Second place in the AFC West will be on the line in Week 4 NFL betting when the Las Vegas Raiders travel to SoFi to take on the hated rival Los Angeles Chargers in the first of two scheduled regular season confrontations. Having just been ripped by Josh Allen and Kenny Pickett the last two weeks, the defense is likely to have its hands full with Justin Herbert who is one of just five quarterbacks to have already reached the 900+ passing yards plateau through the first three weeks after ripping the Vikings for four spins to earn the Bolts their first win of the season. It’s anyone’s guess who will be under center for the Silver and Black with Jimmy Garoppolo in the concussion protocol after being treated like a rag doll last Sunday night. Rookie Aidan O’Connell could very well make his first NFL start, or it’ll be backup Brian Hoyer. Regardless, the betting market isn’t bullish on the Raiders prospects heading into this one.

Las Vegas Raiders Week 4 Matchup

On Sunday, October 1, 2023, the Las Vegas Raiders will take on the Los Angeles Chargers from SoFi Stadium in Inglewood, CA. Kickoff time is set for 4:05 p.m. ET with television coverage on CBS. The lookahead betting line for this AFC West brawl had the Raiders installed 4.5-point underdogs and the total lined 49.5. Vegas proved to be a good get for the online sportsbook last week with Jimmy G and Co. taking in 60 percent of the money. After letting their supporters down, NFL bettors have lined up to fade them in Week 4 with linemakers simply unable to muster any interest in taking the points. Because of it, the Raiders have been boosted to 6-point road dogs with upwards of 90+ percent of the bets and money in support of the line move. These teams have split their last 10 confrontations right down the middle with the home team winning and covering each of the last four. Though the O/U has closed at 50+ points in four of the last five SoFi matchups, the under cashed all but once with an average of 43.8 points scored. With injuries and unknown player availabilities playing a large role, the total has fallen 1.5-points from the opener with 67 percent of the action and 69 percent of the handle in full support of the move south. Vegas has failed to exceed the 20-point plateau in its last two road treks to LA, and will be hard-pressed to do so once again should Garoppolo not be nestled in under center.

Las Vegas Raiders Week 3 Recap

Seriously; what the heck was Josh McDaniels thinking at the tail end of Sunday night’s game against the Pittsburgh Steelers? The guy elects to kick a field goal with just over three minutes remaining trailing by eight. Daniel Carlson boots it through the uprights. A leverage penalty is called giving the home team a new set of downs. Vegas fails to punch it into the end zone yet the head coach elects to kick another field goal with 2:22 remaining to cut the deficit to five. What?! It baffles me that coaches are paid millions of dollars to overlook these billion dollar entities only to make –EV calls like that with a game on the line. Not to mention, the Raiders had three timeouts in the bag as well as the two minute warning – how did he not go for it on one of the fourth downs?! In the end, Vegas did get the ball back but with only 12 seconds remaining and needed the football gods to grant them the miracle comeback win. It didn’t happen. Save for Davante Adams erupting for 172 receiving yards and 2 TD, not much went right for the Raiders in their home opener. Garoppolo suffered a concussion after getting constantly harassed and eventually dropped four times, while the offense only converted 31 percent of its 13 third down tries and turned it over three times. Josh Jacobs’ struggles continued with last year’s rushing yards leader turning his 17 carries into 62 scoreless yards and 3.6 yards per carry. On top of all that, the defense allowed Kenny Pickett to play to a 108.5 QB rating by hitting a number of deep shots against a Raiders secondary that’s been burned for five passing touchdowns the last two weeks.

Once upon a time, the Las Vegas Raiders were the winningest franchise in professional sports. From 1967 through 2002, the Raiders had the highest winning percentage of all teams in the major professional sports. During that time, the Raiders won three Super Bowl championships and threatened for several more.

Just as incredible are the humble beginnings of the franchise. The Raiders were born in 1960 as charter members of the American Football League. They have been in the same AFC West division with the Kansas City Chiefs, Los Angeles Chargers, and Denver Broncos from the start of operations.

In the Raiders' early years were heavy losses on the field and the balance sheet. The team nearly folded on multiple occasions. But in 1963, Al Davis was the dynamic leader that changed everything.

Davis took over as head coach and general manager in 1963 and improved the Raiders from 1-13 to 10-4 as a rookie. Davis changed the team colors to silver and black and made the team in his image.

However, the final years of the Davis era were sad and pathetic. The Raiders turned into consistently big losers and played before a dilapidated and half-empty Oakland Coliseum. When Al Davis died, the team passed to his son Mark. Knowing he needed a jolt of increased revenue to survive, Mark Davis moved the team to Las Vegas and sparking new Allegiant Stadium in 2020.
