Tony Bruno is Mr. Thursday Night for his Stone Cold Lead Pipe Locks: NFL Week 10 Thursday Night Edition
Los Angeles Chargers @ Oakland Raiders 8:20pm EST
The last regular season game ever for Phillip Rivers and the Chargers in the Oakland coliseum is one of the many stories in this storied AFC west rivalry. Rivers has been to the Black Hole 13 times. Only 9 current Raiders have played more games there. Huge game for both teams in the playoff chase. Oakland is 4-4, LA 5-4 and playing better the last 2 weeks with a new offensive coordinator simplifying the running game.Both teams can score and both teams also give up a lot of pts, but the UNDER has cashed in the last 5 matchups. Jon Gruden is getting amazing performances out of 3 rookies in RB Josh Jacobs, TE Foster Moreau and WR Hunter Renfro.Chargers big edge is up front as Joey Bosa, Melvin Ingraham and the D-Line has been fierce while the Raiders O line is banged up at left tackle and center. Huge issue!
Chargers 4-0 and straight up ATS against the Raiders last 2 seasons and Oakland has only won back to back games once this season: both on the road vs Colts and Bears.Raiders are 1 1/2 pt dogs and TNF favorites have cashed only 2 times in 9 games. The ONLY road favorite to win and cover on TNF Football was Week 7 Chiefs blowout of the Broncos 30-3. So what gives tonight?Mr Thursday Night has been the undisputed best in all the land on Thursdays and this is a tough one. This line flipped from Oakland – 1 1/2 to LA – 1 1/2 and it’s all due to the Chargers trench advantage. Until the Raiders find a way to play better defense, I have to take the Chargers and lay the 1 1/2 pts.
