Chargers at Raiders NFL Monday Night Football Handicapping Tips

Chargers Begin Journey Towards Another AFC West Title Tonight

San Diego has plenty of questions surrounding it prior to tonight’s season opener with the Raiders in Oakland. Can Philip Rivers carry the team with all of the injuries around him? Two of the team’s impact offensive players are hurt at the moment in running back Ryan Matthews and wide receiver Vincent Brown. Matthews has been ruled out of tonight’s game against the Raiders.

Raiders Hope McFadden Stays Healthy This Year

Darren McFadden has the potential to be one of the most explosive running backs in the entire NFL but has had trouble staying healthy during his brief career. He is healthy right now, which is all that matters, as his Raiders host the Chargers Monday night. Carson Palmer returns to the Raiders for his first full season in Oakland after joining the team one-quarter of the way into the season last year. Palmer will need McFadden to stay healthy if the two hope to lead Oakland to the playoffs.

Bet365.com is one of the top online sportsbooks for sports betting today and the sportsbook has the San Diego Chargers at +1 (20/23) for the spread and 20/21 with the moneyline over the Oakland Raiders on Monday September 10, 2012 at 10:15 PM ET. Despite being on the road, the Chargers are the best bet going into tonight’s game against the Raiders.
