Locks of the Week

Scott: Cowboys -3.5
Dallas came back down to earth in their first game against real competition in New Orleans on Sunday night, but they head home to take on a Packers team that has been brutal against the run and may be without star WR Davante Adams. The Cowboys run the ball down Green Bay’s throat and contain Aaron Rodgers and company in one of Week 5’s premier matchups.

Rohit: Packers vs. Cowboys (Under 46.5) 
Despite offensive stars like Aaron Rodgers and Ezekiel Elliot, these teams have been winning with defense. The Cowboys are holding opponents to 14 ppg while the Packers are allowing 17.2 ppg. Rodgers and Co. have looked out of sync with new coach Matt LaFleur and Dallas mustered just 10 points against New Orleans last week. Bet the Under.

Ben: Cowboys -3.5
We just saw the Packers get run all over by the Eagles and now they have to contend with Ezekiel Elliott. Despite the rest discrepancy, the Cowboys offense should be able to dominate this Packers defense and move the ball at will on the ground. The Packers offense will struggle to see the same success through the air this week against a Cowboys defense which is better than what the Eagles rolled out last week.
