Los Angeles at Indianapolis

1.5 units on Los Angeles +3 (-120) (risk 1.5 to return 2.75) RESULT: LOSS
The San Diego Chargers have ruled the roost vs. Indianapolis over the years. They own a 12-5 straight-up mark against them to go along with a 14-3 ATS mark, and four of the five losses have come by a scant five points or less. Most thought the Chargers would suffer greatly offensively last week after their best receiver Keenan Allen went down, but before you could blink they were piling it on vastly improved jags, 35-0 after three quarters. That was without the services of Danny Woodhead as well who landed on the IR with a knee injury suffered in their last game. San Diego won just four games last season, but closed covering their last four, and with their first two being covered, they have run the ATS winning streak to six, and are still under the radar. The Colts allowed 39 to the Lions and 34 to the Broncos to open the season. They allowed 27 points or more in seven of their games last season, and not much appears to have changed. The Colts are now a dismal 2-7 straight-up in Andrew Luck's last seven starts, and QB Phillip Rivers has owned the road as a dog, where he is 20-11 ATS in his career, and 5-1 SU and ATS vs. Indianapolis. San Diego has rushed for 150+ in their first two games, and the Colts have allowed an average of 125 rushing yards so far, while the defense has been burned for 400+ yards in each of their first two contests. The Chargers own seven straight road covers, while Indy has posted six straight ATS losses after allowing 30+ in their previous game. Take San Diego.
