ANALYSIS

Los Angeles Chargers vs. Las Vegas Raiders Prediction and Pick: Cash In With This Expert's Same Game Parlay

I was thinking about gambling today and it hit me that we need a same game parlay for a 4:25 pm ET game on Sunday. Not just any same-game parlay, but one that's plus money and has no chance of losing. Obviously, those aren't the easiest to come by but that's what we need so that's what we have to get. Lucky for us, the Las Vegas Raiders will be in Los Angeles visiting the Chargers at 4:25 pm ET on Sunday. At first glance, it seemed like the perfect spot for a same-game parlay. We've got good offenses (probably), aggressive head coaches, and good weather. Knowing all that, I still had no idea when I opened up the DraftKings app that this parlay could be this good. It's crazy easy. Like the easiest parlay, anyone has ever made. I honestly have no idea how sports books stay in business offering stuff like this.

Let's break down this NFL pick for Week 1.

Los Angeles Chargers vs. Las Vegas Raiders Prediction

Las Vegas Raiders vs Los Angeles Chargers SGP (+120) - DraftKings (Bet $100 to win $120)

  • Justin Herbert 230+ Passing Yards
  • Hunter Renfroe 4+ Receptions
  • Chargers +3.5

We're at DraftKings for this one because FanDuel doesn't have the alt numbers up yet. We need alt numbers for these things because moving the lines is what it's all about. For instance, we can move Justin Herbert's passing yards number all the way down to 230+. I feel like he's gone over that number in every game he's played since Pop Warner. The last time he faced the Raiders he went for 383 passing yards. That's way more than 230. It makes sense to start there.

If we think Justin Herbert could smash a little, then that means the Raiders will need to fight back. Most likely through the air. The obvious move is Hunter Renfrow's receptions. The guy will catch at least four balls on Sunday. Everyone knows that. There were only three games last season when he didn't catch at least four balls. He caught three in all of those games. Plus, with Josh McDaniels in town, a receiver that looks like Hunter Renfrow will get some work (Wes Welker, Julian Edelman). This one should cash by halftime.

Finally, we need another leg to throw in so why not just take the Chargers to cover +3.5? Obviously, we think they will win this one outright but putting a field goal in our pockets isn't the worst idea. It's actually pretty good. Given the way last season ended, you know they are going to come ready. Think Buffalo Bills last night. There's no chance they lose this game.
