- Using our NFL Pro Systems, we share a profitable betting angle for Sunday's Giants vs. Jets (1 p.m. ET, FOX) matchup.
The Chargers offense was struggling heading into Week 9. Los Angeles had been held to 20 or fewer points in four consecutive games.
As a result, Philip Rivers & Co. were small underdogs at home to Green Bay and there was lopsided action on the Packers to cover. More than 80% of bettors thought this was a good spot to fade the Chargers’ inconsistent offense.
They were wrong.
The Bolts took the opening kickoff and marched 84 yards for a field goal. It was the first time Los Angeles had scored on its opening drive since Week 4 in Miami.

Rivers led two more first-half scoring drives and the Chargers easily defeated the Packers, 26-11, as 4-point underdogs.
Few expected this outcome. So, why did bettors get burned?
Offenses tend to regress to the mean from game to game. This means a unit that struggled to find the end zone the week prior could put points on the board in bunches in its next game.
Teams that haven’t been able to put up a lot of points recently can be undervalued, which leads to inflated lines. These teams have added value against opponents that may not know their tendencies or personnel as well as their divisional rivals.
The optimal situation to wager on these clubs is in the first half.
It is easy to see an offense struggle and assume the team will continue to perform at that level. But history suggests teams can bounce back after sluggish offensive performances.
