Los Angeles at Arizona

Thursday 08/08 10:00 PM Eastern

1.5 units on Los Angeles +126 (moneyline) (risk 1.5 to return 3.39)  RESULT: loss

1.5 units on Game Total OVER 36 -110 (risk 1.5 to return 2.86)  RESULT: loss

Los Angeles finished 12-4 and could be just as good or better this season as the Chargers retained most of their free agents and they still have Philip Rivers behind center and Ken Whisenhunt as offensive coordinator along with offensive-minded head coach Anthony Lynn. Melvin Gordon is a holdout, but Austin Ekeler and Justin Jackson have looked good in practice and the Chargers continue to have a solid offensive line. For the second year in a row, Arizona will break in a rookie quarterback and this time it's Heisman Trophy winner Kyler Murray. Brett Hundley is the backup and hasn't played since 2017 and the other QBs on the roster are Chad Kanoff and Drew Anderson and neither has played in the NFL. Backing up Rivers is Tyrod Taylor, who is with his fourth team and you'll remember he was the starter for the Buffalo Bills from 2015-17. Last year Taylor got into four games for the Cleveland Browns. Next in line is Cardale Jones, who played in one game in 2016 and none since and then rookie Easton Stick, a rookie out of North Dakota State. The Chargers went OVER in three of their four preseason games last year, including a 24-17 loss to the Cardinals and new Arizona coach Kliff Kingsbury was known for his high-flying offense at Texas Tech. No. 1 draft pick Murray notwithstanding, Arizona still has only one QB that has ever played a regular season game and L.A.'s running backs have something to prove. Play both the Chargers on the moneyline and the OVER.
