The Chargers are coming off another massive win over an AFC North opponent, and that means they’re that much closer to clinching a playoff spot.
Justin Herbert and co. lit up the Cincinnati Bengals’ defense for 41 points this past Sunday, with 24 of them coming in the first half. Herbert overall finished with 317 yards and three touchdown passes.
The Chargers’ defense also had a strong day, as they intercepted Joe Burrow twice and returned a fumble for a touchdown. As for the Giants, they couldn’t build off that win against the Philadelphia Eagles last Sunday. New York went down to Miami and lost to the Dolphins, 20-9.
Let’s dive in to determine which team will emerge victorious in our NFL pick of the day series.
Please note that all NFL gameday odds are current as of 1:30 p.m. ET on Friday, December 10.
Giants vs Chargers Prediction
The Chargers have won three of their last five games and will likely have the tiebreaker over the Pittsburgh Steelers and Bengals when it’s all said and done. Yes, they’ve also lost to some mediocre teams (the Minnesota Vikings and Denver Broncos), but this team has delivered for the most part in the big moments.
Los Angeles has a very winnable game here as New York has struggled this season. The Giants are 4-8 and look to be going nowhere fast.

It’s looking like Daniel Jones will be unable to go again for New York due to that neck injury he suffered a couple of weeks ago. That has now created the question of whether Jones should even come back this season due to New York being so far out of the playoff race.
That means that Mike Glennon will likely get another start this weekend. He struggled mightily against Miami this past Sunday and only threw for 187 yards with no touchdowns and one interception.
If Glennon cannot clear concussion protocol in time, Jake Fromm would be in line to start.
Either way, I expect the Chargers to take this one and get to 8-5. This will be another step towards more changes this offseason for the Giants.
Prediction: Chargers 28, Giants 14
Giants vs Chargers Best Bets
Best Bet: Chargers -10 (-110) at Caesars
Wager: 1 Unit
I know this is a lot of points, but the Giants offense has struggled to score all year. They couldn’t even score 10 against Miami, and their defense has been pretty mediocre.
For the season, New York ranks fifth-worst in points per game with 17.6. Even worse, New York has only scored 13+ points once in its last three games. Nothing has gone right on that side of the ball, whether it’s running or passing.
Due to that, I expect the Chargers’ defense to have a field day, starting with Joey Bosa upfront. Los Angeles’ offense will also likely be too much for New York’s defense to handle, considering the latter gives up nearly 23 points per game.
Best Bet: Under 43 Total Points (-110) at Caesars
Wager: 1 Unit
For this one, we have a case of one offense being pretty explosive versus a defense that has struggled. I expect the Chargers to score, but as I wrote above, I don’t think New York will.
At the end of the day, though, I think both defenses will do just enough (yes, that includes the Giants) to make this over too high for my liking.
Roll with the Under here and make this your NFL bet of the day.
