Los Angeles seeks a rare win over a division rival

The Los Angeles Chargers have been the punching bag of the AFC West in recent seasons with a 1-15 SU and 6-9-1 ATS record against their division foes. The Chargers will try to turn their luck around this Sunday on the road against the Oakland Raiders.

SHARK BITES
  • The Chargers are 20-7 ATS in their last 27 games on the road against the Raiders.
  • The Raiders are 2-12 SU in their last 14 games in Week 6.
  • The total has gone OVER in seven of the Chargers’ last 10 games on the road against the Raiders.

Los Angeles finally snapped out of an 0-9 SU and 0-8-1 ATS slump with its 27-22 win on the road against the New York Giants on Sunday. Philip Rivers threw for three touchdowns and just one interception, outlasting the Giants in a game that sometimes felt like neither team could find a way to win. After getting the job done in a morning game, the Chargers will now try to snap an 0-7 SU and ATS record in their last seven late-afternoon games.

With Derek Carr sidelined with a back injury, the Oakland Raiders lacked their usual punch on offense Sunday, falling to the Baltimore Ravens 30-17. Since kicking off the season with a 2-0 SU and ATS record, the Raiders have gone 0-3 SU and ATS over their last three games. Jack Del Rio indicated after Sunday’s loss that he expects Carr to be ready for this game.
