Chargers Poised to Reverse Hard Luck Against Winless Saints

The San Diego Chargers will try to bounce back from a heartbreaking 26-22 loss to Indianapolis as 1.5-point road underdogs when they return home on Sunday to take on the New Orleans Saints in an NFL Week 4 matchup at Qualcomm Stadium.

Shark Bites
  • The Chargers are 2-10 SU in their last 12 games after losing the previous game in a matchup.
  • The total has gone UNDER in the Saints' last four games on the road.
  • The Saints are 6-2 SU in their last eight games in Week 4.

With their loss to the Colts, the Chargers have now failed to record consecutive straight-up wins since November 2014. San Diego bounced back from a season-opening 33-27 overtime loss in Kansas City with a crushing 38-14 win over Jacksonville 3-point chalk before taking Indianapolis the distance in last week's loss.

Despite going a meager 3-6 SU in their past nine, San Diego has regularly paid out at the sportsbooks, with against the spread wins in seven of those contests, but has lost three of four to the Saints, SU and against the spread.

The Saints allowed four first-half touchdowns on Monday in their 45-32 loss to Atlanta as 3-point home chalk, dropping them to 0-3 SU, 1-2 ATS, on the season. New Orleans has now surrendered 27 or more points and seen the point total finish OVER in eight of their past 12, but has averaged just 15.4 ppg over their past five road dates.
