Good morning and happy Hump Day, everyone.
According to Betmgm, the Chargers open week two as three-point favorites over the Cowboys with an over/under of 55 that saw a minor increase from 52 earlier this week. Against the Bucs, Dallas had an impressive showing where they put up 29 points against the vaunted Bucs defense. However, their defense was picked apart all night as they gave up 31 on the night.
The Chargers offense managed just 20 points against Washington, despite some rough call by the officials and a bad habit of stalling in the red zone. The Bolts and Cowboys defenses are a step down from the Tampa Bay’s and Washington’s units, so it’s easy to see this game score blow up on Sunday between two high-flying offenses.
What do you all think of the opening odds? Should the Chargers be favored? Should the over/under be lower? Let us know in the comments below.
