Since the Patriots don’t have quarterback Tom Brady due to injury, this game has lost a little of its luster but San Diego won’t care, as they want revenge from the last two years when they lost in the playoffs to the Patriots. NFL betting numbers have the Chargers as solid home favorites in this matchup.
Football betting stats show that the Patriots have won 8 of the last 10 games between the two teams. New England is 7-3 against the football betting number in those games. Many gamblers are throwing out previous football betting stats on New England since they are without Brady. The Patriots definitely look beatable with Matt Cassel at quarterback instead of Brady according to NFL betting experts. The Chargers have a big offensive edge according to football betting experts with quarterback Phillip Rivers and running back LaDainian Tomlinson.
The key for San Diego according to football betting experts will be to get pressure on Cassel. He has not shown the ability to handle pressure so it will be up to a San Diego defense without Shawne Merriman to find a way to pressure him. The Chargers defense has been vulnerable this season but Cassel may not have the experience to take advantage according to football betting experts.
NFL betting stats show that the two teams have only met at San Diego twice in the last 11 years. The Chargers are 1-1 in those games but 2-0 versus the football betting pointspread. San Diego has been a very good home favorite in recent years according to football betting stats. They have hit over 60% of the time in that role since 2005 according to football betting stats.
Looking at football betting stats for the total we see that the Patriots have been a pretty good over team on the road in recent seasons, but again, that was with Brady at the helm. Free NFL odds for Week 6 numbers have the Chargers as the popular NFL betting selection in this game.
