-1 LA Chargers (4-5) vs LA Raiders (4-4) +48.5
It’s another ruckus night of TNF, as the battle of LA hits the late night NFL session.
Who wins in this battle of the middle of the road teams?
The Chargers are coming off a surprising beatdown of the Green Bay Packers, which had everyone in the NFC North fist-pumping the sky over the humbling of Aaron Rodgers.
They executed a punishing run offence that the Packers struggled to contain.
Melvin Gordon FINALLY had a good game, and Philip Rivers and his anemic O-Line didn’t look as horrible as they normally do.
The Raiders laid a nice little beating on the Lions last week, and were able to sustain a great running game to stifle the feisty cats.
Matt Stafford was impressive in this defeat, and continues to impress even if his team depresses.
The Chargers joy will be short-lived, as the Raiders are actually quite good against the run.
Rivers will once again struggle to connect, but should be able to find a few deep ball burns on the Raiders.
Josh Jacobs will be the key here, gashing the Chargers at will, and I wouldn’t be surprised if he was able to hit 200 yards.
I have the Raiders to stymie the Chargers and get a home win…well technically it’s home to both teams, but doubtful that any Chargers fans will show up.
