NFL Odds Week 4: Dolphins Vs. Chargers

The Chargers are 9-point favorites over the Dolphins, but they are also 0-3 against the spread.

While the San Diego Chargers head into their Week 4 matchup with the Miami Dolphins with a perfectly respectable 2-1 record, you'd be well advised to be a little skeptical of their installation as 9-point favorites. The Chargers are 0-3 against the spread this year and nine points is a lot to give up to anyone. Last week, they barely survived against a Kansas City Chiefs team that had been downright awful in their first two weeks.

Not to make this too confusing a game, but the Dolphins haven't been any better against the spread. They have been outscored by an average of more than eight points, while allowing about 415 yards per game. Not surprisingly they are winless.

The over/under on this game is set at 46.5, which implies an entertaining game. It might be fun to watch, but bettor beware.
