Follow these Free NFL Thursday Night Football Picks and Predictions on this game between the Los Angeles Chargers vs Las Vegas Raiders. This game is set to kickoff on December 17, 2020 at 8:20pm at Allegiant Stadium in Las Vegas.

The current NFL odds have the Raiders as -3.5 point favorites and the over/under at 54.5 total points. 63 percent of the betting public have their money behind Las Vegas as the home favorite.

These two teams met back in Week 9 where the Raiders on the road got the wild 31-26 win. In that game, Derek Carr only had only 13 completions for 165 total yards, 2 touchdowns. Justin Herbert threw for 28 of 42 completions for 326 total yards and 2 touchdowns.

The LA Chargers come into this game 4-9 overall this season after picking up a win last Sunday 20-17 against the Atlanta Falcons. Rookie quarterback Justin Herbert continues to play pretty impressive. He completed 36 passes for 2 touchdowns and an interception against the Falcons.

The Chargers are a bit banged up both offensively and defensively, but he should be able to duplicate his permanence in week 9 by putting up over 300 yards. When the player prop lines come out, go ahead and take the over on his total passing yards in this game if the line is right, I’ll comment the move below once it’s released.

LA is scoring an average of 22.8 points per game on offense this season and on defense they give up an average of 27.8 points per game.

Los Angeles is 4-1 against the spread in their last 5 games when playing on the road against Las Vegas and the total has gone over in 4 of Chargers’ last 6 games against an opponent in the AFC West.

The Raiders come into this game 7-6 overall and in a must win scenario if they want any miracle chance of getting that AFC wild card spot. They got destroyed on Sunday by the Colts 44-27. Their defense continues to look horrendous and even if they did get that wildcard spot, they seem to be a first round knockout team due to their defensive play. The Colts Jonathan Taylor ran all over the Raiders and the Chargers Austin Ekeler and Kalen Ballage should be able to put up similar stats in this matchup.

The Raiders are ranked tenth in the league on offense, scoring an average of 27 points per game, but have the 3rd worst defense in the nation, giving up an average of 30 points per game on defense.

Las Vegas is 5-2 against the spread in their last 7 games against an opponent in the AFC and the total has gone over in 10 of the Raiders last 13 games.

The best bet on this Thursday Night Football game between the Chargers vs Raiders is to that the Los Angeles Chargers First Half Team Total Over 12.5 Points at the -115 price.
