3 best early prop bets for Cowboys vs Rams Week 5 matchup
Week 5 is here and the Cowboys head to Los Angeles to take on the reigning Super Bowl champions, who don’t look so hot as of late. America’s Team is riding a miraculous three-game win streak under the leadership of Cooper Rush, while the Los Angeles Rams will be on short rest after a 24-9 loss to their NFC West rival San Francisco 49ers.
Considering the Cowboys’ last two opponents were the New York Giants and the Washington Commanders, the Rams will be a much tougher team to face. However, what we once thought was going to be one of the hardest games on their schedule may be a little bit easier now, thanks to some unfortunate injuries on both sides of the ball for Los Angeles.
Dallas has a real chance to show that they are worthy of being the fifth-ranked team in the NFC this weekend. Dak Prescott will not be playing, giving Rush a chance to further his historic run at SoFi Stadium, which should have a lot of Cowboys fans in the stands.
The LA defense is quite dominant, which could be a problem for Rush and the run game. However, with a smart game plan and their strong defensive squad, the Cowboys have more of a chance than initially expected.
Looking to put money on the game? Here are three of the best early prop bet options for you.
Dallas Cowboys 3 Best Early Prop Bets for Week 5 vs. the Rams
**All numbers are from FanDuel**
1. Anytime Touchdown Scorer – Noah Brown (+370)
Any time you can get the hottest Cowboys wideout at odds this good, you have to take him to reach the end zone and continue his breakout. CeeDee Lamb will be blanketed, and caught just five balls for 59 yards the last time he faced the Rams in 2020. He’ll be slow and steady; Brown will be explosive.
2. First Touchdown Scorer – Ezekiel Elliott (+900)
Again, after all you’ve seen from the Cowboys and the bedraggled Rams defense in recent weeks, it makes all the sense in the world to take these skewed odds and hope Dallas caps a methodical first drive with a Zeke TD.
3. Same Game Parlay: Cowboys +5.5 and Under 43.5 (+234)
Matthew Stafford’s Rams won’t re-learn how to be explosive overnight against Micah Parsons’ wrecking crew. Cooper Rush will manage the game and keep it close. Who’s scoring over 21, though?
