  • The Dallas Cowboys are 2.5-point favorites against the Seattle Seahawks in Saturday's NFL Wild Card matchup (8:15 p.m. ET, FOX).
  • While the spread remains at 2.5, sharp money has already hit the over/under, forcing oddsmakers to quickly adjust on the fly.

There 2019 NFL Playoffs are officially here. Wild card matchups are set and sportsbooks opened betting lines for each of the four games Sunday night.

With the Dallas Cowboys securing a postseason berth, it’s no surprise to see the Seahawks-Cowboys matchup earning Saturday’s prime-time slot. Love them or hate them, America’s Team brings fans — and ratings — wherever it goes.

The Cowboys opened as 2.5-point home favorites over the Seahawks, and the spread is right back where it opened.
