Chargers/Raiders Over 50.5
The Raiders Defense is bad because they keep trading away their best players and they can’t get after the QB. Phillip Rivers should dice this team up today and Melvin Gordon should have a huge game running the ball. If the Raiders would just throw the ball down the field they would be as good an offense as any team in the league. This offensive unit for Oakland, even after trading Cooper, has a lot of talent that is not being used correctly. Dinking and dunking doesn’t work in the NFL anymore. You must take your deep shots. The Chargers secondary has quite a few injuries to their corners this year so I do believe Oakland matches up well with their receivers. Jon Gruden is losing confidence from his fans fast. This Oakland team is clearly in tank mode, but you have to give the fans a show along the way. Look for the Raiders to have a decent day on offense and for this to be a high scoring game. Take the Over.
