Let’s check the latest NFL odds, stats, injury reports, and NFL lines for Raiders vs Saints. We’ve plenty of Vegas NFL odds for you to consider.
Las Vegas Raiders
The Raiders have yet to play to their potential, but things seem to be trending better in Sin City. Vegas has won two of its last three, with the offense averaging 33 points per game in that span. Coincidentally, that number matches the Saints in league-leading points averaged over the last three weeks. Star wide receiver Davante Adams was held out of practice Wednesday due to an illness going around the locker room. Safety Jonathan Abram, along with defensive ends Tashawn Bower and Clelin Ferrell were also out.
Both the Raiders and Saints have atrocious defenses, Vegas surrendering 25 points/366.7 yards per game. Few worse units in the NFL.
New Orleans Saints
Andy Dalton remains the starting quarterback in New Orleans. Coach Dennis Allen likes what he’s seen out of the veteran the last four weeks since Jameis Winston’s injury. Winston did return as a full participant in practice, but won’t be starting.
Dalton has completed 63.4% of his passes (seven touchdowns, 946 yards) in relief of Winston. There are those four interceptions and four sacks, too, but the Saints see something in him. However, we see a guy who threw more touchdowns to Arizona Cardinal ‘receivers’ last week than did Kyler Murray. Try two pick-sixes within a minute of each other. He doesn’t exactly appear to be the answer in New Orleans, or perhaps Winston is not as healthy as the Saints want us to believe.
The Saints‘ offense isn’t their problem, though, rather a defense ranks 31st in points allowed per game (28.6), 20th in yards per pass (6.9). If the Saints’ defense fails to foil Vegas, we aren’t convinced Dalton doesn’t sabotage their effort with another poor showing.

Raiders vs Saints Prediction
This is a game between teams with streaky offenses and terrible defenses, and the total is a very beatable 50 points. With both teams scoring in excess of 25 points on offense and surrendering as many on defense, this may be the highest-scoring game of the week.
