Betting Odds: New Orleans Saints at Los Angeles Chargers (-2.5)

  • New Orleans Saints Moneyline: +118
  • Los Angeles Chargers Moneyline: -138
  • Over/Under: 44
  • Kickoff: Aug. 25, 2018 – 8 p.m. ET

New Orleans Saints

The Saints released journeyman running back Terrance West this week, meaning Jonathan Williams has seemingly won the competition to work alongside Alvin Kamara during Mark Ingram’s four-game suspension.
Coach Sean Payton told media this past May that “the mistake would be that Alvin gets 15 more carries.” Of course, it’s hard to keep Kamara off the field for too long because he’s usually the best player on it.

Eighty-six percent of public tickets are currently betting on Kamara and the Saints to cover on the road.

Los Angeles Chargers

The first-string offense is expected to play the entire first half, but Tyrell Williams (foot) and Austin Ekeler (calf) could remain sidelined. Those two along with Hunter Henry (torn ACL) and Antonio Gates (still unsigned) combined for 218 targets last season. There will be plenty of opportunity to go around for people not named Keenan Allen and Melvin Gordon.

Last year’s No. 7 overall pick Mike Williams has been the talk of training camp and appears positioned to start in the offense’s three-receiver sets. Williams offers un-paralleled size and contested-catch ability in the red zone.
