Week 13 of the 2022 NFL season includes an AFC West between the Los Angeles Chargers and Las Vegas Raiders. It wasn't pretty, but the Chargers put a two-game losing streak to bed with a hard-fought 25-24 win over the Arizona Cardinals last week.

After going to overtime to beat the Denver Broncos two weeks ago, the Raiders needed an extra frame again to get the 40-34 win against the Seattle Seahawks in Week 12. Veteran running back Josh Jacobs was the star of the show, racking up a mind-blowing 303 yards from scrimmage with two touchdowns on 39 touches (33 carries, 6 catches).

Updated (Sunday, Dec. 4, 12:05 p.m. ET): The odds completely flipped in this matchup. Originally a 1.5-point favorite, the Chargers are now 2.5-point roadunderdogs and the moneyline odds reflect this change. The over/under fell to 49.5 points.

Chargers vs Raiders Prediction & Pick

This game is the second meeting between these AFC West rivals this season. The Chargers beat the Raiders 24-19 in Week 1, highlighted by a three-touchdown performance from Los Angeles QB Justin Herbert.

Having said that, I expect the Raiders to get their win back this week. After Las Vegas discovered that feeding the ball to Jacobs is a winning recipe, the Silver and Black get to go up against a Chargers frontline that surrenders 151.4 rushing yards per game (fifth-worst) while allowing 14 TDs to running backs this season.

Even though Jacobs probably won't topple 300 scrimmage yards again, he should see a lot of action here (assuming that he's healthy enough to play). The Chargers just don't have a good defense and with Las Vegas having the crowd's support, I see the Raiders controlling a decent chunk of this matchup.

Back the Raiders winning in what will likely be another high-scoring outing.

Final Score Prediction: Raiders: 28 | Chargers: 25

Chargers vs Raiders Betting Trends

- The Chargers are 4-2 straight up in their last six road games.
- Las Vegas is 5-1 against the spread (ATS) in its last six games against the AFC West.
- The total has hit the over in five of the Chargers' last six games played in December.
- The total has hit the over in four of Las Vegas' last five home games.

Chargers vs Raiders Best Bet

With how bad both defenses have been in 2022, bettors should expect a lot of scoring Sunday. In addition to the Chargers and Raiders allowing a combined 50.7 PPG this season, the average total of their last seven games being exactly 51 points, the over on the total looks appetizing.

Bet: Over 50.5 Points (-110)
