Latest Odds : LAC -3 Total 44.5
The Saints will face the Chargers in this game. However, the Saints are coming into this game after losing to the Vikings by a score of 34-25. Granted it is only the preseason, but the fact that the Saints backups were unable to really do much against the Vikings backups and it definitely makes it a little bit harder to see the Saints defense as a threat.
Teddy Bridgewater did come back and he did look impressive for the Saints in the game. Bridgewater was able to go 14-19 with 134 yards and a touchdown in the game. Running back Taysom Hill carried the ball 6 times for 45 yards in the game.
The Chargers were able to keep their opening game close, but the starters for the Chargers were not able to really do much against Arizona. However, that was not the point as the starters only got one series under their belt before they had to go onto the bench and rest, but even then the Chargers definitely proved they have quite a bit of depth on their roster.
Easton Stick was the quarterback who managed to lead the Chargers, but he was also the leading rusher for the team. Stick managed to go 7-11 with 78 yards and a pick. When it came to rushing he carried the ball 2 times or 51 yards and a score.

Free Betting Pick: Los Angeles Chargers -3
The Chargers have a decent amount of depth and that will help the team out in this game here. However, what else will help the Chargers out is the fact that Stick is able to scramble if he needs to and is facing a Saints team that is older and not as youthful as what it once was. Final Score, Los Angeles Chargers win and cover ATS 35-28.
