    Coin flip sounds about right to me, so this isn't far off.

    Home team usually gets 2-3 point automatically. So if the game is in Oak, it means that it is not a coin flip, but rather a 3.5-4.5 point favorite when home field advantage is gone

    It means nothing in this case.

    Because the Raiders suck.

    Is this a trick question?

    Knowing the Chargers track record early in the season and current injuries, I can't say I am extremely confident in our chances

    I did for the season, but I also got 30-1 odds, so it made the gamble an easy one

    I never bet on games where my favorite teams are playing. Seems to be bad mojo.

    Neither do I, but 30-1 odd to win the SB was too good to pass up

    It would be funny if they didn't have 3 titles and we had more than 0.
