Since graduating from Davidson (The College That Stephen Curry Built), I have been writing about sports--just about any and all you can think of!--and coaching tennis in Atlanta, Ga. Beyond the four major sports, I am an avid tennis fan and cover the ATP Tour on a daily basis. If I'm not busy writing, you can generally find me on a tennis court or traveling the world wherever a sporting event takes me.

The Dallas Cowboys played well in Week 1, but not well enough to find the win column against the Tampa Bay Buccaneers. As such the ‘Boys will be desperate to avoid an 0-2 hole, which was the fate the NFC East rival New York Giants on Thursday. Dallas has a tough test on its hands in the form of the Los Angeles Chargers. Let’s take a look at the best same game parlay option for Cowboys-Chargers, and also be sure to check out our full game preview for picks on the side and total.

Los Angeles Chargers -3 (-110)

Justin Herbert 302.5 passing yards (-113)

Keenan Allen over 77.5 receiving yards (-113)

Mike Williams over 56.5 receiving yards (-113)

Parlay odds: +960

Part of the value in same game parlays, of course, is that all of its components can be correlated if you so choose. That is the entire plan here, as big days for Justin Herbert, Keenan Allen, and Mike Williams would obviously work well with a Chargers win. Let’s break down each of the 4 legs one by one.

Los Angeles Chargers -3 (-110)

Los Angeles is coming off a 20-16 victory at Washington in Week 1. Although that wasn’t exactly domination, any road win in the NFL is a good one, especially over a playoff team from a year ago. It should also be noted that 20-16 hardly tells the real story. The Chargers were by far the better team; they ran 78 total plays to the Football Team’s 49, won the time-of-possession battle 36:03 to 23:47, and gained 424 yards to TWFT’s 259. A couple of turnovers and twice settling for chip-shot field goals instead of touchdowns prevented that game from being a bigger blowout. As for Dallas, consecutive road games against strong competition is a rough way to start the season from a schedule standpoint. The Cowboys are 3-8 ATS in their last 11 on the road, while the Chargers are 5-0 ATS in their last five overall.

Justin Herbert 302.5 passing yards (-113)

Herbert should have no trouble building on his solid Week 1 performance, this time at the expense of a dreadful Dallas defense. Although the Cowboys did relatively well to test Tampa Bay in a 31-29 thriller last Thursday night, their defense sat around and watched Tom Brady throw for 379 yards and 4 touchdowns. In LA’s win over the Football Team last weekend, Herbert completed 31 of 47 attempts for 337 yards. It’s safe to say that TWFT’s defense is better than Dallas’ defense, too.

Keenan Allen over 77.5 receiving yards (-113)

That you can get this SGP at almost +1000 odds when all of the plays are extremely correlated is a borderline steal. Obviously if Herbert goes well into the 300-yard area then chances are good his favorite receivers are racking up yards themselves. Allen was the main target in Week 1, as he caught 9 of 13 passes directed his way for 100 yards. Don’t be surprised if her carves up the Dallas secondary.

Mike Williams over 56.5 receiving yards (-113)

Williams had a great day, too, at Washington’s expense. He was targeted 12 times and turned those opportunities into 8 receptions for 82 yards and a touchdown. Look for Herbert to spread the wealth around once again, especially to his two primary WRs. And when you are facing the Cowboys, there is plenty of wealth to go around.
