The Los Angeles Chargers will be fresh off a bye when they meet the Atlanta Falcons in Georgia in Week 9.

Meanwhile, the Falcons are back to .500 after winning over the Carolina Panthers last Sunday, 37-34, in a game that went to overtime. Will the Chargers get back in the win column by beating Atlanta? Or will the Falcons win back-to-back and secure further their seat atop the NFC South division? Check out our preview of this Chargers vs Falcons game in Week 9 of the 2022 NFL regular season.
Betting Preview for the Los Angeles Chargers vs Atlanta Falcons Week 9 Game on November 6, 2022
Where: Mercedes-Benz Stadium, Atlanta, Georgia
When: Sunday, November 6, 2022, 1:00 PM ET
TV Broadcast: FOX
Betting on the Los Angeles Chargers (-3.0)
Regular Season Record: 4-3
The Chargers’ defense cracked against Seattle, with Seahawks running back rushing for 167 yards and two touchdowns in that contest. With a full week of extra rest, the Chargers should be healthier and more prepared defensively to take on an Atlanta team that is heavy on the rush and light on the ground. At the same time, the Falcons’ defense is also leaky, so if this game turns out to be a high-scoring one, the Chargers should have the advantage given their depth offensively, even if they miss the services of Mike Williams (ankle). Keenan is back and healthy, so Justin Herbert will have a reliable target downfield versus Atlanta, which is last in the league against the pass.
The Chargers are 4-1 against the spread in their last five Week 9 outings.
Betting on the Atlanta Falcons (+3.0)
Regular Season Record: 4-4
How about them Falcons, huh? The Falcons are suddenly on top of the NFC South with a 4-4 record. Marcus Mariota has been decent enough for the Falcons to be that successful this far into the season. Mariota passed for 253 yards and three touchdowns against two interceptions on 20/28 completions against the Panthers. He also rushed for 43 yards on six carries. Atlanta’s ground attack could find success against Los Angeles. For one, the Chargers are just 27th in the NFL with 137.6 rushing yards allowed per game. As mentioned earlier, Kenneth Walker took the Chargers’ run defense to the woodshed in Week 7.
The Falcons are 6-2 against the spread in their last eight games overall.
The Chargers win, 30-21.
