Justin Herbert is a gunslinger, man! I just don’t think the Charger will be completely out of a game as long as he’s throwing the rock, since coming in for Tyrod Taylor this season he’s thrown for 15 TD’s against only 5 INT’s and even in their losses he’s kept them in every game and although this Raider pass defense showed out against Baker Mayfield and the Browns last week I think Herbert is a different proposition entirely and this Raider defense has been poor all season up until last week.
I really think this is a game that could go either way. If the Raiders can establish the run and get Josh Jacobs going I like them to pick up the win and I think they can edge out a close one here.
As for my best bet I’m perplexed by Justin Herbert’s U/O passing yards number at 259.5. Herbert hasn’t had a game in which he’s thrown for under 264 yards yet this season and this Raider pass defense is nothing special.
PREDICTION: RAIDERS 30 – 27 CHARGERS
BEST BET: Justin Herbert over 259.5 passing yards – 5/6 with SkyBet. 2 point bet.
