The Chargers are 5-1 ATS in their last 6 road games and 5-2 ATS in their last 7 vs. AFC. The Raiders are 5-1 ATS in their last 6 vs. AFC West and 5-1 ATS vs. a team with a winning record. The over is 12-5 in Chargers last 17 games overall. The over is 4-1 in Raiders last 5 home games. The Chargers are 5-2 ATS in their last 7 meetings in Las Vegas.

You can make a case for either team here, as there’s talent on both sides, and they’ve been a bit underachieving. The Los Angeles Chargers are probably the better team, and they’re starting to get healthy, but all of their games come down to the wire and I don’t like them in the favorite role if we’re being honest. The Raiders still have issues, but they’re coming off back to back overtime wins, and that could do wonders for their confidence. The Raiders are at home. I’ll grab the free points in the Raiders could easily win outright.
