The Chargers are lacking key ability gamers on either side of the ball, however heart Corey Linsley‘s concussion is the most concerning of those injuries and one that could be moving the line against the Las Vegas Raiders.

Here’s a betting breakdown of Sunday’s matchup between the AFC West rivals:

Chargers at Las Vegas Raiders (PK, 50.5)

Some Southern California residents who spent Thanksgiving Weekend in Sin Metropolis are seemingly making the trek up I-15 once more to look at their beloved Chargers battle the Raiders at Allegiant Stadium. This sport means extra to the Chargers than the Raiders given the positioning for every staff within the standings and the remaining power of schedule. Nevertheless, we’ve seen this line leak right down to a decide ‘em because of the litany of injuries for the Chargers.

Though Derwin James Jr. and Mike Williams will draw the headlines, the most impactful injury for the Chargers this week is Linsley’s concussion. Linsley grades as a top-two heart within the NFL per Professional Soccer Focus and is the unquestioned chief of the offensive line. Trey Pipkins III’s damage is one other massive one because the beginning proper deal with and cluster accidents are all the time noteworthy, however Linsley means all the pieces from a move safety standpoint.

This season’s returns inform us that the Chargers weren’t going to have the ability to run the ball regardless, as they rank thirtieth in yards per carry. Although L.A. is sixth in yards passing and passing touchdowns, it’s price noting that some superior stats like EPA (anticipated factors added) and Success Price think about the Chargers’ passing sport to be beneath common. Offensive line accidents solely decrease the chances for effectivity and success.

Defensively, the Chargers could get somewhat assist if Raiders working again Josh Jacobs isn’t capable of go. The Raiders simply ran for 283 yards on the Seahawks and have almost touched 300 yards passing within the final two video games. I’m nonetheless unsure that will probably be sufficient assist. The Chargers are limping into this sport, whereas it appears as if the Raiders, who’ve received two shut video games in a row after beginning 0-5 in video games determined by six or fewer factors, are on the rise.
