Dallas Cowboys Super Bowl odds take hit after loss to Packers

The Dallas Cowboys entered the 2017 NFL season as a team who many considered to be legitimate Super Bowl contenders, and rightfully so. They were coming off an impressive 13-3 season and had their two young offensive stars in quarterback Dak Prescott and running back Ezekiel Elliott set to enter their second seasons.

But, it’s been a bit of a bumpy ride for the Cowboys to this point, as they’ve gotten off to a 2-3 start which included two narrow losses to the Los Angeles Rams and Green Bay Packers.

After the 2017 NFL Draft, the Cowboys were sitting with 8:1 odds to win the Super Bowl, after originally opening at 10:1. Heading into the team’s Week 5 matchup with the Packers, those odds were up to 11:1, showing that oddsmakers hadn’t lost all that much faith in the Cowboys as contenders.

But after seeing the Cowboys unable to hold off a late Aaron Rodgers touchdown in Week 6, paired with a few other things happening in the NFC, the oddsmakers have made a drastic change.

As Jon Machota of The Dallas Morning News pointed out, Bovada currently has the Cowboys Super Bowl odds at 20:1.

In comparison, the New England Patriots (9:2), Green Bay Packers (5:1) and Kansas City Chiefs (13:2) are leading the way as the favorites. The highest NFC East team on the list is the Philadelphia Eagles, currently sitting at 10:1.
