1 unit on Los Angeles +7 (-113) (risk 1 to return 1.88) RESULT: LOSS
The Los Angeles Chargers got their first win in a 31-20 victory at Buffalo as Melvin Gordon scored three touchdowns, one rushing and two pass receptions.QB Philip Rivers was 23-for-27 passing for 256 yards and three touchdowns. Gordon is expected to play this week after enduring a minor upper-body injury. The Chargers now are 15-7-1 ATS their last 23 road games and the Rams are 5-11-1 ATS their last 17 home contests. Also, the Rams are 1-6 ATS the last seven years in Week 3. The Chargers got 77 yards on 11 carries from Austin Ekeler and receiver Mike Williams caught three passes for 48 yards while Keenan Allen had six receptions for 67 yards. The emerging young talent on offense is a good sign for the Chargers and the defense held the Bills to 293 total yards. The Rams shut out the weak Arizona Cardinals 34-0 as Todd Gurley ran for three touchdowns and Jared Goff threw for 354 yards. The Chargers have enough talent on both sides of the ball to keep this one close and they looked much improved from their season-opening game against Kansas City. Grab the points with the Chargers.
