Dallas Cowboys vs. Los Angeles Rams – Week 5 Betting Preview


The Dallas Cowboys and Los Angeles Rams are set to meet in a marquee matchup on the Week 5 schedule. The Cowboys enter the game as the hotter team, even though they’ve been forced to roll with their backup quarterback since the season opener.


Dallas is undefeated with Cooper Rush as its starting quarterback. Not only has Rush gone 3-0 in 2022, but the Cowboys won Rush’s lone start last year. Dak Prescott is likely to miss at least one more week with a hand injury. The Rams are betting favorites at home, coming off their second loss of at least 15 points this season.
