Dallas takes its undefeated road record into Green Bay to face the Packers, who are undefeated at home this season.

The Dallas Cowboys are 9-0 SU and 7-2 ATS in their last nine games on the road. The Cowboys will be looking for another road upset this Sunday afternoon when they visit the Green Bay Packers at 1:05 p.m. ET at Lambeau Field.

Dallas is a 6-point road underdog on the NFL Divisional Playoffs betting lines. With the superior rushing game and plenty of confidence on the road, Dallas could keep this game close and pick up a cover at +6.

OddsShark Computer Prediction: Green Bay 37.3, Dallas 33.6

After winning its previous four games by double digits, Dallas needed a second-half comeback to overcome the Detroit Lions last week in a 24-20 win at home. The game had its share of controversy down the stretch, but with the season on the line Tony Romo got the job done with a touchdown drive and finished the day with two TD passes and no interceptions. This Sunday, the Cowboys would love to get more out of DeMarco Murray, who was held to only 75 rushing yards a week ago. Dallas is 1-6 SU and 2-5 ATS in its last seven road games against NFC North opponents according to the OddsShark NFL Database.

With its 30-20 win over Detroit in Week 17, Green Bay finished up an 8-0 SU and 6-1-1 ATS season at home. The Packers averaged 39.8 points per game at home in those eight wins, and Aaron Rodgers stretched his personal record to 418 straight passes at home without an interception. Rodgers is banged up with a calf injury but will try to play through it on Sunday. The Packers are just 3-5 SU and 2-5-1 ATS in their last eight playoff home games.

The total is set at 52.5 points at sportsbooks monitored by OddsShark.com. The OVER is 13-3 in the last 16 games between these two teams, 7-0 in Dallas' last seven road games and 7-1 in Green Bay's last eight home games.

For the first time in NFL playoff history, a team that went 8-0 SU on the road will face a team that went 8-0 SU at home. Going off at +6, Dallas looks like a good value play in what should be a great game.
