Football gambling fans will have an attractive matchup of high powered offenses and suspect defenses to handicap against the odds NFL. The San Diego Chargers are 1-1 both straight up and against the spread so far in the football gambling preseason.
Both of San Diego’s exhibitions have gone under the odds NFL total. Last week the Chargers won at Arizona 17-6 as 3-point road dogs. The Atlanta Falcons are 1-1 straight up but 2-0 against the preseason football gambling board. They are 1-1 so far in exhibition over/unders.
Last week Atlanta beat St. Louis 20-13 as 2.5-point road favorites as the game went under the football gambling total of 36. The San Diego Chargers offense is yet to click in to regular season form so far as they rank 22nd in scoring but 8th in total yards so far in the football gambling preseason.
Starting quarterback Philip Rivers has seen limited preseason football gambling action but has looked great when he has taken the field as he has a quarterback rating of 97.1. Backup Billy Volek has an even better QB rating of 122.3.
The ground attack has been a point of concern as Gartrell Johnson and LaDainian Tomlinson were both under 2.6 yards per carry. The Chargers rank 23rd in the league for rushing yards this preseason.
The receiving corps has been solid as Charly Martin had 6 catches for 83 yards and Legedu Naanee had 5 catches for 84 yards and 2 touchdowns. The Chargers wanted to use the football gambling preseason to improve the defense and so far they look to be accomplishing that goal as they rank 7th in points allowed and 6th in total yards allowed.
The Atlanta Falcons offense looks to be in midseason form so far in the football gambling preseason as they rank 6th in points scored and 6th in rushing yards. Starting quarterback Matt Ryan has looked like a pro bowler so far as he has a QB rating of 120.6.
DJ Shockley has been an embarrassment however with a QB rating of 15.4. Michael Turner has 13 rushing attempts for 128 yards and 2 touchdowns.
