The Las Vegas Raiders (5-8) will be attempting to snap a three-game losing streak against the Los Angeles Chargers (5-8). Despite that, the Raiders are the favorites, expected to win by at least a field goal but less than a touchdown (currently -3). 

The Chargers were defeated 24-7 by the Denver Broncos in Week 14, while the Raiders were shut out in a 3-0 loss to the Minnesota Vikings

Pick via FOX Sports Betting Analyst Will Hill

It’s the matchup we’ve been waiting for all year, Easton Stick vs. Aiden O’Connell

Well, it’s a matchup, and it’s a low total but I’m not sure if it’s quite low enough. 

The Raiders are coming off of a game where the first points weren’t scored until the final minutes of the fourth quarter, as they lost 3-0 to the Vikings. 

With Justin Herbert sidelined, Easton Stick gets his first career start for a Chargers team that is likely to reboot their organization in a month when the season ends. 

I can’t imagine much offense here. Let’s go Under the total. 

PICK: Under 34 points scored by both teams combined
