The Seattle Seahawks and Los Angeles Chargers meet Sunday in week 7 NFL action at SoFi Stadium. The Seattle Seahawks look to get a game above a .500 record. The Los Angeles Chargers look to build on their 3-game winning streak.

The Seattle Seahawks have lost 6 of their last 9 road games. Geno Smith is completing 73.4 percent of his passes for 1,502 yards, 9 touchdowns and 2 interceptions. Tyler Lockett and DK Metcalf have combined for 829 receiving yards and 4 touchdowns, while Noah Fant has 19 receptions. The Seattle Seahawks ground game is averaging 124.3 yards per contest, and Rashaad Penny leads the way with 346 yards and 2 touchdowns. Defensively, Seattle is allowing 27.2 points and 410.8 yards per game. Jordyn Brooks leads the Seattle Seahawks with 65 tackles, Uchenna Nwosu has 3 sacks and Tariq Woolen has 4 interceptions.

The Los Angeles Chargers have won 5 of their last 7 home games. Justin Herbert is completing 66.1 percent of his passes for 1,716 yards, 10 touchdowns and 3 interceptions. Mike Williams and Austin Ekeler have combined for 670 receiving yards and 4 touchdowns, while Gerald Everett has 22 receptions. The Los Angeles Chargers ground game is averaging 94.8 yards per contest, and Ekeler leads the way with 349 yards and 4 touchdowns. Defensively, Los Angeles is allowing 25.3 points and 349.8 yards per game. Derwin James Jr. leads the Los Angeles Chargers with 55 tackles, Khalil Mack has 6 sacks and Bryce Callahan has 2 interceptions.

The Seahawks are 5-1 ATS in their last 6 games in October and 9-3-1 ATS in their last 13 games in Week 7. The Chargers are 21-43-1 ATS in their last 65 home games and 4-1 ATS in their last 5 games overall. The under is 11-5 in Seahawks last 16 road games. The over is 9-3 in Chargers last 12 games overall. The underdog is 6-0 ATS in their last 6 meetings.

The Los Angeles Chargers are the better team and should be favored, but they're also one of those good bad teams that can lay an egg at any point. The Chargers aren't living up to what their defense is supposed to be, and they don't have much of a home field advantage. The Seattle Seahawks are a bit better than expected, and they're getting just enough production from the offense to hang around most weeks. The Chargers should win, but this game is likely close, like most Chargers games are. Give me the Seahawks and the points.
