NFL Week 17 Free Pick: Take the Raiders. According to latest NFL trends, the road team has covered in the last 4 games in this series and the underdog has covered in 7 straight. Oakland is 5-2 against the spread in its last 7 against the Chargers. San Diego does own a 22-14 win over the Raiders already this season, but the Chargers have lost three straight at home and struggled to move the ball in all three of those contests. The Raiders aren’t a strong team by any means, but they have lost their last three by 13 or less. With Carson Palmer out and Terrelle Pryor starting, it gives the Raiders a dynamic look that could open things up in the running game for Oakland’s slew of backs. Look for this game to come down to the end, which means Oakland covers.
