PICK 1: Raiders +1

The Chargers hammered the Packers on Sunday, but that was an anomaly to a disappointing season. They were outplayed but beat the Bears on a missed FG the week before, and had dropped three straight to non-playoff teams before that.

The Raiders are trending in the right direction and are 3-1 at home, the lone blemish to the then-red-hot Chiefs. Oakland is getting Josh Jacobs involved more and more and he should have another productive day against the Chargers’ 20th-ranked run defense.

PICK 2: Under 48.5 Points

Chargers running back Melvin Gordon is coming off his best game of the season with 20 carries for 80 yards and two touchdowns against the Packers.

Raiders games have been hitting the Over with regularity, but the Under has hit in their last five against these Chargers. The Under has hit in seven of the last eight Chargers games and in the four of the last five Thursday night games.

PICK 3: Highest Scoring Quarter – Fourth

All trends point to the fourth quarter as the breakout point for both teams. For the Chargers, they’ve averaged 6.7 ppg in the fourth, their most, and they’re allowing 7.0 ppg in the fourth, also their highest number. The Raiders’ trends have strengthened since their bye week, with an average final 15 minutes of 8.0-9.3 ppg – the highest averages of any quarter for each side.

PICK 4: First Score – Raiders TD

If there’s one thing we can count on with Oakland, it’s a hot start. The Raiders have scored first in seven of their eight games, and in five in a row. In four of those last five, it’s been of the six-point variety. The Chargers have scored first just once in their last five games.

PICK 5: Chargers by 1-6 Points

Rookie running back Josh Jacobs has rushed for 740 yards on 152 carries in eight games this season for the Raiders.
Rookie running back Josh Jacobs has rushed for 740 yards on 152 carries in eight games this season for the Raiders.

This is a hedge bet on what should be a close game. Seven of L.A.’s nine games have been decided by seven points or less, and one of the blowouts was against the Dolphins. Four of the Raiders’ last five have been by a TD or less as well.
