Raiders Vs. Chargers Betting Lines

The Oakland Raiders will begin the regular season on Monday Night Football as they host the San Diego Chargers. The two AFC West foes are expected to compete for a division crown in 2012, especially if they are able to stay healthy and get strong quarterback play.

Fortunately for the home-town Raiders, San Diego will be without talented running back Ryan Mathews due to the broken clavicle he suffered nearly a month ago. The Chargers are also adjusting to life without Vincent Jackson at wide receiver.

Everything considered, the Raiders have opener as one-point favorites over the Chargers, according to Odds Shark. Some lines have the two teams as even, while another had Oakland at -1.5 on Tuesday evening. The over-under for the game has been set at 47 1/2 points.

Kickoff from Oakland is scheduled for 7:15 p.m. PT on Monday, Sept. 10.
