Las Vegas Raiders vs. Los Angeles Chargers Prop Bets – NFL Week 4 Props

Monday Night Football is in Los Angeles at SoFi Stadium with the Chargers playing host to the Las Vegas Raiders. While this is a road game for the Raiders, they’re back in California where a big contingent of Raiders’ fans will be waiting.

There could be more Raiders’ fans at this game than Chargers, so it might feel like a home game for them. There are still a lot of Raiders’ fans in California, not to mention their fans from Las Vegas will travel.

The Raiders carry a record of 3-0 into SoFi Stadium. They’ve been living on the edge with two wins in overtime, most recently a 31-28 win to edge out the Miami Dolphins in overtime. That was a nailbiter with the Dolphins scoring and then a 2-point conversion to force extra time.

The Raiders have looked good, but we’ve seen this with them before. Provide plenty of hope early on in the season and then regress too much in the second-half. Something feels different in the sense that they’re showing grit in tight games.

The Raiders would lose these types of games before. Derek Carr has been playing well with 6 touchdowns and 2 interceptions on 64.7% completions. He’s racked up at least 382 yards through three games.

This is a big matchup between Carr and Justin Herbert. Herbert has established himself as one of the finest young quarterbacks in the NFL. He has the Chargers going into Monday night with a record of 2-1 following an upset over the KC Chiefs.

Herbert is coming off a big performance with 281 yards and 4 touchdowns. Head below for our free Raiders vs. Chargers prop bets on October 4, 2021.

Bryan Edwards Total Receiving Yards

The Raiders have Henry Ruggs and Darren Waller, but they’ve needed a receiver to complement those two. Hunter Renfrow is nice in the slot, though he doesn’t exactly stretch the field. Bryan Edwards has been giving the Raiders an additional threat.

The second-year receiver has 210 yards on 10 receptions. He had just 193 yards and 1 touchdown last season.

Edwards has already surpassed his numbers as a rookie, and is only two targets away from matching what he did in 12 games a year ago.

He’s been showing up and not just picking up short yardage. Edwards has made big plays beating coverage deep.

All it could take is one big connection for this prop to come in. The Chargers have been decent against the pass with 201.7 yards allowed per game.

They are going to make some plays in this one. However, that probably provides us with some value on Edwards. At only 35.5 receiving yards, Edwards to record at least 36 yards is one of the top props on the board.

OVER 35.5

Hunter Renfrow Total Receptions

Hunter Renfrow has developed into a dangerous weapon for the Raiders out of the slot. He is a go-to option for Derek Carr.

Renfrow was a terrific safety valve for Carr through his first two years, but he’s turning into much more than that for the Raiders.

He recorded 605 yards and 4 touchdowns as a rookie, 656 yards and 2 touchdowns last year, and then is on pace to easily break his career-high from 2020.

Renfrow goes into this one with 204 yards on 16 receptions through three games. Even without the extra game, Renfrow should break 656 yards.

He’s had at least 5 receptions in his first three games in 2021. Carr has looked in his direction often with 22 targets. Expect the Clemson Tiger to grab at least 5 receptions for 50 yards on Monday night.

Austin Ekeler Total Receiving Yards

Austin Ekeler is a multi-talented player in the Chargers’ offense. He is much more than just a running back. Oftentimes Ekeler gets more done as a pass catcher than a running back out of the backfield.

He has a skillset similar to Alvin Kamara in that he’s dangerous no matter what his role is in a play. Darren Sproles was a spark plug and fan favorite in San Diego, and Ekeler has been that and much more for the Chargers in LA.

After a slow start in Week 1 with no receptions, Ekeler has gotten back to normal duties over the last two games. He had 9 receptions for 61 yards against the Dallas Cowboys, and then 6 receptions for 52 yards and a touchdown last week against the Chiefs.

I’m leaning towards Ekeler continuing that trend and playing a role in the passing role versus the Raiders. I think this number is too short.
