***Dolphins vs. Chargers ATS Pick***

Opening Odds & Line Movement
Open: -1.5 -105 at Pinnacle
The Chargers were favored by 1.5 points at home and the NFL odds have moved to -2, and it's hard to argue that San Diego should be favored against anyone. They looked awful in a 10-3 loss in Kansas City as the offense has been decimated by injuries. This might also be the final home game in San Diego if the Chargers move to Los Angeles next season, so that puts a different spin on this game. The Dolphins fell 31-24 against the New York Giants at home on Monday night and after scoring 17 points in the first half, Miami could only manage a touchdown in the second half. Interim coach Dan Campbell has made the team tougher since taking over for Joe Philbin, bu the Dolphins are still making mistakes that bad teams make, and that is worrying. Mike McCoy might be out of a job after this season as well, which might not be fair, but the NFL is about results. If the Chargers have new owners, they might want their own people.
