Packers vs. Cowboys Betting Preview 01/15/17 – NFL Odds & TV

Betting Preview

Green Bay crushed the Giants 38-13 last week in the Wildcard Round for their seventh straight win.

Quarterback Aaron Rodgers threw four touchdown passes without an interception for the second week in a row. He has almost single handedly thrown the Packers into the playoffs since week 11 when they were 4-6 and had just lost their fourth straight game.

Over the last seven games Rodgers has thrown 18 touchdowns without and interception and has a league leading 40 for the season. He has led an offense that has scored 30 points or better in five straight games while the defense held four teams to 13 points or less during the streak. The Packers’ offense suffered a big blow when WR Jordy Nelson suffered an injury last week and won’t play in this game.

The Cowboys had the longest winning streak in the NFL this season when they won 11 straight. Since then they have gone 2-2 but rested most of their star players in the last game of the regular season where they were beaten by Philadelphia.

Rookie quarterback Dak Prescott leads a very balanced offense as he threw 23 touchdown passes while the league’s second best running game scored 24 touchdowns this year. Another rookie,running back Ezekiel Elliot led the league with over 1600 yards while in the first meeting with Green Bay earlier in the season ran for 157 yards and Prescott threw three touchdowns in a 30-16 win.

The Cowboys are vulnerable to the pass as they are ranked 26th in pass defense but this season they held 10 opponents to 21 points or less scoring.

The oddsmakers have made the Cowboys a 4.5 point favorite and set the total at 52. According to Consensus Analysis 64% of the public believe the Packers are playing well enough to back Green Bay while 70% think a lot of scoring is inevitable and are taking the over.

Green Bay has won five of the last six meetings between these teams.

WHO IS THE ICEMAN? He’s no soothsayer and he doesn’t have a crystal ball, but Jesse Schule can indeed predict the future. As a professional handicapper, it’s actually part of his job description. His clients have accused him of secretly possessing Marty McFly’s Sports Almanac, but he tells us the secret to his success is thanks in part to his fascination with history. The idea that you can predict the future by studying the past is nothing new. Historians have been doing it for years.

Handicapping Methodology: Jesse is not a believer in systems, programs or number crunching formulas to handicap games. He is firm in his belief that you aren't playing against the sportsbook, you are playing against the average Joe (other bettors). Jesse is notorious for attacking inflated point spreads, soft lines and totals that are a little out of whack. He also relies on a nearly photographic memory with an uncanny ability to tell you a player's history and stats dating back for decades. Anyone can look up how many touchdowns a guy has scored, Jesse can also tell you about the ones that he almost scored.

Money Management: His plays are rated based on a 1-10 star system, and he recommends wagering 0.5 percent of your bankroll per star rating. So a top rated 10* play would represent a bet equal to five percent of a player's bankroll.

Signature Plays:

AFTERNOON EXECUTIONER: This title is reserved for games with a start time between 12:00 – 4:30 ET. These are popular with action junkies who are dying for the games to get underway.

The TERMINATOR: Jesse's signature totals play, the Terminator has established a reputation as one of the most consistent winners in Schule's repertoire.

TOO GOOD TO BE TRUE: These plays represent a game where the stats show a significant trend which isn't reflected in the price.

GRIM REAPER BLOWOUT: His signature play reserved for medium to large favorites. High percentage plays for those who don't mind laying chalk.

HOT DIGGITY DOG: This is the Iceman's signature underdog play. About as rare as strawberries in December, you'll want to grab these whenever they are available
