Los Angeles Chargers Over 22.5 Points Scored

The Chargers carried a double-digit lead into the second half of their first matchup against Kansas City back in Week 2, but Justin Herbert suffered a rib injury late in the contest, and their offense took its foot off the gas down the homestretch, so the Chiefs ended up escaping with a narrow three-point victory (W, 27-24).

The Chiefs may be notorious for the occasional blunder, however, nobody rides the rollercoaster quite like Brandon Staley’s offense, as Herbert and co. racked up 25.4 PPG across their five wins this season, opposed to scoring just 18.3 PPG in their four losses.

When everything is clicking for this Chargers squad, they’re still one of the most dangerous squads in the league, without a question. However, the problem is they can’t stay healthy, and whenever their offense appears to be finding its stride, it always seems like the rug gets ripped from beneath them.

I’ll back L. A. to have a solid night in the scoring department here, as the Chargers have scored 24+ PTS in four straight matchups against Kansas City (30 PPG), and I think we’ll see that trend continue to prosper in Sunday night’s matchup between two of the most pass-heavy offenses in the league.

Austin Ekeler (LAC) Over 5.5 Receptions

The Chargers’ limited pass-catching options has given tons of value to Austin Ekeler’s receiving props through the first ten weeks of the season, highlighted by Ekeler entering Sunday night’s matchup averaging 47 receiving yards on a career-high 7.4 receptions per game, which primarily stems from the extended absences of L. A.’s top two wideouts Keenan Allen and Mike Williams.

As of Friday afternoon, Allen and Williams are both still listed as questionable to return for Sunday’s affair. However, I’ll back Ekeler to have another solid night through the air here regardless, as he’s caught 6+ passes in seven of his last eight games, with four of those performances ringing in at 8+ receptions for 48+ receiving yards. And I expect that trend to continue after hauling in nine passes for 55 yards in his first outing of the year against Kansas City back in Week 2.

Kadarius Toney (KC) Over 44.5 Receiving Yards

Kadarius Toney caught just two passes for 12 receiving yards in his debut with Kansas City after being acquired from the Giants prior to their Week 9 matchup against Tennessee. However, in his second go-around, he doubled that production plus some, as Toney hauled in four-of-five targets for 57 yards against a much weaker Jacksonville defense this past Sunday.

I’ll back Toney to have a solid night here, as he averaged 3.9 receptions for 42 receiving yards per game across 10 outings during his rookie campaign for New York, with a couple of those performances ringing in at 6+ receptions for 75+ yards. And I think we’ll see his usage level to continue to rise against a mediocre Chargers’ pass defense, especially in the absence of JuJu Smith-Schuster and Mecole Hardman out wide.
