Seahawks vs Chargers 2018 NFL Preseason Week 2 Spread & Pick

Written by on August 15, 2018

Philip Rivers and the Los Angeles Chargers are expecting to challenge for the AFC Championship in 2018 and rightfully so, seeing as how the Bolts now have a ton of talent on both sides of the ball and an experienced signal-caller that is still hungry to make his first Super Bowl appearance. Russell Wilson and the Seattle Seahawks are in a bit of a rebuild after seeing their five-year run of winning at least one playoff game come to an abrupt halt with last season’s missed postseason appearance. With both teams set to square off in their Week 2 preseason showdown on Saturday night, let’s find out which team is offering the best value against their scrimmage season betting odds.

49ers vs Texans 2018 NFL Preseason Week 2 Odds & Prediction

Why Bet On The Seattle Seahawks?

Why should you bet on the Seattle Seahawks? The best reason to bet on Seattle is that they’ve got a pretty solid backup quarterback and a head coach that loves to win in the preseason. While the Seahawks suffered a narrow 19-17 loss to Indianapolis in their preseason opener last week, veteran signal-caller Austin Davis is solid for a backup. He went 4 of 5 last week with no touchdowns and one interception while third-string signal-caller Alex McGough completed 10 of 13 passes for 48 yards. Running back Chris Carson led the Seahawks with 26 rushing yards on four attempts while tight end Nick Vannett caught two passes for 20 yards and one score. Starting quarterback Russell Wilson played one series for Seattle. Wilson was 4 of 5 for 43 yards and capped his only drive with a 5-yard touchdown pass to Vannett. Seattle rookie linebacker Shaquem Griffin played like a man possessed in making a team-high nine tackles. “It felt good to kind of get out there and get your feet wet and kind of get some hits in,” Griffin said. “I know the way the league works you don’t really get a chance to really tackle too much so to kind of get out there and get a few tackles in.”

Why Bet On The Los Angeles Chargers?

Why should you bet on the Los Angeles Chargers? Well, the best reason is that they’ve got a pair of backup quarterbacks in an all-out brawl for the No. 2 job behind Rivers, plus they’re playing at home. With rivers sitting out last week’s 24-17 preseason-opening loss against Arizona, veteran Geno Smith completed 14 of 23 passes for 218 yards with one touchdown and one interception while fellow backup Cardale Jones completed 6 of 12 passes for 50 yards. Roster hopeful Nick Shimonek completed 8 of 14 passes for 39 yards. Wide receiver Geremy Davis caught four passes for 88 yards and one score. Seahawks vs Chargers is scheduled for late Saturday Night. “At some point, I want to know what we have in Cardale Jones,” coach Anthony Lynn said. “He came into this league and he’s never really been given a legitimate opportunity, in my opinion. I want to give him that opportunity.”

Expert Prediction

With the Bolts playing at home and both, Geno Smith and Cardale Jones desperate to earn the No. 2 job behind Philip Rivers, I like Los Angeles to get the win in this affair, although I’m going to urge you to back Seattle to cover the spread as 3-point road dogs. The Seahawks are a near-perfect 5-1 SU in their last six road preseason games and 4-1 ATS in their last five scrimmage season road contests. Seattle is also 7-3 ATS over their last 10 preseason road games. While the Chargers have dropped three straight at home during the preseason, the Bolts are also 4-3 SU and 4-2-1 ATS over their last seven preseason home games. Score: Seahawks Seahawks 23 – Los Angeles Chargers 24
