Week 15: Titans at Chargers (-8.5)

This mostly has to do with my personal prediction about the Tennessee Titans. I think the Titans will be one of the most disappointing teams in the entire league next season and should be under .500 by the time they play the Chargers in Week 15. While Derrick Henry is still a threat, he won't be the same unstoppable monster in this game.

Week 16: Chargers (+2) at Colts

While I think the Chargers are undoubtedly better than the Colts, Indianapolis should still be leading the really bad AFC South at this point of the season and get massive home-field advantage the day after Christmas in primetime. If there were not the added strings attached I might even say the Chargers should be favored, but Vegas will overvalue Indy's record and the big advantage will make the Bolts two-point dogs.

Week 17: Rams at Chargers (Pick 'em)

By the time this New Year's Day game rolls around I think many people will be considering the Chargers and Rams to be the favorites in their respective conferences to make it to the Super Bowl. With neither team having an advantage, Vegas throws their hands in the air and makes this the rare pick 'em for the fans to choose.

Week 18: Chargers (+7.5) at Broncos

The Chargers' biggest underdog line of the season will come in Week 18 when they head on the road to take on the Denver Broncos. Denver will likely need to win this game for playoff implications, making a hue game that might get flexed into primetime.

So why have the Chargers as over a touchdown dog? Simple. I think the Chargers will have wrapped up the division by this point and will rest the starters to get them healthy for the playoffs. Maybe they play a half, or a quarter, but the Broncos will be playing the Chargers' reserves in this one.
