Week 10 of the 2022 NFL season includes a clash between California-based teams as the Los Angeles Chargers are slated to pay a visit to the San Francisco 49ers. The Chargers have been one of the NFL's hotter teams lately, winning four of their last five games — including last week's 20-17 win over the Atlanta Falcons.

After back-to-back losses, the 49ers returned to their winning ways with a 31-14 victory against the LA Rams back in Week 9. Superstar running back Christian McCaffrey had a terrific game, tallying 149 total yards from scrimmage with two touchdowns on 26 touches, even throwing a 34-yard passing TD to Brandon Aiyuk.

Chargers vs 49ers Prediction & Pick

The 49ers have the benefit of entering this game well-rested after last week's bye. The run-heavy team must now take advantage of a Chargers defense that surrenders 159.5 rushing yards per road game, which is the third-worst clip in the league.

With the 49ers being at home, I expect them to hand the ball to McCaffrey early and often. He's averaging a solid 5.2 rushing yards per carry over his last three games, after all. Besides, fellow RB Elijah Mitchell has been activated from the injured reserve, giving San Francisco yet another dangerous weapon.

It'll also be hard for the Chargers to succeed without their top two wideouts. Mike Williams has already been ruled out with an ankle injury while Keenan Allen has yet to practice this week after he was sidelined in Week 9 with a hamstring issue. As good as quarterback Justin Herbert and RB Austin Ekeler are, they can't get it done on their own.

Back the 49ers taking advantage of the Chargers' awful run defense, leading to a home victory.

Final Score Prediction: 49ers: 31 | Chargers: 24

Chargers vs 49ers Best Bet

On paper, neither team's overall offensive numbers are eye-popping this season. However, it's worth noting that the 49ers have the 10th-best home offense (24.7 PPG) this season, whereas the Chargers are tied for having the fifth-best road offense (27.0 PPG).

With the total also going over in eight of the last 11 Chargers-49ers matchups, I can see the presence of players like McCaffrey, Cooper Kupp and Deebo Samuel leading to the over being hit yet again.

Bet: Over 45.5 Points (-108)
