Thanks, Cooper Kupp. Without the Rams receiver finding paydirt, we’d be singing a sorry tune this week. Instead, we salvaged some precious earnings, allowing us to pick free and easy in Week 15.

And it should be a good one, with the Las Vegas Raiders desperately needing a win to stay in the playoff picture, while the Los Angeles Chargers want nothing more than to drive a stake in the hopes of their AFC West rival.

They’re expecting it to be clear a 60 degrees from Allegiant Stadium in the desert. Check the betting lines here, but let’s add more intrigue with some player prop selections.

Hope In Herbert

The Chargers love to throw the football. Through 13 games, the Bolts have attempted the most passes (531) and are tied for the most completions with the Steelers (348). And the Raiders present a prime opportunity to cash in with rookie slinger Justin Herbert at the helm.

Vegas is 25th in passing yards surrendered per game, and they rank 31st in the league with just 15 sacks in 13 games. That should provide clean pockets and plenty of time for Herbert to pick apart the Raider defense.

He’s gone over the completion line set for him in this one in four straight games and in seven of his last eight starts. After back-to-back tough starts against the Bills and Patriots, he threw for two scores last time out against Atlanta — that’s eight of his last 10 outings with at least two TD tosses.

One of those games was against these very Raiders in Week 9: 28-for-42 for 326 yards and two TD passes. The beat should go on in a shootout.

The pick: Herbert OVER 25.5 completions (1 unit for 0.95 units)

Big Targets Get Big Targets

It’s hard to imagine Darren Waller flying under the radar, but such is the life when you play in the same division as Travis Kelce on the supersonic Chiefs. Waller has 84 receptions on the campaign, and is grooving in one of the best four-game volume stretches in his career. Over that span, he’s been targeted 41 times for 34 catches, 386 yards and three touchdowns.

In their Week 9 matchup, Waller was targeted 10 times, coming down with five receptions. Expect him to again figure prominently against LA. He’s also gone over 72 yards receiving in seven of his last nine home games.

On the other side, Keenan Allen has been a target monster for the Chargers all season, and with his first catch Thursday, will have broken the 100-reception plateau for the third time in four seasons.

Allen has been targeted at least 10 times in seven of his last eight contests, and has been targeted less than 10 times in a game three times all season. Allen had nine grabs on 11 targets for 103 yards and a major against the Raiders in Week 9. With these two, the best goes on.

The picks:

Waller OVER 62.5 receiving yards (0.5 units to win 0.4 units)

Allen OVER 7.5 receptions (0.5 units to win 0.445 units)

Who Finds Paydirt?

The safe pick is Raiders’ running back Josh Jacobs, who seems to thrive in primetime. He has punched it into the endzone in four of Vegas’ last five night games. Ditto Allen, who is quite the road show, scoring a touchdown in each of his last four away games.

But there’s some value bets worth considering here: Nelson Agholor has connected on touchdowns in four of his last five home games, while Chargers’ tight end Hunter Henry has his own little TNF streak running. He has TD’s on three straight Thursday appearances.

The picks:

Henry to score anytime TD (0.5 units to win 1 unit)

Agholor to score anytime TD (1 unit for 1.6 units)
