Oakland Raiders vs. San Diego Chargers LineOakland Raiders and the San Diego Chargers face each other on Thursday Night Football at Qualcomm Stadium.

What was looked at as an aberration now appears to be a dilemma as the Chargers have turned the ball over more often than a timid point guard: nine TO’s in three games have resulted in a three-game losing skid.

The bad news is three-game losing slides have happened to San Diego three times under Norv Turner’s lead.

The good news is the Bolts are 3-0 SU and ATS in games off three losses behind the Norvous one. They are also 12-1 SU and 11-2 ATS under Turner in games after hosting a division opponent, including 5-0 SU and ATS when right back at home against another division foe.

Meanwhile, the Raiders enter with turnover problems of their own (six in the last two games – both decisive SU and ATS losses as favorites) while owning a downright rotten 1-5 SU and 0-6 ATS log in games on Thursdays.

The bottom line is Diego’s 7th-ranked defense is 75 YPG better than Oakland’s 28th-ranked stop unit – and that should prove to be the difference in this division duel.

We’re charged up for a San Diego turnaround.

Oddsmakers currently have the Chargers listed as 7-point favorites versus the Raiders, while the game's total is sitting at 49.
