SD vs BAL Week 8 Odds Preview

San Diego Chargers Philip Rivers

Are the San Diego Chargers (2-5 SU) and Baltimore Ravens (1-6 SU) as bad as their records indicate? Many pundits around the NFL would argue that’s not the case, but the fact is both teams have had horrendous starts to the NFL season and could very likely be in danger of throwing away the year if they don’t manage to string together some wins fast.

Shark Bites
  • The Ravens are 10-1 SU in their last 11 games at home in November.
  • The total has gone over in six of the Chargers' last eight games on the road in November.
  • The Chargers are 2-7 ATS in their last nine games in November.

Heartbreak has been a common theme for Ravens fans this year. Despite having a six in the loss column, every game Baltimore has participated in this year has been decided by a touchdown or less. Joe Flacco and company aren’t any better against the spread, posting a 1-5 ATS ATS record through six games.

San Diego hasn’t gotten it going either and are just 2-5 ATS despite ranking first in the league in total offense and first in passing yards.
