Chargers minus $1.25 (money line) at Lions

Don’t overthink this game. The Chargers are at least two levels higher than the Lions. They were the best road spread team last season, too. The Chargers are 5-0 SU and 4-0-1 ATS as road chalk the last two years since Anthony Lynn became head coach. Los Angeles has covered seven of its past eight road games.  Austin Ekeler and Justin Jackson have proven more than capable of replacing holdout Melvin Gordon.

The Chargers averaged six yards per rush opening week. I would take Philip Rivers over Matthew Stafford, too.  Those downgrading the Chargers here point out LA will be without its best offensive lineman with left tackle Russell Okung out. But Detroit offensive left tackle Taylor Decker, who protects Stafford’s blind side, gave up two sacks last week and is doubtful with a back injury. Joey Bosa gives the Chargers the best pass rusher on the field.  The Chargers are one of the few complete teams in the NFL without any discernible weakness.

The Lions have many warts, including a vulnerable secondary, bad head coach and a horrendous 4-12 ATS record when meeting above .500 opponents.

I went 3-0 on my college football plays Saturday pushing my CFB streak to 26-8-2 (76 percent) on my premium/free plays going back to last season. I have been hot in the NFL, too, going 33-12-3 on my last 48 premium/free plays for 73 percent.

I also am 20-12 (63 percent) in the Canadian Football League this season and am having winning seasons in baseball and the WNBA.
