Week 15 of the 2023 NFL season is here! Our Atlanta Falcons squandered a tremendous opportunity to take full control of the NFC South with a loss to the Tampa Bay Buccaneers in Week 14, but because of the state of this division, are still very much alive in the playoff hunt.

What will Week 15 have for us? Things kick off with tonight’s Thursday Night Football matchup between the Los Angeles Chargers and Las Vegas Raiders.

Let’s get right to tonight’s pick, which I’ll be making on a straight moneyline (aka picking the winner) basis. I’ll still provide the information on the spread and over/under, for those interested. At the bottom, I’ll show the rest of the staff’s picks for the game.

All odds are taken from DraftKings Sportsbook and are subject to change. See the current odds here.

Thursday Night Football: Los Angeles Chargers (5-8) at Las Vegas Raiders (5-8)

The pick: Raiders (-162)

Spread: Raiders -3 | Over/Under: 34.5 | Moneyline: Raiders -162, Chargers +136

Oh, what could’ve been for the Chargers. The AFC Falcons are once again having a soul-crushingly disappointing season, and have just lost quarterback Justin Herbert for the remainder of the season. Even with Herbert, Los Angeles was one of the NFL’s biggest underachievers once again. The Raiders haven’t exactly been much better, having already fired their head coach midseason. This isn’t likely to be a particularly exciting game, and the Raiders have the advantage at home.
