Buying the Bolts?
The Chargers currently hold the last seed in the AFC Playoffs. A win over the Las Vegas Raiders will seal a playoff spot for QB Justin Herbert and the LA Chargers. With this scenario in mind, the public is betting on the Bolts to win and cover against Las Vegas. Over 60 percent of the wagers in this game are on the Chargers -3. But it may not be that easy because the Raiders are red-hot and they also still have a chance to make it to the postseason.
Are You Ready for the Raiders?
Say what you want about this team, but they never give up. After a difficult start to the season to include losing Jon Gruden, it is amazing that they have a chance to make the playoffs at all. The Raiders have already lost to the Chargers once this year and they are 1-5 against the spread in the last six meetings. However, this game is at home and everything is on the line.
2022 Week 18 Chargers vs Raiders Predictions
In a game with everything on the line, taking the points and the underdog is the only way to go. The underdog is 18-7 ATS in the last 25 meetings and the Chargers are just 2-6 ATS in the last eight games against the AFC. The Raiders are riding a three-game winning streak and they are running the ball as good as they have all season. Josh Jacobs is running well and he will exploit a Chargers defense that allows 136 rushing yards per game. This takes the pressure off Derek Carr and allows the offense to be productive. The Chargers are 0-2 ATS as road favorites and they stumble in the finale. The Raiders get the win in the biggest game of the week.
