The Dallas Cowboys may be among the most complicated groups in the NFL today. At times, they have actually appeared like major postseason competitors, while likewise suffering double-digit losses to both the Arizona Cardinals and San Francisco 49ers. The latter would appear forgivable if it wasn’t by an uneven last rating of 42-10. But that loss to the Cardinals? Borderline untenable. At 3-2, it is difficult to understand where this group is headed. Still, DraftKings Sportsbook lists Dallas as small favorites on the roadway versus a 2-2 LA Chargers team that is coming off its Bye Week. To be sincere, I’m not precisely sure why.
Keenan Allen is putting a huge season together for the Chargers, and the Cowboys haven’t appeared like the very same group because they lost Trevon Diggs. This might spell problem for the ‘Boys. But potentially even more concerning is the fact that the Chargers are currently tied with the Seattle Seahawks with 16 sacks on the season; only the Buffalo Bills hold a higher per-game sack total. Dak Prescott has stayed relatively clean in the proverbial pocket, as he has only taken nine sacks this season, according to Pro Football Focus. However, six of those have happened over the last two weeks. That isn’t terrific for a group that simply had one gamer post 6 sacks in a single video game (Khalil Mack). However, things aren’t looking terrific for Joey Bosa at the minute, so the Dallas offense might get some reprieve if he is out.
The long and short of it is that Dallas remains in a precarious circumstance; some are currently calling this a “must-win” video game. In a vacuum, it is a video game that they must win. However, the Cowboys have actually been outscored 73-64 because losing Diggs. The Chargers, on the other hand, have yet to lose a video game by more than 3 points. Factor because Kellen Moore understands the ins and outs of this Dallas group and he might be trying to find some vengeance after parting methods with the company. Call me mad, however I am choosing the Chargers in this one. The O/U is quite lofty, however, and I don’t anticipate either group to light it up the method San Francisco did recently.
The choice: Under 51 points, Chargers win directly and cover the spread
