Chargers Host Dolphins in Los Angeles Home Debut

The Los Angeles Chargers make their home debut at StubHub Center on Sunday, taking on the Miami Dolphins in a Week 2 matchup. The Chargers are coming off a 24-21 loss to Denver as 3-point underdogs on Monday Night Football, while the Dolphins get into action after their Week 1 matchup with the Tampa Bay Buccaneers was postponed due to hurricane Irma.

  • The Chargers are 0-4 SU and ATS in their last four games in the late afternoon.
  • The total has gone OVER in 13 of the Dolphins’ last 18 games in September.

The Chargers opened the 2017 NFL season with their sixth straight outright loss, and have covered the spread in just two of their past 10 contests, including four straight SU and ATS losses on home turf, surrendering 28.75 points per game during that stretch.
