Chargers vs Raiders Picks/Predictions:
Final Score prediction = Chargers 33 Raiders 20
Money Line – I don’t really like the money line because the Chargers are too big of underdogs. The only value would be on the Raiders and I don’t see them winning this game.
Spread – Bet on the Chargers to cover the 11.5 points spread at +110. Chargers have the better team and will be bringing it in this week 1 Monday night game. Chargers are also 7-0 ATS in the past seven games in Oakland. I think the Chargers will be putting on a show tonight against the Raiders – put your money on Chargers to cover the spread.
Over/Under – Bet on over 42.5 at -110. I looked at some past betting trends and the over looks like the right call for this game. Over is 4-1 in Chargers last five games on grass. The over is 4-1 in Chargers last five games overall. I think the Chargers will put up big numbers against this Oakland defense.
