Cowboys vs. Chargers

Monday, Oct. 16
8:15 p.m. ET

Dak Prescott

Over 251.5 Passing Yards (-114)

By Michael Crosson

Through the first five weeks of the season, Dak Prescott is averaging just 212 passing yards per game, which puts him on pace for the second-lowest passing yardage number of his career. He averaged a career-worst 208 passing yards back in 2017, but aside from that, he hasn’t fallen short of 229 yards per game in any of his professional campaigns.

In Prescott’s defense, the Cowboys have played in some really lopsided football games early in the season, for better or worse, which has led to a dip in his passing stats out of the gate. He completed just 14-of-23 pass attempts for 143 yards in a 40-0 win over the Giants in Week 1, and he connected on just 14-of-24 attempts for 153 yards in a 42-10 loss to the 49ers in Week 5. 

However, in the Cowboys’ three outings wedged between those two performances, Mike McCarthy has given Prescott carte blanche to let it rip in the passing game. He averaged 255 passing yards on 37.3 pass attempts per game in Weeks 2-4.

After playing awful in a blowout loss, the stage is perfectly set for a big bounce-back performance for the Dallas aerial attack against a Chargers secondary that enters the week ranked 30th in yards allowed per pass attempt and last in passing yardage allowed per game.

Pick: Dak Prescott Over 251.5 Passing Yards (-114)

Justin Herbert

Over 25.5 Completions (-110)

By Michael Crosson

Chargers offensive coordinator Kellen Moore had a pretty tame game plan for the passing attack against the Raiders in Week 4. Herbert completed just 13-of-24 pass attempts for 167 yards and one touchdown en route to a 24-17 victory.

But speaking of coaches allowing their quarterback to let it rip, that’s exactly what Moore did in his first three games as Chargers OC. In Weeks 1 through 3, Herbert averaged 313 passing yards on 40.3 pass attempts to go along with six touchdowns and zero interceptions.

The Cowboys secondary has been stingy against the pass, currently ranked sixth in opponent completion percentage and 13th in yards allowed per pass attempt. However, in a contest in which the Chargers defense is expected to surrender a bunch of points, Herbert should still be able to clear this number despite the tough situational draw.

Pick: Justin Herbert Over 25.5 Completions (-110)

CeeDee Lamb

Over 68.5 Receiving Yards (-114)

By Michael Crosson

The Cowboys were embarrassed in primetime last week. Now with a shot at immediate redemption and a chip on their shoulder, they head out west to face a Chargers defense that has surrendered 24+ points in three of four matchups, and 27+ points in two of four.

Ceedee Lamb has been pretty quiet over the last two weeks. He enters this contest having tallied 50 or fewer receiving yards in back-to-back matchups against New England and San Francisco, which is a mark he fell short of in just three of 19 outings last year, including two playoff games.

However, prior to his latest two outings, Lamb hauled in 19-of-24 targets for 273 yards across a trio of matchups against the Giants, Jets and Cardinals.

I think we’ll see Lamb bounce back with a big game against a Bolts secondary that enters the week ranked last in passing yardage allowed.

Pick: CeeDee Lamb Over 68.5 Receiving Yards (-114)
