After the better part of three years and $1.9 Billion dollars later, Mark Davis and the Oakland Raiders are finally having their dreams come into fruition when they kick off tonight against the New Orleans Saints in their first home game as the Las Vegas Raiders, playing in the death star.
The Raiders are entering their first home game as underdogs but are led by Derek Carr [O/U 1.5 Passing Touchdowns] tonight, Carr was rock solid in a Week 1 victory over the Carolina Panthers. You can expect rookie Henry Ruggs III [O/U 54.5 Receiving Yards], the first receiver taken in this past year’s draft to have a big game tonight, Ruggs hit the over on yards in Week 1 one and since this is his second career game, his player prop lines are still very much adjusting. Closing out the Vegas Raiders offense is running back Josh Jacobs [O/U 0.5 Rushing Touchdowns] who had the game of his career last week scoring 3 touchdowns. Jacobs is also seeking to become the first running back to rush for over 100 yards vs. the Saints defense in a 41 game span, his player prop line for tonight is O/U 66.5 Rushing Yards.
The Raiders opposition tonight are potential Super Bowl contenders in the New Orleans Saints. The Saints have won three out of the past four matchups against the Raiders and both teams are coming off of Week 1 victories. Some key player prop bet lines are Drew Brees [O/U 264.5 Yards], the quarterback who has the most career passing yards in NFL history, managed to have hit the under last week versus Tampa Bay where he finished the game 18 – 30 with 160 total yards. Alvin Kamara [O/U 0.5 Rushing Touchdowns] after a fairly slow week where Kamara received 12 carries but still managed to rush for a touchdown, we can only expect Kamara to have an even bigger game tonight, especially with reigning NFL Offensive Player of the year Michael Thomas injured. Thomas out also helps veteran Emmanuel Sanders [O/U 60.5 Receiving Yards], the 60.5 player prop bet line may seem like a trap after Sanders only recorded 15 yards in Week 1, but with Drew Brees under center, anything can happen offensively….
