Chargers, Giants fight for their first win of the season

The Los Angeles Chargers and New York Giants both enter October with an 0-4 SU record in 2017. Something has to give when these two teams clash in East Rutherford this Sunday.

Los Angeles is 0-9 SU and 0-8-1 ATS over its last nine games. Five of the Chargers’ last seven losses have come by a field goal or less, including last week’s 26-24 loss to Philadelphia.

New York is 0-5 SU over its last five games, but has picked up ATS wins in each of its last two games as an underdog. The Giants are 18-4 SU in their last 22 games as a favorite of a field goal or higher.
