Cowboys vs Rams Prediction, Odds & Betting Trends for NFL Week 5 Game on FanDuel Sportsbook
Cowboys vs Rams Week 5 Game Info
Week 5 of the 2022 NFL season includes a showdown between the Dallas Cowboys and Los Angeles Rams. No Dak Prescott? No problem for the Cooper Rush-led Cowboys, who won their third straight win following their 25-10 victory against the Washington Commanders.
Meanwhile, the Rams have yet to play their Week 4 matchup against the San Francisco 49ers at the time of writing. Regardless of the outcome, though, you can bet that the defending Super Bowl champions will pose a tough challenge after winning 16 of their last 22 home games.

Cowboys vs Rams Prediction & Pick
The Rams have gotten the better of the Cowboys in recent history, winning three of the last four meetings. Furthermore, Dallas hasn't even beaten their upcoming foe on the road since September 2014.
Prescott remains out for this contest, meaning another week of Rush under center for the Cowboys. There's also the fact that Dallas' offense hasn't looked that impressive this season, averaging the fifth-fewest points (17.8), whereas Los Angeles has scored 30-plus points in back-to-back games heading into Week 4.
The Rams have rebounded quite well since their Week 1 loss to the Buffalo Bills. If they can continue that momentum with another win over the 49ers, the Cowboys could be in some real trouble come Sunday.
Final Score Prediction: Rams: 26 | Cowboys: 19

Cowboys vs Rams Best Bet
Even if I think the Rams will win, the Cowboys have shown enough grit that they should keep it within a score or two throughout the contest. Taking Los Angeles on the spread is a good option, but backing the Rams to win by 1-to-13 points at +135 odds is more playable.
Bet: Rams Winning Margin — 1 to 13 Points (+135)
