Why bet on Seattle versus Los Angeles Chargers?

For the first time this season, Seattle won a game with their defense. In NFL Week 1, the Seahawks upset the Denver Broncos 19-17. But although the Hawks held Denver to 17 points, it turns out the Broncos’ offense is horrible.

Versus Arizona last Sunday, Seattle held the Cardinals to 9 points. NFL handicappers know Geno Smith and Seattle’s offense can light up the scoreboard. If the defense has caught up to the offense, the rest of the league had better watch out.

Why bet on Los Angeles Chargers versus Seattle?

On the surface, it doesn’t look as if the Chargers played a great game versus the Denver Broncos in the overtime victory this past Monday night. Denver held the Bolts to 19 points, almost 4 points under the Chargers’ season average. 

A closer look, though, reveals LAC played a great game. Not only did the Chargers win but they held a great defense to a couple of sacks without starting left tackle Rashawn Slater. Los Angeles is one of the AFC’s best. So Seattle should struggle on Sunday.

Seattle Seahawks at Los Angeles Chargers Final Betting Prediction

The Bolts are the better overall team. In addition, wide receiver Keenan Allen should return, which bolsters the Chargers chances to cover the spread.

Quarterback Justin Herbert and Keenan Allen have a great rapport. The Bolts will score more in this game, which also adds to the Chargers will cover thesis.

But although Los Angeles has a lot of things in their favor, Seattle is a tough team. The Seahawks play hard and Geno Smith two of the NFC’s best wide receivers, Tyler Lockett and DK Metcalf. 

This should be a high-scoring game. So consider backing over the total. When it comes to the spread, the Seahawks offense can hang with the Bolts offense. Taking the points makes sense.
