The Chargers (4-9) travel to Vegas on Thursday to face the Raiders (7-6) who have won just one of their last four games. Los Angeles bounced back from an embarrassing shutout loss to New England in Week 13 with a 20-17 home win over the Falcons last week.
The Raiders lost their crucial tie against the Colts in Week 14 but their playoff chances are still alive. They sit ninth in the AFC at 7-6 but are only one game behind the seven-seed Dolphins and Ravens, both 8-5. They’ll have a chance to beat Miami and take the tiebreaker next week and will have the tiebreaker over Baltimore if they finish with the same record.
The Chargers are out of the playoffs but are coming off the back of a Week 14 win. However, the victory wasn’t plain sailing and mistakes were made.
Las Vegas has won three straight in this fixture, including a 31-26 victory in Week 9, but each has been won by one score or less. It’s expected to be a close matchup.
Los Angeles Chargers at Las Vegas Raiders Pick
The Raiders’ recent struggles are expected to end on Thursday Night. Quarterback Derek Carr has recorded over 300 passing yards and five touchdowns in his last two games. Running back Josh Jacobs is also back from injury and is expected to make an impact after his solid Week 14 return. Our pick is Raiders -3.
