After rallying late for a 28-27 win last week over previously unbeaten Baltimore, the Oakland Raiders look to end a five-game against the spread home losing streak on Sunday, when they host the hard luck San Diego Chargers in an NFL Week 5 betting matchup at Oakland Coliseum.
– Shark Bites
- The Chargers are 9-3 SU in their last 12 games on the road against the Raiders.
- The Raiders are 6-23 ATS in their last 29 games as a favorite of 4.5 or less.

Raider quarterback Derek Carr tossed four touchdown passes and no interception in last week’s win in Baltimore, lifting Oakland to 3-1 SU and ATS this season, including a pair of outright wins as betting underdogs. However, the Raiders still need to overcome a dismal 4-8 SU, 3-9 ATS, record in their past 12 as home chalk.
San Diego blew a fourth-quarter lead for the third time this season in last week’s 35-34 loss to New Orleans as 3.5-point home chalk, leaving them winless SU and ATS in their past two. The Chargers are just 1-10 SU in their past 11 on the road, but have enjoyed success at the sportsbooks, covering in seven of their past eight road dates.
Oakland claimed a pair of SU wins over the Chargers last season, ending a three-game SU slide against San Diego, but has failed to cover in its past four meetings while pegged as a betting favorite.
