Week 15 of the NFL season kicks off with a divisional clash that has the potential to lack entertainment value. The Chargers, who just lost Justin Herbert for the season, will face a Raiders squad that scored zero points last weekend.

Fortunately, football fans can still find ways to enjoy this game through betting. Check out our three favorite prop bets to win some cash.

Best Bet No. 1: Austin Ekeler OVER 29.5 Receiving Yards (-120)

Although it feels gross to bet the “over” on any prop bet relating to Los Angeles’ success on offense, Ekeler figures to play a key role this week. The Chargers are rolling out Easton Stick as their starting quarterback and he will likely need to rely on shorter passing attempts if he has any shot at moving his team down the field. Ekeler is a great dump-off option out of the backfield, and he’s eclipsed 29.5 receiving yards in 60 percent of his games this season. It also helps that the Raiders have been iffy against defending running backs in the passing game. Las Vegas surrenders 32.8 receiving yards to running backs per game this season.

Best Bet No. 2: Aidan O’Connell OVER 203.5 Passing Yards (-115)

Only two of O’Connell’s starts this season have resulted in fewer than 203.5 passing yards: last week’s weird game against the Vikings, and his matchup against the Jets, who arguably have the best secondary in all of football. A more favorable matchup against the Chargers gives him a very good chance to eclipse this mark, especially if Josh Jacobs (quadricep) is less than 100 percent and can’t carry his normal workload in the running game. With Davante Adams and Jakobi Meyers (among others) at his disposal, this feels like a mark that O’Connell should hit easily.

Best Bet No. 3: Cameron Dicker UNDER 6.5 Kicking Points (-115)

The Chargers are not expected to look good on offense this week, so it’s a bit surprising that Dicker’s line is set as high as 6.5 points. This would essentially require him to kick two field goals and one extra point. Not only does this mean Stick has to get the Chargers in scoring position at least three times, but it could also be influenced by the Chargers’ desire to go for it on fourth down. As underdogs, they’re expected to fall behind in this game, which means Los Angeles could keep its offense on the field (and Dicker on the sideline) for some fourth-down situations inside the 40-yard line.
