The San Diego Chargers will travel to face the Oakland Raiders in an AFC West matchup in Week 5. San Diego is fresh off a comeback win against the Dallas Cowboys, and sits at 2-2 on the season. Oakland was dominated by the Denver Broncos on Monday Night Football in Week 4, and is at 1-3 on the season, with its lone win being a 19-9 victory over the lowly Jacksonville Jaguars.
Despite playing a road game, the Chargers opened as favorites for this one, albeit narrowly at 2.5 points, according to OddsShark. The line has moved throughout the week, however, with some books having them favored by as much as 5 points, though the majority are sitting at 4.5 points.
It's likely that oddsmakers consider the Chargers significantly better than the Raiders, but the divisional rivalry and the game being in Oakland makes things a bit closer on the final line. It will be interesting to see if it moves any more throughout the week.
The over/under for the matchup is set at 44.5 points and it has not moved much. The total has gone over in five of San Diego's last six games, and under in nine of Oakland's last 11 games.
