Los Angeles Chargers
The Chargers charge into this Week 9 matchup sporting a 5-2 record that pegs them as the 2nd best team in the AFC West. Right now the division is led by the 7-1 Kansas City Chiefs, so the Chargers have some fierce competition keeping them from claiming the division. Granted, things could change in a couple of weeks but that doesn’t seem likely. Looking over the numbers, it’s clear this will be a great contest this Sunday. Right now the Chargers are scoring 27.9 per game and are giving up 23.3 to their opponents. For comparison, the Seahawks are scoring 24.4 each weekend while giving up 18.7 to their competitors. Clearly the Chargers have the better offense and it will be interesting to see how they fare against the Seahawks’ defense. In their last 10 meetings, the Seahawks have gotten the best of LA 6 games to 4. That, along with the Seahawks’ home field advantage, is the reason that Seattle is the online NFL betting favorite here.
Players to Watch: Philip Rivers (2,008 passing yards, 17 TD, 3 INT), Melvin Gordon (466 rushing yards, 6 TD, 0 F), and Keenan Allen (506 receiving yards, 1 TD, 41 REC).
The Hawks fly into this Week 9 contest sporting a 4-3 record that pegs them as the 2nd best team in the NFC West. With a 4-1 record in their last 5 games, things are starting to look up for Seattle. However, they didn’t exactly beat the best teams in the NFL in those 4 wins. On top of that, their lone loss in that stretch came against their biggest challenge, the LA Rams. Considering that the Chargers are a much better team than both Detroit and Oakland (Seattle’s two most recent wins), there’s no guarantee that Seattle gets the job done. Ultimately it will be up to Russell Wilson & Co. to keep pace with the Chargers’ high-paced offense. Considering that the Seahawks have scored 55 points in their last 2 games, and the fact that the Chargers’ aren’t that dominant defensively, Wilson shouldn’t have too hard of a problem getting the job done.
Players to Watch: Russell Wilson (1,556 passing yards, 16 TD, 4 INT), Chris Carson (457 rushing yards, 2 TD, 1 F), and Tyler Lockett (394 receiving yards, 6 TD, 25 REC).
