3. The LA Chargers win by 10+ points
We try and be as subjective as possible here at Bolt Beat. Of course, we are Charger fans but it would be a disservice to be nothing but optimistic and biased. That being said, it is hard to see the Chargers losing this game, let alone playing a close game with the Raiders.
Yes, we know the Raiders are 3-0 and have played three decent teams and yes, the Chargers are only three-point favorites at home. Sure, there is going to be a decent amount of Raider fans at this game as well, taking away the home-field advantage.
It is just hard to see the Raiders playing a close game in this one. The Chargers match up extremely well with the Raiders and while they have been good this season, the talent on the roster is overperforming.
The Chargers are going to be able to score all over Gus Bradley's defense. The Raiders' defense has not even been that good to start the season and as mentioned, are now facing the best vertical offense that they have faced.
Defensively, the Chargers have the keys to slow the Raiders down. Darren Waller is a threat but the Chargers have one of the only players in the league you can stick on him to slow him down in Derwin James.
I just do not see how the Raiders can keep up with the offensive attack that the Chargers are going to have in this one. The Bolts will cover comfortably.
