Los Angeles Chargers Vs. Las Vegas Raiders

  • The total for the Las Vegas Raiders and Los Angeles Chargers is set at 51.5.
  • The Chargers have (+105) odds to cover the 0.5-point first-quarter spread.
  • Bryan Edwards’ receiving total is set at 35.5 yards with a (-115) betting line on both sides.

LOS ANGELES – The Monday Night Football game for Week 4 will be between the Las Vegas Raiders and Los Angeles Chargers.

Best Game Line: UNDER 51.5 Points

Both the Los Angeles Chargers and Las Vegas Raiders have a respectable defense. They combine to allow a total of 44 points per game while their offenses total about 53 points per game. Regulated sports betting sites may have set the total a bit too high.

Raiders Vs. Chargers Total

  • OVER 51.5 -110
  • UNDER 51.5 -110

The Chargers rush defense is the worst in the NFL as they allow 170 rushing yards per game. While this could subject the Chargers to points allowed, it should also make Las Vegas run the ball more frequently and chew up some of the clock. Furthermore, both teams are in the bottom 10 for Red Zone scoring percentage, which could lead to more field goals than touchdowns.

Best Game Prop: Chargers First Quarter Spread

The Chargers are slightly favored on the game but given plus-money odds to win the first quarter. Neither team is too spectacular in first-quarter scoring (1.7 ppg LVR, 3.3 ppg LAC), but NFL betting sites may still be leaving too much value on the table.

First Quarter Spread Odds

  • Las Vegas Raiders +0.5 -125
  • Los Angeles Chargers -0.5 +105

The Raiders are allowing the most first-quarter points in the league with an average of 7.0 per game. With the total for the opening quarter set at 10 points, online sportsbooks are seemingly expecting one team to score a touchdown and, if the trends continue, it will likely be the Chargers.

Best Player Prop: Bryan Edwards Receiving Yards

WR Bryan Edwards has been proving sportsbooks wrong all year. He’s gone OVER his receiving yards total each game and has started a trend of significantly passing it. Two of his three games this year have had at least 80 yards and yet his total is set at less than half of that.

Bryan Edwards Receiving Yards

  • OVER 35.5 -115
  • UNDER 35.5 -115

The Las Vegas passing offense averages 401 yards per game, so to bet on the guy who has led his team in snap share each week to get less than 10% of the average seems like a steal, especially at (-115) odds.

The kickoff is set for 8:15 p.m. EST and can be seen on ESPN and ABC.
