Los Angeles at Chicago

3 units on Los Angeles +3 (-110) (risk 3 to return 5.73) RESULT: LOSS
Chicago last week gave us a glimpse of the value they are putting on winning this preseason. They gave up 28 points to the 49ers. In contrast, San Diego held Green Bay to 3 points. They let QB Phillip Rivers get plenty of playing time which he needs as the new starter. He was 15 for 21 playing the entire first half. He looked great. I look forward to seeing what he can do this week against the Chicago defense. I expect him to again see ample playing time and more than will Rex Grossman. San Diego has a bit of momentum and I like them getting points here.
