NFL Betting Preview: Buffalo Bills vs. LA Chargers

December 23, 2023


The Buffalo Bills will travel to Inglewood, California to face the Los Angeles Chargers on Saturday night with kickoff scheduled for 8:00 PM ET in week 16 of the NFL season and will air on the Peacock App.

 

Buffalo has now won three of their last four games and is on a two-game winning streak with both wins coming against two of the top teams in the NFL with a 20-17 win on the road against the Kansas City Chiefs and a 31-10 win at home against the Dallas Cowboys in week 15. The Bills have been one of the highest-scoring teams in the NFL as they enter this game averaging 27.07 points per game which ranks 6th in the league.

 

Despite having turned the ball over 17 times with 14 interceptions and three fumbles lost, Josh Allen has played a pivotal role in the success the offense has had this season as he enters this game having completed 325 of 490 attempts for 3,541 yards with 26 touchdowns and 14 interceptions while rushing for 398 yards and 11 touchdowns. 

 

The scoring defense for Buffalo has also been one of the best in the NFL as they are allowing the 4th fewest points per game in the league with an average of 18.14 points per game. The Buffalo Bills will look to extend their winning streak to three games when they travel to face the Los Angeles Chargers.

 

The Los Angeles Chargers have been one of the most disappointing teams this season in the NFL as they enter this game with a record of 5-9 and have been eliminated from playoff contention following an embarrassing 21-63 loss on the road against the Las Vegas Raiders last week which resulted in the firing of head coach Brandon Staley and General Manager Tom Telesco.

 

Chargers were projected to have one of the best defenses in the NFL this season, however, they have not lived up to their potential as they enter this game having allowed an average of 24.64 points per game which is the 6th most points allowed per game in the NFL. 

 

The offense has also been disappointing as they are a below-average scoring team that is averaging 21.64 points per game and will be without their starting quarterback, Justin Herbert, for the remainder of the season. The Los Angeles Chargers will look to end their two-game losing streak when they host the Buffalo Bills on Saturday night in week 16 of the NFL season.
