Chargers vs Eagles Prediction

The Chargers are coming into this game as a 2 point favorite with the current betting odds according to Draftkings Sportsbook. The Chargers came out of their bye and lost their game last week to the Patriots but the Patriots are starting to round themselves into a very good team with Mac Jones leading the charge. The Eagles, on the other hand, are coming off of a massive win where they scored 44 points but that was against the winless Lions who seem to be getting worse as the weeks go on. The Chargers are due for a big bounce back game here against an Eagles team that they are much better than on both sides of the ball. The best bet to place in this game is on the Chargers to cover the spread here as they will win big.
