New England took down the Arizona Cardinals on Monday night football 27-13 to get back in the AFC playoff picture, while the Raiders saw their three-game winning streak snapped by a come-from-behind victory by the Los Angeles Rams 17-16.

Which AFC team will come out with the win in this one? Let’s take a closer look at the best Patriots vs Raiders NFL Betting picks.

NFL Week 15 Betting Preview and Pick for New England Patriots at Las Vegas

Patriots Back in the AFC Playoff Picture 

The Week 14 game between the Arizona Cardinals and the New England Patriots saw a great performance by the Patriots. They managed to win 27-13, improving their record to 7-6 and moving up to third place in the AFC East in addition to moving back into the playoff picture as the seventh seed.

The Patriots‘ postseason dreams are still alive, and their offenses finally got back on track after much scrutiny on offensive coordinator Matt Patricia’s play calling. The Patriots’ offense has been ugly this year, averaging only 319.6 yards and 21.2 points.

Mac Jones has really struggled, tossing just seven touchdowns with eight interceptions. To make matters worse, star running back Rhamondre Stevenson exited Week 14 early due to an injury.

Bill Belichick’s defensive unit always comes to play as they are one of the most fearsome units in the league. Currently, New England ranks sixth in total defense, including holding opponents to an impressive 18.4 points per game.

Raiders lose Heartbreaker to Los Angeles

After playing in several one-score contests and fighting to get three straight victories, the Las Vegas Raiders finally looked like the team NFL fans thought they were going to see.

Unfortunately, the Raiders lost another heartbreaker and a game they should have won to the Los Angeles Rams 17-16. The Raiders now have a massive hill to climb in order to reach the AFC playoffs.

The Las Vegas Raiders’ defense let the team down once again as they blew a 13-point lead with five minutes left in the game and were defeated by a touchdown pass with just one second left on the clock. No matter how you slice it, Las Vegas’ defense has been atrocious this year, surrendering 24.1 points per game with just ten takeaways on the year (31st). 

One thing the Raiders have done pretty well this year is moving the football. Josh McDaniels brought his offensive tricks to Las Vegas as the Raiders rank eighth in total offense averaging 361.9 yards and 23.7 points per game. 

Betting Odds and Lines 

According to Mybookie, the Las Vegas Raiders are currently -1 point spread (-110) favorites for this matchup. In terms of the moneyline, the Raiders are -120 to get the win at home, while the New England Patriots are +100 road underdogs to pick up the win. When it comes to the total, the Over/Under has been set at 44.5 points (-110).

Betting Pick

The Raiders have vastly improved over the course of the season as they come into this matchup having won three of their last four contests against the spread. Despite this, we don’t trust them one bit. Las Vegas continued to let bettors down as they blew their fourth double-digit halftime lead.

New England, on the other hand, is in a much better position to win this game despite playing on the road. Bill Belichick’s group sits in third place in the AFC East, and they are currently in the playoff picture.

The Patriots’ defense has faced Josh McDaniels for several years and knows exactly what to expect. Jump on this line quickly before the Patriots are favored in this one.
