7* Sunday NFL SD/OAK
San Diego vs. Oakland,
10/06/2013 23:30 EDT,
Score: 17 - 27
Point Spread: +5/-110 Oakland
The Oakland Raiders host the San Diego Chargers on Sunday night in Week 5 of the NFL season. Oakland is coming off a 24-14 loss to Washington, while San Diego is coming off a 30-21 win over Dallas.
San Diego is 2-2 on the season, but a closer look at their games shows they might not be able to build up the margin necessary to cover this spread.
San Diego's two wins have been close, with a three-point win over Philadelphia, and a nine-point win over Dallas, but late in that game the Cowboys fumbled by the goal line, and that score would have brought the Cowboys within a field goal.
The Raiders lost to Washington lsat weekend, but they've played quite well defensively at home, and the presence of Terrelle Pryor running the offense might have been enough to push them over the top last weekend.
The Raiders are ailing in the backfield, but Rashad Jennings showed last week that he can be the guy to carry the load.
Facing a sketchy San Diego defense that is now without Dwight Freeney, the Oakland offense could feast.
The Raiders are 6-2 ATS in the last eight meetings between these teams.
Good Luck, Razor Ray
