What to Expect

Bookmakers were nearly dealt a multimillion-dollar loss on Sunday night with the potential for a tie when Las Vegas Raiders kicker Daniel Carlson kicked a 47-yard field goal on the final play of overtime in a 35-32 win over the Los Angeles Chargers.

Coming into this game a tie would have resulted in both teams heading to the Playoffs based on the crazy math resulting from the Colts earlier loss to Jacksonville.  Some theorized the two teams could be in cahoots to make this happen, and it was beginning to look that way at the end and in OT.

According to Dave Purdam of ESPN, the Borgata in Atlantic City had odds on the Chargers-Raiders game ending in a tie bet down from 50-1 to 11-1.

The Raiders are on a roll, winning their last four games.  The Raiders have not been profitable for sports bettors with their 8-9 record Against The Spread.  There is a 2-point overlay here and we will be on the Raiders at +6.
