Why bet on Chargers versus 49ers?
In NFL Week 7, the Bolts lost to the Seattle Seahawks. It turns out that the Seahawks are one of the NFL’s top teams. Seattle has the NFC West lead and Geno Smith is playing great football.
After falling to the Hawks, the Chargers took week 8 off. Last Sunday, LAC struggled for most of the game, but when it mattered most, the Bolts stepped it up, beating the Atlanta Falcons 20-17 on the road.
The Chargers’ have grit. The team won’t quit. On paper, LAC shouldn’t win SU or cover ATS. But the Bolts’ toughness could carry them through to at least a cover victory.

Los Angeles Chargers at San Francisco 49ers Final Betting Prediction
7 points is a lot because the Bolts are a quality squad. But Los Angeles got lucky against Atlanta last Sunday. The Falcons should have won the game outright or at least taken the contest into overtime.
On Sunday, Justin Herbert and his mates face the top-ranked defense in yards allowed per game. The 49ers hold opponents to less than 286 total yards per, which means Herbert and the Chargers’ O will struggle.
Also, the Bolts defense is going to have an impossible time stopping San Francisco running back Christian McCaffrey. The Chargers allow over 145 rushing yards per game.
McCaffrey averages 5.1 yards per carry and is a massive threat in the passing game. San Francisco should have no trouble covering the spread.
