Minnesota is 11-5-1 ATS in their last 17 games as a favorite and 5-2-1 ATS in their last 7 games against a team with a losing record while the over is 4-0 in their last 4 road games. Los Angeles is 7-18-1 ATS in their last 26 home games and 3-8 ATS in their last 11 games as a home underdog while the under is 4-1 in their last 5 games against a team with a winning record.

Something feels off about this line to me, as you have a Chargers team that’s dead in the water, against a Minnesota team, that granted isn’t great on the road but still in the thick of the playoff hunt, in nearly a pick em. I just don’t see it. If this line is a trap, I’m biting. Philip Rivers just looks done for this year outside of what happened last week and maybe even more, while the Vikings just have too much to play for to take this one lightly. I’ll lay the points with Minnesota in this spot.
