Playoff Push: Raiders Must Beat Chargers on Thursday Night Football
Thursday Night Football Features Must Win For Raiders Over Chargers
The Las Vegas Raiders (7-6) and Los Angeles Chargers (4-9) will draw plenty of attention and betting interest as the stand alone game on Thursday Night Football. The Raiders are down to the river card and need to hit a 5-outer to stay alive in the AFC playoff picture.
I would like to see the Raiders win, and there is “more public money” on Las Vegas. But I wouldn’t bet on it. William Hill director of trading Nick Bogdanovich told me “Early betting is all on Raiders.” William Hill opened the Raiders -3 and moved up to -3.5
I provided some insight and analysis on the Raiders vs Chargers game at Offshore Gaming Association, along with some player prop bets of interest.
I chip-in more in my Raiders and Chargers Thursday Night Football match-up in my article and update at Forbes, where we’ve hit the green with three straight player prop winners offered on the Browns RB Kareem Hunt, Patriots QB Cam Newton and Titans RB Derrick Henry.
Chargers RB Austin Ekeler – over 39.5 receiving yards
Was available at DraftKings, and since bet up to 44.5.
Raiders QB Derek Car – under 270.5 passing yards
Was available at BetMGM, and since bet down to 264.5
Millions of dollars changed hands on the final play of the Week 14 Monday Night Football game between the Browns and Ravens when Baltimore got a saftey on the final play of the game. The 47-42 Ravens win as 3-point favorite had some wild swings and plays in the final two minutes that had bettors holding out hope for the best result. We lost the unfortunate flip on the Browns.
Hopefully the Chargers don’t pull another circus act like last week’s fiasco vs the Falcons before halftime. Regardless, the number moves in player props tells you the opportunity available to cash in on other betting options.
You can bet on it.
