Total: 36.5 — Over: (-115) | Under: (-105)
The Saints are favored to win by a field goal at home. This game is also tied for the lowest total on Friday's schedule, so it's expected to be relatively low-scoring.
Chargers vs Saints Prediction & Pick
It's been a rough training camp for the Saints. Not only do they have a new head coach in Dennis Allen, but they also lost quarterback Jameis Winston for nearly two weeks with a foot injury and have a potential suspension hanging over Alvin Kamara's head. No wonder they've scored just 23 points and are 0-2 in their preseason games thus far.
The Chargers, on the other hand, have faced a pair of tough opponents in the Rams and Cowboys. Both are expected to be among the better teams in the NFC, and Los Angeles should have an easier team against a New Orleans squad that will likely finish with a losing record.
Final Score Prediction: Chargers: 24 | Saints: 17

One of these teams is going to earn its first preseason win here, and it looks like it's going to be the Chargers.
Los Angeles has one of the most explosive offenses in the NFL with Justin Herbert, Austin Ekeler, Keenan Allen, and Mike Williams. Even if they don't play much, they should help the Chargers put some points on the board when they're on the field.
Meanwhile, New Orleans' offense looks anemic by comparison, especially if Winston is limited or rusty due to his injury. The Saints have scored just 10 and 13 points in their first two preseason games, so it's hard to envision them scoring enough points to keep up with the Chargers.
