Dallas Cowboys at Los Angeles Chargers CashBet Wagering Analysis

Brandon Staley and Justin Herbert shared a great Super Bowl best Week-1 payout at Washington.  Herbert and the Chargers excelled on third downs.  As a result, Staley got a victory in his first game as LA head coach.  Los Angeles escaped Washington with a sloppy Week-1 win full of turnovers and big penalties. Herbert threw for 337 yards and a touchdown.  And he overcame a fumble into the end zone and a red-zone interception.  But LA went 14 of 19 on third down.  Now the Chargers get a chance to show America how good they are Sunday against Dallas.

Dallas Cowboys at Los Angeles Chargers CashBet Wagering Analysis

On this occasion, we have the biggest online sportsbook brand in the NFL.  Dallas consistently draws massive amounts of casual money.  Counter to that is a lesser-known Chargers team emerging as a serious contender.

Cowboys Bring Back Dak and Revamped Defense

Last week the Cowboys lost at Tampa Bay 31-29 but covered as 10-point dogs.  Over the betting on Super Bowl total of 52.5 paid too.  As a result, the Cowboys are 0-1 straight up, 1-0 vs. the odds, and 1-0 over the total.

Dak Prescott threw for 403 yards and three TDs for Dallas in his first game back from injury.  Of course, his 2020 season ended after just five games. The sixth-year pro didn’t play in the preseason after straining his right shoulder early in training camp.  Thus, limitations on his throwing weren’t lifted until about two weeks before the opener. Prescott got help from a revamped Dallas defense that forced a fumble and intercepted a pass.

Amari Cooper finished with 13 catches for 139 yards.  Including a 5-yard TD catch in the second quarter. CeeDee Lamb had a 22-yard scoring reception for the Cowboys.

Chargers Overcome Mistakes in Successful Staley Debut

Last week at Washington, the Chargers beat the Super Bowl betting odds 20-16 as 2.5-point dogs.  Under the total of 45 was a winner too.  Los Angeles is 1-0, both straight up and against the spread.  While the Chargers are 0-1 under the total.

Herbert led scoring drives of 75, 76, and 68 yards.  Further, he threw a go-ahead touchdown pass to Mike Williams.   And then there was also the 6-plus-minute drive late in the fourth quarter that ran down the clock and ended with Herbert kneeling in the victory formation.  Chargers’ kicker Tristan Vizcaino connected on field goals of 33 and 27 yards. Overall, both teams combined for 14 penalties for 151 yards and three giveaways.

Dallas Cowboys at Los Angeles Chargers Against the Spread

Dallas has gotten the cash in four of their most recent five games.   Further, Dallas is 5-10 straight up in the previous 15 games.  And then the Cowboys are 2-10 straight up on the road.  In September, Dallas is 1-4 on the board.  Also, the Cowboys are 6-2 over the Super Bowl betting total in their last eight matchups.  Dallas is 5-10 under the number against the AFC.

Late on, the Chargers got the cash in five consecutive games.  Specifically, against the NFC East, LA is 12-2 straight up.  Los Angeles is 2-5 under the total in their most recent seven games.  Also, the Chargers are 4-10 to the under at home.  In September, the Chargers are 0-5 under the total.

To summarize, the Chargers have covered four of their previous five games against Dallas.  Los Angeles is 4-1 straight up vs. the Cowboys.  However, Los Angeles is 2-4 straight up when playing at home against the Cowboys.
