Green Bay Packers vs Los Angeles Chargers : Week 9 of the NFL season is here and one of the most interesting matchups of the week takes place in LA as the Chargers host the red hot Green Bay Packers. LA may be home this week, but their stadium will be filled with 90% Packers fans which will make this a difficult take for the Chargers.
The Green Bay Packers currently occupy the top spot in the NFC North, but are just one game ahead of second place Minnesota. Green Bay is also right in the thick of things for the top seed in the NFC as they are just 1 game back of the 8-0 San Francisco 49ers. The Los Chargers sit in third place in the AFC West, but are just two games back of first place Kansas City. Overall, in the AFC, the Chargers are the 11th seed, but are just two games back of the 6th seed Houston Texans.
Below is my best bet for the Green Bay Packers at the Los Angeles Chargers. All lines are from FanDuel Sportsbook
Green Bay Packers (-3.5) at Los Angeles Chargers: O/U 48.5 points scored (-110/-110)
Aaron Rodgers, and the Green Bay Packers, put on another show last week as they came away with a 31-24 win over the Kansas City Chiefs last weekend. Aaron Jones had 159 receiving yards, 67 rushing yards and two touchdowns to lead the Packers to a nice comeback win on Sunday night. Green Bay has now won four straight games, having scored 20+ points in three of those games, and look to be a legit Super Bowl contender. The Packers are 6-2 ATS and the over has hit in five of their eight games this season.
The Los Angeles Chargers host the Green Bay Packers in Week 9 in another “home” game that is going to be packed with opposing fans.
The Los Angeles Chargers never really have any home games, that has been a running joke since the team moved to LA and lost a lot of its fanbase. However, it has never been worse than when the team hosted the Pittsburgh Steelers on Sunday Night Football.
The stadium was 90 percent Steeler fans and that is likely going to be the case again this Sunday in Week 9. Although instead of black and yellow and terrible towels it is going to be green and yellow and cheeseheads.
The Los Angeles Chargers host the Green Bay Packers a week after a lucky win over the Chicago Bears and cannot afford to lose. The Packers are tough competition but if the Chargers want any chance of an improbable playoff run then they cannot lose many more games.
This is about as much of a must-win as a team can have in Week 9. Here is how the LA Sports Hub staff sees it going down.
