Betting on the Los Angeles Chargers (5-2)
Tom Brady isn’t the only 36 or older quarterback doing fantastic things on the league today. There’s also Chargers quarterback Philip Rivers, who’s efficiently leading the Chargers’ offense that’s considered as one of the most dangerous in the league. The Chargers are eighth in the league in scoring with 27.9 points per game and that’s in no small part because of what Rivers is pulling off under center on a regular basis. Before heading into a Week 8 bye, Rivers toasted the Tennessee Titans’ defense at home, throwing for 306 yards and two touchdowns with zero interceptions on 19-of-26 completions. On the season, Rivers has 2,008 passing yards and 17 touchdowns against just three interceptions. The Seahawks’ pass defense is stout but their Legion of Boom days are now a thing of the past, so it’s foolish to write out Rivers’ chances of dissecting Seattle’s stop unit. After all, Rivers passed the test against the Los Angeles Rams’ brutal defense, albeit in a 35-23 loss in Week 3 in which he had 226 passing yards and two touchdowns with no interceptions.
The Chargers are 3-1 SU and 3-1 ATS in their last four road games.
Betting on the Seattle Seahawks (4-3)
Don’t look now, but the Seahawks are getting into a groove. They weren’t considered as a Super Bowl contender prior to this season, and while some would still say that Seattle remains that way, it’s hard to ignore the fact that the team has won four of its last five games. That stretch includes their 28-14 road victory over the Detroit Lions in Week 7. Against the Lions, it took quarterback Russell Wilson just 17 passes to get 248 passing yards and three touchdowns. He also didn’t throw an interception. The Seahawks also have one of the hottest wide receivers of late in the form of David Moore, who has scored four touchdowns in the last three games. He paced the team in the Detroit game with 97 receiving yards and a touchdown on four receptions and four targets. Going back to a close 33-31 loss to the Los Angeles Rams at home on Oct. 7, Moore even had two touchdown grabs to go with 38 receiving yards. On defense, Seattle can be intimidating, as it only allows 18.7 points per game – fourth fewest in the league – and 327.3 total yards per contest – fifth overall.
The Seahawks are 2-0 ATS in their last two home games.
Seattle wins, 26-23.
