The LA Chargers wrap up the preseason on a Friday as the team is taking on the San Francisco 49ers. The last preseason game of the year is always the best one as it is the last Chargers football game that doesn't matter before the start of the regular season.

Fans won't see the usual starters play because of how conservative the coaching staff is with the preseason. However, there are still several players who are battling for a roster spot that could really use this preseason game to secure their future with the team.

Here is everything you need to know.

How to watch Chargers vs 49ers:

Fans in both the San Francisco market and the Los Angeles market can tune into their local CBS broadcast for coverage of the game. Because this is a preseason game, it will not be available on Paramount+ for streaming (regular-season games on CBS will be, though).

In addition to CBS, the game will also be broadcast nationally on NFL Network, so any out-of-market fans do not have to worry about jumping through additional hoops to tune into this one.

The best streaming option for the game is NFL+. Fans can watch the game live on a mobile device with an NFL+ subscription, which is $9.99 a month.

Chargers vs 49ers time and location:

This is the only road preseason game that the Chargers will play this season as they are heading up north to Levi Stadium to take on the Niners. Kickoff is scheduled for 7:00 p.m. PT.

Chargers vs 49ers betting odds:

This is the last chance for football fans to get back into the betting rhythm before the start of the regular season. The 49ers are 7.5-point favorites and the point total has been set at 37.5 points.

That might seem like a huge number for a preseason game and may entice some Chargers fans. We must remind you that the outcome of this game means absolutely nothing to both teams, so keep that in mind before making any potentially rash decisions.
