Los Angeles at Washington

Sunday 09/12 01:00 PM Eastern

1 unit on Los Angeles +1.5 (-111) (risk 1 to return 1.9)  RESULT: win

1 unit on Game Total UNDER 44.5 -105 (risk 1 to return 1.95)  RESULT: win

Los Angeles had a knack for losing close games under former coach Anthony Lynn, so he was fired and Brandon Staley, the Rams' former defensive coordinator, was hired to reverse that trend. Quarterback Justin Herbert threw for 4,336 yards and 31 touchdowns as a rookie, and his prospects are even brighter this year as the Chargers upgraded the offensive line, signing center Corey Linsley along with Matt Feiler and drafting tackle Rashawn Slater. The defense obviously will be in good hands with Staley at the helm, and he's known for a lot of deception along with blitzes and twists. The Rams led the league in points and yards allowed in 2020 and were among the leaders in interceptions with Staley coaching them. The Chargers did win their final four games, but it wasn't enough to save Lynn's job. Washington lost three of its last four games, including to Tampa Bay in the playoffs, but it was able to win the title in the weak NFC East. Ron Rivera's team started 1-5 last year, and the defense might have to carry the team again, although Ryan Fitzpatrick is the new quarterback and playing for his ninth team, nothing is guaranteed in his checkered career. The Chargers are 15-7-2 ATS their past 24 road games and 6-0 UNDER its last six September games. Also, Washington has stayed UNDER six of its last seven home games. Take the Chargers and UNDER.
