**Odds as of 10/01**
Straight Up (Sebastian Morera)
The Chargers were supposed to beat the Panthers in Week 3 but came up short 21-16. Now they look to rebound against Tom Brady and the Buccaneers. Tampa Bay enters this Week 4 contest riding a two-game win streak after picking up victories over the Panthers and Broncos.
Defensively the Chargers have looked good this season. Specifically, they held the Chiefs to 23 points in their Week 2 loss. However, I don’t see a way Los Angeles can pull one over old Tom. Expect the Bucs to come out on top.
Against the Spread (Devlin Duckett)
The Los Angeles Chargers don’t know whether they’re coming or going under head coach Anthony Lynn. Rookie QB Justin Herbert has played pretty dang well in relief of proclaimed starter Tyrod Taylor, yet Lynn “hasn’t ruled Taylor out” to start Week 4. Way to toy with a young professional’s confidence, Anthony! You should be ashamed (fired).
This baffling announcement came on the heels of an embarrassing Chargers loss in Week 3. Los Angeles lost to the lowly Carolina Panthers 21-16, after turning the ball over four times. The Chargers defense allowed Teddy Bridgewater to complete 78% of his passes. Imagine what the GOAT can do with this banged up Bolts D. I like Tom Brady’s chances of posting big numbers in this spot.
The bottom line is that a disoriented Chargers team is walking into a Buccaneer buzzsaw this coming weekend. Expect a blowout at Raymond James Stadium.
Over/Under (Zack Robinson)
Is it Justin Herbert’s time in Los Angeles. The Chargers are 0-2 with him under center, but his numbers (330 passing yards per game) are not bad.
Nevertheless, the Chargers average only 17.3 points per game (fourth worst in the league) and the total has gone under in 4 of their last 5 games.
The Tampa Bay Buccaneers are looking better after their Week 1 loss against the Saints. WR’s Mike Evans and Chris Goodwin are developing a nice chemistry with Tom Brady.
The Bucs average 27.3 points per game and the total has gone over in 14 of their last 17 games. Go Over.
