The Chargers escaped Minnesota with its first win, but couldn't remain healthy. The team lost star wide receivers Mike Williams, but who benefits from his lost usage.
Los Angeles will face a lackluster Raiders secondary, can rookie Quentin Johnston break out in his fourth pro game? What about using the Chargers pass-heavy offense to make not one, but two valuable prop bets?
We got you covered with our three favorite Chargers prop bets.
Best Prop Bets for Raiders vs. Chargers
- Quentin Johnson Anytime TD Scorer
- Justin Herbert OVER 281.5 Passing Yards
- Joshua Kelley UNDER 51.5 Rushing Yards
Quentin Johnson Anytime TD Scorer
The first round pick is going to step in for Mike Williams after the stud receiver went down with a season-ending injury.
Johnston only has eight targets on the year, but he is a massive red zone threat at 6'4" 215 and will take on a suspect Raiders secondary that has allowed more than two touchdown passes per game this season, 27th in the NFL.
Justin Herbert OVER 281.5 Passing Yards
Herbert passed for over 400 yards in last week's win at Minnesota, and now returns home to face a Raiders secondary that won't be able to slow down the Los Angeles passing game, even without Williams.
Los Angeles is passing nearly 63% of the time this season, top 10 in the NFL, making a point under new offensive coordinator Kellen Moore to put the ball in Herbert's hands and push it down the field.
This is a play that blends both the volume and potency of the Chargers passing game with Herbert at the helm into an over play.

Joshua Kelley UNDER 51.5 Rushing Yards
Kelley has been the bell cow back as the Chargers wait for Austin Ekeler to return from an ankle injury, but he hasn't had much success this season. Ironically, his best game came when Ekeler was on the field.
After rushing for 91 yards on 16 carries against the Dolphins in Week 1, Kelley has combined for 24 carries for 51 yards.
While I expect the Chargers to be ahead in this game, I'm not interested in trusting the team's running back to get to an above average production given the team's propensity to pass the ball this season. This number is simply too high give his recent games.
