Oddsmakers are expecting a high-scoring affair on Thursday Night Football.

With an over/under of 53.5, Chargers vs. Raiders has the highest total of NFL Week 15, so expect plenty of points tonight.

But what does that mean for NFL bettors? Will there be enough offense to reach 54 total points scored? Or does the current number reflect an overreaction that leans toward value on the under?

Thankfully, our NFL PRO Report details exactly how to bet Chargers vs. Raiders.

NFL Picks: Chargers vs. Raiders

Sharp Action

After opening at 55, the Chargers vs. Raiders over/under has dropped to a consensus of 53.5 (click here the latest Thursday Night Football odds).

Sharps, potentially reacting to the news that explosive rookie wire receiver Henry Ruggs III will not play tonight for Las Vegas after being placed on the reserve/COVID-19 list, have popped this under four separate times, helping explain the line movement.

Big Money

If four market-moving floods of money aren’t enough to convince how the pros are playing Chargers vs. Raiders, then perhaps the bets-vs.-dollars splits will put you over the top.

Just 32% of the bets have come in on the under, yet those tickets represent 51% of the money.

It often takes money to move lines, and this confirms that the larger wagers have landed on the under as well.

PRO Systems

While Ruggs’ injury should certainly negatively affect the Raiders’ ability to connect on explosive plays downfield, tonight’s game also fits our very profitable Divisional Unders NFL PRO Betting System.

Unders are 204-125-4 (62%) in late-season games between divisional opponents with closing totals of at least 44, and Chargers vs. Raiders is one of four Week 15 games that match this system.
