The San Francisco 49ers and Los Angeles Chargers do battle in week 10 Sunday Night Football NFL action at Levi’s Stadium. The Los Angeles Chargers look for a win after winning 4 of their last 5 games. The San Francisco 49ers look to get a game above a .500 record.

The Los Angeles Chargers have won 3 straight road games. Justin Herbert is completing 66.4 percent of his passes for 2,254 yards, 13 touchdowns and 5 interceptions. Mike Williams and Austin Ekeler have combined for 876 receiving yards and 7 touchdowns, while Joshua Palmer has 34 receptions.

The San Francisco 49ers have won 2 of their last 3 home games. Jimmy Garoppolo is completing 66.7 percent of his passes for 1,691 yards, 11 touchdowns and 4 interceptions. Brandon Aiyuk and Deebo Samuel have combined for 870 receiving yards and 6 touchdowns, while George Kittle has 28 receptions.

The Chargers are 4-0 ATS in their last 4 road games and 2-7 ATS in their last 9 games in Week 10. The 49ers are 6-1 ATS in their last 7 home games and 14-6 ATS in their last 20 games overall. The over is 10-4 in Chargers last 14 games overall. The under is 4-1 in 49ers last 5 home games. The road team is 4-1 ATS in their last 5 meetings.

The San Francisco 49ers should be the favorite at home as they’re the more balanced team, and they’ve had an extra week to prepare for this game. However, this line feels a bit thick for a Los Angeles Chargers club that can be explosive offensively and has won 3 straight road games. The Chargers have their flaws, mainly with turnovers and a defense that’s 30th in scoring, but there’s talent, and they’re capable of beating anyone on any given day. I’ll take a shot with the free points.
