The Raiders have run the ball better in recent weeks and will get plenty of yards on the ground against the Chargers, who have one of the worst run defenses in the league. Even though the Chargers have one of the best passing games in the league, they will have a hard time picking up yards against the Raiders, who have the ninth-best pass defense in the league, so go with the Raiders to cover the spread and the over.
