You can make a case for either team here, as there’s talent on both sides, and they’ve been a bit underachieving. The Los Angeles Chargers are probably the better team, and they’re starting to get healthy, but all of their games come down to the wire and I don’t like them in the favorite role if we’re being honest. The Raiders still have issues, but they’re coming off back to back overtime wins, and that could do wonders for their confidence. The Raiders are at home. I'll take the Raiders in this toss up spot.
