Two teams looking to get above the .500 mark meet head-to-head in Week 3 as the Los Angeles Chargers host the Jacksonville Jaguars. The Jaguars dismantled the Indianapolis Colts in Week 2 by a score of 24-0 while putting on a masterful defensive performance (5.0 sacks, 3 interceptions).
Meanwhile, the Chargers dropped a close game on the road to the Kansas City Chiefs, 27-24, during Thursday Night Football. Los Angeles was up by a field goal entering the fourth quarter before an ugly pick six thrown by Justin Herbert turned the game on its head. Herbert also suffered a concerning rib injury in the game.

Jaguars vs Chargers Prediction & Pick
The health of Herbert is what Chargers fans should be keeping an eye on this week. Early reports suggest he will be able to suit up and if that is the case, Los Angeles should be able to pull out a victory. The Jaguars own a dismal 1-8 record in their last nine matchups against the Chargers.
Keep in mind that Herbert went 27-of-43 for 347 yards and 3 touchdowns the last time he faced off against Jacksonville in October of 2020. The third-year pro has improved his game a lot since then, which has to be scary for Jacksonville's defense. He is the difference-maker in this contest.
Final Score Prediction: Chargers: 28 | Jaguars: 21

Watching to see if this spread moves in either direction throughout the week is going to be crucial for bettors. Anything under a touchdown would be great territory to back LA in front of the home crowd. The Chargers are a stellar 9-0 against the spread (ATS) in their last nine games against the Jaguars.
Jacksonville's offense has shown a ton of improvement under head coach Doug Pederson, but the defense is nowhere near ready to face a powerful offense like Los Angeles. LA has weapons all over the field, including running back Austin Ekeler and wide receiver Mike Williams. It's just too much talent for the Jags to handle.
Bet: Los Angeles Chargers -7 (-110)
