Thursday Night Football showcases two battling rivals from the AFC West when the Las Vegas Raiders host the Los Angeles Chargers. Let's head into the weekend with some cash in the bank!

The weeks are flying by as we approach Christmas and TNF action is already upon us. As keen bettors, we're not complaining because it's another opportunity to capitalize on DimersBOT's advanced predictive analytics and cash some tickets.

The Chargers FINALLY claimed a clutch dub last week after consistently being on the end of last-minute defeats. While fans are still calling for the coach's head, it would've been pleasing for Chargers spread and/or moneyline bettors alike. The Raiders didn't fare so well at home against the Colts, but if you tailed our moneyline and spread picks for that game last week you would've been one happy bettor!

Let's break this one down and see how we can find some value against the sportsbooks. If you're more of a numbers only guy, our NFL Bet Hub shows all the numbers and probabilities you need to make the play this Thursday night.

💪 Spread

The Raiders are 7-6 ATS (against the spread) this season while the Chargers have covered 6 times out of 13 which, in theory, makes each of these teams a 50-50 chance of covering. The current spread set by the books suggests a tight affair but keep in mind there are a host of injuries in this one that could sway DimersBOT's predictions as injury news comes out. Be sure to check back regularly before taking the spread shown below.

🚀 Over/Under

The total game points line set by the books opened at 55.5 points at the beginning of the week but has dropped since then. At the time of writing, we have this game going at the Under. Both teams just don't seem to have the scoring capability to get this one to where it needs to go to play the Over. Like the spread, check back here before the game as DimersBOT does its thing pending new information and data as it comes to light.

💵 Moneyline

The Chargers would love nothing more than to derail the Raiders hopes of a playoffs berth and at the time of writing we have them going close to doing so. If they can field a healthy squad that will go a long way to setting up the sort of passing game that could knock the Raiders over. If you like betting head-to-head, this moneyline play is for you and we've identified the best value in the market and the sportsbook to do it with.

 
 

🏈 Dimers' take-out

The Raiders were thoroughly outplayed and you don't need to be a sharp to know they'll be refocused this week. Our model has Josh Jacobs leading the way with an anytime TD. Austin Ekeler is nice and settled back into this Chargers lineup and he's our best pick for a Bolts TD. Bettors should be LOVING Keenan Allen should he play on Thursday as he's averaging what seems like a TD a game this season. If he's okay to play, get him in your FanDuel Sportsbook or PointsBet same game parlay as they offer the ability to combine multiple bets in a single game. Good luck out there bettors! Shoot your best shot and don't forget to shoot us a message if you win big (and remember us when you're famous)!
