Chargers vs Titans betting odds – No stopping Chargers in December

Posted by Stan Simmons on 12/21/2009 4:22:05 PM

NFL Odds: Pick Chargers +3


The Chargers vs Titans betting odds will set up a key AFC matchup this week but only one team will have something to play for. With their win last Sunday, the Chargers have locked up the No. 2 seed in the AFC and can’t move up or down. Meanwhile, the Titans are still on the outside of the playoffs look in at the No. 11 seed, but are just one game behind both the Denver Broncos and Baltimore Ravens. Online betting cappers know that motivation might lie with the Titans but ‘need to win’ doesn’t mean ‘will win’. Chargers are steamrolling everything in their sights right now.

Sportsbook Odds: Titans -3, O/U: 47


Chargers vs Titans betting odds: Chargers +3
WHAT: NFL betting
WHEN: Saturday December 25th at 4pm Pacific Time
WHERE: LP Field in Nashville, Tennessee
PICK: Chargers +3


What’s On The Line?
The Chargers have locked up the No. 2 seed in the AFC and they can’t move up or down, but that doesn’t mean that they don’t care about this game. The Chargers have won 17 straight games in December and have won nine straight overall this year. They would like to keep that momentum going into the playoffs.

For Tennessee, they are the No. 11 seed in the AFC but they are just one game behind the No. 5 and No. 6 seeds. Considering the Denver Broncos are a nine-point underdog in Philadelphia this week and the Baltimore Ravens are a 2.5-point underdog in Pittsburgh, the Titans could pull even with a win and some help.


Offensive Matchups: Chargers vs Titans betting odds
The Chargers offense is as hot as it gets right now. The running game is still spotty but with a passing game that incorporates Antonio Gates, Vincent Jackson and Philip Rivers – three players performing as good as anyone at their position – the Chargers are tough to stop. Sportsbook odds makers know that this is a team that believes it will win each and every week and this offense leads the way.

The Titans have also come to life under Vince Young and he’s no long just a running threat. Young actually has a bad hamstring and is doing far more damage with his arm. The passing is very functional with Young and the slew of young Titans wideouts. Combined with Chris Johnson, who is the best running back in the NFL, the Titans offense is far more potent than it was earlier in the year.


Betting Edge: Chargers


Defensive Matchups: Chargers vs Titans betting odds
NFL betting cappers know that the boiling point in this game will be Johnson versus the Chargers run defense. If the Chargers can slow him down and put the game in Young’s hands, they’ll have a better chance to win.

For Tennessee, their defense has to be a concern. The Titans blew an 18-point lead to Miami and was shredded by the Indianapolis Colts just two weeks prior. Against elite offense, this unit has been carved up. Their pass defense is ranked 31st in the NFL and last week, allowed Carson Palmer to throw for 300+ yards for the first time since 2007. They could be in for a long day.


Betting Edge: EVen


Notable Injuries: Colts vs Jaguars betting odds s
Both teams are relatively healthy for this contest.

Betting Edge: Even


Over/Under Picks: Chargers vs Titans betting odds
The Chargers are going to get their points on offense and considering their run defense gives up 4.4 yards per carry and is going up against Johnson, they are likely to allow their share of points too. Both teams could end up in the 30’s for this game.

Pick: Over 47


Outlook and Pick: Chargers vs Titans betting
The Titans have everything on the line here but the Chargers just don’t know how to lose nowadays. They are going to be loose and have fun, which is what they have been doing over the last two months. This game will be back and forth but you can’t bet against the Chargers right now.

STAN'S PICK: Chargers +3
