Ricky Tran Steelers vs Chargers Expert Pick
Start Time: October 13 2019, 8:20 PM
I don’t think there’s any reason to “over-think” this one. Pittsburgh’s season is over at 1-4, while LA is desperate to get back into the winners’ circle at 2-3.
Pittsburgh QB’ Mason Rudolph is listed as questionable for this one and if he does play, one has to wonder about whether or not he’s truly at 100% health after last week’s concussion?
Philip Rivers and company have two straight tough road contests after this (Tennessee and Chicago), which essentially makes this a “must-win” contest for the home side.
– Pittsburgh is just 10-16 ATS in its last 26 vs. the conference.
– LA is a perfect 3-0 ATS in its last three after failing to cover the spread in three of its last four games.
The verdict: Pittsburgh isn’t in the frame of mind to even use the “spoiler factor” as motivation right now. This one has “blowout” written all over it in my opinion; consider the Chargers this weekend!CLICK HERE FOR PREMIUM PICK OPTIONS
