Against the Spread (Devlin Duckett)
The Raiders are likely licking their chops ahead of this matchup with the Jets in MetLife Stadium. Las Vegas left a chunk of its dignity in Atlanta, following last week’s 43-6 lambasting by the Falcons. The Raiders have a chance to get some of their swagger back here, but must realize that a loss to the winless Jets would be fatal. Both NY and Las Vegas possess bottom-tier defenses, but the Raiders own the NFL’s 11th-ranked offense. Expect RB Josh Jacobs to get back on track this week, bashing holes and gobbling up ground yardage on the Jets. QB Derek Carr has a golden opportunity for redemption himself, going against the league’s third-worst passing D. “Gang Green” dies a slow, painful death on the football field every week, but we can capitalize on NY’s misery. The most recent Jets tragedy was a 20-3 mashing by the Dolphins last week. NY is tumbling towards the top pick in the 2021 draft, and I don’t see a legit winnable game on the remaining schedule. Las Vegas wins and covers. Raiders 38, Jets 24
Over/Under (Zack Robinson)
Derek Carr and the Las Vegas Raiders scored just six points against the Atlanta Falcons (Week 12), but they are much better than that. Carr has developed good chemistry with TE Darren Waller and WR’s Nelson Agholor, Henry Ruggs III and Hunter Renfrow. The Raiders also have Josh Jacobs as their No. 1 RB and he can be very explosive.
Las Vegas average 26.5 points per game and the total has gone over in 10 of their last 12 games against an opponent from the AFC East.
The New York Jets are a lost cause, but they still have to play. Sam Darnold is back under center, but the Jets scored just three points against the Dolphins (Week 12). Their running game is very poor and their secondary is very weak.
This should be a very accessible game for the Raiders on both sides of the field but go under.
