Chargers vs. Texans odds, picks, line, how to watch, live stream: Model reveals 2022 Week 4 NFL predictions
Two teams who have suffered back-to-back losses meet in Week 4 on CBS and Paramount+ when the Houston Texans (0-2-1) host the Los Angeles Chargers (1-2). The Texans have seen every game decided by seven points or fewer, but they have yet to win any and only managed a Week 1 tie. Meanwhile, Los Angeles won their opener before Justin Herbert was injured in Week 2 and suffered a blowout loss to the Jaguars last week. Herbert (ribs) plays despite the pain while the team is once again without wide receiver Keenan Allen (hamstring).

Week 4 NFL tips for Chargers vs. Texans
Before you tune in to Sunday’s Texans vs. Chargers game, you need to check out SportsLine’s advanced computer model NFL picks. The model, which simulates every NFL game 10,000 times, has won nearly $7,000 for $100 players with top-tier NFL picks since its inception. The model kicks off Week 4 of the 2022 NFL season with an incredible 139-103 run of top-flight NFL picks that stretches back to the 2017 season.
The model has also ranked in the top 10 on NFLPickWatch for four of the last six years in direct NFL picks, beating more than 94% of CBS Sports football pick ’em players four times in that span. Whoever followed it is way up.
For Chargers vs. Texans, the model tilts across the total. Even with injured ribs, Herbert threw for nearly 300 yards and a touchdown last week. An extra week of rest should do wonders for him, and we’ve seen how effective the Chargers’ offense can be when Herbert has no restrictions. It scored 24 points in its first two games and both defenses it faced are better than what it will see in Houston on Sunday.
The Texans face off against the two lowest-scoring teams in the league, the Colts and Broncos, and the Bears, who are 20th on points. Still, the team still sits 29th in overall defense, so Herbert and Austin Ekeler should have a great day. The latter in particular needs to lick his chops as Houston has the worst run defense in the league. Ekeler led the NFL in touchdowns last year and the model gives him a good chance of finding the end zone in Week 4.
The model calls for both teams to score at least six points more than the season average, with the over (44) hitting well over 50 percent of the time.
