The LA Chargers have enjoyed a hot start to the 2021 season despite the early portion of the schedule being the toughest. The Bolts are 4-1 after five weeks and wrap up the difficult start against the 4-1 Baltimore Ravens on the road.
The Chargers have their bye week in Week7 and beating the Ravens would be the perfect bow to cap off this red-hot start by the team. Heading into the bye week with a 5-1 record would be exceptional for the Chargers and would put them in a great position to not just make the playoffs but win the AFC West.
If the Chargers can go 5-1 with their early-season schedule then there is every reason to believe that the team can win 12, 13 or even 14 games this season. A lot has to happen to reach those numbers but we would feel confident in the Bolts with another statement win over Baltimore.
The Chargers are 2-0 on the road this season and the Ravens are 2-0 at home. Something has to give and it makes for a very compelling game to bet on.
LA Chargers vs. Baltimore Ravens odds Week 6:
According to WynnBET, the Baltimore Ravens are currently 3-point favorites against the LA Chargers in Week 6. Baltimore is -155 favorites against the moneyline while LA is +135 underdogs. The over/under for the game has been set at 51 points.
While some Charger fans might be shocked that the Bolts are underdogs in this game it makes complete sense. The Chargers and Ravens are on an identical level and Vegas typically gives three points on the spread to the home team.
These odds essentially mean that on a neutral site it would be a pick 'em between the Ravens and the Chargers, which is more than fair.
LA Chargers vs. Baltimore Ravens Week 6 prediction:
There are still a lot of unknowns as the week goes alone, particularly who will be playing for the LA Chargers and who will be playing for the Baltimore Ravens. However, as things currently stand, I am going with Chargers +3 and over 51 points.
This game really could go either way and like the Browns game it is probably going to come down to the last possession. With that in mind, I am going with the team that is getting points against the spread, not giving points.
This is a really tough game for the Chargers, however, and is absolutely one that they could lose. It is no secret that the Chargers struggle immensely against the run and they are coming up against the best running team in the league.
It is going to be another shootout. Can the LA Chargers win two shootouts in a row, this time on the road? With Justin Herbert anything is possible. The over is an absolute lock, that is for sure.
