NFL odds 2013, Cowboys vs. Chargers: Dallas favored on the road against San Diego

Jamie Squire

The Cowboys are 1-point favorites against their host in San Diego in Week 4.

The Cowboys will be on the road in Week 4 against the Chargers. San Diego comes into the contest at 1-2 and Dallas is 2-1. Despite the Chargers playing host, the Cowboys are 1-point favorites, according to Odds Shark.

The Cowboys are coming off an impressive 31-7 win over the Rams at home. Quarterback Tony Romo and wide receiver Dez Bryant have been nearly unstoppable this season, and they will test the Chargers cornerbacks on Sunday. The Dallas ground game has also been prominent with DeMarco Murray, who had 175 rushing yards and a touchdown against St. Louis. The Cowboys defense will be without pass rusher Anthony Spencer, who was lost for the season due to microfracture surgery on his left knee.

The Chargers are coming off a tight 20-17 loss against the Titans on the road. The Chargers have been solid on offense with a revitalized Phllip Rivers, but the San Diego defense has been up-and-down. To beat the Cowboys, the Chargers' secondary will need to show up.

The Chargers will host the Cowboys at 4:25 p.m. ET Sunday on FOX.
