The LA Chargers wrap up the preseason with the only game away from SoFi Stadium up in Seattle against the Seattle Seahawks. This is the first year in which there are only three preseason games so the Chargers will have a week off from game action before heading to Washington for Week 1.
The Chargers are 1-1 in the preseason with two low-scoring games under their belt. They defeated the LA Rams 13-6 in Week 1 of the preseason and lost 15-10 in Week 2 of the preseason against the San Francisco 49ers.
The Seahawks are 0-2 in the preseason and while wins and losses don't really matter in the preseason, we are still here to give you all of your betting information in case you want to tune up before betting in the regular season.
Chargers vs. Seahawks preseason odds for Week 3:
According to WynnBET, the LA Chargers enter this game as 5.5-point underdogs against the Seahawks. Seattle is a -260 favorite while the Chargers are a +200 underdog. The odds against the spread for both teams is -112.
Chargers injury report vs. Seahawks preseason Week 3:
The LA Chargers have been banged up but at the time of writing this there are no definitive players who are missing the game because of injury. Starters such as Justin Herbert, Keenan Allen, Derwin James (and more) are not playing simply out of precautionary reasons.
Justin Jackson missed the second preseason game with a groin injury and both Chris Rumph and Joe Reed were in walking boots. Nasir Adderley and Ryan Smith are both on the reserve/COVID-19 list, so their status is up in the air.
Rashawn Slater also did not play against the 49ers for precautionary reasons as he is dealing with a hurt back and Bryan Bulaga likely won't play with a hip flexor.
Chargers vs. Seahawks prediction for preseason Week 3:
I am 2-0 in the preseason thus far. I not only said to pick the Chargers as underdogs in the first game but I said to pick their money line as well. I also went with the San Francisco 49ers as three-point favorites in last week's game because they were going to have better quarterback play.
I am going to go with Chargers +5.5 in this game. I would stay away from betting the Chargers outright, but 5.5 points is a lot to give to a team like the Chargers in the preseason.
Storm Norton and Trey Pipkins have been terrible in the preseason and that makes me worry about what the Chargers can do offensively. However, there is also a quarterback battle in LA, which will prompt both Easton Stick and Chase Daniel to play a bit harder.
Even if they lose, I cannot see Geno Smith beating a Brandon Staley defense by more than five points.
What channel is the Chargers final preseason game on?

Chargers next game and schedule:
The LA Chargers have a week off to prepare for the regular season as they will then travel to Washington to take on the Washington Football Team in Week 1 of the regular season.
The Bolts will make their return to Sofi Stadium in nearly a month, hosting the Dallas Cowboys in Week 2 of the regular season, hopefully with a win under their belt.
