Los Angeles finally got their first win of the season with a win on the road against the Minnesota Vikings in week 3 while the Las Vegas Raiders have lost two games in a row after winning in week 1 of the NFL season against the Denver Broncos. Will the Chargers get to .500 on the year or will the Raiders end their two-game losing streak in week 4 of the NFL season? Let’s take a closer look at how these teams are faring this season.
The Las Vegas Raiders enter this game with a record of 1-2 following an 18-23 loss at home against the Pittsburgh Steelers while failing to cover the 3-point spread as a home favorite in week 3 of the NFL season. Las Vegas scored 18 points while compiling a total of 362 yards offensively which included 324 passing yards and 69 rushing yards while allowing 23 points and 333 total yards defensively which included 235 passing yards and 105 rushing yards. Jimmy Garoppolo led the team in passing, completing 28 of 44 attempts for 324 yards with two touchdowns and three interceptions while adding seven rushing yards.

BookMaker has the Los Angeles Chargers listed as 6-point favorites at home against the Las Vegas Raiders on Sunday afternoon in week 4 of the NFL season. The teams have split the last ten games in the series while Las Vegas has won two of the last three contests while going 2-1 ATS in those matchups. Las Vegas is 1-2 ATS overall, 1-1 ATS on the road, 1-1 ATS as an underdog, and 1-0 ATS in division games this season while the Los Angeles Chargers are 1-2 ATS overall, 0-1 ATS at home, and 1-2 ATS as a favorite on the year.
Los Angeles is the more talented team this season, however, Las Vegas has been the better team most recently in the series, winning two of the last three games. The Raiders are 2-1 ATS in the last three games in the series. As a result, I am taking the Las Vegas Raiders +6 on the road against the Los Angeles Chargers on BookMaker for this matchup in week 4 of the NFL season.
