San Diego Chargers vs Indianapolis Colts 2010 NFL Picks, 2010 NFL Predictions & 2010 NFL Odds: The San Diego Chargers continue their late season push this evening as they take on AFC stalwart Indianapolis at Lucas Oil Stadium. The high profile meeting is scheduled to kickoff at 8:20pm ET on NBC's Sunday Night Football. 2010 NFL Picks, Predictions & Odds at online bookmaker Bodog.com listed as a -3 against the spread home favorite; the Over/Under is set at 51.
San Diego started its customary mid-season charge three weeks ago against Tennessee, which it beat 33-25 at Qualcomm Stadium. That victory was the beginning of a three game Charger win streak that has propelled the team to a 5-5 record and back into the playoff chase.
San Diego, despite leading the league in both yards per game and yards per game allowed, jumped out to a 2-5 start after turnovers and disastrous special teams play spoiled its effectiveness in other areas.
The Chargers have reversed course in those two areas of late, though, going +2 in turnover margin in their current win streak while avoiding the numerous special teams miscues that plagued them early on.
Quarterback Philip Rivers has kept the offense humming at a high rate through it all, throwing for a staggering 3177 yards and 23 touchdowns in route to a 105.8 passer rating (third best in the league behind Michael Vick and Tom Brady).
Indianapolis has fallen on uncharacteristic hard times over the past three Sundays, going 1-2 in its last three games, including a 31-28 loss at New England last weekend that enabled the Jaguars to take over the AFC South lead.
Injuries have played a big part in the Colts recent struggles, but at 6-4 Indy is still very much in the division title mix. A win tonight would go a long way toward restoring some order for the team, which is used to being out front, even when squaring off against top shelf competition.
NFL Picks Betting Trend: The Chargers are 9-1 against the spread and 7-3 straight up in their last 10 games playing at Indianapolis. The Colts are undefeated at home this season, though, with wins over the Giants, Chiefs, Texans, and Bengals.
San Diego Chargers +3 (-125), Over 51 (-110)
Indianapolis Colts -3 (+105), Under 51 (-110)
