NFL Betting Analysis For Las Vegas Raiders: Picks For Each Week

NFL Betting Analysis For Las Vegas Raiders: Picks For Each Week

The Las Vegas Raiders made it to the playoffs last year for the first time since 2017. Getting to the postseason didn’t convince the team to take the “interim” tag off the title of Rich Bisaccia, as Josh McDaniels comes west from New England to take the head coaching job. Wide receiver Davante Adams comes from Green Bay to give quarterback Derek Carr another target. The AFC West could be the most competitive division in the NFL, so how will the Raiders fare? We have a NFL betting pick for each week of their schedule.

NFL News: Las Vegas Raiders Season Betting Preview

 

Sunday, September 11: at L.A. Chargers (4:25 pm ET, CBS)

Expect some raucous fans and a Chargers team ready to avenge that overtime loss from Week 18 last year. 0-1.

Sunday, September 18: vs Arizona Cardinals (4:25 pm ET, CBS)

I think the Raiders have the better offense coming into the season, especially since the Cards won’t have DeAndre Hopkins. 1-1.

Sunday, September 25: at Tennessee Titans (1:00 pm ET, CBS)

Can the Raiders stop Derrick Henry? That will be the key question, because a pounding running game could take over the rhythm of the whole day. 1-2.

Sunday, October 2: vs Denver Broncos (4:25 pm ET, CBS)

Denver’s defense should be able to clamp down on the Raiders, while Russell Wilson enjoys his new roster. 2-2.

Monday, October 10: at Kansas City Chiefs (8:15 pm ET, ESPN)

The Raiders won in Kansas City last year, and I don’t think the Chiefs are as good this time around. 3-2.

Sunday, October 16: BYE

Sunday, October 23: vs Houston Texans (4:05 pm ET, FOX)

I’m not sure Houston will win very many games at all this season. 4-2.

Sunday, October 30: at New Orleans Saints (1:00 pm ET, CBS)

I see the Saints making a run for the NFC South title and beyond with a healthy Jameis Winston and Michael Thomas. 4-3.

Sunday, November 6: at Jacksonville Jaguars (1:00 pm ET, CBS)

An early slot in the Eastern time zone will be a struggle, but the Raiders will prevail. 5-3.

Sunday, November 13: vs Indianapolis Colts (4:05 pm ET, CBS)

The Raiders will get after Matt Ryan with their pass rush and use those ensuing turnovers to win. 6-3.

Sunday, November 20: at Denver Broncos (4:05 pm ET, CBS)

Las Vegas gets revenge for that earlier loss, as the league starts to figure out Russell Wilson’s new ceiling. 7-3.

Sunday, November 27: at Seattle Seahawks (4:05 pm ET, CBS)

In a battle between Drew Lock and Derek Carr, I’ll go with Carr. 8-3.

Sunday, December 4: vs L.A. Chargers (4:25 pm ET, CBS)

Derek Carr goes off in a high-octane offensive night and the Raiders get the split. 9-3.

Thursday, December 8: at L.A. Rams (8:15 pm ET, Prime Video)

That Ram defense brings this five-game winning streak to a crashing halt. 9-4.

Sunday, December 18: vs New England Patriots (8:20 pm ET, NBC)

Josh McDaniels takes on Bill Belichick, but I think Mac Jones can deliver just enough to get the prime-time road win. 9-5.

Saturday, December 24: at Pittsburgh Steelers (8:15 pm ET, NFL Network)

Can Derek Carr outduel Kenny Pickett, or Mitch Trubisky, or Mason Rudolph? Yes. 10-5.

Sunday, January 1: vs San Francisco 49ers (4:05 pm ET, FOX)

I don’t think Trey Lance is ready to win a late-season game against a playoff contender. 11-5.

Sunday, January 8: vs Kansas City Chiefs (Time/TV TBA)

Can Carr seal the deal and win the AFC West? I’m not sure he has a Week 18 win in him for a division crown. 11-6.
