The 2024 NFL Playoffs continue Sunday and we’ll be treated to an NFC Wild Card matchup featuring two historic rivals as the No. 7 Green Bay Packers hit the road to face the No. 2 Dallas Cowboys. The game will kick off at 4:30 p.m. ET and will air on Fox.

Dallas enters the game as a 7-point favorite, accompanied by a total of 50.5. The Cowboys are listed as a -340 moneyline favorite, making the Packers a +270 underdog. Below, we’ll take a look at the betting splits and see how the public is wagering this game. All odds and info were provided by DraftKings Sportsbook.

Point Spread

The public is all over the Cowboys covering as a touchdown favorite here with 60% of the money and 58% of the total bets being pushed their way.

Is the public right?

The public is right to lean on a veteran team at home against a first-year starting quarterback making his first playoff start. Dallas was 6-2 against the spread at home this season, so this is a logical bet to make.

Over/Under

The public loves the over for this matchup. 79% of the money and 64% of the total bets are on the over 50.5 cashing in this game.

Is the public right?

50.5 is a high total, but it’s understandable given that these are two good offenses squaring off in a climate-controlled environment of AT&T Stadium. One thing to keep in my however is the Dallas defense potentially stifling Jordan Love in his first playoff start.

Moneyline

Bettors are all over Dallas on the moneyline as 76% of the money and 81% of the total bets are on “America’s Team” to pick up the win at home.

Is the public right?

It’s an easy choice to pick a veteran team that won its division over a young, upstart team that snuck into the postseason in the final week. The Cowboys are under pressure after embarrassing playoff exits in recent years and they have to handle business as the favorite.
