Our picks, best bets

Pick against the spread: Chargers -3.5

It’s hard to make heads or tails of this one as neither team will play their starters in this matchup. There will be plenty of young talent on display on this one, including Rams wide receiver Tutu Atwell and Chargers running back Isaiah Spiller.

Rams head coach Sean McVay notoriously plays things conservatively in the preseason and that may especially be true this year coming off the Super Bowl. Take the Chargers to cover as a 3.5-point favorite.

Over/under: Over 30

While we won’t get the likes of Cooper Kupp or Justin Herbert tonight, we’ll still see plenty of exciting offensive talent fighting for spots on the depth chart. 30 is a low enough total to hammer the over here.
