The Chargers were embarrassed at home last week against the Patriots being shut out 45-0 and Special Teams which has been poor all season really cost them against such a disciplined Patriots side. Rookie QB, Justin Herbert found out what it’s like to go up against a Bill Belichick defense as he threw 2 INT’s.
The Falcons lost to the Saints for the second time in three weeks but have improved no end since Raheem Morris took over from Dan Quinn. Their offense is an explosive unit but will miss Julio Jones for this contest.
I had something all prepared for my best bet here as teams coming off of a shut out like the Chargers are are 19-6 ATS as underdogs but since I had planned to take the Chargers ATS that number has moved from +3 points to -1.5! So much money went on the Chargers that it’s swung them from 3 point dogs to over 1 point favourites! I had the Falcons winning the game but the Chargers covering so if you’re offering me better than even money on a Falcons win, I’m gonna take it!
PREDICTION: FALCONS 31 – 30 CHARGERS
BEST BET: FALCONS to win outright – 21/20 with BET365. 0.5 point bet.
