Chargers vs Cowboys Betting Preview
Los Angeles Chargers
The Chargers (4-6) have recovered from an 0-4 start and a win here is crucial to making up a two game deficit in the AFC West to the slumping Kansas City Chiefs who have dropped four of their last five games. Quarterback Philip Rivers to wide Receiver Keenan Allen (56 receptions, 755 yards) should happen early and often in this game. The Chargers Joey Bosa (10.5 sacks) and Melvin Ingram (8.5) pace a defense that is ranked eighth in scoring defense (19.6 points per game).
Dallas is four games behind league-leading Philadelphia in the NFC East and has been outscored 64-16 while losing to Atlanta and the Eagles in their last two games. The Cowboys (5-5) quarterback Dak Prescott has passed for 2,139 yards and 16 touchdowns with seven interceptions, but Dallas has allowed 12 sacks over the last two games while missing left tackle Tryon Smith. The defense, will be missing outside linebacker Sean Lee (hamstring).

Chargers vs Cowboys Betting Prediction
The Cowboys opened as 3 point favorites and the money came in heavily on the Chargers who are now 1 point favorites. The Cowboys have just lost too much talent to compete. The Chargers are playing better and the matchups heavily favor the Chargers as their defensive strength of rushing the passer will be made much easier as Dallas will be without their starting left tackle again. On offense the Chargers will be able to run all day against a Dallas defense without Sean Lee at linebacker. I am taking the Chargers and laying the points up to 6.
