Free NFL Proline Picks For Week #15 (Dec 18, 2011)
Baltimore Ravens (-1.5) vs. San Diego Chargers (+1.5); Total 44
The San Diego Chargers are finally playing like everyone expected them to but is it too late for them to make the playoffs? The Chargers are still alive in the playoff hunt but will need to win out and get some help from their division rivals. In their last 2 games the Chargers have looked great on offence and the rumors of Rivers maybe being injured have gone away. Over their past 2 games the Chargers have put up 75 points. Rivers has all his weapons on the field with Gates, Jackson, and Floyd and it is helping. Matthews has also been great for the Chargers with 3 consecutive 100+ rushing yard games. Rivers had been struggling with the turnovers this season as well but in his last 3 games Rivers has 0 turnovers to go along with 7 TD’s. The Chargers will have their work cut out for them with a tough Baltimore Ravens team. The Ravens have won 4 in a row and at 10-3 the only question for them is if they win the division or get a wildcard spot. Can the Baltimore D slow down this Chargers offence?

Ravens vs. Chargers Prediction:
I don’t think any defence can slow down the Chargers offence right now. With Rivers, Matthews, Malcolm, Floyd, and Gates, they just have too many weapons. Sure the Chargers may not score 35 like they have in the past two weeks but I do see them scoring in the mid 20’s (24-28). I do like the Chargers to cover the point spread in this game but there is a bet I like even better for this game. The San Diego Chargers team total in this game is currently 21 points at 5 Dimes Sportsbook . I do not see this Chargers team scoring less than 21 points with the way they have been clicking on offence. Rivers has faced this Baltimore defence 3 times in his career and has 830 passing yards to go with 6 TD’s. Baltimore might slow down the Chargers somewhat but I like the Chargers to score more than 21 points in this game. I’ll take the Chargers OVER 21 points (NFL Team Total Bet) in this game.
