Derek Carr Over 1.5 Touchdowns Passing (-148, FanDuel)

Derek Carr has been on a mission over the past two months and should continue to be the catalyst of the Raiders offense on Sunday night.

Los Angeles has allowed 1.56 passing touchdowns per game while ranking 25th in opponent red zone scoring, allowing touchdowns at a 64.52% rate in red zone territory. Carr has turned turmoil into triumph through a turbulent Raiders season, though hasn’t had a multi-touchdown passing game since Week 10 against Kansas City. Yet Carr slung for two scores against these Chargers earlier this season, and an achievable over on his passing touchdown prop in Week 18 is further incentivized.
