1 unit on Game Total OVER 48 -125 (risk 1 to return 1.8) RESULT: loss
The Los Angeles Chargers are projected to make a lot of noise in the AFC this season but have not looked the part through two games. They managed just 10 points on 424 total yards in a loss to Detroit last week, and barely got by the Colts without Andrew Luck. QB Phillip Rivers is off a big year, but he looks very frustrated right now. Over the years, Rivers seems to play better on the road, and in his last 40 home starts the Chargers are just 15-25 ATS. Houston is also 1-1 on the season and their QB, Deshaun Watson has earned a pedigree in his young career by winning on the road. Watson is 7-2 ATS on the road while leading his team to 29.2 points per game in the process, and that goes to 6-1 ATS as a road dog. Houston is a 58-yard FG make as time ran out vs. New Orleans from coming in 2-0 and have looked like the better team at this point. Back Houston. Also take the OVER. The Texans have averaged 5.8 yards per rush and Deshaun Watson is fifth in the leage in QBR behind only the likes of Dak Prescott, Lamar Jackson, Patrick Mahomes and Tom Brady. Meanwhile the Chargers are getting 5.7 per run as well as 8.5 yards per pass. LA has also amassed 859 yards in two games. Back the dog and the OVER in this one.
