From the running back spot, Austin Ekeler will be taking his place as Denver Broncos acquired Melvin Gordon. From the defensive end, the Chargers have Casey Hayward, Joey Bosa, and Derwin James on their squad to guide them. Cornerback Chris Harris Jr will do his past while Kenneth Murray and Linval Joseph add to their advantage.

Cincinnati Bengals Betting Analysis

Cincinnati Bengals were no better than the Chargers last sportsbook season. In fact, the Bengals were worse with their 2-14 record. Cincinnati sat at the bottom of the AFC North right from the start of last season. The Bengals were unable to do much with their unbalanced team. The Bengals can only hope for a better 2020 season with some changes to their squad. The most notable one will be Joe Burrow. Taking the lead with the offense from the quarterback spot in Burrow from this Sunday. Cincinnati acquired Burrow from the LSU Tigers and that is certainly a good catch.

On the other hand, Cincinnati has an offensive line that is one of the worst in the series. Burrow alone will not be able to do much for his team. From the running back spot, Joe Mixon will return alongside Giovani Bernard. Leading wide receiver AJ Green will continue his position while Tyler Boyd takes his place too. An addition to the team will be free agent DJ Reader. From the defensive line, Geno Atkins and Carlos Dunlap will return to keep the ball rolling.

Los Angeles Chargers vs. Cincinnati Bengals Pick

The NFL pick for this match is Los Angeles Chargers -3.5. The Bengals might have acquired Burrow as the No.1 overall pick in the NFL draft. Yet, Burrow himself cannot carry the ball and run all alone against the Chargers. What the Bengals need is a proper guidance to get them organized. The Chargers will take note of this situation and take out the Bengals with their potential. Final Score Prediction, Los Angeles Chargers win 24-17.
