Cowboys vs. Chargers prop bets
- Austin Ekeler OVER 48.5 rushing yards (-121)
- Joshua Palmer OVER 47.5 receiving yards (-103)
- Dak Prescott UNDER 256.5 passing yards (-119)
Austin Ekeler OVER 48.5 rushing yards (-121)
The Cowboys have had issues stopping the run this season. Through the first five weeks, they rank just 24th in the NFL in opponent yards per carry, allowing teams to gain 4.5 yards per rush against them.
Austin Ekeler will make his first start since Week 1, and let's not forget how strong of a performance he had in that game. He gained 117 yards on 16 carries against the Dolphins, so if he can get anywhere close to that level of production on Monday night, he'll soar of this total.
Joshua Palmer OVER 47.5 receiving yards (-103)
With Mike Williams sidelined with an injury, Joshua Palmer has taken over as the No. 2 option in the receiving game. In their latest game against the Raiders, he caught 3-of-8 targets for 77 yards. I think now is the great time to buy low on Palmer while the general public continues to underrate his production.
He averaged 40.0 yards per game so far this season and with Williams sidelined I think he'll average closer to 60 yards per game the rest of the season.
Dak Prescott UNDER 256.5 passing yards (-119)
Dak Prescott has had a bit of a rough year so far, averaging only 212.2 passing yards per game this season. For some reason, oddsmakers are still setting his passing yards total at a high mark of 256.5.
Until they adjust that number, I'm going to continue to bet on the UNDER for his passing yards total.
Odds refresh periodically and are subject to change.
