How To Bet Ravens Chargers – San Diego Sinks Lower In Standings
Baltimore Ravens @ San Diego Chargers – Sunday November 25, 2012 4:05PM EST
The NFL betting experts are trying not to gang up on the San Diego Chargers, but the Chargers are making it too easy. At 4-6, the Chargers is still in second place in the AFC West, but the gap between San Diego and Denver is getting much wider each week. San Diego has lost its last two games in a row and there does not look like any way that the team is going to be able to compete against playoff caliber teams. What makes things worse for San Diego is that its struggling offense has to deal with a Baltimore defense that is making due without Ray Lewis rather nicely.
The Baltimore Ravens really thought it was in trouble when it lost cornerback LaDarius Webb and linebacker Ray Lewis to injury in the same season. The sport betting world really thought that Baltimore would be in trouble this week when it was announced that safety Ed Reed would be suspended for one game for repeated helmet to helmet violations. But the Reed suspension was overturned and the Ravens roll into San Diego with the same defense that has managed to find a way to be dominant, even without Webb and Lewis. The Ravens is 7-1 in the conference, and that can only mean bad things for the Chargers.
Why the Chargers Will Win
The San Diego Chargers is not a bad football team. But it just seems like the team is never prepared to play in tough games and it cannot execute its game plan when it really counts. The football betting world saw examples of how bad things can get for the Chargers when San Diego lost to the New Orleans Saints in week five by a score of 31-24. Prior to that game, the Saints were winless on the season. The Chargers have the talent to beat the Ravens, but that talent needs to be on the same page if San Diego hopes to win.
Why the Ravens Will Win
The big surprise for the Ravens this season has been the inconsistency of its offense. One week, the Baltimore offense is dominating and the reason that the team wins a game. The next week, the offense needs to get carried by the defense to a win. This is the perfect game for quarterback Joe Flacco and his offense to get on the same page because the San Diego defense has been out of sync all season long.
The Bottom Line
San Diego is going to have to face the facts that it is time for a change at head coach. Norv Turner has not been able to get the most out of this talented roster, and this game will be no exception. This will be another frustrating week for Chargers’ fans.
Pick: Baltimore Ravens
