Why Bet On Las Vegas?

The Raiders (3-2 ATS) look like a solid pick to cover the chalk as a near touchdown road dog for a handful of reasons. First, Las Vegas has won two straight by upsetting Indianapolis on the road in Week 4 and they followed that up with an even more impressive 24-21 home win over the Chicago Bears a week later. There’s also the fact that Las Vegas is ranked a solid eighth in rushing and has apparently found a star in rookie running back Josh Jacobs. Last but not least, the Raiders have also been rock-solid in ranking 10th against the run, so they could potentially bottle up Green Bay’s blossoming Aaron Jones in this one.

Why Bet On Green Bay?

The Packers (4-2 ATS) looks like a good bet to cover the spread for several reasons. First, Green Bay is playing at home and Aaron Rodgers is healthy and that means there’s a high probability the Pack take care of business at Lambeau Field. Then, there’s the fact that the Packers also have some momentum after spanking Dallas two weeks ago and following that up with a thrilling 23-22 comeback win over Detroit on Monday night. Combine that with the fact that the Packers now have a good defense that ranks ninth in points allowed 919.2 ppg) and it’s easy to see why the Packers could cover the spread in this matchup.

Raiders vs Packers Expert Analysis and Prediction

While the Raiders were definitely impressive in their upset win over Chicago the last time out, the Packers have a far more explosive offense than the Bears and a future Hall of Fame quarterback that just doesn’t lose very often at home. Having said that, I’m also not expecting the now, rejuvenated Raiders to simply roll over in this contest, especially after seeing how they played some fantastic football in their last two games.

The Raiders have won two straight and are well-rested after getting a bye this past weekend following their stunning upset at home of Chicago in Week 5. The Packers host the Lions on Monday night after taking out Dallas by 10 points at home last weekend. While Las Vegas looks god right now, remember, Aaron Rodgers is not Mitch Trubisky or Jacoby Brissette for that matter.

While I’m not prepared to pick Las Vegas to get the outright win in Week 7, I am going to urge you to go along with the approximately 52 percent of public bettors that like the Raiders to cover the spread as 6.5-point road dogs. I know Las Vegas is a winless 0-4 ATS in the last four meetings, but the Raiders are also 5-2 ATS in their last 7 games following a bye week and the Packers are 0-4 ATS in their last 4 home games against a team with a winning road record. Green bay wins, but Las Vegas covers in a tight affair.

Pick: Green Bay 27 Las Vegas 24
