The Chargers might be the most balanced team in the AFC, but oddsmakers are only giving them a four point edge over the Ravens, per OddsShark. The Ravens have won four of the last five games, the only loss being an overtime defeat in Kansas City.

Los Angeles has also struggled to generate much of a home crowd advantage since temporarily moving to the StubHub Center last season.

The Ravens are second in the NFL with 141.9 rushing yards per game, and lead the league in total defense. Rookie quarterback Lamar Jackson’s rushing abilities have transformed the Ravens into a team that controls the ball for long periods of time and plays effective defense when asked.

That said, the Chargers have the ninth best rushing defense in the NFL.

Wide receiver Keenan Allen is questionable for the game. Running back Austin Ekeler has been ruled out for the Chargers. Tight end Nick Boyle, linebacker Matthew Judon and linebacker Anthony Levine are all questionable for the Ravens.
