pass defense and Dallas’ supremacy on offense at AT&T Stadium are still selling points for Ferguson to find the end zone on Sunday, as well. 

Ferguson finished a breakout season in the top-10 amongst tight ends in targets (102), receptions (71), receiving yards (761), yards per catch (10.7), 20-yard receptions (12) and touchdowns (5). Green Bay allowed seven receiving scores to tight ends this season and it’s worth a look for Ferguson to see some red zone targets on Sunday. 

Ferguson received six or more targets in each of the final six regular-season games. 

Aaron Jones anytime TD

Injuries took its toll on Jones this season, resulting in the veteran running back posting his fewest rushing yards (656) since his rookie season and a career-low 3 total touchdowns. So why bet him to hit paydirt against Dallas? 

Jones is finally healthy after missing six games this season and has been the spark the Packers needed over a three-game winning streak to make the postseason.

Jones crossed the century mark in each of those three games, combining for 358 yards on 63 carries. Dallas has been average against the run this season (ranked 16th) but gave up 479 yards on the ground to opposing running backs over the last four games. Jones is also a receiving threat and has logged at least four catches in five of the last eight contests.
