NFL Picks: Preseason Rams vs Chargers

NFL Preseason started and the two teams of the city of Los Angeles will be each other in their stadium the So Fi in Inglewood CA.

What do the NFL Lines say for this matchup, Los Angeles Chargers +3, +132 total -110 and Los Angeles Rams -110, -162, -110

The LA Rams won the Super Bowl in 2021, but the picture of the falling year was a disaster basically because of its key injuries, they lost the starting quarterback, wide receivers, and some other good players on their roster and finished a campaign with 5-12.

The team lost players like Jack Ramsey, Bobby Wagner, Leonard Floyd, and Greg Gaines, They didn’t have first-round picks but had 11 total picks in 2023, and at the end, the team drafted 14 rookies. With all the problems they had with the defense last season, cornerback Tre’Vius Hodges-Tomlinson  Tre Tomlinson a sixth-round draft pick (182nd overall) could be the most impactful rookie addition to the team this campaign.

It is known in the league that a back-to-back championship is very difficult, but the LA Rams had 12 defeats the most by any defending champ in NFL history, Their defense strength, which scared quarterbacks and wide receivers was gone to injuries. The Ram’s defense will look very different, younger, inexperienced but faster. They will have the figure of  Hodges Tomlinson, nephew of Hall of Famer LaDainian Tomlinson, who can play the run game excel in the zone, and win the Jim Thorpe award in college.

The team will rely on defense on their star Aaron Donald if healthy there is no reason that he can dominate the NFL again, he can get the opposing quarterback and Tre Tomlinson can be very aggressive and even mable be considered an NFL Defense Rookie of the Year.



First of all, they lost Jalen Ramsey and veteran inside linebacker Bobby Wagner. With starting quarterback Matthew Stafford healthy and back and also wide receiver Copper Kupp you can wait for many passes but last proved it is not enough to make it through the season, so what would be their offense focus on throwing more the ball or more of a run first offense.

Let’s see what coach Sean McVay will choose he likes more the throwing game, but also saw at the end of the season that it’s better to combine the plays, run, and throw. It will be a hard season for the LA Rams, they are in a mix of veteran players who have won it all and rookie players, It’s going to be a long season for the Rams. NFL Odds should reflect this conundrum.


Los Angeles Chargers


Head Coach, Brandon Staley is known to not risk in preseason games, preventing any injury to its key players, Justin Herbert and Derwin James will probably see few minutes in these three preseason games.

The game will probably see a lot of rookies in action like Daiyan Henley, Quentin Johnston, and Tull Tuipulotu, who will probably have a significant impact on the season.

Some players to watch In this first game are wide receiver John Hightower who is a promising prospect, and some cornerbacks Ja’Sir Taylor and Asante Samuel Jr.



There are always very high expectations for this team, The roster is loaded with so much talent, its quarterback Justin Herbert is known to have very high skills, and newly arrived wide receiver Quentin Johnston will probably have an immediate impact.

The predictions for this team are so widespread, some say they will have a 12-5 record others are more conservative and say 8-9 and even 10-7, it all depends basically if they can be healthy, they are a strong contender for the AFC West title. This team will be way over .500 and make it to the playoffs.
