Cowboys vs. Chargers Odds
Dak and the Boys Back in the Saddle
With 403 yards against the Super Bowl champions, Dallas’ QB showed that the injury is a distant past for him. Even though his Cowboys lost to Tampa Bay, that match was a guideline for this unit, which showed that Mike McCarthy’s side is, in fact, one very good team.
They did lose DeMarcus Lawrence for the season, but to be honest, the defense was never their primary weapon in winning the matches.
The attack was excellent against the Bucs, with Amari Cooper having 139 yards and two TDs on 13 catches, while CeeDee Lamb had 104 with a score in seven takes. Ezekiel Elliott had only 11 reps for 33 yards, and we are more than sure in his determination to shine at SoFi Stadium.
Chargers Indicating Playoff Potential
Last year, the LAC didn’t see the playoffs, but the way they opened this campaign that might change. With one of the biggest talents at the QB position, Justin Herbert, and a pretty solid attack, the “less famous” team from the LA is bidding for one of the postseason places right away.
The 20-16 victory over the Football Team in DC boosted the morale of this unit. Herbert was 31-for-47 for 337 yards, one touchdown, and one pick, having two sacks for three negative yards. But the Offensive Rookie of the Year passed the test, that is for sure.
Austin Ekeler had a TD but not that impressive rushing stats, with 57 yards on 15 carries. Keenan Allen caught nine passes for 100 yards, while Mike Williams added a TD to his 82 receiving yards.
Cowboys vs. Chargers Head to Head Games
These two teams met four years ago in Dallas. The Chargers rolled over the hosts with 28-6. It was their third straight victory in the series over this rival. Overall, the Cowboys have six wins, compared to LAC’s five.
Cowboys vs. Chargers Prediction and Pick
Who will win tonight’s NFL game:
The line for the total number of points in this one is set at 55. For us, this is perfect for betting on over because both sides have much better offensive than defensive teams. Dallas lost Lawrence, which is a huge handicap, and that will only help Herbert. On the other side, Prescott is on fire, and his receiving corps is elite, so we should see a lot of points coming from the Cowboys as well.
