The New Orleans Saints will host the Los Angeles Chargers on Friday night in this NFC South vs AFC West preseason matchup. This will take place at the Mercedes Benz Superdome in New Orleans.
After barely missing the playoffs in 2021, the Chargers have high expectations for this season as their core progresses. Throughout the first two preseason games, most of this team's starters have not seen the field as their real goal is to make the playoffs and beyond. Due to this they have lost their first two games of the preseason by at least a touchdown.
Justin Herbert will obviously start in the regular season. Easton Stick started against Dallas and went 11 for 20 for 134 yards, a touchdown, and an interception. He was the only bright spot on offense as Stick also rushed for a team-high 24 yards on two carries in the loss.
Last season the Los Angeles Chargers averaged 390.2 yards on offense and 360.1 yards given up on defense.
The New Orleans Saints have also dropped their first two pre season games falling to Texas 17-13 to open up and 20-10 to the Packers last week.
Jameis Winston has not taken a snap in preseason coming back from an ACL tear last season. But will likely be the week one starter here.
Ian Book saw all the action at quarterback last week, going 16 for 28 with 113 yards, one touchdown, an interception passing, and 49 yards rushing in the loss. Look for the Chargers to struggle on defense in this one against a Saints team that will run without a strong QB.
Last season the New Orleans Saints averaged 304.5 yards on offense and 318.2 yards given up on defense.
The Over is 6-0 in Chargers last 6 games overall and is 6-0 in Los Angeles Chargers last 6 games on fieldturf. The New Orleans Saints are 1-4 ATS in their last 5 home games. Although both of these squads don’t care too much about the preseason, the Los Angeles Chargers should get the win here as they have the stronger team overall.
