FanDuel Paying New Users For Justin Herbert TDs On TNF

The Los Angeles Chargers and Las Vegas Raiders are set for an AFC West matchup Thursday night, and the Raiders will need a win to keep their fading playoff hopes alive. To commemorate the game, our partners at FanDuel are offering a promotion for new users where you can make a $5 wager on Chargers quarterback Justin Herbert throwing at least one touchdown pass — and if you pick right, you win $75:

The Chargers (4-9) are basically just playing out the string, but Herbert has put together a strong rookie season, having tossed at least one TD in every game but one — a 45-0 loss to the New England Patriots in Week 13. He has thrown for more than one touchdown in eight of the 13 games.

Meanwhile, the Raiders (7-6) started by winning six of their first nine games, but have lost three of four since. And even the win came off a botched defensive play, attempted by the winless New York Jets on the game’s final possession. Nonetheless, they remain 3.5-point favorites for Thursday’s game. Kickoff is scheduled for 8:20 p.m. EST.
