Why Bet on the Los Angeles Chargers?
Now riding a three-game winning streak, the Chargers have their heads up high when they step inside the M&T Bank Stadium. With that, the team can hold onto the AFC West top spot if they bring this one home.
Their Week 5 journey features an enthralling 47-42 home victory against the Browns. It was a slow start for both teams and the game eventually fired up in the second quarter when the visitors landed 17 points to take the lead. Slowly but surely, the Rams chipped the lead away before tearing down the Browns’ defense with a 26-point fourth quarter.
In their winning efforts, Justin Herbert was 2 yards shy of a 400 passing yard presentation. The quarterback completed 26-of-43 passes and scored four touchdowns during his stint. He had Mike Williams as his primary target and finished with 165 yards and 2 touchdowns on 8 receptions. This goes to show how deadly the wide receiver can be with the right passes coming his way. Additionally, Austin Ekeler and Donald Parham had a touchdown each after combining for 82 yards and 7 receptions.
The Chargers found three rushing touchdowns against the Browns as well, with Austin Ekeler leading the charge after a team-high 66 yards and 2 touchdowns on 17 carries. Justin Herbert also found his stride and recorded 29 rushing yards and a touchdown on 4 carries.
Derwin James led the defensive end with an incredible 17-tackle (9 solo) performance and 1 sack. Nasir Adderley was next in line with 8 tackles (7 solo) followed by Drue Tranquill at 10 tackles (6 solo).
Although the Chargers trailed in total yards and rushing yards, we witnessed how efficient the team can be. With a healthy squad for Week 6, we look forward to another great performance by head coach Brandon Staley and his crew.
Why Bet on the Baltimore Ravens?
The Ravens will try to improve their 4-1 AFC North record this weekend with the help of the Baltimore crowd. It was great to see the team recover from an opening game loss and accomplish a four-game winning run.
Orchestrating the offense is Lamar Jackson, who had 442 yards on 37-of-43 passing. It was a commanding night for the quarterback when he added 4 touchdowns to his already impressive record. Mark Andrews and Marquise Brown produced over 120 rushing yards and 2 touchdowns each, helping the Ravens stay in the game. And despite not finding the end zone during rushing plays, Jackson managed to achieve a team-high 62 yards and 14 carries.
In three of their last four games, the Ravens held their opponents to 25 points or less. Thanks to a solid defensive line, they held off the Colts to 25 points up until overtime. Brandon Stephens was the man of the hour, dishing out 11 tackles (5 solo). Anthony Averett followed with 7 tackles (5 solo), while Tavon Young had 4 solo tackles to go with a sack. Moreover, Jayson Oweh added another sack to the list and had 3 solo tackles on top of his clutch play.
It’s going to be a testing night for the Ravens as they get hit with numerous injuries on offense. Wide receiver Sammy Watkins suffered a hamstring injury last weekend, while left tackle Ronnie Stanley and right guard Kevin Zeitler bears an ankle and a knee injury, respectively. Furthermore, right cornerback DeShon Elliott makes it to the questionable list with a minor concussion.
