In the second half of the Monday Night Football doubleheader, Philip Rivers and the San Diego Chargers visit Carson Palmer and the Oakland Raiders in a meeting of bitter AFC West rivals. The Raiders are one-point home favorites (-120 if you prefer the money line), while the Over/Under is at 46.5 points. The Chargers ended last season with a 38-26 win in Oakland, coming in as 2.5-point road underdogs.

San Diego’s win at Oakland on New Year’s Day ended a streak of five straight games that the Raiders had beaten the spread against the Chargers, with the Raiders winning the last three contests straight up.  The last five times the Chargers have played in Oakland, the games went Over.

Last season, the Chargers and Raiders were both 8-8, finishing tied for first place in the West but missing the playoffs because of a tiebreaker with Tim Tebow’s Denver Broncos. San Diego was 3-5 on the road and 1-1 on Monday Night Football. Oakland went 3-5 at home and won their only Monday Night Football appearance — a 23-20 Week 1 road win against the Kyle Orton-led Broncos.

Last season, ten of 16 Chargers games totalled more than 46.5 points, including six of eight San Diego road contests. Nine of 16 Raiders games went Over 46.5 points, including five of eight Oakland home games.

If were a gambling man, I’d take the Chargers straight up and the Over.
