The Cowboys are 1.5-point betting favorites on the road against the Chargers on Monday Night Football.
Defense a Priority For Dallas
The Dallas Cowboys are going to try to win this game on defense, and that unit has been pretty solid so far this season. Dallas is allowing just 309 yards per game this season, and the defense will need to come up with some big plays in this game.
Dak Prescott and the Dallas offense has been able to move the ball this season, but they also struggle to find the end zone. Prescott has thrown just five touchdowns this season, and he will need to hit on some big plays in this game.
Wide receiver CeeDee Lamb has 27 catches for 358 yards this season, but he needs to be an even bigger focus on offense. Even though Dallas wants to win this game on defense, the offense needs to step up.
Chargers Want to Score Points
The Chargers are one of the best offensive teams in the NFL, and this team wants to score points in a big way. Los Angeles has thrown for 288 yards per game this season, and quarterback Justin Herbert is a star.
Herbert is dealing with a finger injury on his non-throwing hand, and you can expect the Chargers to have a big performance in this game. The Chargers are averaging nearly 120 rushing yards per game, and that is going to be important in this matchup.
Los Angeles is a team that has been giving up some points, but they are also aggressive by nature. The Chargers will be trying to create some turnovers in this matchup.
Home Team Wins on MNF
It’s been an interesting season for the Dallas Cowboys, but this team clearly still has some work left to do. Dallas has the ability to be a great defensive team, but they are not going to be able to slow down the Chargers in this game.
The Chargers are a bit banged up on offense, but they still have some explosive playmakers on the field. Look for the Chargers to make some explosive plays in this game, as they are going to pull away from the Cowboys.
Bet on the Chargers to win this game at home as they pull off the slight upset and beat the Cowboys on Monday Night Football.
