Betting on the Dallas Cowboys (+3)
Regular Season Record: 0-1
Although they lost to the Tampa Bay Buccaneers in Week 1, 31-29, the Cowboys have some things to feel good about. For one, Dak Prescott looked good in that game. Prescott, who suffered a season-ending injury last year, passed for 403 yards and three touchdowns against an interception on 42/58 completions. The Cowboys went wild on the air, leaving the ground attack with only 18 touches overall. Ezekiel Elliott can have a bigger load this time around, though, against the Chargers, who allowed nearly 130 rushing yards in Week 1 to the Washington Football Team. Then again, it would be so hard for the Cowboys to resist feeding Amari Cooper and CeeDee Lamb downfield. Cooper was unstoppable against Tampa Bay, as he finished with 139 receiving yards and two touchdowns on 13 receptions. Lamb had 104 receiving yards and a touchdown on seven catches. If the Cowboys’ defense won’t click, they can always count on their explosive offense.
The Cowboys are 5-1 against the spread in their last six games as an underdog.
Betting on the Los Angeles Chargers (-3)
Regular Season Record: 1-0
The Chargers had a rocky win in Week 1 over the Washington Football Team on the road, 20-16, but they certainly will take a victory any way they can. Justin Herbert kicked off his Year 2 in the NFL by passing for 337 yards and a touchdown with an interception on 31/47 completions. Los Angeles had six trips to the red zone and connected on two of those. Despite the errors in Week 1, the Chargers’ offense is still dangerous, especially with Herbert and receiver Keenan Allen and Mike Williams downfield. They can rip Dallas’ defense that just last year allowed 29.6 points and 386.4 total yards per game. Allen and Williams plus pass-catching running back Austin Ekeler and tight end Jared Cook can roast the Cowboys’ secondary that got embarrassed in Week 1 by the aging duo of Antonio Brown and Rob Gronkowski.
The Chargers are 5-0 against the spread in their last five games overall.
The Cowboys win, 24-23.
