Cowboys vs. Chargers Picks

Chris Raybon: I initially liked the Cowboys after they managed to stay with the Bucs (albeit with the help of some turnovers) in check, but then Demarcus Lawrence broke his foot, which changed things. Lawrence had a team-high five total pressures and posted a 91.4 PFF grade in Week 1. No other Cowboys defender had more than three pressures or a PFF grade better than 74.1. It doesn’t help that Randy Gregory (COVID-19) is also out.

The Chargers are also dealing with some injury issues, as tackle Bryan Bulaga (back) was placed on IR and cornerback Chris Harris Jr. (shoulder) was ruled out. Defensive tackle Justin Jones (calf) is doubtful as well.

With all the uncertainty, these odds look about right, so I’ll pass. If absolutely forced to make a bet, I’d take the over.

Pick: Pass


Cowboys vs. Chargers Prop Picks

Dalton Schultz Under 32.5 Rec Yards (-115) at BetMGM

The Cowboys ran a near-even committee at TE with Schultz and Blake Jarwin. Schultz managed to haul in all six of his Week 1 targets for 45 yards. He carries a much lower median projection heading into Week 2 than the market projects here.

  • Bet to: 29.5

Austin Ekeler Over 30.5 Rec Yards (-115) at BetMGM

Ekeler’s zero-catch performance was one of the flukiest stat lines of Week 1 — especially since new offensive coordinator Joe Lombardi is expected to use Ekeler heavily in the passing game in the “Alvin Kamara role” in this Sean Payton-influenced offense.

This screams of a buy-low opportunity that I’m pouncing on.

  • Bet to: 32.5
