Cowboys vs. Chargers odds, spread, and total
Cowboys vs. Chargers exact score prediction
If you read my pick in the "Road to 272 Bets", you know that I like the Chargers in this game, so I know already I'm going to predict the Chargers to be on the right side of the final score.
When it comes to the total, I'm going to lean towards the UNDER. The Cowboys' defense is certainly its strength, while the offense has sputtered this season when not given premier field position. Many of the points scored in Cowboys games early in the season came from defensive and special teams scores, but we can't rely on those occurring on a weekly basis.
We know the Chargers offense is one of the better units in the NFL, but the Cowboys have the defensive weapons to slow them down. I also expect a bit of a bounce-back performance from the Los Angeles defense after a slow start to the season.
Final score prediction: Cowboys 17 - Chargers 20
