Why Bet The San Diego Chargers To Beat The Texans
The Chargers are coming off a bye week. They are 4-6 SU and 6-4 ATS this season. San Diego averages 29.0 points per game (2nd) and give up 27.8 points per game (28th).
San Diego averages 275.1 passing yards per game (5th). QB Philip Rivers (2886 yards, 20 TDs & 11 INTs) had an unusual meltdown the last time he stepped on the field. Rivers threw three fourth-quarter interceptions in the 31-24 loss to the Miami Dolphins two weeks ago. WR Tyrell Williams (43 rec, 720 yards, 4 TDs) leads the team in receptions, yards, and touchdowns. The Chargers average 103.0 rushing yards per game (18th). RB Melvin Gordon (217 car, 838 yards, 9 TDs) is averaging 3.9 yards per carry.
The Chargers have the 20th-ranked total defense in the NFL. San Diego allows 275.0 passing yards per game (28th) and 87.4 rushing yards per game (5th). Jatavis Brown has 54 tackles, and Melvin Ingram has 6.0 sacks.
Why Bet The Houston Texans To Beat The Chargers
The Houston Texans lead the AFC South with a 6-4 record SU and 5-4-1 ATS. They are coming off a 27-20 loss to the Oakland Raiders in Mexico City. They average 18.1 points per game (28th) and allow 21.5 points per game (12th).
The Texans average 191.6 passing yards per game (30th). QB Brock Osweiler (2061 yards, 12 TDs & 10 INTs) has been more than just disappointing this season. At this point, Houston needs to evaluate if he is worth the $72M guaranteed contract they gave him in the offseason. Osweiler’s struggles extend to WR DeAndre Hopkins (50 rec, 540 yards, 3 TDs). Hopkins hasn’t caught a touchdown pass in five weeks. Houston averages 121.7 rushing yards per game (4th). RB Lamar Miller (192 car, 524 yards, 3 TDs) had a good game in Mexico. Miller went 104 yards and a touchdown on 24 carries.
"I think we played good football, offensively," Osweiler said. "There was certainly a couple of mistakes, my turnover late in the second quarter. That’s something I can’t do. … We certainly need to capitalize on touchdowns when we get in the red area. But I think overall, we played a much better offensive game this week, and I think we improved."
Houston has the 5th-ranked total defense in the NFL. They give up 207.0 passing yards per game (4th) and 111.6 rushing yards per game (21st). Benardrick McKinney has 89 tackles, and Whitney Mercilus has 4.5 sacks.
