It’s the Season….For Injuries
This late in the NFL season, it is hard to find a team without a bunch of injuries. The Chargers are no exception as they have several injuries to big-name players. Especially on offense.
FANTASY UPDATE: Austin Ekeler (quad) expected to play tonight. Keenan Allen (hamstring) & Mike Williams (back) will both be true game time decisions. Both were a little banged up last week and the short turn around doesn’t help

WR Mike Williams, listed as questionable for tonight due to back injury, is not expected to play vs. Raiders, per sources.
Chargers concerned they won’t have Keenan Allen (hamstring), who if he does play is likely to be limited.

It’s always difficult to bet on a team on a Thursday night. Both teams are on a short week and the road team has extra travel to be concerned with. The Chargers are just 1-6 against the spread (ATS) in the last seven games and they have given up on their head coach, although they did win the last game against the Falcons. The early and late betting action is on the Raiders, but the point-spread has dropped. Las Vegas started out as (-3.5) favorites and that line is now down to (-3) at most sportsbooks.
Chargers vs Raiders pick against the spread
Since the Raiders are in the playoff race, this may be tempting to bet. However, this is a team that only averages 22 points per game and has not scored more than 20 points in the last three outings. Justin Herbert is still playing hard for the Bolts and they are 32-15-4 ATS in the last 51 games as a road underdog. Finally, the Chargers have covered 4 out of 5 on Thursday night and the underdog is 17-6 ATS in the last 23 meetings in this series.
