Why Bet on the San Diego Chargers?
Now under new head coach Brandon Staley, the team looks forward to a potential first playoff spot since their last postseason appearance in 2018 or even a possible first division title in over a decade. It was a shaky preseason for the team, ending the run with a win and two losses. But this time around, we get to see the team working at its full capability.
We look forward to players returning and adding more depth to the offense, including second-year quarterback Justin Herbert. The 23-year old made waves last season once he was appointed to spearhead the unit. He gets the support of Austin Ekeler and Josh Kelley, who adds more sting to the Chargers’ backfield, while Keenan Allen and Mike Williams make up for a reliable duo at receiver.
There’s work to be done on the defensive end, but having Linval Joseph, Kyler Fackrell, Joey Bosa, and rookie Amen Ogbongbemiga give the side more confidence. The aforementioned sit in front of a reliable secondary, including Chris Harris Jr., rookie Asante Samuel Jr., and Derwin James.
Why Bet on the Washington Football Team?
The hosts now get head into their second year under Ron Rivera and work their way to a back-to-back playoff appearance for the first time in almost three decades. Adding more attacking threat to the team is quarterback Ryan Fitzpatrick, who is about to suit up for his first season wearing the Washington Football Team colors. He gets to work with one of the best running back groups in the league with Jaret Patterson, J.D. McKissic, and Antonio Gibson. Additionally, Curtis Samuel and Terry McLaurin spearhead the receiving corps for the Football Team.
Defensively, we’re looking at established names like Montez Sweat, Jon Bostic, Landon Collins, Chase Young, and Kamren Curl. The defense is where we find most of Washington’s weight. In 2020, the team placed fifth in scoring defense with just 21.2 points allowed per game. Ultimately, the quality offense and a robust defense should give the team a slight advantage coming into the contest.

Chargers vs. Washington Expert Betting Predictions
There’s very little separating the two teams, which makes this Chargers vs. Washington game a must-watch for fans of football and betting. The Football Team gets praise for their impressive defense under Ron Rivera last season, but Fitzpatrick remains under the microscope. He has the style and skill, but when it comes to playing under pressure, he tends to crumble and underperform. If the Chargers set the tempo early into the game, we might find the home team in trouble. Covering the spread should be relatively easy for Los Angeles, and an away is not out of the question.
