This Christmas Eve, there is one game slated, and that is between the Oakland Raiders and their division rival San Diego Chargers. Kickoff is at 5:25 PST in Oakland. The Raiders are currently a 5 point favorite, and they are -225 with the money line. San Diego is +205. The over/ under is 47 points.
San Diego is 6-8 against the spread this year. They are 4-4 as the underdog and 4-2 as the away team. Oakland is 7-7 overall this year against the spread. They are 1-3 as the favorite and 2-5 as the home team. ESPN gives Oakland a 62.1% chance of winning this game. While both these teams are not vying for a playoff spot, the bigger story is that Christmas Eve could be the last time the San Diego Chargers and Oakland Raiders meet while residing in different cities. It might also be the final game the Silver and Black play in the East Bay.
Time will tell. I think this will be an offensive game. It’s Christmas, the only game slated, nationally televised, and both teams have nothing much to play for, and I think they both put on an offensive show, so I would take the over for this one.
