The San Francisco 49ers host the LA Chargers on Sunday Night Football in Week 10 in a battle of two teams that have dealt with horrible injury luck this season. However, while the Bolts are still dealing with a laundry list of injuries, the 49ers have a long list of players returning in this game.
The Chargers are currently 7.5-point underdogs (odds subject to change after time of publication) and we gave our prediction both against the spread and the point total. Not only that but we have also given out a list of three great prop bets that you could target to win some money while watching Sunday Night Football.

Chargers vs 49ers matchup history:
The Chargers and 49ers have only played each other 15 times in the regular season. The Chargers have the advantage in the head-to-head matchup, winning eight of those 15. However, the 49ers have the biggest possible win over the Chargers, as they defeated the Bolts in the franchise's only trip to the Super Bowl.
The Bolts have dominated the matchup in recent memory, though. Los Angeles is currently riding a five-game winning streak (two wins in overtime), dating back to 2002. The 49ers have not beaten the Chargers since 2000.
