Raiders vs. Chargers: Week 16 Thursday PicksPosted: December 24, 2015
Here are Will and Derek’s picks for the Week 16 Thursday night game. Picks for the remainder of the games will run on Friday.
(Home team in caps. Line per VegasInsider.com consensus.)
OAKLAND (-5.5) vs. San Diego
Derek: This is the final Thursday night game of the year, and possibly the final professional football game ever played in Oakland. The Chargers used their “maybe the last home game ever” status to cruise to a win last week, and I could see the Raiders doing the same. This will also be the final home game of Charles Woodson’s career, after all. I’ll take the home team.
Will: I have never had much affinity for either the Chargers or Raiders, but man, it sucks when your team moves. I imagine being stuck in limbo is even worse. The darkly bright side is that the Oakland crowd will be insane. I too think that will push them over the top. Raiders it is.
