The Chargers escaped with a narrow 16-13 victory over the Bengals this past Sunday and are set to face their toughest test of the year against their divisional rival and the reigning Super Bowl Champion Kansas City Chiefs.
According to the folks at BetMGM, the Chiefs are opening as -8.5-point favorites against the Bolts, which is the second-largest spread in this week’s slate, just behind Tampa Bay being -9.5-point favorites over the Carolina Panthers. The over/under for Chargers-Chiefs is set at 47.5.
Now I’m not the biggest sports bettor, but I’m not touching this and I advise you all to do the same.
Let’s just hope for the best and cross our fingers that the offense shows some more life in their first game inside SoFi Stadium.
