Raiders vs. Chargers NFL Game Preview

These two teams met up two times throughout last season. Los Angeles hosted the first game of the season, but were not able to win at home. Derek Carr had two passing touchdowns as the Raiders won 31-26. The second game was in Las Vegas. Justin Herbert had three total touchdowns in the final meeting to lead the Chargers to a 30-27 win in overtime.

The Raiders and Chargers have met up 123 times throughout the all-time series. Las Vegas leads that series 66-55-2. The Raiders have won three of their last four games against Los Angeles and two in a row on the road. The Chargers will look to bounce back with a big win on Monday Night Football in this one to take a step up in the division.

These two teams look similar to last season, which should lead to another exciting game. Justin Herbert remains the Quarterback for Los Angeles entering this one, while Derek Carr is the QB for the Raiders. Las Vegas has been off to a hot start, especially on offense this season. The Chargers look better all-around this season and will look for their first win at home on the season on Monday Night.

Free Bet and Game Prediction: Los Angeles Chargers -3 (-116)

These two teams have had some impressive wins throughout the first few weeks of the season and will look for a big win on Monday Night Football. Los Angeles has dropped their last two home games to the Raiders, but I think they will bounce back in this one. The Chargers are 0-1 at home this season, but I think they will turn it around with a win in this one.

Justin Herbert has continued off his Rookie of the Year campaign with a strong start this season. Herbert had passed for 956 yards, six touchdowns and three interceptions. Derek Carr has also had a hot start to the new season. Carr has thrown for 1203 yards, six touchdowns and two interceptions. If either Quarterback can control this one, it could be enough for a big win.

The Chargers are coming off one of the most impressive wins of the young season, winning in Arrowhead in Week 2. Las Vegas has looked strong this season as well, but the Raiders looked a bit weak against the Dolphins. I think that Los Angeles can earn a big win in this one. As only slight favorites with a good line, I really like the value on the Chargers at home on Monday Night Football.

The Bet
Los Angeles Chargers -3
-116
