2 units on Los Angeles -3 (-109) (risk 2 to return 2) RESULT: LOSS
The December version of the Chargers is akin to Reggie Jackson in baseball. Jackson was Mr. October and the Chargers own the month of December. The Redskins dropped their last two in big division rival games by a combined deficit of 62-12. If they were a no show in two big games vs. hated division rivals at home, what do they have to bring to the table for a week 17 road contest vs. an AFC team? My projection is nothing! The Chargers have too much mojo working now in a 10-game winning streak to fall and close on a negative here. They want to keep their momemtum and Norv Turner said this week his team is preparing like any other game and that his starters will play. While there are no question marks on this team mentally or physically, they don't need to create any here, so I expect them to take care of business. The Chargers have carved up poor pass defenses (those allowing over 60% completions). They are 17-7 ATS the last three seasons vs. such teams including 14-1 ATS in late-season play! The Skins 3-10-2 ATS mark after falling at home by 10+ sets the stage, and the Bolts’ 21-7 ATS mark as a favorite of 3.5-10 at home brings the curtain down! I'm on the Chargers here.
