Game Overview

Potential playoff foes are going to be meeting up for NFL betting action the Sunday after Thanksgiving, as the San Diego Chargers play host to the Baltimore Ravens.

The Ravens are rolling at 8-2, and as long as they win next week’s game against the Pittsburgh Steelers, they should be well on their way to the AFC North crown this year. That’s a great accomplishment for a team that has been going through a lot of key injuries all season long. However, we still have a real question as to just how talented this team really is, especially outside of Baltimore. The Ravens were pushed by a Pittsburgh team that was playing with an injured second string quarterback, and that was a road game that was preceded by a blowout loss to the Houston Texans and an escape from the lousy Kansas City Chiefs, both of which were on the road as well. That really sends the antennae up about this game, especially knowing that QB Joe Flacco and the offense have struggled quite a bit recently, save for that 55-20 win over the Oakland Raiders.

Meanwhile, San Diego is running out of options and running out of time. The club is 4-6, and there is just no chance whatsoever for it to win the AFC West. There’s still a hope to get into the playoffs, but it is going to take winning probably five out of six games to end the season with some help along the way. QB Philip Rivers needs to help himself, though. He has thrown 14 picks on the season, and he is going to likely set a career high of interceptions, which currently sits at 20 from last year. The Bolts really have to consider whether Rivers is going to be around that much longer as a starting quarterback, especially knowing that he has never led the team beyond the AFC Championship Game, and he now has had a tough time getting the team into the playoffs these last few years. A running game would help, though. RB Ryan Mathews has disappointed all year long, and he has just one rushing touchdown on the campaign and isn’t chipping in as a receiver as he did last year. Either he or RB Jackie Battle really needs to step it up, or this team isn’t going to find all that much success.

San Diego Chargers vs. Baltimore Ravens Pick and Prediction

The Chargers aren’t the better of these two teams, but they weren’t the better of the teams last year when these clubs met either. San Diego won that battle by 20, and though we don’t think it will be as emphatic, we do think that this is a win in the making against a team that is just in the midst of a horrid scheduling spot. San Diego 28 – Baltimore 20
