Oakland Raiders @ Los Angeles Chargers (-6.5)
The Oakland Raiders are still not very good. Despite Jon Gruden getting his first win since returning from the broadcast booth, this is still a team you don’t want to put your horse on.
The Chargers, on the other hand, don’t seem to like covering spreads. Against C.J. Beathard and the 49ers, they were not able to blow them out, and came out with a close win. Here, the Chargers are supposed to beat the Raiders by at least a touchdown.
Derek Carr has looked alright. When you’re giving him so many points, you just have to take them. The Chargers had trouble blowing out the Bills in Josh Allen’s first ever start. This team will be able to keep it close.
Los Angeles (C) 24, Oakland 20
Arizona Cardinals @ San Francisco 49ers (-4)
Speaking of the 49ers, it’s hard to believe that they are getting more than a field goal against any team, but that shows where the Arizona Cardinals lie. Their offense is just so bad. The 49ers offense was underestimated last week after Jimmy Garoppolo went down.
The Cardinals are too bad at football to bet on. This line is too high, but you don’t want to hitch your ride to Arizona. It’s just bad business.
