Chargers vs. RaidersThe Monday Night Football schedule graces us with a pair of great games this weekend. We are going to be taking a look at some of the NFL prop picks for the two clashes on the gridiron, so join us here at Bankroll Sports for our San Diego Chargers @ Oakland Raiders predictions and our Cincinnati Bengals @ Baltimore Ravens picks.

Will Ray Rice Score a Touchdown?: Rice is a man on a mission right now, and this year, he doesn’t have RB Ricky Williams in his way to pillage touchdowns. Sure, rookie RB Bernard Pierce can take some carries, but we know that Rice can get the job done both as a rusher and as a receiver. If this hurry up offense really is going to be a crucial part of the system for the Ravens this year, Rice is probably going to see the ball a heck of a lot more and might be able to break some big time runs on some tired defenses. Rice is one of the best backs in the league, and the truth of the matter is that he is going to score in at least two out of three games over the course of this year. Ray Rice To Score a Touchdown (-160)

Will Joe Flacco Throw an Interception?: This is an NFL line that just doesn’t make all that much sense to us. Flacco would need to be picked off in 10 of his 16 games to make this NFL prop profitable to us, and we think that that will be the case. The Bengals do have a heck of a secondary, and they should be able to get some pressure into Flacco’s face. If this turns out to be the case, we should see at least one mistake made by the former member of the Delaware Blue Hens. Flacco To Throw an INT (-140)

Carson Palmer Longest Pass Completion Over 35.5 Yards: Palmer has to be ready to grip it and rip in on Sunday night, and he is going to be the man of the hour in this game against the Chargers. He’ll take his shots down the field to the likes of WR Denarius Moore, and we expect to see some big time plays out of this offense. The San Diego defense is consistently overrated, and it is likely to be prone to the big time play this year. We only need one, but we think that we’ll get a few bombs out of Palmer and the passing game in this one. Palmer Longest Completion Over 35.5 Yards (-115)

Total Punts Between Chargers and Raiders Over/Under 10.5: Over the course of the first week of the season, what we have seen is a heck of a lot of points and not a heck of a lot of punts. The Chargers and the Raiders both have offenses that can put some points on the board, just as we saw at the end of last year when these teams got into the 60s combined in Week 17. Oakland didn’t have RB Darren McFadden in that one either. The question is whether there will be more than 15 drives or so in this game, and we think that that is a viable question to ask as well. But asking these two teams to combine to punt the ball 11 times is just too much for what could be an offensive shootout of a game. Total Punts Under 10.5 (-130)
