Chargers vs. Rams odds, picks, how to watch, stream, start time: The Model’s Week 17 NFL Predictions

It’s a home game for everyone as Justin Herbert and the Los Angeles Chargers take on Baker Mayfield and the Los Angeles Rams this Sunday on CBS and Paramount+. The two sides haven’t played each other since 2018 and come into this Battle of LA rendition in very interesting positions. Herbert and the Chargers had a rough start to their season, but clinched a playoff spot with a 20-7 victory against the Indianapolis Colts in Week 16. Meanwhile, the Super Bowl champions are coming off a very disappointing season, but they are coming off a dominating 51-14 win over the Denver Broncos on Christmas Day. You can stream the game in select markets on Paramount+.

Kickoff from SoFi Stadium in Inglewood, California is set for 4:25 p.m. ET. The Chargers are a 6.5 point favorite in the latest Chargers vs. Rams from Caesars Sportsbook and the over/under for total points is 41.5.

NFL Week 17 picks for Rams vs. Chargers

Before tuning in to the Chargers vs. Rams on Sunday, you must see the NFL picks from SportsLine’s advanced computer model. The model, which simulates each NFL game 10,000 times, has cost more than $7,000 for $100 players on top NFL picks since its inception. The model enters Week 17 of the 2022 NFL season with an incredible 158-113 streak of top-rated NFL picks dating back to the 2017 season.

The model also ranked in NFLPickWatch’s top 10 four of the last six years in straight NFL picks and won over 94% of CBS Sports Football Pick’em players four times in that span. Anyone who has followed it is very high.

For Chargers vs. Rams, the model picks the Chargers to cover the spread. Sportsbooks and pundits are very divided on this game given how inconsistent both sides have been this season. But the model favors the Chargers, who clinched their first playoff berth since 2018.

We don’t understand how overwhelming the Rams’ season has been since last season’s Super Bowl win. Still, Sean McVay’s team has at least been interesting since Mayfield came to town to fill in for an injured Matthew Stafford. The Rams aren’t likely to steamroll the Chargers like Russell Wilson and the Broncos did last week because Herbert and company are tougher competition. The Chargers are averaging 270.1 passing yards per game this season, the third-best mark in the NFL. Maybe you can stream the game here.
