The San Diego Chargers are in shambles. Can they prevent a bounce back week for the Oakland Raiders? Here’s a mini-betting preview complete with SU, ATS and Total Picks.

   Oakland Raiders vs San Diego Chargers  

 

Point Spread Value

What’s that sound? Are the Chargers bleating with all the attacking intent of a flock of sheep? Ok. That’s cruel and uncalled for. Is it their fault they lost Keenan Allen at the start of the season? Then Danny Woodhead…blah blah blah…Melvin Gordon. In short, just about every other on the bench. The way things are going the water boy might be suiting up. In any event, this isn’t to rain on the Chargers rather state the obvious: they’re done and done. There’s really nothing to play for anymore save for perhaps a modicum of pride but even that eludes. The Raiders meanwhile are coming off a disappointing loss to the Chiefs. They’ll be eager to get back on track. The Raiders are 8-5-0 ATS with a 2.9 winning margin and +2.2 differential versus the spread.

The Survivor

For a stretch, things looked as if the San Diego Chargers might turn things around against the NFL odds. That illusion has since been dispelled and the Chargers are reeling out of control. Propping up the AFC West with a 5-8-0 SU record that includes a 3-3-0 SU record at home the Chargers are out of contention, ready to hit the golf course sooner rather than later. As evinced by the stats, they are a slightly better team at home. Given recent injury woes coupled with the hopelessness of their cause it just doesn’t seem likely they’ll be up for the challenge, the Raiders are sure to bring to San Diego.

Game Total

The Oakland Raiders are one of the best performers in the league in total betting with a 10-3-0 OVER record through 13 games. They are averaging approximately 28 points scored per game and conceding approximately 25 points per game. The Chargers are up there too with an 8-4-1 OVER record thanks to the offensive prowess of Philip Rivers, albeit recently the dip in his performance (interceptions al la Blake Bortles) is a worry. In any event, this could be a right cracker between divisional rivals that know each other well.
