Betting Odds: Seattle Seahawks at Los Angeles Chargers (-3)

- Los Angeles Chargers Moneyline: -165
- Over/Under: 39.5
- Kickoff: Aug. 18, 2018 — 10 p.m. ET
First-round pick Rashaad Penny is expected to miss the remainder of the preseason with a broken finger. Chris Carson, a seventh-round pick last year, is set to start, and he flashed potential last season by finishing 12th among all running backs (min. 45 carries) in Elusive Rating (PFF). Still, a committee is possible between Carson and web-back C.J. Prosise, and the offensive line is repulsive.
The public is seeing the glass half empty, as 86% of tickets and 66% of the money have come in on the under.

Los Angeles Chargers
Philip Rivers will make his preseason debut Saturday night. This could potentially clear up the Chargers’ No. 3 receiver situation, as the pecking order is still fairly unknown behind Keenan Allen and Tyrell Williams.
Field-stretcher Travis Benjamin brings an added dimension to the offense, but the team didn’t spend the seventh pick in last year’s draft on Mike Williams to bench him.
