Los Angeles Chargers at Oakland Raiders: 3 bold predictions
Raiders win by double digits
The Raiders moved back to .500 on the season, with four wins to match four losses so far this season. Of those four wins, Oakland has come out on top in each of those contests by a single possession (eight points or fewer). The Chargers are -1 favorites, so many are betting that Thursday night’s game will be a close one.
Consider the script flipped, where the Raiders ride the momentum heading into Week 10 to make a commanding statement against their division rival. The offense is clicking, and the defense, though still in the works, will make stops when needed.
Oakland gets the victory, and for the first time, this season they will do so by double digits and by a margin of two possessions. Thrilling victories that come down to the final possession may be (temporarily) exciting, but the Raiders will take care of business early against Los Angeles.
