The Los Angeles Chargers and Atlanta Falcons face off on Sunday in an NFL showdown at Mercedes-Benz Superdome. The Chargers have won the last two games against the Falcons. 

The Chargers come into this game with a 4-3 record overall, and they haven’t lived up to the expectations. In the last game against the Seattle Seahawks, the defense gave up 37 points, and that led to the 14-point defeat. The defense couldn’t stop the run game, and that led to them giving up 37 points. Justin Herbert completed 33 of his 51 passes for 293 yards, two touchdowns, and one interception. The Chargers are averaging 23.4 points, while their defense is giving up 27 points per game. Keenan Allen is dealing with a hamstring injury, and he’s questionable for this game.

On the other side of this matchup is the Falcons, who sit with a 4-4 record overall, and they have gone 6-2 against the spread. In the last game against the Carolina Panthers, it was a tight battle, but they scored 37 points, and that was enough to secure a three-point victory in overtime. Marcus Mariota completed 20 of his 28 passes for 253 yards, three touchdowns, and two interceptions. The Falcons' offense is averaging 25 points, while their defense is giving up 25.6 points per game. The offense is elite, but their defense needs to be improved if they are going to make this game. 

The Chargers are 9-4 in their last 13 road games. The Falcons are 4-1 against the spread in their last five games. The underdog is 4-1 against the spread in the last five meetings played between the two teams. The under is 4-1 in the last five meetings played between the two teams. 

The Falcons are going to score here, but their defense has been awful, and that is going to be the case again in this game. The Falcons defense is giving up over 25 points per game, and the Chargers will get to 30 points. The Falcons' offense is going to run up the score here also, and this game is going to be a shootout. Back the over to cash. 

The pick in this article is the opinion of the writer, not a PickDawgz site consensus.
