Online NFL Betting Odds:
Los Angeles Chargers
The Chargers are 1-2 so far in this year’s preseason. Luckily for Los Angeles, San Francisco is also 1-2 in the preseason. And even though they’ll be playing in San Francisco, this should be very much a home game for the Chargers. Coming off a 9-7 season, Los Angeles is hopeful that they can build on last year’s success and make a push for the postseason. It’s been four seasons since the Chargers have made the playoffs. Considering that Philip Rivers is getting older each season, the franchise needs to get the most out of these remaining years. Especially since Eli Manning has already won two Super Bowls without the Chargers.
Players to Watch: Philip Rivers (4,515 passing yards, 28 TD, 10 INT), Melvin Gordon (1,105 rushing yards, 8 TD, 1 F), and Keenan Allen (1,393 receiving yards, 6 TD, 102 REC).
San Francisco 49ers
The 49ers haven’t had much luck in the preseason. However, that hasn’t stopped them from looking ahead to 2018 and expecting great things. The biggest reason for their hopefulness is undoubtedly Jimmy Garoppolo. Jimmy G came to San Francisco last season and was able to take a team that had won a single game all year long and lead them to a 5-0 finish. It was unexpected to say the least and has forced many NFL pundits to favor Garoppolo this upcoming season. However, Jimmy G has yet to prove himself for an entire season. And now that defenses have more tape to prepare with, Garoppolo might not find quarterbacking in the NFL as easy as he did last year.
Players to Watch: Jimmy Garoppolo (1,560 passing yards, 7 TD, 5 INT), CJ Beathard (136 rushing yards, 3 TD, 0 F), and Marquise Goodwin (962 receiving yards, 2 TD, 56 REC).
