3. The LA Chargers and Las Vegas Raiders combine for at least 65 points
This is going to be one of the highest-scoring games of the week and is going to send Thursday Night Football off in style. NFL fans will get a treat in this game as it will be a scoring clinic, with the Raiders and Chargers scoring, at least, a combined 65 points.
Neither of these teams have a particularly great defense and the combination of Waller’s big day and Justin Herbert’s clinical scoring will lead to a lot of points.
The Raiders’ defense has just been a points factory this season, especially in recent weeks. Las Vegas ranks 30th in points allowed per game (30.1) and has allowed an average of 37.5 points over their last four games.
The Chargers just allowed the New England Patriots to score 45 points, and while a lot of the blame was on special teams, they still do not have this elite lockdown defense that is going to stifle a Raiders team that is pushing for a playoff spot.
According to The Action Network, the total for this game has been set at 52.5 points, which should be blown out of the water if these bold predictions are correct.
If anything, expect a fun game on Thursday night. That is at least something to be excited about if you are an LA Chargers fan.
