San Diego Chargers vs. Indianapolis Colts
Play on: Chargers +2½
The 1-1 San Diego Chargers will visit the winless Indianapolis Colts on Sunday afternoon, and this looks like a great spot to take the points on the visitors.
The Colts are struggling big time on the defensive side of the ball as they’ve surrendered 34 and 39 points in defeats to Detroit and Denver to start the season They’re 0-6 ATS in their last six games after allowing more than 30 points in their previous game and 1-7 ATS in the last eight meetings with the Chargers.
San Diego’s QB Philip Rivers threw for four TDs in last week’s 38-14 blowout win against Jacksonville and he has a 70.0% completion rate with his passes on the season, a number which can be compared to Andrew Luck’s 58.8 percent. Luck completed only 21 of 40 attempts for 197 yards with one TD and one INT against Denver last week, and running back Frank Gore is averaging just 3.8 yards per carry.
The Colts need their offense to bail out their subpar D, and that’s not happening at the moment. Take the points on the Chargers, but we might not even need them as San Diego has a great chance to win this game outright.
