San Diego Chargers vs Detroit Lions Odds, Prediction, and Pick
What a week 16 match-up that we have here between the San Diego Chargers and the Detroit Lions. The Chargers are heading on the road for this one, but this should still be one of the best games of the entire weekend. The Chargers have risen from the ashes by winning three games straight and finding themselves at 7-7 overall with a serious shot at potentially making it into the playoffs with a bit of help. As far as the Lions go, this team started so hot and then slowed down just a bit, but they seem to have hit their stride at the right time by winning two games in a row and sitting at 9-5 overall. This team is currently a favorite to finish up as a wild card for the NFC, and the Lions are definitely not a team to sleep on come playoff time.

Don't let the records of these two teams fool you though, as the Chargers are playing some of the best football of the entire season right now. They are coming off of three dominant performances, including one against one of the top teams in the AFC in the Baltimore Ravens. Quarterback Philip Rivers may have started slow this season, but he's hitting his stride in December once again, and is hoping that it's not too little too late for his team. Detroit on the other hand has held on against two late rallies by the Raiders and the Vikings, but this weekend will be their biggest test yet. The game will kick off at 4:05pm EST and is an excellent betting option!

It's tough not to like both of these teams if they get into the upcoming playoffs, but the problem is, we have to pick one team right now! It's tough to bet against this Lions team at home, but I really love the way that the Chargers are playing right now. This teams offense is clicking on all cylinders, and their defense has been equally impressive. While I don't think they'll be able to shut down the Lions offense completely, I do think that the Chargers can hold off this powerful offense at least enough to pull out the win. I'm going with the Chargers in upset fashion to win by a field goal.

This game will simply be a fun one to watch. While I think that the Lions have one of the best offenses in the NFL, I think that the Chargers offense prevails. I see San Diego riding Rivers and wide out Vincent Jackson to a big time win here. The Lions are favored in this one though, so I'll be picking the Chargers to not only cover the +1.5, but I'll also be putting a little bit on the Chargers to win the game outright on the money line.
San Diego Chargers +1.5
