Steelers Open as 6-point Underdogs to Chargers

The Steelers have opened as six-point underdogs for their Week 6 trip to Los Angeles, according to the line posted on Monday by BetOnline.ag.

The line was held back from early action on Sunday night, perhaps as a result of the uncertainty surrounding the Steelers quarterback situation.

The team has still not updated the status of Mason Rudolph, who left Sunday’s 26-23 overtime loss to the Baltimore Ravens and was hospitalized with a concussion. Rudolph was reportedly allowed to return home Sunday night.

He was replaced at quarterback by undrafted rookie Devlin Hodges.

The 1-4 Steelers have fared better against the spread than they have on the scoreboard. After covering 3.5 points on Sunday, the Steelers are now 2-2-1 against the spread.

The Chargers melted down on Sunday, falling into a 17-point hole before coming back to make things close in a 20-13 loss to the previously winless Denver Broncos.

Los Angeles is 2-3 overall, but 1-3-1 against the spread this season after losing outright on Sunday in game they were favored to win by a touchdown.

This will the the Steelers’ first — and likely only — trip to Dignity Health Sports Park in Carson, California, the Chargers’ temporary home while SoFi Stadium in Inglewood is being built. The 27,000-seat soccer stadium is the smallest in the NFL and has not provided much of a home-field advantage for the Chargers since they moved there from San Diego. LA is 10-8 in home games at the facility they share with the Los Angeles Galaxy.
