When the Dallas Cowboys play the Green Bay Packers on Sunday, we’ll all be rooting for a Cowboys victory, but there is a way to add a little more spice to the game. Prop bets!
DraftKing Sportsbook has a dizzying array of interesting prop bets for the game, so we’ll take a look at a few to try and get an idea of how the game may go.
All the betting odds at North American sportsbooks are based around a bet of $100. A plus sign (positive odds) indicates your profit on a bet of $100, while a minus sign (negative odds) indicates the amount you would have to bet for a $100 profit.
So, a +200 line means that, should the sports bettor win, they receive $200 profit for every $100 they wager (plus their original $100 back). If the wager had a minus sign (i.e. -200), it would mean that the sports bettors will earn $100 profit for every $200 they wager.
Here are the bets to take.
Dak Prescott over 1.5 passing TDs (-215)
Yes, it’s absolutely some of the worst odds we’ve seen on a prop. The payout stinks, but it feels inevitable that Dak Prescott will throw for at least two touchdowns in this game. He’s hot, his receivers are hot, the team is hot at home, and the Packers secondary is not exactly a strength. We’re taking it.
Jordan Love under 247.5 passing yards (-115)
If the Packers are smart, they will run the ball on Dallas where the defense has proven vulnerable in the past. Aaron Jones is a quality back, and Green Bay should be looking to protect an inexperienced Jordan Love against a powerful pass rush from Dallas. The Packers offense should flow through the run game.
CeeDee Lamb over 97.5 passing yards (-115)
It’s hard, in good conscience, to bet against CeeDee Lamb recently. He should break 100 yards in this game as Prescott has decided he is going to target Lamb because no one seems capable of covering him. Take the easy yards on the throw, then let Lamb work his YAC magic.
Jake Ferguson over 4.5 catches (+105)
Last week we bet against Ferguson getting his catches. Bad mistake. As hot as Lamb is, he justifiably gets the lion’s share of targets, but Ferguson is still a safety valve for Prescott. He gets his this week.
