The Las Vegas Raiders host the Los Angeles Chargers on Thursday Night Football in week 15 of the NFL season this week, with kickoff set for 8:15 p.m. EST. Let’s take a look at some of my favorite player prop bets for the TNF matchup.

All odds come courtesy of DraftKings Sportsbook.

Chargers vs. Raiders

Aidan O’Connell, Under 0.5 passing touchdowns (+160)

Aidan O’Connell may not start this game. If he does start he may not finish. The Raiders are rumored to be considering a change at quarterback. Give me the under on Aidan O’Connell and 0.5 passing touchdowns.

Easton Stick, Over 189.5 passing yards (-115)

After Justin Herbert was knocked out of the game last week. Easton Stick came in and the Chargers were not shy about letting him air it out. It’s difficult to know what to expect from the career backup, but if last week is any indication, Stick should be given enough chances to exceed a modest total of 189.5 passing yards.

Joshua Palmer Over 35.5 receiving yards (-110)

With Keenan Allen and Mike Williams both out with injuries, Joshua Palmer becomes the Chargers’ WR1 this week in his return off the injured reserve list. Palmer was blossoming into a big time threat prior to his injury this season. Give me the over on Joshua Palmer and 35.5 receiving yards.

Austin Ekeler Over 30.5 receiving yards (-125)

Austin Ekeler is a big time receiver as a running back even when the Chargers’ star receivers are healthy. With the top two receivers out with injuries tonight, Ekeler should see plenty of targets to help give backup quarterback Easton Stick some easy completions. Give me the over on Austin Ekeler and 30.5 receiving yards.
