The Chargers (4-7) need to take advantage of a lowly Patriots (2-9) squad on Sunday in a matchup of two coaches very much on the hot seat. Los Angeles is hanging by a thread in the AFC wild card race, but can stay alive with a win over a New England squad that has lost 7 of their last 8 games.

Before Betting on Chargers vs Patriots Week 13

It’s always tough for a West Coast team to travel to the East Coast, and Foxborough had always been one of the toughest places for opponents to get a win over the past 10-15 years. Things are different in 2023 though, and although you called call Patriots fans spoiled for all the time they had with Tom Brady, New England fans are not liking this rebuild which makes it easier for L.A. on Sunday.

The Chargers have lost three straight games – but against a solid Lions team, at Green Bay by a field goal, and against the Ravens who might be the best team in the AFC. New England is not of the caliber of any of those teams, and instead we might see a game similar to the Chargers’ 30-13 win over the Bears or the dominant 27-6 victory at the Jets that preceded L.A.’s current skid.

What we do know here is that the Chargers have an absolute QB advantage. Justin Herbert has thrown 20 TDs against 2 INTs this season and is completing 66% of his passes. The Patriots continue to swap between Mac Jones and Bailey Zappe under center and as the old adage goes – if you have 2 QBs you really have none.

Chargers vs Patriots Week 13 Prediction & Pick

This is a game that pundits are calling a possible upset for New England – but that might just be wishful thinking. Bill Belichick is a great defensive coach and it’s traditionally tough for a West Coast team to make the trip out East, but this is also a Patriots team averaging just under 12 points over their last four games.

Chargers coach Brandon Staley is fighting for his job, and if he loses this he might have to charter his own flight back.  

Pick: Chargers -5.5
