Football is back. The Chargers take on the Raiders in week 1. Can Gerald Everett produce? John Hyslop answers.

Chargers vs Raiders Predictions, Player Prop Pick, Odds: Can Gerald Everett Produce?

Football is back and my brain simply doesn't work for anything else at the moment. They say you're not supposed to go wild on Week 1 of the NFL season but that seems like bad advice. How many Week 1s do we even get in our lives? We're just supposed to sit on our hands and not have way too many bets out? That's ridiculous. I'm not sure if they've done a study on this or not but if they crunched the numbers, I'm certain that people that have way too many bets on Week 1 have more fun than people that don't have way too many bets on Week 1. It's just science. There's nothing like that moment of clarity when you're sitting on your couch on Sunday and you realize that you don't even know what you're rooting for because you have so many bets out. It's an amazing feeling. So if you want that feeling, then go nuts and if you need another pick, take this one. As of right now, it has a 0.0% chance of losing. That's not bad.

Chargers vs Raiders Player Prop Pick

Gerald Everett Over 30.5 Rec Yards (-115) (Bet $115 to win $100)

*Odds available at DraftKings at time of publishing*

We're at DraftKings because I didn't even see a line for this guy anywhere else. In fairness, I didn't even check because once I saw the number I got into my car and drove to New Hampshire where betting is legal but still. But a quick sweep of the books after I got home netted nothing for Everett in terms of lines. Obviously, you don't want to do what I did and not even check other books, so after reading this look around. It's the smart thing to do.

Los Angeles Chargers vs Las Vegas Raiders Prediction

Here's the thing about Gerald Everett. He was going to be me for the last few years. When he was on the Los Angeles Rams, I just knew he was going to beast out every week. The guy is like 6'3" and 245 pounds but runs like a gazelle. Like a really strong one. The issue was, that the Rams kept putting him on the field at the same time as Tyler Higbee and they cannibalized each other. It was disgusting. Next, he went to Seattle and they didn't throw the ball. It was demoralizing.

Now Everett is back in Los Angeles but he's playing for the other team. Not the Rams. Here's the thing about his new team, the Los Angeles Chargers. They will throw to the tight end. They had Jared Cook last season and he saw 83 targets. The man was like 75 years old (no offense Jared, I'm old too) and they still threw the ball to him regularly. Imagine what a young, spry guy is going to do in this offense. It's going to be sick.

All we need is the right opponent for the master plan to work out and we have one in the Las Vegas Raiders. First off, they should score a few points so the Chargers may not be able to take their foot off the gas. On top of that, the Raiders were one of eight teams to give up at least 1,000 receiving yards to the tight end position last season. Old man Cook went for 70 and 80 yards against them in his two games against him. This is the worst line I've ever seen in my life.
