The Los Angeles Chargers have more offensive talent than on the defensive side. In the 2022 preseason, the Chargers allowed an average of 29.3 points per game. The offense, though, scored 50 points in three games. The Rams haven't cared much about preseason under coach Sean McVay, losing five of their last six preseason tilts. A year ago, the defense surrendered 664 passing yards and 250 rushing yards in three exhibition contests. The Chargers are the newcomers to the L.A. area and are still trying to improve their fan base here. These teams met during the regular season last year with the Chargers winning 31-10, along with a 13-6 victory in Week 1 of the 2021 preseason when they met in August. Last year, they also met in Week 1 of the preseason in a high-scoring game, a 29-22 Rams win. Back the underdog in an offensive show. Play the Los Angeles Chargers + OVER the total.
