Ready for the NFL playoffs? The Los Angeles Chargers will renew their rivalry with the New England Patriots. This week when they meet in the Divisional round of the AFC playoffs. The game will be played on Sunday, January 13 at Gillette Stadium. It is scheduled to begin at 1:05 PM. ET. To follow, Chargers at Patriots Super Bowl 2019 betting odds.
The Chargers were able to get some payback against the Baltimore Ravens, who cost them a chance of getting a first round bye when they beat them in Los Angeles in week 16. Now, they will try to do something they were unable to do when they still had LaDainian Tomlinson in the backfield, beat the Patriots in the playoffs.
With an improved offense and defense, Philip Rivers and the Chargers have a legitimate chance to beat the Patriots this time around because this Patriots team is not as good as the previous versions they faced in the past.
River should be able to move the ball through the air, but their biggest concern going into the game will be the health of running back Melvin Gordon, who left the game against the Ravens with a knee injury. If Gordon is unable to play or is limited, the Chargers might experience déjà vu on Sunday afternoon.
Los Angeles’ defense will also have a tough job on their hands with future Hall of Famer Tom Brady, who will test them more than Lamar Jackson did in the last round.
Patriots Super Bowl 2019 Betting
The Patriots continue to find ways to win even when dealing with injuries and lack of depth at key positions. Despite the number of issues they had to deal with, they finished with the second best record in the AFC and believe they have what it takes to win their sixth Super Bowl trophy.
The extra week off will be appreciated by veterans like Brady and Rob Gronkowski, who have dealt with injuries this season.
The Patriots were perfect at home this season. Also, they played very well on the defensive end in their final two games. This is so they should be going into this game with a lot of confidence. If the defense continues playing well, Brady should be able to lead them to victory.
The Patriots are favored to win this game by 4.5 points. However, the over/under on total points scored is 47.
In conclusion, the Chargers have played very well this season. Also, they would have been our pick if Gordon didn’t get injured against the Ravens. With Gordon less than 100 percent, if he can play, the Patriots should be able to get the win. Take New England -4.5. What does this mean for wagering.
