Los Angeles at Tennessee

1.5 units on Los Angeles +3 (-110) (risk 1.5 to return 1.5)  RESULT: WIN

Not much was expected from either of these teams this season, but one thing is certain - one of these teams will come out of this game at 2-1 to start the season. San Diego has looked pretty good, and I believe them to be underrated this point. They gave Houston everything they could handle in week one. Without a pick-6 in the fourth quarter and a FG as time expired they might be 2-0 here. The big difference so far is a rejuvenated Philip Rivers. Rivers had a couple of bad years, where he threw a lot of passes to the wrong team. But so far this year under Mike McCoy, he has thrown just one interception compared to seven touchdown passes, and he has the Chargers' offense on the move. Yes, Malcom FLoyd is out but no worries as Rivers still has Eddie Royal, Danny Woodhead and Anontio Gates. The Titans also gave Houston all they could handle. And, their win against Pittsburgh looked big at the time, but the Steelers look like a team that is not going to win very many games this season. Tennessee has had all the breaks go their way in their first two games where they have a +4 turnover margin. But in spite of that, they have still outscored their two opponents by just one point - an ominous sign that they aren't as good as they have looked so far. The Chargers are 12-5 ATS in their last 17 vs. the AFC, and have covered four straight on the road going back to last year. San Diego has also owned this series at 8-0 ATS in the last eight meetings. Rivers is back and Jake Locker is not a match. Go with the Bolts here, buying to +3.5.
