Betting on the Los Angeles Chargers (2-4)

Although Melvin Gordon is back for the Chargers, the team’s run game hasn’t exactly been better since. In the Chargers’ 24-17 home loss to the Pittsburgh Steelers, Gordon only had 18 rushing yards on eight carries, while Austin Ekeler had 14 rushing yards on five carries. Overall, the team only had 32 rushing yards. Philip Rivers had 320 passing yards and two touchdowns, but also had two interceptions. Errors are keeping the Chargers’ offense from getting lift-off. That being said, the return of tight end Hunter Henry gave LA’s offense a jolt. Henry paced the Chargers in the Steelers game with 100 receiving yards and two targets. Keenan Allen was held by the Steelers down to just 33 receiving yards on two catches, but Henry’s presence going forward should get the wide receiver bigger spaces to operate downfield.

The Chargers are 8-2 against the spread (ATS) in their last 10 road games.

Betting on the Tennessee Titans (2-4)

How bad have things gone for the Titans? Well, let’s just say they’ve reached the point of deciding to bench Marcus Mariota for…drum roll…Ryan Tannehill. The Titans could not get anything going on offense in last week’s 16-0 shutout loss on the road to the Denver Broncos, forcing head coach Mike Vrabel to bench Mariota for Tannehill. On Tuesday, it was reported that the Titans will start Tannehill against the Chargers, which may or may not be an indication that Tennessee is no longer interested in keeping Mariota for the long haul.  Tannehill had 144 passing yards and an interception on 13-of-16 completions against the Broncos, though, a more defined role could result in a much better performance. The Titans are allowing just 15.3 points per game – fifth-best in the NFL.

The under is 2-0 in the Titans’ last two home games.

Writer’s Prediction

The Chargers win, 27-23.
