Los Angeles Chargers vs. New Orleans Saints NFL Pick
The Los Angeles Chargers were already banged up. Now they won’t have leading rusher Ekeler for about a month because of a hamstring injury. Having said that, the Chargers have been solid with Herbert and they probably should have defeated the Buccaneers on the road.
The Saints have been hit and miss. They have allowed 33.3 points in their last three games. The Saints are playing inconsistent football. Take the Chargers and the points.
