Chargers vs Raiders Final NFL Betting Analysis

The Raiders don’t have any heart left. Coach Jon Gruden lost this team way before Week 9 when San Francisco beat them 34-3. Oakland has gone so far as to cut defensive captain Bruce Irvin. That’s on top of the massive changes the Raiders have already undergone this season.

Oakland’s just a bad football team that’s wandering aimlessly around the league looking for an identity. They have no shot of keeping this one close against one of the hottest, most well-coached squads in the NFL.

Sure, it’s a rivalry, but the Raiders are toast before they even get out of the locker room.
