Key Betting Trends

The Chargers have failed to cover in five of their last seven games against the Patriots. They're also just 2-5-1 against the number in their last eight conference games but are 12-4-1 against the spread in their last 17 games on the road. On the other side, the Patriots are 19-7 against the spread in their last 26 games overall and are 5-0 against the number in their last five games played in Week 8.

Our Prediction

The over has cashed in four of the last five meetings between these two teams in New England and is 7-3 in the Chargers' last 10 games played in the month of October. On the other side, the over is 5-1 in the Patriots' last six conference games, is 8-3 in their last 11 games overall, and is 49-24 in their last 73 home games. Even thoguh some believe the Patriots have fixed their defensive problems, they just lost their most versatile player in linebacker Dont'a Hightower, who is now out for the season. That's a huge blow for the Patriots.
