The San Diego Chargers made a statement with a 31-0 beatdown of the AFC West-leading Kansas City Chiefs on Thursday. Now, they may need to run the table to have a chance of catching them for the division title. The Chargers are 7-6 heading in to their week 15 matchup against the San Francisco 49ers, one game back of 8-5 Kansas City, and will need a big performance in their home finale before finishing their season with consecutive road games.

The 49ers can keep their even slimmer playoff hopes alive with a win as well, as at 5-8 the boys from the Bay area can still catch the NFC West crown. The St. Louis Rams and Seattle Seahawks are currently tied for the division lead at 6-7, making for an exciting Thursday night clash featuring a pair of contenders from the weakest divisions in their respective conference.

Why To Bet On The 49ers

San Francisco has found its game on both sides of the ball over the past month, and rebounded from a tough 0-5 start that included losses to five teams currently in position to make the postseason, three of which were played on the road. The 49ers have won five of their last eight including three straight divisional games to keep their slim playoff hopes alive, and with running backs Brian Westbrook and Juan Dixon taking turns looking revitalized, there is still hope. Quarterback Alex Smith matched his career-high with three touchdown passes in last week’s 41-20 win over Seattle, and the 49ers’ defense suddenly looks like an impressive unit after forcing Seahawks’ quarterback Matt Hasselbeck in to four interceptions.

Why To Bet On The Chargers

A 28-13 loss to the Oakland Raiders was the team’s only hiccup on an otherwise perfect run through the past six weeks, and San Diego will need to keep it that way going forward to have any chance. The four-time reigning AFC West champions rank in the top-five on defense against both the run and pass, and are the league’s second-ranked passing offense, which makes it a surprise that they are in the position they are in. The Chargers will need to continue to execute on both sides of the ball, and make sure that they don’t turn the ball over to San Francisco the way that Seattle did last football betting online week.

How The Game Will Play Out

The Chargers will be playing on their own grass in December, which under head coach Norv Turner has meant that they should be heavily favored. San Diego is too good in too many categories on both sides of the ball not to be better than one game above .500, and will need to prove it when they take on San Francisco at home in a must-win game.
