Below are the explanations for each pick.Pick against the spread: One of these hot teams will use this game to continue a march back to AFC wild-card contention. The Raiders are home underdogs, but they have the best matchup in their favor with Jacobs against the Chargers’ reeling run defense. LA will answer with big plays in the passing game from Rivers in its new, more dynamic offense, but Oakland will finish a few more drives to take its latest near-last home game. Pick: Raiders win 27-20 and cover the spread.Straight-up prediction: Before it shifted in LA’s favor, this game opened as a pick ’em with good reason. Neither the 4-4 Raiders nor the 4-5 Chargers are expected to keep up with the Chiefs in the AFC West, but both are still contenders for a wild card. Los Angeles entered the season with higher expectations, and coming off consecutive refreshing wins, Anthony Lynn’s bunch is starting to look like the team many expected it to be. Quietly, the Chargers have a top-10 scoring defense. That will be the key against a good-but-not-unstoppable Raiders offense.
