The San Diego Chargers host Cleveland this weekend looking to get things going and that'll probably start with their franchise quarterback, Philip Rivers. Let's check the betting odds inside.

Opening Odds & Line Movement
Open: -7 -105 at Pinnacle
The Chargers opened up favored by a touchdown at home, then the NFL odds went to -7.5, -8 and back to -7.5 as the books can't seem to figure out how good the Chargers are. Maybe it is a decision on how bad the Browns are after losing to Oakland, which normally wouldn't mean much, but the Raiders don't look that bad so far this season. The Chargers got whipped by Minnesota last week on the road, their second away game in a row, but the Browns don't have an Adrian Peterson who can take advantage of a San Diego defense that is tied for 28th in the league against the run. It wouldn't be a surprise to see this line go back up to -8, or higher, by kickoff.

Injuries
LB Craig Robertson has an ankle injury that will likely see him out of the lineup this week, while CB Joe Haden is questionable with sore ribs. McCown played last week with a hand injury, with Johnny Manziel and Davis waiting in the wings. The locker room might be an injury all on its own as there are reports of a rift between players that support Manziel over McCown, yet it is Davis who gets an extension. That's the Cleveland Browns for you.

G Johnnie Troutman is out for the season because of his arm, while TE LaDarius Green might be past his concussion problems for now. T D.J. Fluker is up in the air with an ailing ankle, while T King Dunlap (concussion) and G Orlando Franklin (ankle) are also questionable for the Chargers.

 

Trends

The Browns are just 2-8 SU in their last 10 games, but 5-5 ATS, and they've covered in four of their last six on the road. The Chargers are a miserable 3-11 ATS in their last 14 games, and they've covered just once in their last six at home.

The Chargers have won five of their seven meetings with the Browns, who have covered in four of those games. Only two have been in San Diego, who have won both games SU, but the two have each covered in one of those games.
