MNF: Live Odds and Best Bets for Raiders at Lions
The 3-4 Raiders are coming off their worst loss of the season last week when they took a 30-12 loss on the road in Chicago. Detroit is also coming off their worst loss of the season as they dropped their 2nd game at Baltimore 38-6 to bring their record to 5-2.
Which team will bounce back on Monday Night Football? Check out the live odds and our best bets for Raiders at Lions below!
Las Vegas Raiders @ Detroit Lions
Vegas had hopes of stringing a winning streak together as they had won games over Green Bay and New England prior, but it was not meant to be. Jimmy G was out so Brian Hoyer got the nod to start and was 17-32 for 129 yards and 2 picks with no touchdowns.
Josh Jacobs was held to only 35 yards on 11 carries. They turned the ball over 3 times and only converted on 3rd down two times all game. Nothing seemingly went right for the Raiders. Jimmy G is questionable for this Monday Night game and the offense could use a spark since they sit in 30th in the league, averaging just 16ppg.
Detroit is also coming off their worst loss of the season as they dropped their 2nd game at Baltimore 38-6 to bring their record to 5-2. The loss snapped a 4-game winning streak and showed some potential gaping holes that need to be addressed going forward for this Lions squad.
Jared Goff was sacked 5 times and threw 1 interception in the loss. His counterpart, Lamar Jackson, looked like his old MVP self. He threw for over 350 yards and 3 touchdowns while running for another 36 yards and another touchdown.
His tight end, Mark Andrews, caught 2 of his TD passes. The Lions had an extremely hard time containing Lamar and getting anything consistent going on offense.
Best Bet: Lions -7.5 (FanDuel)
We like this bounce-back spot for the Lions who are going to be facing a much less mobile QB in their Jimmy G or Brian Hoyer.
The pass rush of the Lions is one of the best in the league but when they have an opposing QB like Jackson, who can make you pay for rushing the edges, that gets neutralized.
If the Lions can keep Maxx Crosby in check, Goff and the offense should have no trouble moving the ball and covering this large number. Let’s lay the points with Detroit!
- LV is 2-4 ATS in their last 6 games.
- LV is 1-5 ATS in their last 6 games on the road.
- Det is 14-3 ATS in their last 17 games.
- Det is 7-1 ATS in their last 8 games at home.
We love adding 2 or 3 player prop bets to our portfolio during primetime games. It keeps things more interesting and is a good way to gradually add to your betting bankroll throughout the season. Here are our 3 favorites:
Sam LaPorta TD +145 (DraftKings)
- LaPorta is tied for 2nd on the team in touchdowns scored.
- The Raiders like to pressure the edge which can lead to TEs having openings in the flats
Jahmyr Gibbs OVER 64.5 Rushing Yards -120 (BetMGM)
- Gibbs is coming off a 68-yard game last week.
- The Raiders have allowed the 5th most rushing yards to opponents this season.
SGP: Jared Goff 225+ Passing Yards & No Interceptions -115
- Goff has exceeded this total in all but 1 game this season.
- Goff has only thrown 4 total interceptions this season and the Raiders have only collected 5 of their own.
