Los Angeles Chargers Vs. Oakland Raiders NFL Week 10 Betting Picks And Odds
An AFC West battle will be waiting for us on Thursday Night. The LA Chargers and Oakland Raiders are running out of chances to turn their season around.
That’s the reason this Week 10 TNF meeting becomes a must-win scenario for both. The Chargers and Raiders were big winners last weekend.
Whoever wins this contest could find enough fuel to put together a winning streak as we enter the second half the year. Let’s breakdown this divisional matchup.

The game opened as a pick’em, but it quickly moved to the Chargers -1. Despite playing on the road in a short week, 57% of the betting public is trusting Los Angeles to win and cover the spread.
The Los Angeles Chargers’ Edge Vs. The Raiders
The Chargers have won two in a row and currently are sitting with a 4-5 record in third place of the AFC West. Their most impressive win of the season was last Sunday when they clobbered the Green Bay Packers 26-11.
The result of the game doesn’t reflect the totality of the domination shown by the Chargers. Los Angeles outgained Green Bay 159-45 in rushing yards and 442-184 in total yards.
The Offensive Coordinators’ Impact
Shane Steichen took over as offensive coordinator last week, and the change had an immediate impact. The Chargers ran all over the Packers with the one-and-two punch between tailbacks Melvin Gordon and Austin Ekeler.
The team also unleashed WR Mike Williams, who had been too quiet in the first half of the season. Williams recorded 111 receiving yards in three receptions and was a nightmare for the Green Bay Packers’ secondary defense in extended plays.
The Chargers still are a couple of games behind in the wildcard race. However, their last two performances have been good enough to think they might be suited for a comeback in the last part of the year.
The Oakland Raiders’ Edge Vs. the Chargers
I know a 4-4 record doesn’t sound like much, but considering the expectations surrounding the Raiders before the season, the team has done a better job than expected.
The Raiders finally played at home last weekend after being on the road for over a month. Their win 31-24 over the Detroit Lions didn’t come easy, but to be fair, nothing has this year.
Oakland has scored at least 24 points in their last five games. The team can only win if their offense outscores the opponent.
One Of The Best Rookies In The NFL
Their defense can’t stop anybody to save their life, which means low scoring games will never be a part of the team this season. The offense has one of the best rookies in the NFL in Josh Jacobs.
The running back had 28 carries for 120 yards and two touchdowns against the Lions on Sunday, despite dealing with a shoulder injury all week.
Jacobs has recorded three games with at least 120 rushing yards this season. He’s the best asset the Raiders have, and they need to ride him the rest of the year to have a shot a playoff spot.
Los Angeles Chargers At Oakland Raiders NFL Week 10 Prediction
Both teams recorded excellent wins on Sunday, but the victory the Chargers had over the Packers gives the team some validation. It reminded us why many picked this team to be inside the playoffs and in many cases, even reaching the AFC championship game.
The Chargers are very talented on both sides of the ball, and last weekend, it was a reminder for them and us. The Raiders have been a great storyline this season as well.
They have stolen a few games that nobody gave them a chance, but it’s safe to say they are not as talented as the LA Chargers. Oakland’s defense is their most significant liability, especially defending the pass.
The Raiders Defense
The Raiders have the worst passing defense in the entire league, allowing 297.5 passing yards per game. It’s even worse than the Dolphins, Jets, Buccaneers, and Cardinals, and that’s saying a lot.
Another thing to know is Chargers QB Philip Rivers leads the league with 2609 passing yards. Rivers hasn’t had a good year, but he’s not afraid to sling it. On Thursday, he should have a lot of open field to find his receivers as many times as he wants. Bet Chargers -1.
