The Dallas Cowboys visit the Green Bay Packers in Week 10 of the 2022 NFL Season. The Cowboys are coming off a bye, but beat the Chicago Bears in a blow out before it. The Packers, on the other side, are coming off a very close loss to the Detroit Lions. This should be an interesting matchup for the pecking order in the NFC. Let’s take a look at the odds and make some picks and predictions for this game!
Dallas Cowboys vs. Green Bay Packers Betting Odds
The Dallas Cowboys are a 5-point road favorite against the Green Bay Packers and are at -225 on the money line. The over/under is also at 43. The Cowboys being this big of a favorite on the road makes sense because the Packers have really struggled recently, losing five straight. The Cowboys are also playing like one of the best teams in the NFL. The over/under also makes sense because both teams have good defenses which definitely helps bring this number down.
Dallas Cowboys vs. Green Bay Packers Prediction
The pick: Cowboys -5
The Cowboys have been one of the better teams in the NFL this year. They are led by their defense mainly, with Dan Quinn getting a lot out of that unit this year. The main playmaker on that side of the ball is Micah Parsons on the outside. He’s been a master at getting to the quarterback ever since he got into the league. The defense allows 17 points and 340 total yards on the year. Teams can beat them through the air a bit more than on the ground, but the defense is still rock solid across the board. The offense for the Cowboys has been good too, and has really picked it up on the ground. The Packers have been a huge struggle this year, and it’s come mostly on the offensive end, surprisingly. The offense averages 17 points and 361 total yards a game on the year. It just seems like things aren’t getting any better for the Packers because their wide receiving room is littered with injuries and Aaron Rodgers can’t seem to get on the same page with any of them. The running game and the game being at Lambeau could present some issues for the Cowboys, but the Cowboys are the easier bet here because they are just more trustworthy.
Cowboys are 6-1 ATS in their last 7 road games.
Packers are 4-1 ATS in their last 5 games in Week 10.

Check out the key matchups and mismatches for Dallas Cowboys vs Green Bay Packers below.
Dak Prescott vs the Packers Secondary
Dak Prescott has been very good this year, even after the injury that kept him out a few weeks. He only has played in three games for the Cowboys this year, but has gone 2-1 in those. He has 591 passing yards, three passing touchdowns, two interceptions, and he has a 67% completion percentage on the year. He might be asked to do more here than he has been because there’s a chance Ezekiel Elliott might not be available here. The Packers give up 182 passing yards a game, so it will be a very tough matchup for Dak. If Dak can have a good game here, especially if Elliott doesn’t play, then the Cowboys should be fine here.
Aaron Rodgers vs the Cowboys Secondary
Aaron Rodgers has been struggling this year a lot more than we have really seen before. He has 2,091 passing yards, 14 passing touchdowns, seven interceptions, and he has a 65% completion percentage on the year. These are not typical Aaron Rodgers stats that we normally see in any given NFL season. The Cowboys allow 205 passing yards a game on the year, so Rodgers could get some yards here, but it’ll be difficult. The only chance the Packers have in this game is if Rodgers can get anything going through the air, and if not it’s going to be very hard for the Packers to win.
