SAN DIEGO, CA (The Spread) – The Chargers have a golden opportunity to start the 2012 season at 2-0 if they can pick up a victory this Sunday against a Titans team that struggled in Week 1.
TENNESSEE: The Titans fell 34-13 to the Patriots as a 4.5-point home favorite last week, while the combined score fell under the posted total of 48. Jake Locker completed 23-of-32 passes with one touchdown and one interception before leaving the game with a shoulder injury.

Philip Rivers completed 24-of-33 passes for 231 yards and one touchdown, while Malcolm Floyd hauled in four of his six targets for 66 yards and a touchdown. San Diego’s defense allowed Carson Palmer to throw for 297 yards and a touchdown, but held Darren McFadden to 32 yards on 15 carries. The Bolts were also helped by the Raiders’ special teams, which mucked up three punt attempts.
ODDS: The Titans opened as 6-point road underdogs against the Chargers and that’s where the line currently sits. The total for this game is 43.
TRENDS: The over is 4-1-1 in the last six meetings between these two teams while the favorite is 4-1 against the spread in the last five meetings. The Titans are 0-7 against the spread in their last seven games versus the Chargers and 0-4 ATS in their last four trips to San Diego.
