This season will see a full slate of NFL games fall on Halloween, with every team hoping for a treat in the shape of a win. There are already a few teams that are having a bit of a nightmare season, and while neither of these teams fall into that category, you can bet that they would like their current records to be a little better than what they are. The Patriots are probably more in need of a win than the Chargers at the moment, but LA will not want to get into a losing skid after such a positive start to the season. This has all the makings of being one of the best games on the NFL odds and it is the Chargers who are in as a 4 ½ point home favorite. The point total for this one has been set at 49 ½.

Why bet on the New England Patriots
The New England Patriots have seen their rookie QB, Mac Jones, adapt to life as a pro quite nicely. Unfortunately, though, they still find themselves at 3-4 on the season and with an injury list that is getting ridiculously long. On the plus side, they are coming off an absolute hammering of the New York Jets, winning 54-13 last weekend. They have not yet won back-to-back games this season, so they will be hoping to change that this weekend. They have been historically good against the AFC West, going 8-3 in their last 11 meetings with teams in that division. The Patriots are also am impressive 6-0 SU and ATS in their last 6 meetings with the Chargers. In road games, New England has seen 5 of their last 6 go UNDER the point total.
Why bet on the LA Chargers
The Chargers come into this game on the heels of a bye week, where they will have had plenty of time to reflect on their 34-6 loss to the Baltimore Ravens in their last game. That loss killed a 3-game win streak and left the Chargers with a 4-2 record on the season. With Justin Herbert under center, the Chargers are beginning to look like a serious threat this season, but they need a win here to keep pace with the resurgent Las Vegas Raiders in the AFC West. We have already spoke about the Chargers troubles against the Patriots, but let’s not forget that those losses came when Brady was still ruling the roost in Foxboro. The Chargers are 8-2 SU and ATS in their last 10 games, so they have been a fantastic bet. The UNDER has been trending, with 5 of their last 6 games going that route.
Expert Pick and Final Score Prediction
If you look at the trends, the UNDER would appear to be the way to go with this game, but I am going against that and taking the OVER in a game that I like the Chargers to win and cover.
